Associate Professor of Psychology

Rosenstock Hall, Room 13


I have both academic and applied interests in the fields of thanatology and gerontology. I have published widely on these topics, have developed and taught several new graduate courses in thanatology and was instrumental in developing Hood's Summer Institute in thanatology.

I am a certified grief therapist and maintain a private practice specializing in dying and grief-related issues. I also consult with several local hospices, nursing homes and the U.S. Veterans Administration, and volunteers for Camp Jamie, a weekend camp for bereaved children sponsored by Hospice of Frederick County.
