Why Counseling? 
I believe that with knowledge and self-awareness comes empowerment. When students spend time in a safe environment thinking about what is going on in their lives and can focus on the positives and possibilities, change and growth happen. Counseling provides the space to help that happen.

Why Counseling? 
I recognize the importance of helping students reach their goals and acknowledge the opportunity it provides for recurrent learning and growth. In our competitive society, it is important for individuals to not only receive a solid educational framework, but it is equally important to study meaningful reliance to their personal life, interests, and daily needs. When individuals have ownership in their lives, they are motivated to work hard and master the skills necessary to reach their goals.
