Feliz Lucia Molina holds a Master’s in Clinical Social Work at the School for Social Service Administration at The University of Chicago. She trained as a clinical case worker at Heartland Alliance Human Care Services in Chicago where she worked with individuals and families in a transitional housing program that provides services in counseling, employment, and access to housing.
She also trained in psychotherapy with a psychodynamic approach at a community mental health center where she implemented aspects of CBT, ACT, narrative therapy, and trauma-informed care in a 6-month treatment program for adults and couples. In the therapeutic process, she is attuned to relational approaches exemplified in shared experiences and narratives centered on the experience of POC, immigrant/emigrant/migrant, and first/second generation while acknowledging the stigma of mental health diagnoses. She is also interested in working with writers, artists, and creative thinkers who value language as poetry, world-building, and as a way to work through personal and systemic traumas.
