Counseling Faculty

The counseling programs have seven full-time faculty (pictured above). These faculty members comprise a diverse group whose expertise reflects professional experience in a variety of clinical settings, including public schools, university-clinics, mental health settings, and private practice. All full-time faculty engage in teaching, research, service, and professional involvements and are committed to providing a challenging and supportive learning environment.
