Core Faculty, Psy.D. Program

My teaching and mentoring philosophy in general consists of individualizing my instruction and advising to students’ individual career goals, needs, and circumstances, while at the same time aiming to inspire and teach students to become evidence-driven, critically thinking, and socially aware citizens and professionals. In the classroom, I aim to reach students from different backgrounds via a multitude of methods and make the topics lively, interesting, and relevant to their lives. My overall goal is to inspire, support, and facilitate students’ career goals in their chosen direction.

At the Adler School, I am currently teaching Research Methods in Clinical Psychology, Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, and Clinical Skills and Interviewing. In my classes, I strive to create a friendly and supportive learning environment, employ structured didactic and experiential activities, and encourage self-reflection, open dialogue, and scholarly/professional creativity. Working at a social justice oriented institution like Adler is a very exciting and stimulating experience that fosters ongoing personal and professional development, both for students and faculty alike.

My research and scholarly interests include five interrelated applied clinical areas. Specifically, my approximately 30 publications and 50 conference presentations to date have focused on (a) Psychotherapy process and outcome; (b) Use of homework in psychotherapy; (c) Psychotherapy integration; (d) Therapist development /training/supervision, and (e) International/diversity issues in psychology and psychotherapy. In the past, I have worked closely with students in those areas, and I look forward to collaborating and mentoring new students in these and related topics.
