Hello! I'm Alyssa Norbeck and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Illinois. I understand that it can feel vulnerable and intimidating to begin therapy, but I'm passionate about making therapy a safe space where you feel heard and understood. My therapeutic style is empathetic, nonjudgemental, and individualized. I draw upon a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities (such as CBT, ACT, ERP, and EMDR) to help you reach your goals. I received my Master's in Social Work from USC. I've worked with a variety of age groups presenting with a range of clinical issues in both individual and group settings, including private practice, mental health and substance use intensive outpatient programs (IOP), crisis management and stabilization, Employee Assistance Programs, and in skilled nursing facilities/long term care. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing with my dog, gardening, crafting, and kayaking.

Hi! I'm so glad you are here to learn a bit more about me. Picking the right therapist is such an important decision and I want you to feel confident you've found a great match. One of my biggest priorities is to make therapy feel good for people. I know that for many, therapy can seem awkward or uncomfortable. I'm trying my best to change that narrative by allowing our time together to be relaxed and a space where you feel like an equal. I want you to feel seen and understood anytime we work together. My specialty is helping those who have experienced truly difficult seasons in life find three main things: self-awareness, balance and peace. This often includes working with those who have had tough childhood experiences, first responders, relationship issues (divorce, abuse, infidelity, etc.), sexual assault victims, and parents with postpartum anxiety and/or depression. In our sessions together we will focus on getting to know your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. We will identify where the problem spots are, and collaborate in creating strategies you can use to feel more balanced in your day-to-day life. We can also explore memories and past experiences, understanding how these affect your present. Ultimately, our work can help you to find peace with the past, contentment with your present and enthusiasm for the future.

Hello! I'm Michelle. As a dedicated mental health therapist, I am committed to guiding individuals on their journey towards well-being with a strong emphasis on self-care and intention. My goal is to get my clients started with building awareness of the patterns and behaviors causing distress, setting out to build strategies into seeing the “bigger picture”, and then making the choice to shift away into "new and different". I believe that the mental health journey can feel different for everyone and is valid for all. It’s addressing the pile-on effects of everyday stress and learning how to breathe through anxiety and panic attacks. It’s establishing and keeping a daily routine as part of ADHD symptom management and finding self-compassion when experiencing depressive thoughts. There is no perfect or prescriptive way to approach the process of mental well-being. My role as a therapist is to support, facilitate, and provide collaborative space to examine all the pieces.

I am originally from Brazil, native Portuguese speaker with a proficiency in Spanish and English, and I have been using these skills to provide counseling services in all three languages. I have been offering psychotherapy services for adolescents, adults, families, and couples. My work is guided by psychoanalytic orientation valuing the ethics of listening and acceptance as a way to assist and access people in their relationships with themselves, with others, and the world. This approach focuses on the unconscious processes and in the singularities of each individual. The main intention is to amplify the life potential in each of us, helping us to understand our responsibility in the way we live, work, suffer, and love. This process can be a liberating experience in that it will not try to adapt us to fixed standards. It guides us to cope with our own way of existing, allowing us to say no to the unbearable and sustain our own position/desire in the world.

One of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. There is so much value, understanding, and growth in developing a healthy relationship with yourself. If you think about it, the longest and most important relationship we will ever have is the one we have with ourselves. I am here to help you begin or continue that journey. I am the type of therapist you want to reach out to if you are struggling with perfectionism or low self-esteem, situations that make you feel anxious, depressed, and easily overwhelmed, or that feeling of being completely burned out and in need of self-care. Whether you are looking to enhance and strengthen your skillset or looking for a listening ear to unwind and receive support, I am here to help you. Together, we will explore, identify, and discover what works and what does not. We will figure out the best way to get you the quality of life you want and need. Whether you are ready to take action or contemplating where to start, feel free to reach out so we can connect and see if I would be a good match for what you are looking for.
