I offer a developmental perspective in my classes, with a special passion for processes of growth and change in adulthood, spiritual development, relations between spirituality and counseling, and natural therapy.

My career encompasses a diversity of experiences in research, teaching, and counseling, with strong threads of testing and assessment woven throughout my professional activities. In my advising, mentoring, and teaching, my ultimate goal is to help students find their passion in life and to nurture and express that passion. Personally, I enjoy cats, chocolate, travelling, and walking in the woods.
