Adler Community Health Services
Dr. Ashley Poprilo is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, and her doctoral studies focused on clinical interventions to support people recovering from substance abuse. She also has a masters degree in forensic psychology, training her to skillfully help people navigating the legal system. She has experience working in a broad range of community mental health centers, forensic and an inpatient psychiatric hospital. Furthermore, Dr. Poprilo participated in research and publication at Adler University and St. John’s University, where she has focused on populations that have historically been under-resourced and oppressed communities. She completed her internship at ACHS and her post-doctoral residency at Community Health Center, Inc in Middletown, CT.
She currently supervises assessment and therapy externs, as well as doctoral interns. As a psychologist who sees the world through an Adlerian lens, she strives to assist the students she supervises by helping them understand their emerging role as a clinician. Using the discrimination model of supervision, she vacillates between the roles of teacher, counselor, and consultant while focusing on intervention, conceptualization, and personalization with students, with the goal of individualizing the way she supports their current needs. She also coordinates the Adler Community Health Services – Division of Community Health Chicago partnership with St. Leonard’s Ministries, where she guides trainees while they learn how to provide mental health services to clients who are currently involved in the judicial system.
