Biography

I earned my B.A. from Eastern Michigan University, my M.S. from San Francisco State University and my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Ball State University. My research broadly covers topics within counseling psychology including career development, feminist identity development, multicultural competence and cross-cultural issues in counseling. I am always open to having students assist me with my research. My clinical training includes community and university counseling center work. I am a generalist with clinical interests in career decision-making, cultural adjustment, self-esteem, and relationship issues. In addition to my teaching, research and service activities at Sage, I maintain a small psychotherapy practice in Troy.

I am co-advisor of the Psychology Club and regularly teach the following classes:

Undergraduate
PSY 275 – Proseminar: Personal Pathways – Psychology
PSY 304 – Counseling Theory & Practice

Graduate
PSY 543 – Career Counseling
PSY 571 – Theories of Counseling
PSY 572 – Assessment in Counseling
