Meet the Counselors of Spring Term: HanaLi Gilbert

HanaLi Gilbert, MA, DTLLP (she/her)

Professional/Educational Background: I am working as an intern at the Counseling Center for the 2023-24 academic year while I work towards my Ph.D. in counseling psychology at Western Michigan University. I really enjoy working with college-aged students, which makes K-College an exciting internship site! My clinical experience has included conducting individual and group counseling at an elementary school, university training clinic, and private practice setting.  

Hometown: Grand Rapids, MI – If you visit, I highly recommend checking out the Mitten Brewing Company for great pizza!  

Pets: I am a huge dog lover and have two family pets – a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Penelope and a Yorkie Coton mix named Lily!  

Psychology Book Recommendation: Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb – the book is a memoir that combines humor, humility, and honesty to talk about the author’s personal and professional journey as both a client and a therapist. I highly recommend this read for anyone wanting to learn more about one person’s journey through therapy!  

Hobby: I really enjoy checking out local thrift stores and second-hand markets for cool and funky clothing and home goods!
