I am currently scholar and research director in the Office of Educational Research, College of Education at the University of Florida (UF) and Affiliate Faculty in the School of Human Development and Organizational Studies in Education, Counselor Education unit. I am a licensed mental health counselor and qualified supervisor in the state of Florida and a National Certified Counselor.

I have taught courses in Brief Therapy, Counseling Theories, Social and Cultural Foundations (Multicultural Counseling), Research Methods and Program Evaluation, Counseling in Community Settings, Clinical Internship Supervision in Community Counseling, School Counseling and Marriage & Family Therapy, and Mindful Living. My areas of specialization are multicultural spirituality and religion in counseling; complementary therapies and mental health; creativity in counseling and supervision; and counselor burnout.
