Teaching Philosophy:

  • I believe it is important to engage students by creating interaction opportunities for which they will observe and facilitate and by exposing them to experiences from a wide context of professional practice. Engaging them in course content enables broader comprehension than memorization alone, and students appear to be more eager and motivated to learn.

  • Clinical Social Work with Adolescents, Adults, and Families
  • Community Crisis Intervention
  • Group Work
  • Juvenile Justice
