Carly Rosenberg, MA, LPC--Advanced Therapy Extern  

Carly is a fourth-year doctoral student of clinical psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Carly has previous clinical experience working with anxiety, depression, life transitions, identity development, and autism spectrum disorder. She understands that therapy may be outside of your comfort zone. Carly strives to create a judgment free environment for clients to grow in ways that feel meaningful to them. Carly’s version of self-care is taking a morning yoga class. She feels focused and relaxed when she says “namaste.” But some days, she says “namaste in bed,” and that is self-care too.     

Diana Cazares--Therapy Intern   

Diana is a DePaul University graduate with a Bachelor in Education. Little did she know she couldn’t get enough of late nights studying and intake of coffee that she decided to go back a second time. Diana is currently in her last year of her Master’s in Social Work at DePaul and is excited to start her career as a social worker! Other than learning Diana also enjoys spending time with her family and friends, watching films and trying out new restaurants. She has two pet fish and two kittens. Diana is hoping to use both her educational knowledge and life experience to offer assistance to those who find themselves in need of support.

Dylan Amlin--Therapy Intern    

Dylan is obtaining his Master’s at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. He comes to therapy after 5 years as a mentor and coach for college students working in political organizations, working on issues like confidence, self-esteem, and different life challenges. His areas of interest include sexuality and identity concerns, immigration and cultural differences, and men's issues. Dylan’s quarantine hobbies include hosting (very small) dinner parties, sneaking onto the beach in the morning, and trying (and failing) to get his cats to walk on a leash.   

Julia Doh--Therapy Extern    

Julia is a Cameroonian American second-year doctoral student of Clinical Psychology at Roosevelt University. She aims to be a culturally competent and inclusive psychologist who utilizes different therapy styles to fit each student’s individual needs. She encourages trust and collaboration in counseling. She enjoys working with people dealing with anxiety, depression, and has history working with individuals dealing with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Julia wants to focus her work on diverse and underserved communities, and specifically wants to help de-stigmatize mental health care across the African diaspora. Julia grew up in Kumba, Cameroon, and later Silver Spring, Maryland. This is her second year in Chicago, and she is excited to learn more about the city. In her spare time, she loves makeup artistry, dancing to Afrobeats, cooking, trying different foods at new restaurants, trying new physical activities, and exploring different spots around the city.         

Robert Gutierrez--Therapy Intern     

Rob is a master’s level counseling student at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. He finished his Bachelors of Arts in psychology at DePaul in 2017. A Chicagoan at heart, graduating from Westinghouse College Prep, Rob is influenced heavily in his clinical work by learning and growing in this city. When decompressing from all of the very serious psychology stuff he likes to read (mostly terrible young adult fiction), cultivate a poorly planned Animal Crossing village, and have his heart broken by the Bears year in and year out. I would like to personally congratulate you for going on this journey of education and invite you to share any trouble you may be having big or small with anyone here at the Wellness Center.   

Satinder Brar, MA--Advanced Therapy Extern

Satinder is a fourth-year doctoral student of Clinical Psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. As someone who did not find happiness in the straight and forward path, she understands that life can present unexpected challenges. Satinder aims to provide a space using compassion and acceptance where she can hear your unique story and accompany you on your journey towards wellbeing. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, trying different types of food, and being outdoors. She also loves literally laughing out loud while watching shows like The Office. She believes that humor can provide a sense of comfort and genuineness…as Michael would say “I knew exactly what to do. But in a much more real sense, I had no idea what to do.” 

Shannon Jeter--Therapy Intern    


Shannon is in her second year at Adler University pursuing her Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Shannon understands college can be a transitional period in any person’s life, and often includes a transition of identity. Her aim is to provide a safe, comfortable, judgement-free environment to navigate through the ups and downs we all experience in life. She believes that focusing on the strengths of each individual is essential to the therapeutic process.   

Taking the first step to reach out is an immense act of courage, and can feel like diving into the unknown. Shannon looks at beginning therapy much like Michael Scott looks at speaking: “Sometimes I’ll start a sentence and I don’t even know where it’s going. I just hope I find it along the way.”     

Shannon is fluent in American Sign Language.  

Becca Goldstein--Diagnostic Extern    

Becca is in the second year of her clinical psychology doctorate at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She graduated from American University in Washington, DC with a degree in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Previously, Becca worked with teens and young adults in a variety of roles including as an education case manager and sexual violence prevention educator. Becca has lived on all 3 coasts (East, West, and Lake Michigan). Her non-professional interests include researching new true crime podcasts, finding exciting ways to cook and eat cauliflower, and making eye contact with strangers' dogs.   

Reema Mobeireek--Diagnostic Extern


Reema is pursuing her doctorate in clinical psychology and has experience working with a diverse group of young adults in the Chicagoland area. She has lived in four different countries throughout her life. Understanding people holistically is important to her - seeing each person as a whole within larger, intersecting contexts.

Most of all, she’s excited to be part of the Harold Washington College community!
