About Illana

Illana received a Masters in Organizational Psychology, with a specialization in Diversity Management from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. The Chicago School shaped her belief that inclusion in the workplace is not just in allegiance to a larger social responsibility, but is also a consumer driven responsibility that honors the customer’s desire to see their interests reflected back to them through the services and products in which they invest.

Illana went on to complete her Masters in Clinical Social Work from Smith College School for Social Work. She chose this program both for its rigorous academic probing and unyielding loyalty to pioneering an anti-racism mission, as well as for its heavily psychodynamic clinical paradigm and respect for the intrapsychic complexity of the human experience.

Her philosophical perspective is built securely upon the organizing principle that diversity and inclusion are personally, professionally and politically sound criterion upon which to structure long term interpersonal fortitude and subsequent societal stability. As such one of the primary motivations of her consulting practice is to promote a rise in diversity/inclusion consciousness through interpersonal discourse, political advocacy and professional onus that informs progressive organizational change.

Illana's research interests include psychodynamic theory, trauma as it pertains to racial and gender identity development, child development, sexuality and organizational inclusion implementation to name a few. She has done trainings on racial identity development, identity trauma and emergent-need based counseling for clinicians and has developed and implemented programing around employment training for marginalized populations.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADD/ADHD

I have an MSW and I have worked with children and adults who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD for the last 8 years. I believe that each person is more than their clinical diagnosis. I also believe that it is important to consider each persons limitations and challenges in order to assist them in discovering their fullest potential.

Career Development

A career development consultation is an assertive strategy for those individuals who know their potential but are uncertain as to how to move forward. We can work together to develop tools that will aid in the promotion your personal skills that have otherwise gone unutilized.

College Counseling

I have an MSW and have worked as a counseling professional for more than 10 years. Seeking counseling is an ideal method of support for individuals who have identified an issue in their lives that they would like guidance and support around addressing. I understand the challenges that arise when trying to juggle school, career planning and life stressors and I work with clients in order to find the balance that works best for them.
