Congratulations on pursuing your education. This is something that can never be taken away. I believe every student can be successful in my courses and others...but it will take a commitment from you.

I am full-time faculty in the Psychology Department as of fall quarter 2020, but have taught part-time at De Anza since winter quarter 2016. I have several additional years of teaching behind me, having taught: group facilitators, high school students, college students, and junior high school students.
Prior to teaching at De Anza, I was a consultant and corporate trainer who facilitated, trained and taught a variety of groups and individuals over 25 years. My specific area of expertise is in interpersonal interaction, including topics of: communication, problem solving, values clarification, leadership, stress management, team building, and conflict resolution. I am particularly sensitive to multicultural issues, having lived, worked, and taught abroad (in Japan and Uganda).
In addition, I have worked in event planning, mediation, and mental health counseling. I hold a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Northwestern University in Chicago.
