Hello! I am a graduate student working towards licensure and I am being supervised by Breanne Willey at Mindful Resolve Counseling.
Student Therapist in Colorado Springs, CO
Supervised by Breanne Willey
I worked as a Direct Support Professional (also known as a Direct Care Specialist) where I would provide in-home care for individuals with developmental disabilities. I have worked with individuals of all ages and abilities. Some examples include Autism Spectrum Disorder, Intellectual Disability, and Down Syndrome. I also have experience working with non-verbal individuals.
I minored in Criminology at the Ohio State University when I was working towards my BS. During my undergraduate career I enrolled in a course inside a women's prison where I learned about how a prison runs and the experiences of incarcerated individuals. I also worked at a halfway house where I would assist women with transitioning back into the community. Furthermore, I helped individuals prepare for job interviews and learned to conduct educational seminars for those on probation.
I minored in Sexuality Studies at the Ohio State University when I was working towards my BS, and I have taken graduate level courses relating to sexuality and counseling. I am always learning and educating myself on the best ways to be an ally. I believe that familiarity with LGBTQ+ issues is imperative for a counselor to properly serve their clients.
