Chelsey Jenkins


Counseling Intern

Hello everyone! My name is Chelsey and I am excited to be interning at the Talley Family Counseling Center! I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology. Currently, I am in the Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling program here at WKU. I have a particular interest in counseling couples and families. However, I also enjoy working with individuals. My hobbies include reading, exercising, reflecting, playing with my dogs, and spending time with friends and family. I look forward to learning more about counseling and growing both personally and professionally. I am accepting clients for individual, couple, marriage, family, and play therapy.

Spenser Sawyers


Counseling Intern

Hi, my name is Spenser Sawyers and I'm a student in the clinical mental health counseling program. I was born and raised in Bowling Green, and I have a city and country side to me (I love exploring woods and urban jungles). I love spicy food, tattoos, kayaking, loud music, nature, foreign films, belly laughing, and having a good time. I have an advocacy passion in the LGBT community, and have a research background on suicide prevention within the ethnic minority LGB population. I have a lifelong passion and commitment towards counseling, and I am proud to say that I have found myself within this program! I am accepting clients for individual, couples, families, and play therapy.

Holly Bean


Counseling Intern

Hi! My name is Holly Bean. I am a graduate student in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program working on my internship here at Talley Family Counseling Center. Although I have been in Bowling Green for five years now, I grew up in a small town. I respect the value of family and believe in continual personal growth. I enjoy family game nights with friends and family and spend my free time working on my American Sign Language skills within the Deaf community. I am a huge sports fan and although I root for my alma mater (WKU), I tend to bleed blue. During my time at Talley, I hope to help anyone who walks through our doors. I have a high interest in working with children and adolescents, but would enjoy working with the family unit and adult individuals all the same. I am accepting clients for individual, couples, families, and play therapy.

Susan Harper


Graduate Assistant

I am a Bowling Green native, I graduated from WKU in 2011 with my BS in Child and Family Studies. This is my first year in the Marriage, Couple and Family Counseling program at WKU. I have worked with families and children in many different aspects, and look forward to gaining more experience in these fields. I have many other interests in the counseling field and am looking forward to gaining many more experiences in the near future.
