Where is your hometown?
Grand Rapids, MI
Who is your advisor?
Mary Z. Anderson
What is/are your research interest(s)?
Workshops and programs for healing racism, exploring personal growth with counselors in training in a group context and attitudes towards and issues related to LGB people.
Tell us about some of your professional experiences in the program:
I’ve most appreciated the opportunity to serve as a student rep for our training committee where I could interact with faculty in another context such as in addressing program matters and in making admissions decisions. I’ve also used “field experience” credits to train in the counseling center at Albion college, perform assessments in our Grand Rapids training clinic, lead groups for our Master’s level students and assist in our counseling techniques courses.
What do you want to do after graduation?
My primary goal is to work in a college or university counseling center although I’m still tempted by the idea of private practice and/or teaching.
