Why I Teach What I Teach

At the top of my syllabi, I include a quote: "May you discover your own special abilities and contribute them toward a better world." I am hopeful that my students will not only learn some psychological theories but develop self-knowledge and a better sense of their own lives and direction, as well. Everyone has unique gifts, and my goal is to encourage each individual.


Something People Might Not Know About Me

I am also a practicing psychotherapist. The real-life experience enhances my teaching.
