Dawnielle Simmons Licensed Clinical Counselor

Dr. Simmons earned her Doctor of Philosophy in Counseling Psychology from Western Michigan University in 2020. Her professional interests are race-based trauma, QPOC, and LGBTQ+ issues. Dr. Simmons' therapeutic approach is centered in decolonizing the profession by interrogating systems and conventional forms of evidence-based practice when working with individuals that are forced to exist on the margins. As a conscious psychologist, her goal is to create a movement of individuals that have access to culturally-informed mental health services and a safe, therapeutic space where students can develop as fully autonomous and psychologically minded individuals.
