(fax) 310-640-8694

I received both my BA in Psych (1981) and MS in I/O Psych (1984) from CSULB.  After working a number of years in computer programming and marketing research positions in the health care industry, I went to Fuller Theological Seminar for my MA in Theology (1997) and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology (2000). 

I currently work full-time as an Internet based-business as an academic and marketing research consultant for clients around the country and some internationally.  It’s mostly doing the statistical analyses for thesis and dissertation projects (,  I also have taught research/statistics courses part-time at LMU in their Department of Education for the last seven years and a year ago began doing the same at Pepperdine University.

MA-Theology thesis title and abstract:
Assessment of Child Molesters with the MMPI-2: Critical Items, Special Scales, and Forensic Implications
     This study examined 237 Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory-2 (MMPI-2) protocols taken during the forensic assessment of men accused of felony child molestation. Three groups were derived: a Preference-Mediated Offender (PMO) group, a Situationally-Mediated Offender (SMO) group, and a Doubtful Offender (DO) group. These 3 groups were compared against 3 matched-control groups ( n = 237) taken from the MMPI-2 restandardization process. Total subjects were N = 474. Several special sexual pathology scales were found to discriminate offenders from nonoffenders ( p < .001). In addition, 2 new scales were developed which discriminated evaluated subjects from controls and PMO/SMO subjects from DO subjects. The forensic implications were discussed.

    Psych Day will be held Thursday, April 16, 2015 in the Psychology Building Quad. Festivities include a graduate and volunteer fair, workshops, games and special speakers, beginning at 10:00 am. A buffet lunch will be offered for a small donation from 11:00 until 2:00. The keynote speaker, Dr. Collie Conoley, will present his research on Goal Focused Positive Psychotherapy at 4:00 pm in the Beach Auditorium.
