There she was part of a trauma research lab that studied PTSD and minority populations on college campuses. Since moving to Appleton 5 years ago, she has worked with survivors of sexual violence at Reach Counseling in Neenah as a case manager, and ran support groups for women, and LGBTQ+ survivors of violence.

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.

Working from home during the pandemic, Corynn has been especially grateful for her love of getting outside, her willful cat, and her collection of 50+ houseplants.
