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.
