I am a licensed psy­chol­o­gist, with a spe­cial­ized focus in neu­ropsy­chol­o­gy. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Polit­i­cal Sci­ence from DePaul Uni­ver­si­ty in Chica­go. I was sub­se­quent­ly trained at both the Mas­ter and Doc­tor­al lev­el in clin­i­cal psy­chol­o­gy through Mid­west­ern Uni­ver­si­ty in Down­ers Grove, Illi­nois. I am flu­ent in both Pol­ish and Eng­lish, which gives me par­tic­u­lar sen­si­tiv­i­ty to issues of cul­tur­al diver­si­ty and immi­gra­tion. I trained and have worked in a vari­ety of set­tings, includ­ing com­mu­ni­ty out­reach oppor­tu­ni­ties offered dur­ing under­grad­u­ate stud­ies, pri­vate prac­tice, inpa­tient and out­pa­tient psy­chi­a­try units, a region­al com­mu­ni­ty men­tal health orga­ni­za­tion, skilled nurs­ing facil­i­ties, con­va­les­cent homes, assist­ed liv­ing res­i­dences, and through a diverse net­work of train­ing sites as a post-doc­tor­al res­i­dent through the Ari­zona Psy­cho­log­i­cal Train­ing Consortium.

Clinical Interests

My cur­rent inter­est is in eval­u­at­ing and admin­is­ter­ing assess­ments to the adult to old­er adult pop­u­la­tion that may present with neu­rode­gen­er­a­tive dis­or­ders (demen­tias), neu­ro­log­i­cal con­di­tions, autoim­mune dis­or­ders, car­dio­vas­cu­lar com­pli­ca­tions (includ­ing cere­brovas­cu­lar accidents/​strokes), and trau­mat­ic brain injuries. He spe­cial­izes in move­ment dis­or­ders, acute med­ical reha­bil­i­ta­tion, medico-legal eval­u­a­tions, pre-sur­gi­cal assess­ments, and mat­ters of deci­sion­al capacity/​competency. I pro­mote a proac­tive approach to neu­rocog­ni­tive test­ing, work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly with treat­ing physi­cians, fel­low pro­fes­sion­als, cor­rob­o­ra­tive infor­mants, and fam­i­lies to pro­vide indi­vid­u­als with the most com­pre­hen­sive treat­ment. In ensur­ing opti­mal care for my patients, I pro­vide adap­tive rec­om­men­da­tions to accom­mo­date for any lim­i­ta­tions that may be present, assist patients and their fam­i­lies to under­stand the nature of a client’s exact con­di­tion, and strive to be an advo­cate on the patient’s behalf fol­low­ing the com­plet­ing of testing.
