My career goals may be classified into three primary interest domains: (1) education; (2) clinical practice; and (3) advancing the counseling profession. Ensuing the completion of my master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision, it is my hope to obtain a tenure track faculty position educating masters-level counselor-in-training students. Throughout my experiences as an educator I plan to serve as a mentor for my students to foster their personal growth and professional development, and promote the enhancement of the counseling program in which I become employed via efforts to meet students' educational and practical needs. Second, I desire to supplement my pedagogical endeavors with clinical practices in which I will be enabled to therapeutically assist children, adolescents, and their families in achieving an optimal degree of wellness in all meaningful ecological domains. In particular, I have specific interests regarding the implementation of community-based mental health provider partnerships with school systems, as I believe such programs can best meet the needs of young persons due to opportunities for comprehensive, preventative, remedial, and interdisciplinary care. Lastly, it is my goal to continuously facilitate the advancement of the counseling profession and the betterment of society as a whole by means of producing empirical literature, engaging in local, state, national, and international-level organizational leadership roles, and operationalizing advocacy initiatives surrounding social justice and respect for human dignity and diversity.
