Jean is Masters of Social Work student at Loyola University of Chicago. She earned her undergraduate degree in psychology from Northwestern University, and also has a JD from University of Michigan.
Before starting her MSW program, Jean pursued a variety of careers, including practicing law, entrepreneurship, and working in admissions in higher education. However, through all of these pursuits Jean found herself wanting to work alongside people in a deeper way. When Covid struck, the time was right for a big life change and she began pursuing her long-term goal of returning to graduate school in a mental health helping profession.
Prior to joining CFC Therapy, Jean was a clinical intern at a City Colleges of Chicago campus, where she provided long-term individual counseling. Being fully present with clients during a session and witnessing their growth and strength over time is a privilege to Jean. She strives to create a supportive, encouraging and warm relationship and believes in a collaborative approach to counseling, drawing from various schools of thought including psychodynamic and strengths-based philosophies.
