From the Interim Director of Counseling This has been a year of changes for the Counseling Clinic. A time of saying many good-byes: Our former Executive Director, Former Dean, Drs. Cleveland, Mull, and Dixon—valued members of our clinical and training staff—and be- loved friend and colleague Dr. Owen Dugmore, who died in January of this year. A time of new beginnings and new relationships: Welcoming Rhonda McKinney as she transitioned into our Executive Director for a year, Associate Dean Hyatt began her new position, Interim Dean Schafer joined in January, and the Counseling Clinic welcomed new permanent staff members Gwendolyn (Gwen) Koenig, MA, LMHC and Nathaniel (Nate) O’Connor, PsyD. And, in the circle of life that is training, we said good-bye to 3 doctoral interns and 1 mas- ter’s intern and then, days later, welcomed 3 new doctoral interns and 2 mas- ter’s interns. It has been a year of deluge, with the clinic experiencing more demand for services and crises this past fall than at any time in its history; and a time of drought, with frequently operating below a fully-staffed FTE level. It has been a time of support, with unprecedented support from the wider cam- pus community for the work we do, lived out through an additional counselor position and the beginnings of telepsychiatry (with additional funding se- cured). There have been times of mourning and times of celebrating. It has been a year of collaborating and developing new relationships. It has been a time of self-reflection and visioning, as the staff have come together to recon- nect and redefine our values, our mission and vision. It has been a time of in- novation, as we have done things new ways to meet the needs of our campus this past year and in the year to come. Throughout, I have been so proud to work with an amazing group of talented, committed professionals, both on my staff and across campus, and honored to lead such an excellent team.
