Alynn McCormick is a Licensed Professional Counselor and trained art therapist who earned her Master’s in Art Therapy and Counseling from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Within a trauma-informed, relational framework, Alynn’s work with youth and their families utilizes a non-judgmental, systemic approach and prioritizes needs and strengths while working to foster healing and growth.
