Originally a clinician with a private practice specializing in eating disorders, I am now affiliated with Transformative Social Change, where I teach courses on sustainability and ecopsychology, and with Creativity Studies, where I teach Creativity and Social Change. I also serve on thesis and dissertation committees on a wide range of topics.

My publications include journal articles, books on eating disorders and sustainable food, a biography, a policy paper on endangered species, and a thriller about stopping the smuggling of endangered species (the last under the pen name Lindsay Crane).
