Nebraska Educational Psychology: Meet Krista


We’ll start by maybe just checking in about field placement. I teach beginning practicum students. It’s been a really great opportunity for me to teach because my long-term goals are to be a faculty member at a research university, so having the ability to learn how to teach and facilitate learning to students has been a really important skill for me to develop. I’m also clinic director. This clinic on campus is unique because we not only see UNL students, faculty, and staff here, but we also see community clients, so we get people of all ages, of all backgrounds, which is a really wonderful opportunity. The very last part of my PhD program in counseling psychology is an internship program. What we go through is a national match process, and so I ended up matching with the University of Utah in Salt Lake City in their college counseling center to really better hone my counseling and clinical skills as well as help me become a more independent clinician. On campus, I don’t know. The counseling psychology program here at UNL was a wonderful fit for me. Our program here is known for being a really team-oriented program, which has helped me grow as both a clinician and a researcher.
