Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor
Kate Stevens, MA, LCPC
I am a client-centered clinician that focuses my work on children, adolescents and young adults. I have worked with clients in a variety of settings, including a community mental health center, private practice, and an emergency shelter for survivors of domestic violence. I have a strong passion for the intersection of mental health and community advocacy.
Throughout my career, I have supported children, teens and their families through a wide variety of life’s challenges. I specialize in anxiety, depression, LGBTQIA+ with a focus on gender identity and sexual orientation, trauma, and suicidal ideation/self-harming. I believe that for healing to transition outside of the walls of the therapy office, family members and other integrative members of the client’s family should have an active role in treatment and as such
will provide support to the whole family unit alongside the client.
I view therapy from the lens that each client is unique. I use an integrative approach to techniques and tools given to clients, focusing on using a client’s interests to help engage and create interactive experiences in growth. My warm, empathic and humorous approach to the healing process helps each client feel like they are walking the path towards success with a guide who can be there each step of the way. I work side by side with her clients to create achievable, positive goals to ensure that counseling is a space where clients can see a future full of hope for better days to come.
I received an undergraduate degree from North Central College in Naperville, IL and went on to pursue a Masters in Counseling Psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
