My Approach to Helping
Hello, I'm Danica, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I am a strengths-based therapist based in Illinois with more than 10 years of experience working with a wide variety of clients and a wide variety of difficulties. I have a passion for patients experiencing a medical difficultydiagnosis, and for working with parents and caregivers of medically complex children and adults. I also LOVE working with young adults on improving relationships and professional trajectories. I have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of ages (literally from age 2-100+) and in a wide range of settings, from childcare to schools, acute crisis centers, and long-term care facilities.
My focus is on functional success. I love to help people identify their own specific goals and then achieve them. I love working with someone who is having difficulty functioning in an important area of life and helping them to reach success. As mentioned above, I use a strengths-based approach, and I'm a believer that our thoughts impact our lives to a strong degree, and I enjoy helping others to focus on strengths.
Seeking help is the first step in making positive changes, and I'm so thankful to have the opportunity to help you do this!
