June Parks, Ph.D. is a licensed clinical psychologist, higher education consultant, speaker, lecturer, and youth empowerment specialist who shows young people, and the professionals who provide services to them, how to obtain mental wellness and resilience.

June C. Parks, Ph.D. celebrates the passion and dedication that higher education professionals bring to their work as they serve other professionals and students, and this appreciation can be found in every aspect of her work. With over 20 years of experience in the areas of child psychology, trauma and human development, June has the skills to enhance student well-being, and she shows other professionals how to do the same through specialized consulting.

June understands that the field of higher education places extremely high, and often unrealistic demands on the time and energy of its professionals. Her work addresses the attrition, burnout and staff turnover which are often the unfortunate consequences of this experience.

June has been featured in webinars, podcasts, and panels and has spoken at the University of Chicago, Loyola University Chicago, NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, the Association for University and College Counseling Center Directors, Michigan College Access Network, and the National Child Traumatic Stress Network.

June earned her doctorate from Northwestern University. She has taught masters and doctoral-level students at the University of Chicago and the Chicago School of Professional Psychology in the areas of child and adolescent development and child and adolescent trauma. June maintains a successful private practice in Chicago, Illinois where she treats children, adolescents, adults, and families. June is a mother of two young adults who keep her energized and closely connected to her work in youth empowerment.
