Karen Chia, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Chicago
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience in working with children, adolescents, and adults navigating stressful life events, trauma, relational and parenting issues. My style is relational and I seek to partner with clients to approach issues from a strengths' perspective. Through therapy, I work towards empowerment to find ways to cope with challenges, instill hope, and strive towards healing. I am passionate about working with clients from diverse and international backgrounds. In addition, I recognize the importance of one's spirituality and enjoy the integration of this area in therapy.
I will collaborate with you to gain insight, self-acceptance, and guide you with helpful tools towards change. Please contact me today for a free phone consultation. I am happy to answer your questions and to determine if we are a good fit.
