Need an Appointment?

Please e-mail Counseling Assistant Karimah Clark to set up a meeting with me.  We might also be able to address your concern or inquiry via e-mail.  

I'm sorry that I am usually unavailable to answer phone calls but I make every effort to return phone messages within 48 hours as long as I am not off campus.  Most often I return e-mails faster than phone messages.

Thank you for your patience as I look forward to assisting you with your goals and concerns!

Need a Letter of Recommendation?

Please see me in person at least 3 weeks in advance with all the details.  I may ask you to complete a Senior Profile for Letters of Rec so that you can provide me with more information about yourself.  Remember that CSUs and UCs do not require letters of rec (nor do they accept them).
