I'm pursuing a PhD in Clinical Psychology, with concentrations in Clinical Neuropsychology and Statistical Measurement. 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, mild or major neurocognitive (Alzhimer's disease, vascular dementia) and neurodegenerative disorders (multiple sclerosis).
I'm a member of Dr. Lisa Rapport's neuropsychology research lab at Wayne State University. My current research at the Detroit Medical Center Neurology Clinic examines how cognitively-stimulating activities such as artistic endeavours, recreational activities, or religious observance can help buffer the onset of cognitive deficits in individuals with multiple sclerosis. My other research interests include examining the risk factors for poor recovery from concussions, the assessment and diagnosis of co-morbid learning disabilities, the effect of binaural beats on learning and memory, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).
