Rui (Ray) Wang
Masters-Level Clinical Therapy Intern
University of Chicago

Hello, and welcome! My name is Ray, a dedicated student on the path to attaining a Master of Social Work degree. It is with great enthusiasm that I join the Lake Park Counseling team as an intern, where I aspire to make a positive impact in the lives of individuals seeking support and understanding.

I strongly believe in the power of self growth and recovery — everyone navigates psychological trauma uniquely, and it often marks a prolonged healing journey. I recognize that embarking on a path to self-recovery requires courage and determination, and I commend your commitment to taking this significant step towards improved mental well-being. As a student therapist, I'm dedicated to providing a supportive and collaborative space where you can explore the process of self-recovery and work towards achieving your goals.

In our therapy sessions, we will work together to establish personalized treatment goals, drawing on the principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). These therapeutic approaches not only empower you with valuable tools but also promote self-recovery by equipping you to navigate challenges and cultivate a sense of agency and resilience.

Throughout our shared exploration, we will delve into the underlying factors contributing to your thoughts and feelings, leveraging the insights gained to drive positive change in your daily life. By embracing the concept of self-recovery, we will collaborate to foster personal growth, self-awareness, and lasting well-being.

Thank you for considering me as a partner in your journey towards self-recovery. I look forward to embarking on this transformative process with you and helping you uncover your inner strength and resilience as you move towards a life of empowered well-being.
