Ashley Blake, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Chicago
Life can be challenging, and there are times we need someone to help us work through those challenges. I take great fulfillment in being that someone. A licensed clinical social worker with 8 years providing counseling and psychotherapy to adults, adolescents and children, I help my clients tackle their obstacles, gain greater insight, and cultivate more joy. As your therapist, my top priority is providing you with a non-judgmental space for you to experience and express your feelings.
Clients come to me for a variety of reasons, but I specialize in depression, anxiety, grief/loss, trauma and PTSD. I work hard to see the world through your eyes so that I can help you strengthen your voice and find coping skills that are uniquely yours.
My clients are from a variety of racial, ethnic, and spiritual backgrounds, and I welcome all clients along the sexual and gender identity spectrum. With a background in theater, I take a particular interest in working with artists.
