About me

Gender Female
Location United States
Introduction I am a Psychology Professor at a small Liberal Arts College. My area of specialization is Developmental Psychology - mostly focused on children and families. In the past 20 years I have worked in residental, partial residential, private practice and community mental health centers as therapist, program manager, Executive Director, and advocate. These experiences allowed me to work within the "Systems" of our government, schools and courts. I spent nearly five years managing a treatment foster care program for delinquent and mentally ill adolescents, worked in substance abuse treatment centers and reunification of parents and children. It's been an eye opening life and let me tell you, it's not been pretty - but very educational. During these years I was also able to work with kids with extreme special needs, from gifted and talented to autistic and developmentally delayed. Oh the stories I could tell - and I will, just to open the doors to begin the dialouge of change.
Interests children, families, psychology, cooking, aroma therapy, herb gardening, poetry, short stories, folk music, laughing, photography, silliness, life.
