I am a New Jersey-licensed psychologist and have been providing services to late adolescents, young adults, and adults for over 17 years, 6 of which also involved providing consultation to a Division-I university's Career Services Department and consultation and psychological services to that university's athletic division's Sports Medicine Department and its athletes. I have also served on a university-wide religious life council and conducted spirituality support groups for people from diverse faith expressions.
