Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I received my PhD from the Centre for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto in 1994.
In addition to teaching at Laurier, I have a private practice as a psychoanalyst in Toronto.
Research Interests / Ongoing Projects
My research interests are in the areas of psychology and religion, particularly psychoanalytic perspectives on religion, and grief, death and dying.
