Hello! My name is Andrea Rashtian. I am a licensed counseling psychologist and have been teaching at CSUN since 2004 in the Psy. Dept. and in CADV since 2014. In addition to teaching at CSUN, I am also an instructor at UCLA and LACC. I primarily teach undergraduate courses in Psychology and Child Development. My career paths have taken me to many college settings, and I have also worked as a social worker for the Department of Children and Family Services.
As a Counseling Psychologist, I work with a diverse population in a private practice setting. I specialize in over 24 years of working with survivors of physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, and utilizing CBT techniques to decrease their symptoms and improve their quality of life. To all of the courses that I teach, I bring a clinical and a research-based perspective to personalize material for my students. My research interests include the effects of social media on student anxiety, neurofeedback use in decreasing symptoms, and night terrors in infants.
My teaching style as a Professor is to create an open environment to invite dialogue and challenge my students to process and personalize information they are reading about. I want to encourage students to explore the many career opportunities in the field of Psychology and Child Development. I truly have a passion to teach, and I expect students to be fully engaged in classroom activities and discussions. I see the teaching environment as a two-way street.
