Jessi Crenshaw, MSW

Pronouns: she, her, hers

 

I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University with my BSW in 2021. Afterwards, I graduated from Jane Addams College of Social Work – UIC in 2022 with my MSW. 

I originally started as an intern with CYN and was hired on as a full-time therapist after the internship was over. I have past experience with providing crisis intervention to sexual assault survivors. I’ve also experienced working in a domestic violence shelter offering services and support to domestic violence survivors and their families. I have experience working with adolescents and teenagers managing mental health difficulties alongside situational struggles. I have a strong passion for creating a welcoming and safe environment for clients to feel as comfortable as possible in therapy.
