I teach to get students to retain the best of the information presented and use it to become better professionals in the field of counseling. My teaching is student centered. I bring in my experience in the field of counseling to help my students gain understanding of their future work as mental health, college and school counselors.
Current Research Interests/Projects
I have written a book titled "Native American and Canadian Medicine Men, Healers and Helpers" (Lap Lambert Academic Publishing, 2013), which is available at www.morebooks.de. I am presently editing "Mentoring Future Counselors," a handbook that will be available to future counselors, counselors in the field, and alumni of counselor education programs. The book comprises about 40 chapters written by counselor educators from all over the world. I am also working with three other writers on another manuscript on mentoring international students
Other Interests/Community Involvement
I am a board member for National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) for Cattaraugus County. I like to work out at the Richter Center on the St. Bonaventure campus
