My name is Kenji Kuramitsu and I currently work in social services in my family's hometown of Chicago.
Licensed as a clinical social worker in Illinois, I hold graduate degrees from the University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration (AM) and McCormick Theological Seminary (M.Div), where I have served as an Adjunct Professor in Ministry and Pastoral Care. My Bachelor studies were in Social Work and Spanish at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am a Fellow with the Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis and am now completing their certification program in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
In my clinical and administrative work, I strive to bring curiosity, humor, and warmth, calling upon past experiences in health care chaplaincy and antiracism training and organizing. I have experience in nonprofit board service working with organizations in faith-based, LGBTQ, and Japanese American historical memory work.
I am interested in continuing to deepen opportunities for clinical practice as well as thoughtful consulting with progressive institutions working to further reparative and antiracist values.
