(her/hers)

Zori is a Provisional Licensed Professional Counselor and doctoral student at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. She received her bachelor's in Comparative Human Development from the University of Chicago in Chicago, IL, and her master's in Mental Health Counseling from Northwestern University, in Evanston, IL. 

As a mental health counselor, Zori believes counseling is an opportunity to collaboratively and safely explore patterns of behavior and thinking that occur in clients' relationship with themselves and others throughout their life. By becoming aware of these patterns, client's can learn healthier emotional and behavioral ways of interacting, as well as, how to advocate for themselves and their needs.

Zori has experience working with youth and adults from diverse populations on issues related to stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, life transitions, race, and LGBTQIA+ issues. She has also been trained in the emotional development model of Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT-ED), a parent-child centered therapy used to improve behavioral and socio-emotional problems in children between the ages of 3 to 6 years old.
