Meet the MS Clinical Faculty

We currently have six full time faculty in the MS Clinical Psychology program. All faculty teach multiple classes in the graduate program and participate in both mentoring and case consultations with second year students. Each faculty member evaluates first and second year comprehensive exams and is essential in the graduate students into our program.
