Research Interests:

The development of community interventions for individuals with schizophrenia and their families; the influence of social networks and family relationships on psychological well-being in adulthood.

Teaching Philosophy:

I try to create a classroom environment where students can translate their implicit theories, observations and experiences into the language of psychology. My goal is to help students to master new ways of thinking about behavior and to integrate what they are learning into their existing knowledge base. In graduate teaching, I work to create opportunities for students to recognize and build upon their skills as researchers and clinicians. For me, creating such educational settings requires that I listen and learn as much as lecture and know. Teaching is a deeply personal experience that allows me to share my expertise, my respect for the strengths of students, and the excitement that I have for psychology.
