2010 | Department of Psychology – Ryerson University | I teach Introductory Psychology, Personality Theories, Social Psychology, Psychology of Thinking, and Industrial Psychology at Ryerson University. I received my undergraduate honours degree from the University of Guelph with a thesis in the area of Psychology and Law, and later completed graduate studies grounded in a “phenomenological” perspective, at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.
I joined Ryerson in 1986, developed an interest in Jungian theory and became a member of the Jungian Foundation. Over the years, I have taught many of the courses offered in the Psychology department at Ryerson. I have been nominated for Teaching-Excellence Awards over the years. I have been involved with R.U.N. Program, which involved teaching Introductory Psychology to at-risk high school students to encourage them to attend post-secondary education. I have also delivered voluntary lectures for the L.I.F.E. Program. This is a seniors program at Ryerson, where I lecture about Erikson and developmental issues. I am also currently teaching an Adult Developmental Course for the collaborative Ryerson-Centennial Nursing Program.
My personal interests include all forms of Art (though my main focus is literature) and in particular the Jungian approaches to Art. I live with my cat Maya.
