Why I Teach
After enjoying a wealth of career experiences as a supervising clinician and mental health program administrator, I discovered a passion for teaching. I see it as the best way to contribute to the field of psychology.
I strive to foster intellectual curiosity and critical thinking, and to promote attitudes of compassion, acceptance and pursuit of social change among my students. Their educational experience becomes more engaging, interactive and personally relevant when I employ collaborative learning that considers alternate perspectives, diversity in individual differences and societal implications.
