Current Trainees

Matt Bishop, Post-Masters Fellow

M.Ed., (2019) LCMHCA, NCC
I believe that a therapeutic experience is most transformative when it is collaborative, empowering, and tailored to the individual.  I aim to provide that experience by using a relational approach that is informed by each person’s unique culture and values.  I integrate this framework with evidence-based interventions grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
My clinical interests include anxiety, depression, identity development, interpersonal relationships, adjustment issues, and coping with trauma.  That being said, I conceptualize each individual using a wellness model where the focus is on the person as a whole and not limited to their identified problems or potential diagnoses.

Mala Chintalapudi, Post-Master’s Fellow

M.Ed., (2020) LCMHCA, NCC

As a counselor, I use Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) as a framework to understand human experience. I use visual arts, mindfulness and experiential techniques to help clients pursue a rich, values-driven life. I am originally from India, but have lived in the United States for several years.  I have a special interest in collaborating with International students and helping them navigate cross cultural barriers and explore how our individual and collective identities influence our life experiences.

Jack’s approach to therapy involves creating a non-judgmental atmosphere where clients can feel free to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as well as past events and current stressors. Jack believes in not only understanding current issues, but also how past experiences may impact the lens through which we see the present and future. Jack’s special clinical interests include behavioral health, addictive behaviors, assessment, and sport psychology.

Irang Kim, Master’s Level Intern

I am an ethnic minority therapist with immigrant experiences. I was born and raised in South Korea until I immigrated to the United States in 2018. I’ve been an international student studying at universities in Los Angeles, New York City, and Raleigh. I was also an immigrant woman thriving to gain employment skills to secure an entry-level job in the U.S. All these experiences equipped myself to come to this profession to help foreign populations treat their mental health issues with a minority therapist. I am currently in the Master’s of Social Work program at NC State University, pursuing a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist licenses. My interests include anxiety, depression, addictive behavior concerns, multicultural conflicts, and immigrant trauma.

Lorin Leake, Post-Master’s Fellow

MSW., (2019) LCSWA

I am passionate about working with young adults who are navigating life transitions. As a generalist counselor I can support you with a variety of concerns, but I have previous experience and special interest in eating and body image concerns, anxiety, racial/ethnic and LGBTQIA+ identity development, spirituality, social justice, Veterans’ concerns, and healing from trauma and sexual violence. I draw upon a combination of theories including psychodynamic, relational, cognitive behavioral, and Internal Family Systems therapy. I believe you already possess everything you need for healing within you, so I strive to provide a caring, safe, collaborative relationship where you can be heard and explore whatever concerns brought you to the counseling center today.
