Internship Outreach

CCM Counseling & Wellness has been serving the mental health and wellness needs of the people of this area for more than three and a half decades.  CCM has had a tradition of building a stronger community by empowering people through counseling, education and creating opportunities where people can embrace a life of wholeness. It has been a part of our mission to reach out to people who might not otherwise have access to the support and healing that counseling can provide. Our Intern and Free Counseling Outreach Program was established years ago to connect “no and low income” individuals with quality mental health care. Several years ago we were providing over 1000 hours of free counseling a year, but recently that number dropped due to not having the funding to get the word out and let people know about this amazing community outreach. Thanks to the Green Bay Packers Foundation and the grant money awarded, we can now continue our tradition of support and service to the community.

Deanna Robbins

Hello! My name is Deanna Robbins and I am a graduate student at Lakeland University. I received my undergraduate degree in psychology from Wisconsin Lutheran College in Milwaukee. I interned for the past two semesters at Family Services Day Treatment in Green Bay, where I worked with children and adolescents who were experiencing a wide range of mental-health-related concerns, including mood disorders, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, and effects of traumatic experiences. I have had the opportunity to learn ways to foster socioemotional development through my position at the YMCA. I have also taken Phase 1 and Phase 3 of Brainspotting, which helps people to process through trauma stored deep in the brain.

I understand from personal experience the impact that mental health issues can have on one’s life. I am interested in helping people to work through past traumatic events and to grow in new directions. My goal is to help you to foster your strengths and take active steps toward your best self.

I look forward to working with you!
