I have been a counselor educator for the past 10 years and have found great joy helping students discover themselves and their ability to make a difference in the lives of the clients and in the society. I think my greatest joy comes from hearing from past students about their work and the difference they are making. In some cases, past students are now supervisors guiding those who are have come after them in their professional development. Our programs in the Department of counseling and Human Services is needed now more than ever. I consider it a great privilege to engage in this work every day and each year I look forward to interacting with new students as they begin their journey towards their goal of becoming professional counselors. I'm also delighted to be working with a group of faculty members who bring a varied cross section of Interdisciplinary expertise that provides a rich learning environment for our students. My own background as a pastoral counselor influences my areas of interest in the field of mental health. I seek to combine and integrate spiritual ideas that lie at the core of human experience into the task of therapy. I seek to help students become more aware of such ideas and how to address them in their work. As an administrator in this department, my goal for us to be to be ever evolving, and responsive to the changes in our discipline and the society.
