I have been studying and working in the field of mental health for more than 30 years. I earned my bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Nebraska, and a masters and Ph.D. in Family Studies & Human Development at the University of Arizona. For 17 years, I was a tenured associate professor in the Department of Human Development’s Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Virginia Tech in Falls Church, VA. I taught both clinical and research courses, supervised graduate students in their clinical work, and conducted and published research related to military families and adjustment.
