Helping the next generation of students develop into professional, competent, and compassionate mental health professionals is a great responsibility. My teaching philosophy is to challenge students to grow intellectually, emotionally, and behaviorally into complete clinicians. Becoming a mental health professional requires a unique set of personal qualities that students strive to develop at Adler University.
My professional interests include the intersection of the field of psychology with the law. Mental health professionals have much to offer clients at all levels of the criminal justice system. As a clinical psychologist who has professionally participated with the state and federal courts, the department of corrections, and the department of human services the future of psychology and the law is of the utmost importance to me. My goal as a faculty member at Adler University is to help students develop into clinically competent, ethically based, and socially responsible professionals with the ability to interact with the criminal justice system.
