Ph.D.

Bio

Dr. Jamie Ho is an assistant professor in the School of Counseling at Marymount University. She received her Ph.D. in Counselor Education at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. Earning her previous counseling degrees in Taiwan, Dr. Ho has provided bilingual counseling to adolescents and adults in various settings. In addition, she utilizes humanistic and expressive approaches to facilitate clients’ growth and wellness.

Dr. Ho’s research agenda focuses on empathy and social justice in counselor preparation. Overall, she is pursuing two major goals: (a) investigating how individuals’ internal empathy process and external expression impact counseling relationships, and (b) amplifying the voices of historically marginalized populations to thicken narratives of the underrepresented experiences. For her doctoral dissertation, she developed a theoretical framework to study factors contributing to counselors’ empathy in the counseling process. Additionally, her research team was awarded a research grant for racial disparity from Association for Assessment and Research in Counseling.

Dr. Ho is an active member of the counseling profession. She served as a reader consultant for the CACREP and an editorial assistant for the Journal of College Counseling. In recognition of her involvement in the profession, Dr. Ho received the Outstanding Doctoral Student Award from the Texas Association for Counselor Education and Supervision. She is currently an Emerging Leader for the Southern Association for Counselor Education and Supervision.

Dr. Logan has 23 years in the mental health field holding a variety of positions to include therapist (within public and private sectors), clinical director, resource supervisor, rehabilitation specialist, home-based counselor, and social worker. I also own/operate a private mental health practice for the last 14 years. These varied positions have allowed me to treat and encounter an array of mental health disorders and situations. My professional journey over the years has shown me that regardless of the psychological symptoms that a person may present with, everyone wants to be genuinely listened to and acknowledged, helping them become more comfortable embarking on this personal journey.
