TrineOnline - Psychology and Sociology
BS, Indiana University; MS, Northwest Missouri State University; MBA, Baker College
I have been in the field of addictions for 30 years, providing direct service in individual and group therapy; performing administrative functions at the local, county, regional and state level in Michigan; contracted with Community Corrections to provide group and individual services in Steuben County; and have had a small private practice emphasizing brief therapy and education. I have been licensed in Indiana as a Clinical Addiction Counselor.
I have taught as an adjunct faculty member in three colleges in three separate states: Nebraska, Michigan and Indiana. I have instructed students on-ground for nine years and online for 12 years. I have taught a variety of courses during that time with an emphasis on Addiction, Counseling and Human Services. I also facilitate the Capstone Demonstration Course online at Trine University for the Bachelor of Psychology degree.
Being an addictions professional has given me the opportunity to see dramatic changes in individuals and their lives as they move toward a more balanced life and a natural support system.
My leisure time for balance includes kayaking, fishing, boating in the area lakes, ACBL Bridge Tournaments, Mahjong groups and music.
