Carol Yoken, Ph.D.
I am a licensed psychologist in Illinois. I have a B.A. in Psychology from Wesleyan University and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. I completed a residency at the University of North Carolina Medical School in Chapel Hill and a two-year post-doctorate at Northwestern University Medical School. In graduate school I specialized in psychotherapy research—what makes therapy effective. At Northwestern I specialized in practicing psychotherapy for complicated situations.
After a brief period as an assistant professor of Psychology at Loyola University of Chicago, I went on to direct mental health clinics serving diverse community and/or student clients at Northern Illinois University, Illinois Institute of Technology, and the University of Cincinnati. I have published a wide range of professional material, reviewed research for journals, presented papers and workshops at professional meetings and in community settings, and trained and advised other mental health professionals in their treatment of clients.
Language, culture, and multiculturalism have been interests of mine for many years. I have worked as a therapist with clients from 40 countries. In addition to my career in Psychology, I earned a Graduate Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I volunteer at local agencies serving immigrants and refugees.
