I am currently core faculty in the Clinical Psychology program and was Director of Clinical Training in our program for nearly three years. I have been teaching both graduate and undergraduate courses at Argosy for over ten years and was Chair of Undergraduate Psychology for three years. I have previously taught Pro-group, Practicum Seminars, Counseling Theories, Interviewing Techniques, Ethics in Psychology, Gender Psychology, Social Psychology, Life Span Development, Family Violence, Couples and family Therapy and Undergraduate Capstone courses. In my former clinical work, I provided individual, couples, group and family therapy in a variety of settings including community agencies, day treatment centers, psychological service centers and forensic settings. Theoretically, I identify as an integrationist and my wide-ranging clinical interests include trauma treatment, multi-cultural work, couples and family, spiritual integration, clinical training and supervision.
