Hayden Painter

Graduate Intern

No matter a person’s situation, everyone faces challenges and struggles along with opportunities for striving or happiness. Though this struggle is universal to life, these experiences are unique for each person. While providing counseling services, I am here to listen to every aspect of your situation and understand who you are, no matter the reason you come in, and often to help you understand more about yourself. Through this understanding, I aim to help you examine your opportunities and struggles from a lens constructed by your own beliefs and values about the world. I am here to support you in finding your own answers for life and planning to live the way you wish to. I look forward to meeting anyone who feels they could benefit from exploring this.


I have a somewhat varied background in psychology that I build on. I currently work as a registered behavior technician and provide behavioral therapy to adults with autism and developmental disabilities. This experience has emphasized in my view that every person has strengths they can work with in their life, and it is part of my work to help find these. I have mostly worked with young adults and find it easy to connect with this age group so far, but am looking forward to getting to know anyone, and am comfortable meeting people from any age group.


As an undergraduate, I received a Bachelor of Science double major in Psychology and Philosophy. I am continuing my education at Webster University, working to get my Master’s Degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. During my continuing education, I am providing counseling services with the exceptionally supportive staff and counselors at Diversified Health and Wellness Center. With this opportunity, I am excited to support and learn from all those I meet.
