Maxine Carr


I am a clinical psychology doctoral intern, meaning I have been in school for a long time. I have utilized my time as a well-aged graduate student to explore the human experience. I understand that the years spent as a student in higher education can be a definitive era in any individual’s personal history book. I have experience in helping students navigate depression, anxiety, adjustment concerns, loss, sexual assault, family issues, identity issues, self-injury and feeling stuck.

I believe in the power of humor, cooking, nature, dogs, time and art.

I am a clinical psychology doctoral intern from Adler University in Chicago, Illinois. I became interested in continuing my clinical work with college and graduate students after my previous practica experiences at Northwestern University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

As a current doctoral intern at Northern Illinois University, one of my main responsibilities is to provide group and individual psychotherapy to clients who are experiencing depression, anxiety, loss, sexual assault, family issues, identity issues and adjustment concerns. I am actively engaged in new areas of focus within my clinical work regarding men with depression and the mental health of athletes.
