In this episode, I interview Dr. Patricia Robey about her role as an educational leader and supervisor of counselors in the field. Dr. Robey has been working in various capacities at Governors State University and a role she loves is supervising counselors.

Dr. Robey will help you understand the determinants. For more on Choice Theory and Reality Therapy in the US, go to If you live in another country, go to to find a member organization near you.
