Corryn graduated summa cum laude from Messiah College with a B.S. in Biopsychology with a minor in Counseling. She subsequently obtained a M.A. degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Messiah College’s esteemed graduate program. During both of these educational experiences, Corryn was able to incorporate her faith and grow as a Christian while pursuing these degrees. She is currently seeking licensure as a professional counselor, and is receiving professional supervision accordingly.
Her work history began with serving nearly 5 years at Paxton Ministries, a non-profit personal care home for adults in need. The residents at Paxton struggle with significant mental health concerns, and it was there that Corryn developed her passion for working in this field. She feels as though she was given the opportunity to integrate her faith in her work while at Paxton, and that she learned how to see beyond an individual’s diagnoses because of this spiritual and uplifting environment. More recently, Corryn worked as a family-based mobile therapist. During this experience, Corryn was utilizing her skills to support high-risk children, parents, and families with the ultimate goals of healing broken relationships and improving familial communication.
Corryn’s counseling style is a blend of person-centered and solutions focused brief therapy. This is a strengths-based approach to counseling, for she believes that her clients are the experts on their own stories. She has also received formal training in eco-systemic structural family therapy during her time as a mobile therapist, so Corryn also relies on a systems approach. This means that she works to understand and explore the other influences on a client’s life that impact his or her relationships. Above all, Corryn views her clients as God’s perfectly designed creations and she cares deeply about the people she encounters each day.
In her free time, Corryn enjoys exercising, reading, spending time outside, playing board games, and taking naps. She is married to a wonderful, Godly man who helps her relax and not take herself so seriously.
