I think I was already trying to be a psychologist and musician by the time I was three years old. I don't know how much “deciding” there really was.
Dynamic psychotherapy, clinical supervision, and professional issues, shame and human attachment patterns, and executive function and habits, mindfulness, and attention in music.
I am always working on a clinical paper. These are areas in which undergraduate students are not prepared to contribute and graduate students must have special interest. For the fall of 2020, my working drafts are related to termination of supervision,
supervision of substance abuse therapeutics, and dynamics of studio music instruction.
I will be collecting data in the fall of 2020 pertaining to the interpersonal dimensions of self-conscious emotions.
My other projects are largely associated with the areas of interest noted above. Undergraduate students interested in working with me must either 1) identify a project of mine in which they have interest and is at a suitable stage of development and contact
me about working on the project, or 2) have a project concept that is closely linked to an ongoing project.
I serve in a number of service roles. In addition to service to my department, I am a site visitor for the Commission on Accreditation of the American Psychological Association, a work sample reviewer and examiner for the American Board of Professional
Psychology, Secretary of the American Board of Counseling Psychology, a member of the Ethics Committee of the Pennsylvania Psychological Association, a member of PASSHE’s Academic Program Review Committee, and a consultant to Indiana County Children
and Youth Services.
