I provide individual and group therapy, coaching, assessment and academic screenings to support students with disabilities (physical, chronic, psychiatric, and invisible). A large percentage of the students served by the mental health unit have psychiatric disabilities or co-morbid psychiatric disabilities and need mental health support to be successful at the University. In addition, many University of students with academic difficulties and no prior diagnosis are seen and assessed through the academic screening and assessment process. I also am the Director of supervision, training and coordination of counseling psychology and clinical psychology graduate students of the United States who have practicums at SCDD and APA-accredited school psychology pre-doctoral interns.
