Originally from Montreal, Canada, where I studied Psychology and Women's Studies as an undergraduate, I ended up in Boston by way of New York City, Washington, DC and Atlanta.
After finishing my undergraduate degree at McGill University, I went on complete my master's degree in Counseling Psychology. After graduation, I decided to move to the United States to pursue my doctoral degree. I completed my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at Columbia University where I continued to be engaged in research projects in the areas of gender studies and multiculturalism. I worked on research studies focusing on women and work, Asian American identity, and sexual minority discrimination within a therapeutic context. I continue to work on research projects and present at conferences.
Most recently, I presented a workshop about "Social Justice Advocacy On Campus" at an Association of Women in Psychology conference and I had an article published in the Journal of Counseling Psychology, entitled "Effects of Client Bisexuality on Clinical Judgment: When Is Bias Most Likely to Occur?" (2009).
I worked as an intern and a postdoctoral fellow at several different college counseling centers helping students with everything from their adjustment to college, to serious anxiety and depression. I am licensed psychologist, although I am not currently practicing because I am completely dedicated to teaching.
I am so excited to be the Program Director of Fisher's exciting new Bachelor's degree in Human Services. As a relatively new field, Human Services combines Counseling, Psychology, and Social Work, making it a very diverse and practical degree. I hope to incorporate my multicultural lens into the program, infusing this framework throughout the coursework. I look forward to guiding my students through the program, and preparing them for the path that they choose, whether it is working in the field immediately, or graduate studies.
