My name is Julia Bower and I’m in Avila’s Graduate Counseling program. I attended the University of Northern Iowa where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I moved to Kansas City in August 2012 when I began Avila’s program. I’ve always had a passion for learning about why people work the way they do. When I became more knowledgeable about human behavior, I found a new compassion for people who are struggling with things in their lives. This is what led me to pursue a degree in counseling.
I was hired as a graduate assistant at the beginning of the 2013 Spring semester and was fortunate enough to be given this blog as my main priority. I’ve created this blog to help graduate students with information regarding an array of topics. I hope that I will not only help you understand information about Avila’s program, but also keep you connected to the world of psychology, both in the Kansas City area and the rest of the country.
