Terrie Porter, Ph.D, LPC, NCC, ACS
Dr. Porter has been a counselor educator and supervisor since 2003. She brings board experience in higher education in respect to teaching, supervising, and administration. Dr. Porter also has experience working in private practice specializing in work with adolescents, and children. Terrie is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), National Certified Counselor (NCC), School Counselor Credentialed K-12 (Oregon), and an Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS).
Terrie’s doctoral dissertation work at Oregon State University reviews how CACREP accredited school counseling programs train school counselors in the area of suicide prevention, intervention and postvention. Terrie has spoke at conferences regionally and nationally in the areas of counselor education, activity based group work, suicide prevention and intervention, adolescent depression, grief and loss, multicultural awareness, empathy training and counselor self-care.
The guiding principle in Terrie’s teaching philosophy encompasses the idea that teachers should seek to empower or capacitate students with the necessary skills to take control of their own learning, and, at the same time, emulate the behaviors they expect their students to acquire. Teaching, like learning is a life-long process.
