Professional Experience:

Prior to teaching I was a family therapist with the Office of Youth Alternatives. I have also been director of a residential youth treatment facility and a suicide prevention center, both in Fort Collins, Colo. These experiences have informed my approach to teaching psychology as not just an area of study – the scientific study of human behavior, but as a way of living – being aware of human behavior, by others and ourselves, as an ongoing source of data for that study.
