Life is full of vulnerabilities and stressors that we sometimes think we must overcome ourselves. My beliefs mirror Erik Erikson’s quote, “Life doesn’t make any sense without interdependence. We need each other, and the sooner we learn that, the better for us all.”  Emphasis on togetherness and collaboration within life and in therapy is a must.  My goal is to engage with you in the difficult, vulnerable, and stressful aspects of life in a warm and empathetic manner while guiding you towards personal growth and fulfillment.

I received my Masters of Arts in Counseling with a Specialization in Forensic Psychology from Adler University. My experience has allowed me to work with individuals as they triumph through their own challenges, such as anxiety, depression, relationships, trauma, and life transitions.  I incorporate a strength-based, collaborative approach that acknowledges your ability to conquer these challenges alongside the structure and support of our therapeutic alliance. Due to the unique nature of everyone’s therapeutic needs, I bring fluidity into interventions but often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Positive Psychology.

I look forward to our journey together! To schedule an appointment with Nicole, please use this link:  https://forms.gle/gdryZPAiRmY4RZf16

“…rarely can a response make something better. What makes something better is connection.” I have always been moved by these words from Brene Brown, PhD, LMSW.

We often seek therapy yearning for connection and understanding. My goal is to provide a safe space where we can work together as a team to help you process your experiences, validate the emotions attached to these experiences, and discover your own strengths and capacity for coping through life’s challenges. We as humans are inherently resilient even when things like shame, trauma, isolation, addiction, depression, and anxiety try to disconnect us from ourselves and others. We will work together to find compassion for yourself in restoring this connection.

My clinical work is informed by evidence-based interventions including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), solution-focused therapy, and motivational interviewing. I also focus my work with clients from a humanistic, strengths-based, and person-centered approach. As a social worker, I am also keenly aware that we are impacted by our environments such as school, work, and home but also our community, culture, and society at large.

I have a Masters in Social Work from The Catholic University of America, a certification in drug and alcohol counseling from Loyola University Chicago, and am a licensed social worker in the state of Illinois. I have experience in individual and group settings helping clients navigate through anxiety, depression, substance use, relationship issues, shame, self-esteem, life transitions, domestic violence, suicidal ideation, and self-harm. I also have over 10 years of experience as a patient advocate for individuals and families living with bleeding disorders and understand the complexities of navigating life with a chronic health condition.

I look forward to walking beside you in this journey of discovering your own resiliency, strength, and self-compassion.

Therapist / EMDR Trained

Locations:

I believe it was Kermit the Frog who put it best, “It’s not easy being green.”  But what do we do with our pain? How do we continue to take care of others and grow more fully into our own potential?

I’m a Strength Coach and a Holistic Coach.  That means I have an integrated approach and I care about your nutrition, fitness, relationships, career, mind, body, and spirit.

I’m an Individual, Couples, Marriage, and Family Therapist.  That means I know how to listen deeply to what’s most important to you.     I won’t be just talking at you or mechanically smiling and nodding with intermittent outbursts of cheerleading.

I used to think that time was our most valuable commodity.  The culmination of lessons I’ve learned with the youth and families I’ve served in over a decade of teaching, counseling, coaching, and care coordination have shown me that time is a blessing, but attention is our most valuable commodity.  Just like a muscle, growth and productive change in any facet of life requires intentional work.  I’m here to help structure that process with you so you can put your attention where it needs to be.

I offer a principled approach in 3 fundamental elements:

Autonomy and Ownership:  This is your sense of purpose and choice throughout.

Competence and Mastery:  Achieving therapeutic goals can feel nebulous.  I’m in your corner to help you consume less noise and generate more clarity, skills, and knowledge.

Connection:  You are not alone.  I am your ally, your Agent of Good Will!  I aim to support you as you establish and nourish the relationships that are most important to you.

As a Therapist and Strength Coach, barbells, kettlebells, relationships, and the most intimate matters of the heart are the tools of my trade.  When used properly, they all promote growth.  I do my best work not because I am awesome, but because IT is awesome.

It’s an honor to serve the community I grew up in.  It’s an honor to support your growth.

Listen.  Trust.  Try.  Grow.  Repeat!

Finding a safe-space to feel heard can often feel challenging and overwhelming.  We each have our own unique experiences and goals, and I believe in providing a welcoming space for self-exploration.

I believe that empathy, compassion, humor, understanding, and validation helps to establish meaningful relationships with clients.

I graduated from Loyola University of Chicago with my Masters of Social Work and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Illinois.  My experience ranges from working in community mental health to working with clients dealing with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life changes, mood disorder related symptoms, and substance use related issues.

Danna Herbach, LCPC

Therapist

Locations:

Our identities are one of the most important aspects of our personalities. The essence of who we are, how we exist in the world, and how we pursue our values creates an inner knowledge of self. Counseling can involve identifying, exploring, and utilizing these ideas to encourage clarity.

There are times in our lives when it is important to seek help for issues that we are working through. My goal as a therapist is to provide space, insight, and opportunities for growth. As a trained art therapist, I love to utilize the creation and exploration of art in my counseling sessions. Art is a technique that can be employed throughout the entire therapeutic process to provide insight, help work through material, and encourage healing. It is truly amazing what can be expressed and revealed through art.

I have a master’s degree in Art Therapy and Counseling from Southwestern College in Santa Fe, New Mexico. My approach to therapy begins with unconditional positive regard and stems into several branches of therapy, including solution focused, acceptance and commitment, and person-centered. I have experience in working with those who are chronically mentally ill, as well as those dealing with life stressors such as relationships, jobs, school and family. I specialize in talk and art therapy with adolescents and those who identify as a part of the LGBTQIA+ community. Our identity is paramount to how we relate to the world, and I want to be able to support others in their own search for identity and self-awareness.

Sinda Rosenberg, LCSW

My life’s journey has allowed me to gain knowledge and experience in so many areas.  I wanted to be able to share my knowledge and interpersonal skills with others on a deeper level so I decided to get my Master’s Degree and became a therapist.  I enjoy working with all types of issues.  I work with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, teen issues, empty nest syndrome, post-partum, divorce, mid-life changes, just to name a few.

I am also a grief counselor.  Grief can take many forms.  It can be due to the loss of a loved one, but grief also can follow from the loss of a job, a divorce, the loss of a home, a pet or a child coming of age and moving on in their life. One aspect that always follows is the need to help the grieving individual rediscover a positive future; the need to help that person redefine who she or he might become in the wake of their loss. The experience of seeing someone shed that weight of grief and loss – to see them walk back into their world feeling lighter, freer and once again excited to pursue their own personal journey – was my core motivation for becoming a social worker.

Throughout life personal experiences become personal stories. We give these stories meaning: they help to shape our personal identity, they affect how we feel about ourselves and they focus our perspective on the future.  I work within the framework of narrative therapy to harness the power of these stories to help my clients rediscover a positive narrative and to give their life new purpose.

I received my MSW from Loyola University-Chicago and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.  Following graduation I pursued a fellowship with Rainbow Hospice & Palliative Care in their Grief and Bereavement group.  While studying at Loyola I worked at a home for at-risk teen youth in a disadvantaged neighborhood; I continue to volunteer as a grief counselor for non-profit organizations in one of Chicago’s under-served communities.

To say that change is difficult is an understatement. Sudden changes in life can leave us reeling with losses, or struggling to find ways to cope. At the same time, it can feel painful to approach change due to barriers such as shame, guilt, resentment, and fear. In the counseling relationship, I strive to create an environment of compassion and trust – in which clients can work through these difficult emotions while knowing they are supported and heard. My role is to walk alongside the client, centering their unique journey, while helping empower them to achieve their goals.

My therapeutic approach is humanistic, strength-based, and trauma-informed. I strive to tailor my approach to each client’s individual needs, using Person-Centered Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Attachment-Based Psychotherapy, and Internal Family Systems Therapy as foundational modalities. I have worked with adults in individual and group settings to treat depression, anxiety, PTSD / C-PTSD, personality disorders, domestic violence, and relationship health concerns.

I received my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northeastern Illinois University.  I also work with trauma-informed healthcare and LGBTQIA+ healthcare.  I look forward to working with you on your wellness journey!”

Our journey towards personal growth can be challenging and sometimes overwhelming to manage on our own. We all have our “stuff” that we work through but often need guidance and support to achieve the growth that we need. It is my honor to walk this growth journey with you, utilizing evidence-based modalities to provide the tools needed to progress on your journey. 

I have engaged in therapeutic work in a variety of settings, including trauma, grief, domestic violence, substance use, anxiety, and depression. This work assisted in my development of an eclectic approach, focused on tailoring treatment to meet each person’s unique needs and incorporating modalities such as mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychoeducation and body work therapies such as yoga, breathwork, walk and talk therapy, and Trauma Release Exercises (TRE). 

I have a Master’s in Social Work from Loyola University Chicago and am a Certified Yoga Instructor. I’ve sought out additional training and certifications in groupwork, substance use, and the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics to better formulate an understanding of the critical components impacting one’s current emotional experience as well as individually tailor each treatment. I also have a strong appreciation of therapeutic gardening and its benefits for reducing common anxiety and depressive symptoms.

I feel we have the ability to grow and unlock our full potential if we allow ourselves to invest the time and energy necessary – at Couch Clarity we help you do just that!
