WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE.
I teach Psychology here at Inver Hills and on this website you will find "basic" syllabi, my office phone number, my e-mail address, and my background. The courses I typically teach are: General Psychology, Child and Adolescent Psychology, Adulthood and Aging Psychology, and Social Psychology.
Overall, I love talking with students, and sincerely encourage you to call me if you have any questions at all about any of the information on this website. I tell my students that I would rather see them twenty times than none over the course of the semester, and I mean it. So, even if you aren't a student of mine, please don't hesitate to call me if you have questions at all.
My office phone number is: 651-450-8602.
My e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
(Over the summer break, I may take a little bit longer to get back to you, but during the year, it typically is fairly quick.)
Also, are links to my syllabi from: General Psychology Spring 2006; Child & Adolescent Psychology Spring 2006; Adulthood & Aging Psychology Spring 2006; and Social Psychology Fall 2005. These will hopefully give you some general ideas about the expectations for my courses. Again, please call if you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them.
My educational background is:
BA in Psychology and Sociology (Majors); Criminology & Anthropology (Minors) from UMD
MA in Counseling Psychology from University of St. Thomas
Ph.D. in Psychology from Murdoch University, Perth, Australia
My experience as an instructor is:
I have taught at a few different places, ranging from a tech school to a Masters' program, and I've taught both here and in Australia. My favorite places to teach? I'm being sincere: here (knock on wood!!) & Murdoch University (Perth, Australia.) If you want to know why, you'll have to call me!!!
My experience as a therapist is:
I worked as a therapist for several years. The clientele I have worked with include: juvenile delinquents (offenses included burglary, car theft, sex offenses, etc.); children (often abuse cases); and adults (issues from ranged from phobias to relationship problems to career changes, and so forth). I have experience working one-to-one, groups, couples, family, and family group.
I can't think of anything else that would be relevant, so thank you for visiting my website.
