Mark Petroelje, MA, LCPC, Counselor in Chicago
My approach is warm, collaborative, and insight-oriented, as well as highly attuned to the effects of trauma, stigma, and shame. I focus on providing a therapeutic environment of acceptance and affirmation, promoting an authentic expression of self, and facilitating emotional healing. I believe in helping clients understand how past experiences impact their current behaviors and relationships, and we will utilize the therapeutic relationship to foster self-awareness and interpersonal skills.
Because I view the therapeutic relationship as a collaborative process, we work together to identify aspects of your life that you want to be different. I believe that 'change' is often motivated by intrinsic values, which guide us to discover or clarify what is important and meaningful.
I provide psychotherapy to individuals and couples from diverse cultural backgrounds and with a wide variety of concerns, such as depression, anxiety, trauma recovery, compulsive behaviors, relationship functioning, family dynamics, body image, sexual and gender identity, and medical issues.
