Elizabeth Dimmitt, an instructor in the Department of Behavioral Sciences at Northwest Missouri State University and a licensed professional counselor, has been elected president-elect-elect of the American Counseling Association of Missouri.  

Most recently, she served as secretary of the organization, which consists of counseling professionals who work in settings, including schools, hospitals, residential care facilities, community mental health agencies, the military, government, business and industry, and private practice.

“Her election by peers in the counseling community across the state indicates the level of respect this professional has garnered in her work,” said Dr. Carla Edwards, chair of the Department of Behavioral Sciences at Northwest. “Elizabeth has been a very active member in this state wide organization for many years. She routinely presents faculty and student collaborative research as well as her own work at the yearly state conference.”

At Northwest, Dimmitt teaches courses such as Introduction to Counseling, Child and Adolescent Pathology and Developmental Psychology. She also coordinates dual credit courses, training and supervising regional high school teachers and standardizing the experience to bridge between the high school experience and university life. Additionally, she maintains a private practice, Compass Counseling Center, Inc., specializing in counseling families and children.

Dimmitt joined the Northwest faculty in 2008. She earned her Bachelor of Science in psychology and sociology and her Master of Science in counseling psychology, both from Northwest.
