It is my great honor to accept the Division’s nomination for APA Council of Representatives. I have had the privilege of serving as the Division’s Secretary since 2014. This has afforded me the opportunity to learn about the intricacies and governance of APA, as well as the valuable mission of Division 49 and its members. The field of Group Psychology and Group Psychotherapy is incredibly important given its impact on so many aspects of daily life, societal norms and interpersonal dynamics. Being an advocate for and casting my votes with the needs and interest of the Division and its members would be my priority. I am passionate about and committed to the Division, and look forward to the opportunity to continue my service here. I am a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Florida where my primary role includes coordinating the 30+ therapy groups run each semester through the Counseling and Wellness Center. Group Therapy is my passion and I enjoy teaching, supervising and presenting yearly at APA and AGPA in this area.
