Biography

Regina Chow Trammel, Ph.D., LCSW, is passionate about mentoring students so they can improve the lives of others as social workers. Her background is in clinical social work practice, which includes more than a decade in private practice in the Chicago area, as well as experience in psychiatric and medical social work settings. Her area of clinical focus has been in the treatment of depression, anxiety, postpartum mood disorders, sexual abuse history, family conflict, self-injury, and eating disorders, and her research focuses on the effects of a Christian-informed mindfulness intervention—as an alternative to traditional Buddhist-informed mindfulness—on stress management. Trammel has academic research publications on mindfulness, speaks on the topic, and recently delivered a TEDx talk called “Stressing Less: Using Mindfulness to Deal with Everyday Pressures.” She is married, has two sons, and enjoys yoga, skiing, and traveling with her family.
