Hanin Harb, M.S.Ed., LPCC, C-DBT, NCC
Mental Health Counselor, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity Program Manager
Hanin is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with a degree from Western Illinois University. Hanin’s work focuses on fostering connections, community care, and collective wellbeing, especially within those communities that are underrepresented in mental health care. She is informed by social justice and anti-oppression frameworks. Her objective is to work collaboratively to understand each students’ lived experiences and understand their intersecting identities within each unique context. Hanin is a certified Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) clinician and incorporates curiosity, mindfulness, empathy, and education into her work. While working together, Hanin focuses on developing new ways to cope, promoting insight and self-awareness, building resiliency, celebrating and exploring cultural identities, and developing a greater sense of self.
In her role serving students in LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, international, and first generation communities and identities, Hanin is dedicated to reflecting on and deconstructing her own internalized beliefs and biases. She continues to reassess how she contributes and maintains ongoing white supremacy, cis and hetero normativity, and inequalities in our healthcare system. Hanin hopes to create and foster an environment that is inclusive, respectful, safe, and welcoming for marginalized communities.
Hanin identifies as a Palestinian-American, cis-gender woman. She has lived in Minnesota since 2011 and grew up in Iowa and Palestine. Her passion in this work stems from her experiences as a Palestinian child of immigrant parents.
