D. Gordon & Associates, MA, LCPC, ATR-BC, Counselor in Chicago
I'm a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a Board Certified Registered Art Therapist. Mindfulness, compassion, and collaboration make up the foundation of my therapeutic approach. I work with people of all ages who are seeking treatment for depression, self-esteem, anxiety, relationship problems, grief/loss, trauma, concerns related to identity, adjustment, and general life stress. I am committed to working with you to provide a supportive space to work together to meet your needs and goals. My office is located in Hyde Park within walking distance from the University of Chicago. Email or call me to schedule your appointment.
I provide a safe and nonjudgmental space to facilitate healing and personal growth. We will work together to gain insight and develop skills to get "unstuck" and moving in the direction that you hope to go. My approach to therapy is based on respect, warmth, trust, and honesty.
In addition to being a Counselor, I'm a Board Certified Registered Art Therapist. Art therapy can help people explore thoughts, feelings, and experiences non-verbally through the use of art materials and imagery. Art therapy can be incorporated in your treatment if requested. The choice is yours to make.
