Vancouver | Professor, Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.)
With respect to my teaching philosophy, I believe in a teaching/supervision style that is collaborative, supportive, and collegial. I believe in empowering students to think critically and ethically, and to develop their own clinical style using empirically supported treatments.
I particularly enjoy working with students in the Psy.D. program because of their diversity, energy, and openness to new experiences, and the unique life experiences they bring to the classroom and their clinical work.
My research interests include adult criminal forensic assessment and bringing experimental psychological research to bear on clinical practice; for example, how the area of mood and risky decision making can impact clinical work (i.e., disclosure of sensitive clinical information).
Adler University in Vancouver has been, like Canada itself, born and built with an open mind. Located in the midst of one of the world’s most exciting and breathtaking cities, Adler University reflects a true Canadian spirit. It’s smart, inclusive and determined to make a world of difference. By design, our Vancouver campus echoes the Adler values and intent down every hall and in every room. It is built to live, breathe and inspire those with the passion to pursue a more just society. This is where the work gets done.
At Adler Vancouver, you’ll find multiple collaborative areas with the absolute latest technology. Learning areas and windows have literally been situated to stimulate thought. To some, that may sound odd, but these things do matter. If students are given the space, opportunity and technology to achieve their goals, they are more likely to rock the boat of conventional thought.
