A Little Bit About Me

Welcome to my webpage.  If you are thinking about taking one of my classes, you may be interested in knowing a little bit about me.  I was once a CCSF student too, but many, many, many years ago.  Batmale Hall didn't exist when I was studying here!  I really enjoyed my time as a student at CCSF, and I hope you will take advantage of the opportunities that are being offered to you now as a student.  As life gets more hectic, you may find it difficult to make the time to benefit from being in college.

I trained as a clinical psychologist, but decided that teaching was a better fit for me for now. My work as a therapist has dovetailed very nicely with the theories and research that are presented in the psychology courses that I teach, and you will probably see this influence in the way I present the material. But the cool thing is that you don't have to be a therapist to recognize how psychology has relevance in our lives: it's about being a human being - which you must be, if you're reading this!

You should also know that even though I like to joke around, as your psychology professor, I take my role very seriously.  My job is to help you prepare for future classes, whether in psychology or at a 4-year university.  You can expect that my classes will not be easy: you can learn a lot and you will find it interesting, but be prepared to work - I hope you will find it worthwhile!
