You feel like you're barely hanging in there. Like you've lost your way, or maybe even yourself. You just can't seem to get back on solid footing-emotionally OR mentally. You’ve tried your usual tips and tricks to feel better, but they’ve barely moved the needle. Your brain feels like it's not your friend and it's tough to find happiness in the things that usually bring you joy. Your confidence has been knocked down a few pegs. You either feel keyed up with constant worry or knocked flat, laying on the couch or your bed without the energy to do anything. And now you've decided: it's time for a change.

My therapeutic style focuses on safety and empowerment. While I may be the “professional,” you are the expert of your own life. To establish trust, I wear my heart on my nerdy sleeve. I would never ask you to risk your vulnerability if I am unwilling to risk my own. I may use humor to foster hope and ease discomfort. I welcome you to question my perspectives to improve the power of our co-created insights. We will collaborate and develop ways for you to make new choices, break old patterns, and build more effective supports. Our work will help you unlock your potential for healing, and get you closer to the person you want to be.

I understand the hesitation in starting the therapy process; it can be intimidating. I admire the bravery that you possess by embarking on this journey. I work with individuals to resolve complex traumas, anxiety, depression, & identity-based wounds. As an immigrant & former refugee, my life experiences have further taught me to navigate through the events of migration, & violence, & the traumas of displacement, and loss. Some of these personal experiences have sharpened my capacity to delicately highlight the consequences of trauma, & grief on the clients that I worked with. My experience is a merge of educational & professional

When you struggle, you deserve to have a place to share your ups and downs, free from the opinions of others. As your therapist, I’m here to provide that to you.

Most, if not all of us have a plan for our lives, but things do not always go according to that plan. We face detours or worse, having to reimagine that life all together. We aren’t always ready for these changes, and it can leave us feeling alone, depressed, anxious, stuck, unmotivated, or even scared. I use an integrative approach that utilizes psychoeducation and mindfulness in a safe and open space to help you feel heard, supported, and empowered to re-envision the plan you had for yourself.

Hello! My name is Grace Hicks and I received my masters in Professional Counseling from Northwestern University. My therapeutic approach is person-centered, strengths-based, and psychodynamic at its core. In other words, I do my very best to create a safe, comfortable, and personalized space to dig deep and gain personal insight (ie exploring history, relationship patterns, defense mechanisms, etc) while also making daily life easier (ie gaining coping strategies, self care techniques, etc). My approach is also trauma-informed, allowing for a secure environment to navigate big T and little t traumas.

Many of us are not taught to prioritize mental health and end up unsure of what to do when faced with difficult feelings. Therapy does not need to be scary or intimidating. My style is warm and deeply collaborative. Together, we will set goals, continually make sure we're moving in the right direction, and maybe even have a laugh or two along the way. I am a lifelong learner. In therapy, I draw upon the latest neurobiology research to help you understand how what's going on in your brain and nervous system can affect your mood and behavior.

On the outside you have it together, but on the inside you’re overthinking, feeling anxious and disconnected. Being a perfectionist has helped you succeed academically or in your career. People have admired you for being helpful, independent and driven. Yet, underneath the pristine surface you’ve managed to keep intact over the years, you feel disconnected, worried and insecure. We'll identify the "whys", practical strategies to help you manage day-to-day, and move towards the deeper work to create long-lasting peace, balance and meaning. Through the process, you will develop a healthier relationship with yourself and others.

On the outside things are fine, but on the inside you feel overwhelmed and disconnected. Being a perfectionist has helped you in a lot of areas...you've experienced successes, but you desire more meaning and peace in your life. I will serve as a compassionate guide, helping you feel understood and guided in this process. I will help you discover practical strategies as well as the deeper "whys" to your feelings and thoughts, including the self-criticism. While not all clients choose to incorporate spirituality, for those who do, I can also incorporate faith-based perspectives in alignment with clients' values, stage and needs.
