Anne Lally, MSEd., LSW, LPCC-S, Assistant Director
My focus as a licensed professional counselor is to provide counseling for our currently enrolled students. I have been employed at YSU since 1988 and as the Mental Health Counselor since 2001. I am also licensed to provide supervision and training for our Counseling Graduate Students.
To provide the best services for our students I have initiated and facilitated collaborations with University as well as Community resources. My collaborations have created strong partnerships with local and regional facilities.
I am currently serving as Vice Chair on the Mahoning County Mental Health and Recovery Board (2006 - present) and have served on both the Boys & Girls Club (2004 - 06) and the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board (2004 - 08).
I am also adjunct faculty in our Counseling Department. This provides the additional opportunity of contact with our students while they are on their academic path.
