Welcome to East Woods School Counseling Page!
My name is Amy Dorsey and I am the school counselor here at East Woods. As the school counselor it is my duty to help promote the academic, personal, social, and emotional development of students. The primary focus of the school counselor is prevention. I work with ALL students to help them develop life skills and help them have a successful school year.

A little about me: I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree from Kent State University where I studied psychology, conflict management, and justice studies. Shortly after graduating I moved to Columbus where I worked with youth in a residential treatment facility focusing on coping skills and behavior management.
I returned to the Cleveland area in 2009 and was employed with a non-profit agency. I worked with students in a middle school to help those with emotional difficulties be successful in a traditional classroom setting. That is when I found my passion for working in the school setting and helping children be successful, lifelong learners.
I continued my education at Kent State where I earned my Master’s Degree in School Counseling in December of 2012. I have been working as a school counselor ever since and have loved every moment of it!
