Julie M. Corkery, Ph.D.
Assistant Director for Training-UCS
Adjunct Faculty, Counseling Psychology Program
Clinical/ Counseling Interests: I consider myself to be an integrationist, with a strong belief in the counseling relationship as central in the healing process. I strive to bring acceptance and flexibility to the counseling relationship, and I invite clients to bring acceptance and flexibility to their own internal experiences. I like to help clients manage mood disorders and anxiety disorders. I try to provide a safe environment in which clients can explore and process trauma as well.
Multicultural Interests: I am interested in intersections of gender and social class. I co-wrote a the following chapter with Will Liu from our Counseling Psychology program here on campus:
I have a general interest in how experiences of privilege and oppression shape our experiences and our lives. I have completed National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) Training. I am interested in how diverse trainees in psychology utilize their own life experiences to enhance their development and their multicultural competence.
Outreach Interests: I love to represent our internship program on campus and in the State of Iowa. I also present about UCS Services and general mental health concerns.
Professional Affiliations: Secretary of Association of Counseling Center Training Agencies (ACCTA), Two Terms, September, 2009 -2013. Three-term board member, October 2003 – 2009.
