Favorite part of the job:
I love being able to work with families to help determine the best ways to engage and support their children.
I joined the Wright Psychology and Learning Center in 2021. Since then, and while under the supervision of Dr. Maggie Wright, I have learned and gained great expertise with assessing and diagnosing learning disabilities and neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, and intellectual disabilities in children and adolescents. In addition to these problems, I specialize in evaluating preschool and kindergarten aged children with behavioral difficulties at home and at school. I also have extensive experience working with preteens and teenagers that struggle with symptoms of depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, substance abuse, ADHD, Bipolar disorder, and oppositional and conduct problems. I enjoy working with families and children/adolescents that display problems with sociability, anxiety, behavioral outbursts, giftedness/high ability, and executive functioning (ADHD symptoms).
After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Southern Utah University (2013), I worked at the Maryhurst residential facility for two years. I then went on to receive my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Murray State University (2017). During my Master’s program I worked in the Murray State testing center with young adults with disabilities, the Murray State Psychological Center providing therapy and assessments, and the Community Living in Kentucky (CLiK) program with young adults with autism spectrum disorder. Clinically, I have worked as a Forecast Clinician at Family and Children’s Place, and a Treatment Supervisor/Therapist at Maryhurst Residential campus. I am currently a member of KPA.
Favorite quote or mantra related to this line of work:
“Some days, doing ‘the best we can’ may still fall short of what we would like to be able to do, but life isn’t perfect on any front and doing what we can with what we have is the most we should expect of ourselves or anyone else.” -Mr. Rogers
Family & free time:
I like to spend my time with my family and close friends. I enjoy watching movies, cooking, and completing home projects.
