Thank you for visiting this site.  I would like to assist you as you continue to grow emotionally or resolve a situation that is causing you pain or discomfort.  Together, we can create a way for you to move forward.  In 2003 I graduated with a Ph. D. in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in depth psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, California.  After completing a post doctoral training at State University of New York Oswego, I earned a license to practice psychology in the State of New York (2007). Later I earned a license to practice as a Senior Psychologist in North Carolina (2020). 



I am Emeritus Associate Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction at State University of New York at Oswego.  I conduct research in the fields of education and psychology.  In addition to edited chapters, I have written two award winning books titled Imaginal Figures in Everyday Life: Stories from the World between Matter and Mind, an exploration of the inner figures that want to make us wise, and The Mythmaker a novel which shows the healing power of psyche as we navigate through grief.
