I enjoy teaching a variety of courses including Introduction to Psychopathology, Child Psychopathology, Counseling Theory & Practice, Research Methods, Introduction to Psychology and Community Psychology. My favorite classroom environment is one in which I can really get to know my students and aid them in reaching not only their academic goals but also their life goals as well.
