New Director of Counseling Services
I am so thrilled to announce that Dr. Johanna Workman has accepted the position of director of counseling services. She will join us on Monday, August 3, after moving to Portland from southern Georgia. Her office will be in the Health & Counseling Center.
Dr. Workman comes to us from Southern Georgia University where she was the associate director and clinical services director for its counseling center. She has extensive experience supporting and advocating for the needs of underrepresented students, conducting outreach to students and college departments, managing crisis and emergency scenarios, overseeing trainees, and maintaining accreditation standards. She has delivered workshops and presentations including Racial Battle Fatigue, Intent vs. Impact of Microaggressions, and Workplace Bullying of People of Color, and she has received awards for her social justice work.
In addition to her leadership roles, Dr. Workman is a seasoned clinician with experience in a wide range of issues affecting college students, including alcohol and other drug use, severe mental illness, sexual assault, trauma, and eating disorders. She holds a doctorate of psychology and a master's degree in psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, San Diego. She earned her bachelor's degree in sociology at the University of Virginia.
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Workman to Reed!
