Under Clinical Supervision

Ms. Sandy Maw, Licensed Professional Counselor, 178019907 is practicing under the supervision of Celia Zanayed (Illinois, Licensed Psychologist, 071010413) at Olive Tree Mental Wellness.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

Please dont laugh but I was largely influenced by TV shows like NCIS, CSI and Psych! It intrigued me that we could use the knowledge of how the human brain and personality worked to help improve a person's daily life (and solve crimes). Unfortunately, I found Criminal/Forensic Psychology to be less appealing to me as a grew up and fortunately, I still wanted to learn about how our brains worked and find ways to help people in their daily lives and that inspired me to continue studying Psychology in higher education.

Work History

My practicum (internship) experience was at a children and adolescent psychiatric hospital program on the West side of Chicago, which primarily served lower socioeconomic status POC children from all over the city. I worked with a variety of cases and clients across inpatient services to partial hospitalization patients. Due to the intensive nature of the hospital, I have a lot of experience working with trauma cases. Personally, I would like to work with immigrants, people of color (POC) and LGBTQIA+ people who are often underserved in the mental health field. I currently work at a trauma focused private practice which often serves these populations as well due to the intersectionality of multiple identities.
