Our Clinical Team

Shabnam Forouzin, MA

Psychology (PsyD) Intern

Shabnam Forouzin, a third-year doctoral student at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, is en route to earning a PsyD in clinical psychology. 


She has previously earned a Masters of Arts from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in clinical psychology and a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Argosy University. Before entering the field of psychology, she worked in banking/finance for over 10 years.

Her clinical interests include treating adults (particularly patients of color) with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, and sexual identity concerns. She also works with patients who are experiencing racial disparities in their every day lives. She aims to reduce negative stigmas associated with mental illness while working with patients to achieve their personal health goals. From mild to severe mental illness, Shabnam helps patients navigate overwhelming, acute challenges. Her biggest clinical strengths are active listening, offering empathy, and developing treatment and safety goals for patients.

She uses a mix of psychodynamic interventions to uncover the root of maladaptive behaviors and cognitive behavioral therapy to focus on symptom relief of problems that are impacting daily functioning. She values the impact of consistent therapy with a practical, holistic approach to improve the trajectory of one’s life.

When she is not treating patients at iHEAL and doing school work, she works at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (NSPL) as a crisis worker. Since 2017, Shabnam's work with NSPL has offered her the opportunity to support people of all ages, races, and SES backgrounds in very trying, vulnerable times.   

She is an active student member of the American Psychological Association.
