Denia Barrett is a licensed clinical social worker specializing in psychotherapy with children, adolescents, and their parents. She brings this same developmental perspective to her work with adults, especially as they transition from one phase to another throughout the life cycle. Her primary focus is on building on inner strengths in order to assure optimal development, mastery, and satisfaction in relationship to one’s self, family, and the outside world. Mrs. Barrett received her MSW from Michigan State University and trained as a child and adolescent psychoanalyst at the Hanna Perkins Center in Cleveland, Ohio. During her 35-year career she has been a frequent contributor to the field of child psychotherapy as an author, editor, teacher, consultant, and supervisor. She is a faculty member and child and adolescent supervising analyst at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis. She sees patients at our Chicago location but is not currently accepting new clients.
