Abigail Backer, MSW

Therapist – [email protected]

My professional experiences in community organizing, youth education and empowerment, and bilingual social work ground my practice and my belief that relationships are the foundation of all change, no matter how large or small. I am a recent graduate from University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration where I specialized in clinical social work with immigrant and refugee youth. I am passionate about social justice, community engagement, and building relationships rooted in empathy and mutual respect. 

As a therapist at Marvelous Minds, I look forward to continuing to support children and their families, channeling their many strengths to move through these challenging times. My most common practices include family systems work, strengths-based, psychodynamic, and trauma- informed therapies. I look forward to walking with you on your journey!
