It is my pleasure to be part of Adler University’s community. With the support of the mission of the University, I am deeply pleased that I can further exercise my lifetime dedication in advocating for underrepresented groups and actualizing my vision in the training of socially responsible counselors. Given years of involvement in multicultural affairs, teaching, training, and research in cross-cultural relationships, I am a strong advocate in cultivating cultural competence in the counseling profession, both for mainstream and minority practitioners. Through both classroom and field experience, it is my goal to assist counselor trainees to examine their worldviews and possible biases against different client groups. Moreover, I believe in collaborative learning. Through practicing education collaboratively, our students will be empowered to bring positive changes both within themselves and outside the classroom to the broader community.
In my academic career, I have taught and trained students in multicultural counseling, clinical supervision, supervision of group leaders, career counseling, research and program evaluation, and teaching in higher education. My current research interests include cross-cultural conflict resolution, cross-cultural supervision, group counseling, and interracial couple and family counseling.
