    “I teach because I love seeing how my experience translates to student growth. I love being able to share the stories that God’s gifted me with, not only my education and my academic knowledge but my clinical work, and watching my students really wrestle through what it looks like to take these experiences I’ve shared with them and make it their own.”
    –Dr. Deborah Gorton, Program Director for Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program
