Overview

Overview

Counselling or therapy is a calling. Given this, I believe that students have an inborn wisdom. For me, teaching is helping the student use this wisdom for the purpose of reducing another’s pain. Learning occurs through acquired knowledge and skill, experience, mentoring, and self-trust. Openness, compassion, self-reflection, and critical thought are also doors for the student to enter on a path of transformation. My teaching philosophy is to create environments to facilitate this transformation.

Adler is the perfect teaching environment because of our dedication to faculty development and research, an alignment of professional values, an adaptation to the needs of the community, and a dedication to society as an intrinsic factor for individual health.

Vancouver Campus

Adler University in Vancover has been, like Canada itself, born and built with an open mind. Located in the midst of one of the world’s most exciting and breathtaking cities, Adler University reflects a true Canadian spirit. It’s smart, inclusive and determined to make a world of difference. By design, our Vancover campus echoes the Adler values and intent down every hall and in every room. It is built to live, breathe and inspire those with the passion to pursue a more just society. This is where the work gets done.

At Adler Vancover, you’ll find multiple collaborative areas with the absolute latest technology. Learning areas and windows have literally been situtated to stimulate thought. To some, that may sound odd, but these things do matter. If students are given the space, opportunity and technology to achieve their goals, they are more likely to rock the boat of conventional thought.
