I received my PhD in Historical Theology from University of Northwest in Potchefstroom, South Africa and my Master of Divinity from Africa International University in Nairobi, Kenya. I also have a Masters in Education (Policy Studies) from University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario.
Prior to joining Laurier, I was a research assistant at the University of Western Ontario. The research focused on data analysis to map significant policies of colonial education system in Trinidad and Tobago. This project was sponsored by the World Bank.
I do journal in my spare time and have authored three memoirs and two children’s books. The books are listed in detail in my personal website.
The main focus of my current research is spiritually attuned therapy for individuals living with persistent and recurring mental disorders. It has been documented that spiritual resources may have positive effects on mental and physical health. People living with persistent and challenging mental disorders utilize their spiritual resources for comfort and therapeutic purposes. I focus on individuals who have been or are currently admitted in health institutions for specialized treatment.
I supervise clinical pastoral education students in clinical settings.
I also supervise pastoral counseling students assigned for practicum in mental health units.
