Assistant Director, Clinical and Crisis Services
Hi, my name is Amber Bach-Gorman and I am an Assistant Director and the coordinator of clinical services here at NDSU. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of North Dakota in Psychology, my Master’s Degree in College/Agency Counseling from the State University of New York - Plattsburgh, and my Doctorate in Counselor Education at NDSU. In addition to being a nationally certified counselor I am also an Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Mental Health (EAGALA) specialist, in addition to a Pet Partner Therapy team. Prior to working for NDSU, I worked as a Mental Health Counselor for a university in upstate New York.
My professional interests: include working with individuals struggling with eating disorders, grief and bereavement, developmental trauma, anxiety, depression, and animal assisted interventions. Personally, I enjoy spending time with my husband, family and animal companions. My hobbies include competing with my dogs in agility, obedience and conformation. Volunteering as a therapy animal team, and spending as much time outdoors as possible!
