I have worked at nine institutions of higher education doing counseling, advising, administration, and teaching so I think I have a broad perspective.  I have been staff and now I am faculty.  Some people have said I have gone over to the dark side of the force but I prefer to think of it as seeing the big picture.  I love teaching and I love working with students.  I try to bring humor and sensitivity to my classroom and teach them something in the process.  I am a licensed clinical psychologist and I have a private practice in Lombard.
