I am a professor in the Department of Psychology at the State University of New York at New Paltz, where I teach classes in psychology and counseling. I also currently serve as department chair.
My research focuses on constructivism in psychology and counseling, especially its applications to understanding abnormality and psychotherapy. Constructivists assume that people never know the world independent of a perspective or framework. Thus, they study how people construct meaningful ways to understand
themselves and their world.
