About Dr. Whitney Graff

Whitney Graff Psy.D. ABPP


I’m a Board Certified Licensed Clinical Psychologist with experience in both psychological assessment and therapy. I received my Doctorate of Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in 2014. As part of my education, I completed supervised training in hospitals, community mental health clinics, home-based services, and private practices, and worked with clients from many different backgrounds, representing diverse personal identities and cultures. I was fortunate to gain experience with a wide range of clinical disorders along the way, and I continue to pursue clinical education in new areas of the field.


I bring a broad collection of experience and knowledge to thorough, comprehensive diagnostic assessments and individually-tailored psychotherapy. My therapeutic approach is grounded in evidence-based, thoroughly validated treatment approaches, especially Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). 

In addition to my clinical work, I teach psychotherapy practices to graduate students at the University of Chicago Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice. 

On a more personal note, I’m a mom, a dog lover, and a collector of knick-knacks. I’m a former theatre kid and ballet dancer who now enjoys these from a seat in the audience. And I am often found taking a long walk while listening to a podcast.

As part of the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PsyPact), I am able to treat clients via telehealth technology when they are physically located in any of these states.
