Core Faculty, M.A. in Counseling Psychology

When I teach, I encourage students to be active and engaged in their own learning. I practice critical thinking and demonstrate how it can be used in other areas of life. I assess and monitor progress. I respect the diverse learning styles of various students. And I learn and incorporate new teaching methods as often as possible. To achieve these goals, I rely on my personal and professional strengths to take an active role in my students’ learning.

I’m at Adler because I support the School’s mission of social justice, just as the School supports my values.
