Michael Bruner

  1. Where did you work before Lab?
    1. Before Lab, Mr. Bruner worked at the Chicago High School for the Arts for five years as a clinical counselor.
  2. Would be able to give me a sense of your style of counseling, like how you interact with your students?
    1. “My style is generally very warm, nonjudgmental and empathetic. I aim to listen deeply to students in order to gain a full understanding of how they feel and how they arrived at feeling that way.”
  3. What do you hope the students who you counsel will say about you at the end of the year?
    1. “They don’t have to say anything — it’s counseling, and counseling is confidential unless someone is in danger. That said, my goal is always to make sure people feel heard when talking with me.”
  4. What was one of your favorite pandemic activities?
    1. “The greatest joy I’ve had this summer has been bike riding with my daughter.”
