The faculty at George Fox have come alongside me to nurture and grow my skills in therapy and assessment across the lifespan with an emphasis on rural, underserved populations, which I desire to serve throughout my career. During my experience within the PsyD program, faculty have encouraged me to lean into my strength of assessment and have challenged me to expand my skill set within therapy and working with children and adolescents.
