Dr. Abby Bjornsen-Ramig
- Counseling, Associate Professor
I am a Counseling Psychologist by trade, and I am licensed to practice in the state of Nebraska. I teach exclusively graduate-level coursework in the UNO Department of Counseling, and advise students in both Clinical Mental Health and Student Affairs in Higher Education. I also serve as Program Coordinator for the Student Affairs in Higher Education concentration. I supervise student thesis projects, and enjoy research collaboration with faculty and staff across the UNO campus and at other institutions of higher education.
I have a variety of teaching interests including both Assessment and Career Counseling. I also teach/supervise clinical courses such as clinical practicum and both beginning and advanced clinical internship.
My research primarily focuses on career development in college students and student-athletes. I also engage in collaborative research across disciplines (e.g., Special Education, Criminal Justice, Health and Kinesiology.). I enjoy both qualitative and mixed-methods research designs.
I serve on multiple committees within the Department of Counseling (e.g., Honors and Awards Committee) the College of Education (e.g., Reappointment, Promotion, and Tenure Committee), the university (e.g., the Wellness Coalition), and the profession (I chair the career counseling sub-committee of the Nebraska Counseling Association)
