Joan is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the State of Minnesota. She has been practicing in the field for more than 35 years. After many failed attempts to learn Spanish, Joan began studying with Luis and knew during her first class she would have success. In less than one year Joan was using her Spanish with clients and collogues. She has met the CEU requirements to keep her psychology license current by studying and doing practicum work in Spain and Argentina, and for the last 5 years has worked exclusively with clients who are monolingual Spanish speakers at La Familia Guidance Center in St. Paul. Joan works alongside Luis and offers the all important ‘student perspective’ so the balance between what is taught and what is learned is always optimized.
