Karin Peterson, LCSW

Director of Clinical Operations

Karin Peterson, LCSW, was delighted to join our team as the Director of Clinical Operations in October of 2021 after many years of working in the adoption field where she provided counseling, clinical supervision, and leadership in the nonprofit sector in Evanston, Illinois. Karin is inspired and motivated by our mission at YFC as she believes that everyone deserves to have access to mental healthcare.

Karin grew up in Libertyville and can’t believe that she now has three teenagers attending Libertyville High School as she once did. Karin has worked and volunteered in many capacities within Lake County throughout her life and looks forward to further serving the community in her role at YFC.
