"Acclimating to grad school is a big theme for the students I work with. Also – our students are really talented and helping them see their strengths is important. I use a strength-based approach, to help them see that their seat at the table is earned … sometimes it takes someone else sitting across the table from you to see it yourself and to believe it."
