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.

Hi I’m Gina! Do you know that everyone feels overwhelmed from time to time? Balancing the demands of life, family, and work can be challenging. I have PhD and MSW from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am a highly trained therapist with experience helping people recover and achieve their personal and professional goals. My approach is filtered through a diverse lens that views all clients as having the ability to work through challenges. Sometimes all you need is a little help to move forward. Building upon your strengths and past coping mechanisms will help you develop better ways of managing stress and conflict. There are many interventions such as meditation, cognitive behavioral, family systems and solution focused therapy that can be used to tackle the issues affecting your emotional wellbeing. I know seeking therapy can feel scary, but you are making the right decision. Contact me today so we can discuss how therapy can help you.

Currently I am only accepting new clients who are trans. I am a trans and queer Licensed Clinical Social Worker and artist with 13 years of experience in community mental health. My approach is that all people deserve to have the opportunity to experience a safe, kind, and welcoming space to explore their mental health, and that as a therapist, it is my job to nurture that. I am driven to create therapeutic opportunities for people who want and need them within the LGBTQ2IA+ community. I am open to working with clients that find themselves in need of an understanding, compassionate, and community-oriented therapist who will help to guide them through healing work. My areas of focus are: LGBTQ2IA+ and TGNC youth and emerging adults, major life transitions, trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, ADHD, gender dysphoria, and sexual identity exploration. I completed my Master of Social Work (MSW) and Master of Arts in Gender Studies (MA) degrees concurrently at Loyola University Chicago. Before entering graduate school, I worked in multiple positions focused on reproductive justice, body autonomy, and community care. My life and professional experiences have led me to provide therapy with a focus on community care through an anti oppressive lense. I understand that helping one person can have a positive impact on the greater community surrounding them. I believe that treatment approaches should fit the individual's needs and thus I utilize many modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, somatics, and narrative therapy. My approaches of curiosity and kindness create a welcoming space to engage in therapy. Choosing to work with a therapist is a powerful way to help yourself and we all deserve a chance to have focused time to explore, learn, and grow through challenges.

I am certified in Addictions, Trauma, and Narcissism Recovery. I am also a Yoga, Mindfulness, and Meditation Coach. I help people become curious about their emotions rather than fight with them. I help people realize they are not broken, they have picked up coping skills such as drugs or binge eating as protection. Instead of spending time fighting with the self and relapsing, we are going to get to know those parts of ourselves, and learn to regulate ourselves better. This is also true for couples therapy. I think getting to know those parts of us that get angry or shut down is important to our healing.

I want to make therapy as comfortable as possible. Coming to therapy can be an intimidating process. The last thing people want is some stuffy, uptight professional that makes people feel like they need to censor themselves. I pride myself in being warm, friendly, and relatable. I view therapy as a collaboration between the therapist and client. I will do my best to make your therapy experience positive. My role is to listen, teach, support, and collaborate with my clients. I have worked in a variety of settings since embarking on my journey as a mental health clinician including hospice care, domestic violence, community mental health, intensive outpatient, and urgent mental healthcare. My preference is to work with mature adolescents and adults of all ages both in person and virtually. I believe mental health services should be accessible; therefore, my private pay rate for those making under 40k per year is $80 per session.

Hi, my name is Neelma Zafar. The stigma in many cultures around mental health can be debilitating.

My approach is trauma-focused and evidence-based therapy and I believe in empowering my clients. I am trained in EMDR, DBT and CBT. Currently, I am working with sexually abused and sexually problematic children. I do family therapy sessions. I immigrated from Pakistan and I know personally what "trauma" is. I volunteered with refugees and worked with them on their mental health issues. I know Urdu, Hindi, and Punjabi languages. I volunteer at the food pantry and daily bread soup kitchen and strongly believe in giving back to the community.

Have you ever felt like you were busy doing all the things you thought would bring you a happy life, yet felt alone and disconnected from yourself and others? These feelings are often when people turn to alcohol, drugs, food, shopping or relationships to try to create those feelings of happiness, contentment and joy. It can work for a short time however the key to moving forward is to understand the reasons we seek out these distractions. When we strengthen the relationship with ourselves, the outer world becomes much more balanced and fulfilling.

Hello and welcome! As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist, specializing in working with middle-aged and older adults, I understand the daunting task of finding the right therapist amidst a sea of options. In my own journey, I recently faced the loss of my father to Louis Body Dementia and my mother to COVID. Being their caregiver was a complex blend of trials and rewards, offering me insights into the significance of my own therapeutic experience during those trying days and nights. While caring for my parents, I temporarily set aside my 'professional hat,' but I emerged from that experience with newfound wisdom that enriched both my personal and professional life. This firsthand understanding has equipped me even more to support you and your family more effectively within both the medical and mental health care systems. Recognizing that the aging process presents a unique set of challenges and needs, I would be honored to walk alongside you as you navigate this season of your life. Together, we can face the complexities and find the needed strength and resilience.

"In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into Growth or step back into safety." Abraham Maslow My name is Dr. Julie Brandenburg, Ph.D.; HSPP. If you are considering therapy, then you are already taking steps toward growth and change. My therapy specializations include but are not limited to, women's issues and trauma. What follows below is a list of issues that clients often bring up in our therapy sessions. The list is based on my professional experiences with clients, but by no means represents all of the topics and concerns that you may choose to address in therapy. Your issues are uniquely yours, and cannot be placed into anyone else's categories. I have found, however, that sometimes a list gets the ball rolling for potential clients! Some of the issues women bring up in our sessions include (but many additional issues are also discussed): Worry/Anxiety Sadness/Depression Coping with Divorce Self-Esteem Balancing Life "Roles" Self-Care Healthy/Unhealthy Relationships Adult/Child Trauma Trauma-Related Symptoms and Life Impact Life Transitions If you identified with any items on the above list or came up with items of your own, would you like help resolving these issues? The choice is yours. Therapy is for those who believe that their lives can get better and are willing to work to the best of their ability to make that happen. If you choose to work with me, I will be with you every step of the way, encouraging and challenging you to grow toward your best version of yourself.

I began training to be a psychotherapist 15 years ago after having worked in publishing for many years. Becoming a Social Worker and helping others has always been a kind of calling for me, but it took a little while for me to arrive at my goal. I hope that that part of my story helps to prove that it is never too late to change or to pursue goals. I continue to integrate the things that I have learned through formal education and through my own experiences of life so that I am best able to help others who are experiencing distress and difficulties with navigating life. We all need additional support from time-to-time, especially given the complicated, fast-changing world we live in. My goal as a psychotherapist is to be a source of support and assistance as you develop insight into the difficulties you face and as you begin to develop strategies for change. Through interactive-therapy sessions, I help you to understand and clarify life’s challenges and I support you as you begin to make the changes that are needed to make progress towards your goals. I help my clients to discover and explore a positive path in therapy that they can then continue to follow as they pursue their goals and their lives independently.
