OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMary Beth Haines, PhD

Mary Beth Haines earned her MA and PhD degrees from Fielding Graduate University. She appeared in Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities for 1992-93 academic year.

With more than 25 years working in mental health, Mary Beth has honed her ability to hear not only what was said but also what was underneath the words to get to the heart of a matter. Her background includes working with people with disabilities, physical and emotional, working with people who were gaining familiarity with English language usage, and working in a variety of teaching settings.

Her experiences together strengthened her ability to hear and understand someone, then help translate what she heard from the one person into language that another person or entity could also understand. This doesn’t mean she has a gift with different languages, but with different meaning frameworks, thinking and learning styles, and experiential contexts.
