Why do we repeat decisions that give us poor results? How do we know we’re ready for change, and when does real learning occur? I hold a lifelong curiosity about the interplay of our emotions, behaviors, and the systems in which we live. While Director at Stanford School of Medicine and Stanford Hospital, I utilized my expertise in human development, psychology, and education to ask these very questions, direct applied research, and implement meaningful change.
My passion for teaching began as a student at Vanderbilt, and continued at Stanford from 2004-2018. As I support clients in my psychotherapy private practice, I continue to collaborate with Stanford on hospital-wide teaching and learning innovations.
Stanford medical students, residents, and fellows: In addition to developing and teaching required curriculum in the pre-clinical years of medical school, I developed and co-directed two electives for clerkship medical students, residents, and fellows. These courses were rated among the top courses in the Medicine Residency program.
Faculty courses (train-the-trainer): I shared my love of teaching with other educators and professors from around the world through the Stanford Faculty Development Center’s train-the-trainer model. Just as I supported professors becoming more attuned to their students, I offer this expertise to (1) parents becoming more attuned to their children through parent support sessions and (2) therapists becoming more attuned to their clients through EMDR consultation.
