Shedeh Tavakoli, PhD, LCPC, CCMHC, CRC, Counselor in Chicago
I have a passion to help people on the healing journey from experiences of trauma and abuse by providing a safe, nonjudgmental and calming space to talk through and process their pain. In our sessions, I partner with you to identify specific issues and triggers, relationship concerns and past experiences that may have contributed to current difficulties with interpersonal relationships, anxiety or depression. This is a collaborative relationship where we align our goals, focus on strengths, and utilize all available resources. Together we can increase your insight regarding challenges you face in life and relationships.
I view counseling and psychotherapy through an integrative, interpersonal, and wellness model, that focuses on the whole person: the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. This integrative approach informs my work with individuals, couples, and families.
If you are ready to explore new possibilities and begin working towards a more meaningful and enjoyable life, call me to set up an appointment. During our free-of-charge phone consultation, we can discuss your needs and you will have the opportunity to ask more questions.
