Hi, I'm Daisha Hill
I am a recent graduate from Northwestern University’s Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program specializing in children and adolescents. During my time at Northwestern, I completed a practicum at The Family Institute counseling adults as well as an internship at JPA counseling middle and high school students at a conjoined elementary and high school on the south side of Chicago.
I also earned a Bachelors in psychology and a minor in social work from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. During undergrad, I was an elementary school tutor, and a volunteer at a crisis nursery. I was also involved in multiple organizations geared towards diversity, inclusion and equity developments which have emphasized the importance of providing a space of vulnerability, comfort and support to those from historically marginalized groups. Following undergrad, I completed a year of service with an Americorp program as a mentor, tutor, and social emotional learning facilitator to 7th and 8th graders at an elementary school, as well as had involvement in other non-profits dedicated to the development of youth in underserved and marginalized communities.
My current role at JPA is a school based therapist providing individual therapy, facilitating classroom groups, and building relationships with school staff, parents and the local community in order to holistically support students.
I enjoy being able to see the seed -- that is potential, blossom in a person after they have discovered the unknown parts of themselves which comes with telling one’s story.
