Teaching Statement

My work as a counselor educator is designed to begin students on the path of discovering themselves and their abilities as counselors, giving them the skills and knowledge they need to be strong practitioners and leaders in the field. Each course is a combination of theory, approach, and practice as is relevant to the course subject. Additionally, the course content is tied directly into the personal experience of the students, as well as my own experiences in the field, in order to develop better understanding of themselves and the course material.
My didactic style tends to be discussion-based, incorporating experiential activities, technology, and conversation to help students fully understand and implement the concepts. Additionally, I explain to all of my students that my goal is that they begin and continue to build their counseling “toolbox” while they work with me in class. When my classes are complete, my students will have tools that include activities, games, assessments, and skills that they can use in their work with clients.
