Adjunct Faculty

Dr. Joan Reese, J.D., is an intuitive-creative facilitator and educator. She holds a Juris Doctor degree in law and was a litigator for over seventeen years. She also worked as a mediator for high conflict family law cases. To address differences of perception, observation, understanding, interpreting, and other underlying issues that prevailing models of mediation could not reach, she designed a process that called conflict transformation mapping, which was later adopted by the State of Texas. Joan's interest in decision making for conflict transformation led her to obtain a Ph.D. in Human Science from Saybrook University. At Saybrook she earned a graduate certificates in Creativity Studies and Expressive Arts for Healing and social change. She is a certified instructor for the Enneagram Institute and for the National Guild of Hypnotists. Her transdisciplinary education and experience have led to the development of her Triune Approach to Positive Aspirations: Compatible Methods for Self-Directed Healthy Decision-Making. Joan received training and extensive experience teaching online from University of Phoenix.
