Rohit Agrawal, M.A.
I am a doctoral candidate at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCS), where I earned my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, and I am completing my final training year at Johns Hopkins Counseling Center. In my work, I place an emphasis on identity exploration and empowerment. I often focus on developing my client’s own sense of power through recognition of marginalized identity factors, making connections with resources and communities, and working towards goals co-created by my clients and me, as a team. My theoretical orientation is largely existential, blending in elements of relational/feminist theories and integrating mindfulness practices. My research and advocacy interests lie in expanding the multicultural lens of mental healthcare, as well as critiquing systems to combat oppressive and colonized ways of thinking and being. I am interested in engaging with the communities of which I am a part, as well as continuously educating myself and others through stories and experiences.
I have worked primarily in college counseling centers, both in community college and private University settings, and I have also trained in a private practice conducting intellectual and emotional assessments. Much of my work has been with adults of diversely intersecting identities and backgrounds who often present with anxiety, depression, academic and interpersonal difficulties, and trauma reactions.
Outside of the office, I greatly enjoy singing and beatboxing, cooking up new recipes, and playing Dungeons & Dragons with my friends.
