Teaching Philosophy

I was inspired early in my career by the existential ideas of Albert Camus and Viktor Frankel and the person-centered work of Carl Rogers.  My teaching approach deepened with the trauma work of Babette Rothschild, Bessel Van der Kolk, Michael White, and Eliana Gil. Counseling is walking the journey with others, listening to their silence and their story. My teaching is collaborative and process oriented, inspiring students to find personal meaning in our class as a group. Learning to be a counselor is all about relationships that develop on the journey not at the destination.
