My name is Yaima Marrero Rodriguez. I am originally from Cuba, where I earned my Bachelor’s in Psychology. After I moved to US in 2008, I decided to continue my education in the Mental health field. I graduated in 2020 from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology with a MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have more than 10 years of experience working with children and families in community-based programs. My passion is to continue helping others in the process of healing and becoming stronger. My approach to counseling is based on the four principles of person-centered care: treat people with dignity, compassion, and respect; provide coordinated care, support and treatment; promote individual’s growth and development. As a multicultural counselor, I have a positive attitude toward cultural differences and a readiness to accept and respect those differences. I am fluently in English and Spanish.
