Lecturer, department of Psychology, Daystar University

Education
-Ph.D Clinical Psychology from Daystar University
-MA Counseling Psychology from Daystar University
-Bachelor of Laws from University of Nairobi

I hold a doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Daystar University (2016). I lecture in the same University and as such I supervise both Masters and Doctoral students’ dissertations. I lecture in all levels from undergraduate to doctoral level.

I am currently involved in two research projects, investigating certain psychological concepts in our context. I have published two papers from my doctoral work which was about testing effective psychological therapeutics for depression and anxiety in the Kenyan setting.

I also practice psychotherapy for a wide range of problems among individuals, groups, couples and families in a practice called Wemapsych Psychological Service. This includes conducting psychological assessment for personality and mental disorders.

I am also a lawyer who is able to inculcate requisite legal principles in my teaching, practice and research. I practiced law from 1995 to 2010. It was In the course of interacting with peoples’ legal issues that I realized my need to study psychology and therefore my two disciplines interact well.

Additionally, I am a certified mediator skilled in conducting mediations among individuals and families in conflict.
My overarching desire in academia is to see to psychological and multi-disciplinary research that is relevant and usable for the African context.
