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.

Therapy is a truly unique journey. I believe in the power of the mind-body connection and seek to help clients understand how their experiences affect their whole system. Connecting with clients brings me joy and I strive to cater my skill set to meet your specific needs. Often, I invite creativity in to help you heal and grow into a more integrated version of yourself. Movement is a helpful tool to build more awareness, but I also recognize that moving and exploring creatively in a therapeutic setting can be challenging. My hope is to help you feel more at home in yourself while finding a soft landing to do the work.

I help adult individuals and couples through major life transitions for themselves, their relationships and their work. In therapy I help you understand what you are feeling, so you can come up with ways to better cope and problem-solve during challenging times, develop a stronger sense of identity, develop and exercise self-compassion, and develop insight into unhelpful patterns. In doing so, you can improve your psychological well-being, achieve your goals, and live a more fulfilling life. I believe you are the only expert in your own life, so my role is to help you discover the best way for you to navigate this transition.

I believe in the healing power of a therapeutic relationship where you can be the real you. No judgment or criticism here. Maybe you want to break free from unhealthy patterns, work through issues that have been swept under the rug, or find wholeness. Perhaps life isn't going quite the way you'd hoped or expected. Maybe you long to be secure in who you are and embrace all parts of yourself, to move away from self-criticism and toward self-compassion.

The basis of an ideal client in my lens does not have a select issue. Everyone has their own life challenges and emotional weight they carry with them. In the end, what I want for my clients is a common goal to be the best version of themselves they can be while being open-minded in facing tasks related to that goal. Whether it is an interpersonal relationship problem, anxiety, substance abuse, etc; the ultimate goal is to be better in comparison to yourself yesterday rather than someone else. That common ideal goal is what I aim for with every client I work with through the use of problem-solving strategies and coping mechanisms.

I believe that therapy is an opportunity for each individual to gain insight about themselves and their relationships, find purpose, and develop strategies for coping with life's challenges. My goal is to create an open and empathic space where you can feel understood and supported. I prioritize the therapeutic relationship itself as the primary tool for change. It can be healing to have a teammate in building positive changes and more positive self-talk.

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.

People seek out a counselor who can guide them--or their child--past their struggles to a better life. They want to get better sooner and stay better longer. For over 20 years, I have had the privilege of helping hundreds of adults, children and adolescents move past problems and achieve their goals --and to make those improvements stick. Some clients face coping with frustration, depression, anxiety, or relationship and family problems. For others, it's dealing with transitions such as divorce, loss and grief, school or relationship challenges, medical problems or job loss. And clients deserve great service.

I specialize in working with professionals who are experiencing distressing life events and may be struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, or relationship issues. Often clients come to me feeling lost or not knowing where to begin. I welcome clients as they are; offering genuine warmth and a judgment-free space to help them gain clarity and direction. With compassion and respect for my clients' stories, together we begin understanding emotions, restructuring unhelpful thinking patterns, identifying solutions, and establishing more positive lifestyle habits. Often one small change can set a series of bigger changes in motion.
