Chicago | Associate Professor, Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.)
My interest in teaching comes from my desire to prepare students to do meaningful work in social, educational, and mental health climates that more often opt for superficial engagement. Rather than reflect these climates, I hope to prepare students to question and creatively address them. I hope to convey this is in both the content I teach as well as in my approach to the material and in what I embody as a clinician and teacher.
I believe this kind of teaching and learning happens in relationship. I enjoy and actively foster my relationships with students. I am available to mentor, support, and challenge students as they undergo the educational and developmental processes required to become effective and ethical clinicians.
I teach at Adler because its mission supports critical and creative thinking about the climates we live, learn, and practice in, as well as a relationship-based approach to education. I appreciate the opportunity to work and teach in a thoughtful climate focused on excellence and integrity.
