Wendi Lev, LCSW, ACSW, CADC, LCSW, ACSW, CADC, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Chicago
Turn fear into empowerment, despair into hope and attain the understanding and skills which will allow you to thrive. Life can be demanding, leaving you feeling stuck, out of control and behaving in ways that are self-destructive. I aim to assist you in attaining a sense of optimism and adopting effective thought patterns and habits based on values which increase self control, motivation and resilience. Of upmost importance is the relationship I will hopefully share with you, and collaboratively we can formulate a plan utilizing scientifically proven techniques based on your unique situation.
I have years of experience working with ethnically, racially and culturally diverse individuals and couples in both in-patient and out-patient settings. My areas of expertise include: substance abuse/addictive behaviors, life transitions, male issues, sexual issues, self-esteem, distorted body image, depression, anxiety and couples/relational issues.
It would be my privilege to help anyone experiencing any sort of distress. I will always go the extra mile or 100 miles for a client. Understanding your busy schedule I offer evening and weekend appointments in addition to regular business hours.
