Ms. Nadia Sharara

Ms. Nadia Sharara has joined our Universal School family in 2021 as an Intern Therapist. Nadia will complete her Masters in Clinical Psychology Counseling Practice in May of 2022 and gain her LPC as a Licenced Professional Counselor. She comes from a diverse background of experience working at AAFS as well as Gateway Foundation Chicago Independence as an intern therapist. Nadia is extensively trained in domestic violence and certified in mental health first aid. She has worked with individuals, children, and families and is well-versed in motivational interviewing, CBT and DBT.

Nadia currently works Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at Universal. She will be shadowing Ms. Said in the coming weeks and plans to enter 4th-7th classrooms to teach weekly SEL lessons as well as meet with students from those grades for individual counseling. She will continue to receive clinical supervision from me for the next few years until she gains her LCPC and supervises the next intern, hopefully another one of our alumni ;).
