Chelsee Haber

Counseling Intern

Hi! My name is Chelsee Haber and I am currently a student at Western Kentucky University in the Clinical Mental Health Master's program. I was born and raised in Massachusetts and moved to Bowling Green in 2010 for my undergraduate program. I graduated in December 2013 with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from WKU and I began my graduate career in the fall of 2014. I enjoy spending time with loved ones, horseback riding, taking my two dogs, Louie and Migo, to the dog park, and eating out at local restaurants. I greatly enjoy working with children, but also have a passion for working with adolescents and adults as well. I one day hope to specialize in working with children with ADHD and potentially counseling children and adolescents of military families. I am currently accepting clients for individual and couples counseling, in addition to play therapy and sandtray therapy.

Dr. Imelda Bratton

Co-Director / Supervisor

¡Hola! My name is Imelda N. Bratton. I am a Co-Director for Talley Family Counseling Center. I am also the School Counseling Program and Clinical Coordinator in the Counseling and Student Affairs Department. This is my second year as Co-Director and supervising interns at TFCC. This is my 23rd year as an educator and counselor. I began my career as a bilingual Pre-K teacher in Texas. I later became a school counselor working with English and Spanish speaking populations in Texas. I have been a play therapist since the early 90's where I used it in inner city and rural public schools. Eventually I earned my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision at Idaho State University in 2008. Over the past 10 years I have enjoyed teaching and supervising counseling students in play therapy, individual, group, family and couple counseling. I have received specialized training in Play Therapy, Supervision, and the Gottman Couples approach. I directly supervise students working with play therapy clients and parent consultations. My interests are in: Play Therapy, Sandtray, Expressive Arts, Parent Consultation, School Counseling, Clinical Supervision and Multicultural Issues. I am originally from Texas, but have become a Kentuckian as I fell in love with the area. I have a wonderful husband, three delightfully active kids (age range from 3 – 20) and two hilarious cats. In my free time I enjoy playing with toys, cooking, antiquing, remodeling, riding the tractor, driving my 65 Ford truck, and shopping. - Imelda N.
