Personal Statement

I have had a longstanding interest in diversity and multiculturalism as it influences psychotherapy, leadership, women's issues and ethnic minority issues. The integration of research, practice, service, and teaching is reflected in my scholarship. My leadership roles as director of a community health center, a child guidance clinic, and as dean has been applied to my current research on leadership, and contribution to professional psychology and public policy on such issues as health care reform, health disparities, and mental health. As a clinician, I am interested in transference and countertransference issues, and integrating contextual factors of race, ethnicity, and gender in promoting therapeutic change.
