Heatherlyn Hoffman, PsyD, is a staff Psychologist at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Recreation and Wellness Center. Previously, she was faculty member and the Associate Director of Clinical Training at the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, San Francisco Bay Area Campus. Dr. Hoffman is licensed in both Colorado and California. Originally from the Bahamas, she studied psychology in the Bahamas and Canada before completing her Master’s and Doctorate degrees in the United States. Throughout most of her career she taught courses and supervised graduate clinical psychology students focusing on multiculturalism and diversity. Additionally, most of her professional writing and presentations have focused on multiculturalism and international psychology. She is co-editor of Humanistic Approaches to Multiculturalism and Diversity: Perspectives on Existence and Difference, to be published by Routledge. Especially in light of our current cultural climate, it is important to Dr. Hoffman that psychologists are aware of the issues faced by our marginalized populations, and help to provide education on how best to help clients in these groups. Dr. Hoffman is also a wife and mother with three biracial children, whom she is committed to raising with full awareness of their Bahamian cultural roots.
