Meet The CIs

Tunisha Potter, Student Counselor Intern

Hello, I am Tunisha. I recently graduated from Texas A&M with a master’s in Counseling and Guidance.

I am an advisor at the Alamo Colleges where I provide academic and career counseling to students. I am experienced in helping students overcome several issues that might serve as barriers to their educational goals. I maintain an integrative theoretical orientation but enjoy utilizing solution-focused and reality therapies.

I am currently engaged in independent research on topics involving nontraditional students & counseling services. I am also, studying for the National Counselor Exam (NCE). Far in the future, I hope to open a nonprofit where I can provide career counseling and life coaching to under-served populations. When I have spare time, I enjoy volunteering, spending time with my family, and attending professional workshops and conferences.

It is my hope that this site provides some enlightenment for you on your journey to becoming a counselor. Welcome & Good Luck!!

Brittany Duncan, Student Counselor Intern

Hi, my name is Brittany Duncan and I am from San Antonio, Texas. I graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Psychology. I am currently working on my master’s degree in Community Counseling at the University of Texas at San Antonio and I will be graduating in August 2013.

I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families with a variety of issues such as depression, adjustment issues, grief/loss, self-harm, anxiety, self-esteem, social skills, behavioral issues, and anger management. I like to build a solid therapeutic relationship with my clients. The theories of counseling I like the most are solution-focused, person-centered, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

Currently I am working as an Academic Advisor at San Antonio College and I hope to work as a college counselor in the future. When I am not working I love to read, run, and  network with people. I believe that building relationships and rapport with other people in the counseling profession is important.

I hope that you gain knowledge while visiting this site as well as feel encouraged and supported as you are on this journey.

Samantha, bilingual LCDC IIIHi! My name is Samantha and I am a graduate of The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) with a BA in Psychology. Most of my education took place at Austin Community College (ACC), where I received an AS in Math, an AA in Psychology, and a certificate in Human Services – Addictions Counseling.

In regards to my career, I have a longstanding interest in the psychology of abnormal behavior and a true passion for the practice and study of substance abuse counseling. In 2012, I created two blogs LCDC Exam Review and lcdcecstudyguide.blogspot.com where I publish information related to the addictions counseling profession and the Alcohol and Drug Counselor (ADC) certification exam by the IC&RC.

My favorite quote is:  “Peace is not only the absence of noise, conflicts, or personal challenges; it is also the sense of calm that we feel in our hearts and our minds even when we are surrounded by all those things.” – Anonymous
