Juliann Li, MSW, LLMSW (she/her/hers)
Juliann is a clinical social worker based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She is currently working in private practice with Amplify Colectivo and Everwell Counseling, while working part-time at the University of Michigan as a post-MSW research fellow. She is an MSW graduate from the University of Michigan with degrees in social work and psychology. Because she is pursuing licensure as an LMSW (Licensed Master Social Worker) as well as a PhD in social work, Juliann is actively preparing for a career in both therapy and academia. She earned her M.S.W. from the University of Michigan in 2019, and prior to her graduate education, she graduated from the University of California at San Diego in 2017 with a B.S. in clinical psychology (summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, highest departmental honors) and a minor in human development. She worked as a behavioral therapist for children with autism for a year, as well as served as a mental health professional for the non-profit organization Camp Kesem before starting graduate school. Juliann served as a clinical intern at The Women’s Center of Southeast Michigan providing therapy and counseling services for her graduate program field placement.
Juliann’s passions and vocational goals have centered around mental health since her childhood. Due to personal experiences with mental health within her immediate family, she has been since driven to focus on improving the emotional well-being of others in potentially similar challenges. Juliann have served in a variety of social service roles including academic counselor for college students in need of resources, and chapter director for Camp Kesem, a national non-profit providing emotional support for children affected by cancer. Given Juliann’s tenacious drive towards promoting mental health, she is thus dedicated to a lifetime of helping and supporting others in need.
Juliann’s current plans are to obtain full licensure as an LMSW in Michigan and to complete doctoral studies after working in the clinical field. Her current research involves schizophrenia, stigma, and barriers to mental health care in minority populations.
