Dara Jeffers, LCPC, Counselor in Chicago
I try to approach therapy with directness and a sense of humor. I have been described by clients as "down-to-earth" and "non-therapist-y." My experience includes working with clients in private practice who are motivated for therapy, as well as incarcerated individuals who are reluctant to participate. Both populations have taught me about the human condition - no one is immune to suffering and everyone has struggles, joys, and triumphs. We are all resilient and we are all deserving of happiness. My goal as a therapist is to help clients honor experiences and create the life they value.
I work with individuals and couples striving to improve themselves and their relationships. I offer support for those struggling with interpersonal connections, anxiety, and depression. I help clients understand healthy boundaries and identify personal values. I value being collaborative and empowering, using skills-based therapy like ACT and CBT.
