Gabrielle Koren, LCSW, SAC
Mental Health & Addiction Therapist
LCSW and SAC, UW-Milwaukee
Gabrielle Koren joined the UHS team in September 2016 as a generalist mental health counselor and addiction therapist. She meets with patients in one-on-one and group settings, providing individual assessments, facilitating Alcohol and Other Drugs support groups, and advising for Live Free, a student recovery-based group.
Initially entering school as a pre-med student, Koren developed an interest in psychology and sociology, redirecting her career goals. She discovered her professional passion for addiction therapy during her clinical training in Milwaukee, after working with clients with co-occurring mental health and substance use issues. “A combination of both backgrounds is helpful, especially when people are struggling with both mental health and substance abuse,” says Koren.
Koren has a genuine and supportive counseling approach. “I’m there to help with the student’s concerns, and give them an opportunity to feel supported,” says Koren.
In her spare time, Koren enjoys exploring Madison with her family.
