Dr. Nancy Carbonell was born and raised in California, but has come to love the seasons here in Michigan, where she has lived since 1980.  Nancy always aspired to be a teacher and is happy to look back over her career and realize that she has taught at all grade levels—from pre-school to graduate studies. She enjoys the students and classes she teaches in the Department Graduate Psychology and Counseling, at Andrews University, and believes learning is a life-long process.

In addition to teaching, Nancy is a fully licensed psychologist maintaining a part-time private practice in the community.  This experience enhances her teaching and supervising abilities with students who are psychologists or counselors-in-training.  She has published in the areas of family life, racial issues, and the power of self-talk.  Her research interests include understanding diversity, the affect of values and beliefs on multicultural relations, and the ethical training of counselors.
