Andy has been with Lawrence University Counseling Services since January 2015.
In her work with students, Andy approaches mental health from a humanistic, person-centered lens with a focus on recognizing an individual’s unique strengths as a whole person. Her approach is relational, multi-theoretical, and integrative. She enjoys helping students to gain insight into themselves and their motivations, to create effective responses to their challenges, and to feel empowered to accomplish their goals. Andy especially enjoys working with students struggling with depression, anxiety, identity, low self-esteem, trauma, and relationships, as well as members of the LGBTQIA+ community, introverted, and highly sensitive individuals. In all of her work, Andy endeavors to build a trusting and caring relationship with students as they seek to improve their overall well-being, strengthen resilience, and find meaning in their lives.
In her spare time, Andy enjoys reading, writing, gardening, road trips, and spending time at home with her partner and their canine family.
I officially joined the Lawrence Community in 2015. I have been practicing as a Licensed Practical Nurse since 2001 in a variety of different settings. I thrive on high energy and fast paced environments. Most of my career, I have worked in larger population settings with a diverse group of patients. I love getting to know and connecting with our students. My primary goals are to teach self-care and educate students how to understand and manage their health care. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, music, and traveling.

Kerrin joined Lawrence University in the winter of 2020 as a Psychologist at Wellness Services. Prior to joining the team at Wellness Services, she worked for 8 years at Union College as the Associate Director and Training Director of the Counseling Center. Kerrin has also been supervising future mental health practitioners and teaching graduate classes in mental health fields for over 10 years. Her most recent supervision and teaching experiences have been at University at Albany and New York University. Over the past year, Kerrin has also started a small private practice using telehealth services to provide psychological treatment to recent college graduates in New York State. The overall focus of her work has always been on both providing training and education to future mental health professionals as well as providing direct mental health services to college student populations.
Kerrin earned a doctorate in counseling psychology from the University at Albany and completed her pre-doctoral internship at the University of Delaware. She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in criminal justice from the Marist College. She also earned her master’s degree in counseling and community psychology from Marist College.
When working with students, Kerrin uses an integrative approach with emphasis on feminist and interpersonal theories. She also uses cognitive behavioral and mindfulness-based approaches. Although she is a generalist, she finds great meaning in working with students who struggle with anxiety, depression, interpersonal issues, identity exploration and multicultural concerns, sleep difficulties, grief and loss, and trauma.
She enjoys spending time with her family, taking adventures with her dogs, being outdoors, and getting creative about living and loving life despite the current restrictions due to COVID-19. She wants you all to be safe, to know we are here for you, and she wants to see your masks!

Corynn is thrilled to be making the transition from the LU 2019-2020 Counseling Intern, to a Counselor – In residence. She will graduate (virtually, of course) from the UW-Madison Graduate School of Social Work this May (of 2020). After returning to school in her 30’s, she received her undergraduate degree 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 that studied PTSD and minority populations on college campuses. Since moving to Appleton four years ago, she has worked with survivors of sexual violence at Reach Counseling in Neenah, and ran support groups for women, and LGBTQ+ survivors of violence. She also completed a year-long internship with Outagamie County’s outpatient mental health services, 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 and dance.
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. Her approach is holistic, integrative, strengths-based, relational, destigmatizing, and trauma-informed. She works with her 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.
