Prior to becoming a licensed clinical psychologist, I worked in the business sector for 3 decades providing people strategies and solutions to support businesses both as an internal and external consultant. Coupling my prior work history along with my credentials, I continue to support business leaders. As a psychologist trained to administer assessments, I often administer and interpret the WorkPlace Big Five™ assessment family and corresponding reports which are beneficial for my private practice clients and business leaders.
