About Mary

From studying academics to helping them

Prior to becoming a therapist I was an academic who studied academia!​ As a socio-cultural anthropologist, I studied scientific communities and the structure of higher education institutions in the US and in Latin America. 


I got my PhD in Anthropology from the University of Chicago and then worked as an adjunct, a post-doc, in university administration, and as a lecturer at various midwestern colleges and universities. 

In 2019 I decided to change career and retrain as a therapist. I now have an MEd in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from DePaul University, and am licensed (LPC) in the State of Illinois.
