Q: Please describe your teaching philosophy.
A: I believe that teaching is an interactive process between professor and students. I feel that real world experiences are an important part of the learning experience, which I attempt to bring into the classroom.
Q: Please provide a statement or philosophy regarding the practice of psychology.
A: The practice of psychology is an interactive process between professional and client. Working together from intake assessment to completion of treatment is necessary to engage the client in a way that is beneficial to them.
Q: Why did you choose to enter the field of psychology?
A: I was inspired in high school when a guest speaker who is a clinician came to discuss his practice and I was fascinated by his stories. Again, in undergrad my Abnormal Psychology professor would discuss his practice with clients and I found myself listening in fascination more often than taking notes. My interest in psychology continues to grow and develop to this day.
Q: What advice would you give to a student entering The Chicago School?
A: Be grateful for your life experiences, understand how those experiences guide your life and what you can learn from them. Do not be afraid to try something different or feel that a job is beneath you because your clients will admire you more for your hard work and dedication.
