About Me


Before specializing in psychology, I obtained my PhD in Neuroscience from the University of London. Shortly after graduation, I was invited to work at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Following the NIH, I focused on stroke research in California, spending several years studying what happens to the brain following a stroke. Some of this work received recognition in the scientific community and I was eventually honored to receive a "National Interest Waiver" that allowed me to stay in the United States permanently.

Eventually, I decided to look at mental health in a radically different way and obtained a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Dominican University. The integration between how the brain works and psychology is a fast growing, exciting field which is a source of passion and fascination for me.

When I’m not working, you'll find me reading and creating art. I have a family with two dogs and love watching ice hockey (Go Capitals!). I can't skate to save my life, however!
