Academic Title

  • Assistant Professor of Clinical Practice, Clinical Mental Health Counseling

My recent research focus has been on how athletic identity and ego identity statuses might predict psychological health outcomes among Division I college athletes. Another area of interest is the practice of gatekeeping in counselor education programs. I was recently invited to investigate the exclusionary practices of colleges and universities towards Latinx student populations.
