Mr. DiPalma has been with Penn College Counseling Services since 2001. He is a Licensed Professional Counselor who received his Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling and Marriage & Family Therapy from Bowling Green State University, where he also earned dual undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Interpersonal Communication. In addition to working as a counselor, Mr. DiPalma is an adjunct instructor teaching various psychology courses.
After 25 years of college counseling experience, Mr. DiPalma's approach to helping students has evolved into a blend of cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, and client centered therapies. These approaches help challenge and guide students in discovering more about the maladaptive patterns that influence the way students think, feel and behave, and helps students confront unresolved issues influencing their ability to form and maintain healthy relationships with others. This approach may help students experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, social awkwardness, family dysfunction, interpersonal concerns, and intimate/dating relationship difficulties, as well as college adjustment issues.
