She has a passion for working with individuals who have experienced trauma and abuse in childhood and is a certified trauma and abuse counselor.
Following the class, students will be led through the details of the admission process.
“This event is the perfect opportunity for students to experience first-hand what it’s like to be a counseling student at Milligan,” said Courtney Kieslich, director of graduate and professional studies. “The experience of sitting through an actual class and interacting with Milligan’s expert faculty is invaluable for a student considering the program.”
The Master of Science in Counseling (M.S.C) program offers concentrations in school counseling and clinical mental health counseling.
