  • Professor of Psycholoty, Muhlenberg College

I teach Psychotherapy and Counseling, Abnormal Psychology, Introductory Psychology, History of Psychology, and Clinical Research. I grew up in Red Lodge, Montana , a small town in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains. I attended St. Olaf College, a small liberal arts college in Minnesota, where I double-majored in psychology and religion and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. I also studied in Egypt, India, Taiwan, and Japan. After spending a year working on a psychiatric unit, I moved to southern California to begin graduate school at a church-related university, Fuller Theological Seminary. I studied both clinical psychology and theology, earning an M.A. in the latter and a Ph.D. in the former. After completing a clinical psychology internship at the University of Minnesota, I worked as a psychotherapist on psychiatric units, engaged in a private practice, and taught part-time at the college and university levels. For several years, I maintained a small clinical practice in a United-Way funded, sliding scale family counseling center in Allentown. I began teaching at Muhlenberg in 1989. I am married to Maria. Our son, William David Tjeltveit, was born two days after graduation in 1998; our daughter, Anna Maria Tjeltveit, was born on Election Day, 2000 (no recount necessary!).
