Greetings, It has always been my desire to serve and bring out the best in people. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Licensed Practitioner of The Healing Arts, with a Master’s degree in Social Work, and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Growing up with two parents who struggled with addiction, I experienced anxiety and depression at an early age, and did not want to become a product of my environment. This led me to seek a different path. One where I could not only help myself, but a path where I could take every opportunity to help others as well. I embarked on this journey into the human psyche to gain a better understanding of behaviors, mental functioning, and how I can best serve clients in achieving their desired goals. I am here to assist those who are willing to roll up their sleeves and put in the work. You have taken a courageous first step; so let's see if we are a good fit, as I would be honored to embark on this journey in collaboration with you. I strive to build a genuine connection with my clients by fostering an environment of transparency and support. You are the expert in your journey, and I am here to assist.

I understand that sometimes, we face situations that can be challenging to handle, even with our best efforts. I have a broad understanding of trauma, which allows me to offer empathy and support to my clients without judgment. During our conversations, I will be a compassionate listener, and you can trust that nothing you say will ever surprise me. I specialize in evidence-based practices and frameworks, particularly those related to issues that affect Blacks, Indigenous people, and other persons of color and the LGBTQIA+ community. I check my emails and messages every 3-4 hours between 10:00 am and 7:00 pm (CDT), and I strive to respond to you as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours. Please understand that my off days vary and are reflected on the appointment scheduling page. If you need to cancel an appointment, please do so at least 24 hours in advance; otherwise, you will be billed at the no-show rate. Thank you for choosing me as your therapist. I look forward to working with you. I look forward to our chat! Dr. T

Life is hard. Everyone walks through tough times, and no one should have to do it alone. It is my goal to walk with my clients through trials and see them emerge a stronger, healthier version of themselves. It takes courage to ask for help, therefore everyone who walks through my door is treated with respect and met with empathy and compassion. As a therapist, I truly believe that mental, physical, and spiritual health are all interconnected in a way that cannot be separated. My approach is holistic, helping my clients to create a life they enjoy through focusing on all aspects of well-being for long lasting progress. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to encourage individuals of all ages, couples, and families to change their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors through practical and useful tools that can be used in everyday life. I aim to foster an environment of comfort and calm. My office is a judgement-free zone, where healing truly happens.

The desire to be a parent runs deep through your soul, and is unlike any other feeling. As a compassionate and empathetic therapist, I understand the complex emotional and psychological impact that infertility and miscarriage can have. For women or men starting their journey to conception or who are having difficulty conceiving, I can: • Support you in maintaining hope, peace and positivity while navigating uncertainty and help you build resiliency as you work through obstacles. • Help you to recognize and access your deeper intuition, so you are better equipped to honor your body, spirit and mind with the highest intention throughout your journey. • Work with you on increasing clarity and purpose around your fertility journey, checking in with your emotional, psychological and spiritual alignment as you move forward on your unique path. • Utilize a holistic approach to address integrative lifestyle strategies that may be beneficial to your fertility path, including nutrition, meditation and sleep quality. • Assist you in addressing relationship difficulties that can arise out of the stress of fertility challenges, and help you develop strategies to increase intimacy with your partner and foster healthy communication. For women and men considering or undergoing assisted reproductive treatments: • Modern medical technologies can sometimes cause us to feel disconnected from the natural processes of conception and pregnancy. We can work together to source your inner compass to establish personal guidelines and boundaries around assisted reproduction treatments so that you can approach these decisions and situations from a place of empowerment and sovereignty. • I can help you learn effective coping strategies for stress, depression and anxiety that may arise from diagnosis and treatment. • We can work together on developing a toolbox for knowing how to respond to inquiries and comments from family and friends and navigating workplace considerations. • In between treatments, we can focus on building resiliency while preparing emotionally and psychologically for your next round of treatment. For women and men who have experienced reproductive loss: • The devastating and seemingly invisible pain of losing a pregnancy is unique in that it involves not only the loss of your baby, but also involves the loss of the future - and there is no accepted way to mark that loss. Sometimes it seems that friends and family members expect the person to move on quickly. Partners often grieve differently - and for men, the trauma of miscarriage is often overlooked. Also, some women may suffer guilt or shame associated with the loss that doesn't tend to occur with other types of grieving. • There is no universal template for grief. Together, we will address your unique needs as you work through your grieving process.

Laura Rae Venditti, LCPC, LMHC. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, (LCPC). I obtained my B.A. in Psychology from Saint Xavier University, where I minored in Pastoral Ministry. I obtained my M.A. in Gerontological Counseling from Adler University. I have serviced clients from 5 (yrs.) through 90 (yrs.) in academic, clinical, and nursing home settings. I approach therapy within a client-centered climate, using the tenets of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), through a solution-focused lens. I help clients identify obstacles and explore solutions, believing that if one wants something to change, one has to be willing to help foster change. The client and I will explore barriers and remove roadblocks that have denied them their joy. I work with my clients to explore their vision of a better life in a quest to make it their reality. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, and I especially find joy in time spent with my grandchildren. I take advantage of the benefits of exercise and its contribution to attaining balance and minimizing stress. One of my favorite pastimes is baseball. I greatly enjoy attending White Sox games. I love the advantages of living in the city where I can walk, run, or bike, most anywhere I need to go.
