I'm pursuing a PhD in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Clinical Neuropsychology. In my clinical work, I provide assessment and therapy services to adult and child clients with learning disabilities, ADHD, and behavioral difficulties, as well as individuals who have suffered from traumatic brain injuries (concussions), strokes, and neurodegenerative disorders (mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, multiple sclerosis).
I'm a member of Dr. Lisa Rapport's neuropsychology research lab, where we collaborate with researchers and clinicians from the Wayne State University School of Medicine and Harper University Hospital Neurology Clinic. My current research examines how intellectual-enriching leisure activities can help buffer the onset of cognitive deficits in people with multiple sclerosis.
