A Little Bit about Me,
A Little Bit About New Life
I am currently enjoying a postdoctoral fellowship at New Life Institute in Austin, Texas. Although I am a native Texan, I received my undergraduate degree from Boston University in Massachusetts. Upon graduation, I enrolled at The University of Texas School of Law. I practiced employment law briefly before returning to school to study psychology (my law license is on “inactive” status). Upon the completion of coursework and practica, I was accepted to an APPIC accredited internship at Girard Medical Center in Philadelphia. There I worked with inpatients diagnosed with serious mental illnesses as well as outpatients struggling with complex trauma and loss. In November 2018, I graduated from APA accredited Fielding Graduate University with a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. In May of 2019, I became provisionally licensed as a psychologist in the state of Texas (license #38826).
At New Life, I am mentored and supervised by Raymond C. Hawkins, II, Ph.D., ABPP. Dr. Hawkins is a licensed and board certified psychologist who is on the faculty at both The University of Texas and Fielding Graduate University. New Life is a nonprofit counseling center, located within a stone’s throw of the campus at UT. Dr. Hawkins and I accept Aetna, Bluecross Blueshield, United Healthcare, and Humana insurance. During the pandemic, we are meeting with clients online using a HIPAA compliant video therapy platform. My schedule is flexible to accommodate working people and students.
