I have an extensive background working with survivors of sexual assault and intimate partner violence , as well as their families.
Prioritizing mental health, now more than ever, is paramount to leading a healthy and fulfilling life. The personal and systemic traumas we encounter can lead to increased anxiety, isolation, depressive symptoms, and physical ailments. You are not alone! I have vast experience working in integrated health and understanding how stress and trauma impact us physically. I also recognize the secondary trauma that can arise from dealing with the systems meant to help us. I specialize in trauma-informed therapy and am EMDR trained. Creating a non-judgmental, safe, and reliable space is my number one priority.

I understand that each client comes with their own history and abilities. I do not believe there is any set treatment plan for everyone and work to individualize each person's treatment. I understand that each person will experience their history, events, and self care differently.

Are you struggling with communication in your relationship or marriage and just need someone to help get things back on track? Or maybe you are considering getting married and need some additional support through this process. We are here to help. Sometimes our friends want to help but they are not equipped to give us a neutral perspective on our relationship. Seeking professional help can be a scary thing, but it may be exactly what you need for your relationship.

What if I told you that there was a way to heal some of those hurts just by giving yourself the space to talk about them out loud with a trained professional? My name is Gabby Mitchell, and I am a licensed clinical social worker who works with people whose lives have been negatively impacted by trauma, violence , sudden loss, and systemic oppression.
Do you ever feel as though no matter what you do, you just aren’t truly happy? You've been through hell and back, but still can’t seem to escape your past experiences. Or perhaps you experienced something really scary and messed up which continues to impact your ability to make it through the day. Maybe you're the one taking care of others, but never have time for yourself. Your friends may describe you as uptight, paranoid, and irritable, and sometimes you secretly may agree. You know that you could be nicer, or calmer, or give people the benefit of a doubt, but you are simply too stressed to handle it all.

I am also aware of how oppression and community violence can affect our lives as I have worked for many years with the homeless population in Chicago.
I believe that my role as a counselor is to help others become congruent to their truth and find their own path. I focus on client strengths, and create a safe and supportive environment for insight and transformation to occur. I see myself as an empathic and intuitive listener, as well as a direct communicator. I can tell it as I see it, with tact and humor but I am also gentle and sensible. I find creative ways to challenge the barriers clients may encounter in their life journey. I believe in personal responsibility, and I see the counseling process as an active and collaborative one. I truly believe in a mind body connection.

Some presenting concerns that I often work with in therapy include complex trauma, anxiety, depression, bicultural identity, systemic/religious abuse , sexuality, emotional awareness, relationship issues, family dynamics and developmental trauma.
"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." - Maya Angelou. Have you ever found yourself stuck within stressful relationships, triggering environments or confusing emotions? That "stuck" feeling can often lead to stagnation in our day to day lives, and uncertainty about the future. I address these struggles by utilizing a holistic, trauma-informed approach, which incorporates body-oriented, anti-oppression and harm reduction practices. These strategies allow me to focus on the strengths already within each client, while also uncovering past wounds that might be limiting growth.
