As a university professor, I have been involved in collecting, analyzing, and writing about data in the area of psychology for the past 15 years. I also serve as an ad hoc reviewer, assistant editor, and consultant for a number of scientific journals. And I have provided consulting services for companies to determine the effectiveness of their programs and their interventions and worked with businesses to enhance employee skills. I have considerable background and training in affirmative therapy, assessment and measurement, research design, multicultural training, multicultural assessment and evaluation, ethics, and empirically supported and empirically based treatments for psychological disorders. Much of my research has focused on the relationship between access to care, aspects of marginalization, and social supports and how those aspects influence well-being.
