I am a District of Columbia licensed psychologist (PSY1001192) and have previously practiced in Boston, New York City and Chicago.  I’ve held clinical appointments at Boston Medical Center, Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, Harlem Hospital Center, and Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. I completed my PhD in Clinical Psychology and MA in Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary, Graduate School of Psychology (1999), pre-doctoral internship at Boston University Medical Center (1998), and a post-doctoral fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (2000). I am currently professor of Psychology at Howard University, and have held previous academic appointments at Wheaton College and Columbia University, College of Surgeons and Physicians. In addition to my clinical work, my research and clinical interests for the past 24 years have focused on how persons and communities interact in the context of poverty to influence the mental and physical well-being of persons living with HIV. If you’re interested in more details, see my curriculum vitae or Howard University Faculty Webpage.
