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 counselor education. I also currently serve as department chair.
My research focuses on constructive meaning-based approaches in psychology and counseling, especially their applications to understanding abnormality and psychotherapy. I recently authored a textbook, Abnormal Psychology: Contrasting Perspectives, published by Red Globe Press, an imprint of Macmillan International Higher Education.
I am a licensed psychologist in New York (where I maintain a small private practice), managing editor of the Journal of Constructivist Psychology, and President-elect of the Society for Humanistic Psychology (Division 32 of the American Psychological Association).
