From 8 to 5, Emily serves students at CFCC in Counseling Services but spends her free time getting judged by her pet hound dog, Ozzy (Mr. Oz). She uses a conversational model (Psychodynamic Interpersonal Therapy) when counseling students. Believing that every student should feel recognized and accepted, Emily fosters student success by creating relationships, maintaining retention, and providing appropriate referrals when needed. She values her students and the vision that CFCC upholds.
