Hi, my name is Melissa Martin and I have been here at SUNY Broome since Fall of 2012. I have focused a lot of my career working with individuals to help them make healthier, more positive decisions that will support their success in life. I work closely with students who are struggling to balance school, life, work and home, etc. I help folks sort out mental health related matters and find ways to cope with their complexities in life. I am eager to help you as well. I love what I do here at SUNY Broome… you may see me around campus offering common hour discussions and presentations, tabling for Green Dot (our campus bystander intervention program) as well as other notable causes and programs. I present in classrooms to talk on a variety of topics, as well as, am involved in several committees and groups throughout campus and the community. I offer both individual and group counseling, as well as crisis counseling as needed. I also have my hand in teaching in the Chemical Dependency Program, Criminal Justice Program, as well as, the Psychology Department. I love to stay busy and active on campus and in the community. I look forward to meeting you. Stop on in!
Hello, my name is Ann Marie Zumawtzak and I am a personal counselor at SUNY Broome. I started working with students here at the Counseling Center in February 2018. I am excited for this new chapter and to be part of the SUNY Broome community. I have practiced in mental health/human services field for over 20 years and have experience working with adolescents and adults with diverse backgrounds and ranges of concerns. My counseling approach is based on the unique needs of the individual and I strive to work with clients to determine how counseling can be most useful based on their personal experiences, background, culture, and worldview. I believe counseling is a collaborative process and I seek to provide a supportive and safe environment that empowers individuals to reach their goals.
Hi, my name is Jessica Wicks, new to the SUNY Broome Counseling Department. I have been working in human services and mental health for 12 years. I have a background working with individuals of all ages, families, groups and couples. I have experience with counseling, case management, crisis intervention, and psycho-education. I strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment to allow individuals to express their feelings and process life events. I work with individuals to overcome depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationship issues, life transitions, and any other self-identified struggles being faced. I assist with gaining insight and awareness of our emotional reactions to current and past situations allowing us to make conscious decisions about how we handle things going forward. I am certified in Problem Solving Therapy (PST), a short-term evidence based therapy used to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety. I am also certified in Screening and Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) to assist those who may be struggling with substance use concerns. Counseling is a very personal journey. Sessions are tailored to your personal needs and goals. I would be honored to work with you and share in your journey.
