            1996-2002, M.A, Psychological Counseling

            he Adlerian concept of Social Interest is what drew me to Adler because it was so consistent with my own observations of healthy psychological functioning in the Addictions work and ministry I had been doing. I was pleased to have recieved a well rounded education that still serves me today in my work as a counselor. It also gave me the tools I needed to take and pass the state exams for LPC and LCPC. I have found recollections of almost all of my classes, professors, and students. I highly recommend Adler School!

            As an alum and Trustee of Adler, I'm especially proud of the School's growth, which is rooted in Alfred Adler's pioneering concept of social interest and continues to be trailblazing today in the development of socially responsible leadership.

            An outstanding preparation for multiple walks of life is gaining awareness of the Adlerian perspective on the human psyche and interpersonal relationships. A wonderful foundation for employment in the mental health field.
