Corynn Stoltenberg (she/they)
Guided by social work and social justice values, Corynn honors the inherent dignity and worth of every person and the intersectional nature of one’s experience. Their approach is holistic, integrative, strengths-based, relational, destigmatizing, and trauma-informed. Corynn works with their clients to earn and grow a trusting therapeutic relationship, and provide a nonjudgmental, supportive, brave space for students to come into their own and thrive.
After returning to school in her mid-30’s, Corynn received a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in the Study of Women and Gender from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. There, she was part of a trauma research lab, and contributed to a study on rates of PTSD in sexuality minority college students. Corynn received her Master’s in Social Work from UW-Madison in 2020 (during UW's first virtual pandemic graduation). She did her practicum internship at Lawrence during the 2019-2020 school year, and was pleased that they wanted her to stay. Since moving to Appleton 7 years ago, Corynn has worked with survivors of sexual violence at Reach Counseling in Neenah, where she facilitated support groups for women and LGBTQ+ survivors of violence, and co-facilitated sex offender treatment programming. She also completed a year-long practicum internship with Outagamie County’s outpatient mental health clinic, and co-facilitated mindfulness groups at local correctional facilities as a volunteer with the Wisconsin Prison Mindfulness Initiative. Corynn spent her earlier years studying and performing in the creative arts of theater, music, dance, and b&w photography. At Lawrence, she facilitates a support group for LGBTQ+ students on campus.
When Corynn is not at work, they are likely admiring or tending to something green outdoors or indoors; loving on their person or their feline companions; or trying something new (currently aerial arts!)
