My professional activities in psychology include more than 23 years experience over a broad range of psychological services including administrative positions within corrections, residential psychiatric and developmental disabilities, as well as direct services in independent practice. Professional activities since December 2004, have involved forensic psychology, teaching, and volunteer services. To maintain currency in evidenced based practice, I have attended numerous trainings and workshops in assessment, psychotherapy, and forensic psychology. (A list of CEU’s is available upon request.)


My work in state agencies (August 1996 - December 2004) included administrative, mental health, and forensic services within Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC), Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS), and IDHS Developmental Disabilities (IDHS-DD).

While with IDOC, I acquired experience implementing state law. I was assigned to work with a steering committee of professionals from five agencies; IDOC,IDHS, Governor’s Office, Attorney General, and Office of Budget to implement the Sexually Violent Persons Civil Commitment 
Act (725 ILCS 207/5).

Within IDHS, I acquired experience in treatment of mental illness and substance abuse, forensic assessments of NGRI for conditional release, and other forensic matters related to mental illness and developmental disabilities.

Independent PRACTICE

Since licensure, October 1987, I have provided a range of psychological services as an independent contractor and full and part time employee. These activities have included psychotherapy, teaching, and forensic assessments.

In forensic proceedings for both prosecution and defense, I have provided court related assessments, reports, and testified in both adult and juvenile proceedings in areas including fitness to stand trial, sanity, and risk for violence. Also, I have evaluated law enforcement officers for fitness for duty and provided psychological services related to sentencing mitigation in capital offenses.

On a part-time basis, since 1991, I have volunteered psychological services for political refugees who are survivors of torture and other violence.
