About Me

"Foster a healthy curiosity about yourself, others, and the world so that your life remains interesting, enjoyable, and fulfilling" - Susan Thomas


I am part-time faculty in the Psychology Department. I have several years of teaching behind me, having taught: group facilitators, high school students, college students, and junior high school students.

I am also a consultant and trainer who has facilitated, trained and taught a variety of groups and individuals over the past 20 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 addition, I have also worked in event planning, mediation, and mental health counseling. I hold a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from Northwestern University in Chicago.
