Adjunct Instructor of Psychology at Marple and Pennocks Bridge Campuses As a full time Clinical Manager in a Children's Behavioral Health program, I oversee the clinical needs of over 160 cases. My caseload includes a variety of mental and behavioral health diagnoses including, but not limited to, Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Bipolar Disorder and Anxiety Disorders. I consult with a team of clinicians who work in the home, school and community in order to develop evidence based interventions through the use of functional behavioral assessments. I also develop and conduct clinical and parent trainings on a variety of topics including Trauma Informed Care, Working with Individuals with Autism, ADHD and Disruptive Behavior Disorders, Reducing Parent Stress and Transferring Skills to Parents and Caregivers.

Theoretical Approach, Experience, and Temperament
I believe the classroom experience should be an interactive one which honors the life experience each student brings to the table. My classes encourage lively discussion, debate, and humor and demand the use of critical thinking skills. My goal is to give each student an opportunity to truly think about things in a new way, as well as to use the information they have learned in my classroom in their everyday lives, regardless of their vocational aspirations.
