Meet the Counseling Center staff

Our counseling staff have diverse experiences and backgrounds to meet our diverse student body. From doctoral and master's level trained staff to our interns, we all believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship with you and the value of each "animal in the forest."

You can find a counselor with specific styles of counseling to match your needs, like EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy.

Clinical Counseling Graduate Internship

We have a 2-year counseling internship program to prepare new counselors to work in outpatient counseling centers that require the mature, experienced, and self-aware application of various skills.
