Throughout my career in counseling and as a professor of counseling, I have been actively involved in research and sharing what I find with others through training other therapists, making professional presentations at conferences or in publishing my work. I value the opportunities that I have had to teach colleagues in in my field to enable them to be more informed and ultimately become better practitioners. I have authored or co-authored 12 articles in peer reviewed journals and publications, presented research at over 50 international, national and state professional organization conferences and conducted numerous workshops for counselors and therapists over the years.
You may ask why I would be interested in leave a career in academia to run a solo counseling practice in Hermitage of all places. What would motivate you to take such a risk and wouldn’t that be boring? The answer is that while I loved my work in higher education as a leader or teaching or doing research, my first and ongoing passion is in the practice of counseling and therapy.
