My Approach to Helping

My name is Elle Kirby, and I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in the Chicago area. I am passionate about working with adults and adolescents to help reduce stress, gain resilience, and improve quality of life in a holistic manner. I am also a certified yoga teacher and specialize in managing the mind-body connection. I provide an open approach in my practice, utilizing methods from multiple modalities to help regulate emotions, manage anxiety, and learn to cope with past trauma. I combine mindfulness techniques with different evidence-based modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, to help foster overall wellness.

We start where you are! Therapy can be an intimidating process to begin; I strive to create an open, warm, and inviting space to help strengthen the therapeutic relationship. With time, we can shift to a solution-based focus on goals. I offer an open approach within sessions, striving to create a warm and safe space to explore any presenting issues. I am also a certified yoga teacher, and specialize in managing the mind-body connection and overall holistic wellness, with options to incorporate physical movement in tandem with mindfulness exercises.
