Samantha Elliott, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

1409 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago, Illinois

All humans suffer with feelings that they re not good enough. It presents differently in each person and the treatment process may look different, but the core struggle is there is all of us. I work with clients to identify where their core belief of inadequacy comes from so that they can be aware when that is stopping them in life. I help clients to be present with themselves and their thoughts so that they can live a life of value and continue moving forward despite their past.


Taylor Newendorp, M.A., LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

6160 N. Cicero Ave. Suite 304, Chicago, Illinois

I take a Positive Psychology/Strengths-Based approach to all of my work. People often lose their sense of self when they are struggling with any type of Anxiety, Depression, major life stressors, relationship difficulties, or health issues (including Eating Disorders and Addiction). All of these things cloud our judgment and interfere with our ability to function as well as we might otherwise. Using both Cognitive-Behavioral and Narrative Therapy techniques, I can help you increase your level of self-awareness and separate your true self from the problems currently impacting you. This will allow you to regain your confidence and move forward with your life as you would like it to be.

Katie Bogacki, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

4801 W. Peterson Ave., Ste. 308 , Chicago , Illinois

I do not subscribe to only one modality of psychotherapy. As we are all individuals, I believe in an individual approach to each client and pull from different theories to assist in greater life satisfaction and fulfillment. My office is a space that I find great peace in and hope that my clients do as well. Entering psychotherapy can be an intimidating experience for some and my goal is to ensure a safe space, where clients are not judged for their emotions, and learn how to accept themselves more fully.


Amanda Atkins, MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

4050 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, Illinois

Psychotherapy is one of the best tools for managing your anxiety and depression. Amanda has worked with clients ranging from physicians to police officers to actors, aged 10-70. She values the unique details that make people who they are. Amanda loves helping clients come to a place of self understanding and reflection. Once people are able to better understand their patterns of behavior, they have the power to change and stop going on "auto pilot."


Jens Hussey, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor & Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor

25 East Washington St. , Suite 1719, Chicago, Illinois

Psychotherapy - for those willing to take the journey - can be one of the most amazing experiences we do in life. When a person gets insight into their own psychological processes, and achieves that understanding of how it all comes together and interacts on a psychological level, it can be really empowering, liberating, and exciting. This can also be a bit scary to try because usually there is a lot going on before someone decides to find a therapist. But any journey starts with that first step - and that first step can be a great step.


Kristen Jacobsen, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor / Therapist

3166 N. Lincoln Ave, Suite 207, Chicago, Illinois

Psychotherapy can be an intimidating term. Society has caused a lot of people to believe that seeking help has negative connotations. In reality, it's a sign of strength that you can acknowledge there's a problem and be brave enough to seek out a solution. Psychotherapy will do just that. I can help you navigate through whatever problems you may be facing and aide you in alleviating your symptoms and overcoming these obstacles.


Philip Kolba, MA


Chicago, Illinois

I provide brief solutions-focused psychotherapy to help clients assess personal and professional functioning, clarify goals, and strengthen social and emotional skills. I specialize in brief online relationship counseling. Online counseling allows clients to seek help as needed, engage in therapy at a schedule that's convenient to them, and keep their counselor as they progress through life. I work with LGBTQ and hetero clients on individual, couple, and alternative relationship concerns. Clients explore issues that impact their professional and personal relationships, including communication, power dynamics, and intimacy. I accept US$ and cryptocurrencies.

Julianne Neely, MSW, LCSW

Play Therapist

2865 N. Clybourn Ave., Chicago, Illinois

Child psychotherapy differs from other forms of psychotherapy in that we don't expect children to sit across from us on a couch and talk through their struggles. Instead we find fun, creative, and engaging ways to help children overcome their challenges. You will often find us playing games and creating art projects to help children and teens learn coping skills, communication skills, and more!


Louise Dimiceli-Mitran, MA, MT-BC, FAMI

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC)

2656 W. Montrose Avenue, Chicago, Illinois

Everybody reaches a time in their lives when they need help. If you're suffering from a past experience or it's still going on now, together we will decide on a course of action and move through the feelings, behaviors or images that you want to shift. While I've had many clients respond well to music and imagery experiences, your story and way of working will determine the best way through to the other side. Often initiating a daily practice can help, perhaps breathing, imaging, or a way of mindfully observing what you're feeling can help empower a different way of reacting to the world around you.


James McClymonds, Psy.D., HSPP

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

55 East Monroe Street, Suite 3800, Chicago, Illinois

Psychotherapy is a form of "talk-treatment" with psychologists which uses scientifically validated procedures to help you develop healthier and more effective habits. The form of psychotherapy I most commonly use is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is effective for problems with unhealthy behaviors, depression, anxiety, anger, and concentration. I have a more practical approach to treatment so in psychotherapy with me, we will discuss the problem bothering you and how to fix it efficiently, practice coping skills to address the problem, and then implement these into your life. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.


Joyce Marter, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

180 N. Michigan Ave. Ste 410, Chicago, Illinois

I believe that seeking psychotherapy is healthy and proactive and that we could all benefit from therapy or counseling at different points in our lives. I feel that a good therapeutic relationship is critical to successful therapy and I aim to really understand my clients and develop collaborative relationships. My therapeutic style is warm and empathic and also direct and active. My theoretical orientation is eclectic in that I incorporate therapeutic techniques that I see would be most effective for each client. Overall, I help my clients achieve higher self-esteem and increased happiness personally and professionally.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Chicago, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Chicago may have flexibility or sliding scales
