My Bio

Lily Williams joined STEM in the 2023-2024 school year. She is the Middle School Counselor for students with last names starting with the letters A-L.

Lily graduated with her undergraduate degree in Psychology in 2021 and then went on to get her Masters degree in Counseling in 2023, both from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Along with studying counseling, she has a certificate in Grief, Trauma, and Loss, with a minor in Studio Art.

Concurrently with her job as a Middle School Counselor, Lily is working towards licensure as a Professional Counselor in the state of Colorado, where she plans to focus on adolescent anxiety, mood disorders, and depression. She also is currently a Crisis Specialist for the National Suicide and Crisis Lifeline (988). Lily finds interest in learning about trauma-informed care and creating healthy, trusting relationships with her students and co-workers. She believes that middle school students are at the prime age of discovering who they are, and creating an identity for themselves. Being able to support her students alongside their journey towards themselves is something she has a passion for.

Outside of work, Lily enjoys traveling, watching scary movies, and finding new art projects to work on.
