I am a clinical psychologist, Bay Area native, and have been an instructor with Foothill
College since 2018. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Augsburg
College in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and both my Master of Arts degree in Counseling
Psychology and Ph.D. in Counseling, Clinical, and School Psychology from the University
of California, Santa Barbara.
I approach the field as a scientist-practitioner, and as such, I divide my professional
time between teaching, research, and clinical practice (assessment and psychotherapy).
I appreciate the applied nature of the field of psychology and the broad professional
opportunities available. I am also a lifelong learner. I enjoy continued involvement
in a variety of professional activities as well as reading for fun, listening to podcasts,
gardening, cooking, running, and ice hockey.
My passion for education spans beyond the instruction and dissemination of knowledge;
I believe that the ultimate goal of education is not the accumulation of facts alone,
but the cultivation of curiosity, an appreciation of learning, and the application
of knowledge and experience to life, one’s community, and various “real-world” circumstances.
My courses are structured for students to think in this manner and I find introducing
students to psychology to be particularly exciting and fulfilling.
I appreciate your interest in my courses. To streamline the process and ensure efficiency
