Casey is a Licensed Professional Counselor, and received her masters in counseling from National Louis University. She uses an eclectic, holistic approach incorporating both psychodynamic and body centered therapies. As a Level One Sensorimotor Psychotherapy practitioner, she works with the body to reduce somatic symptoms, promote emotion regulation, and process traumatic memories. She also uses DBT skills to empower clients to feel a greater sense of agency in their journey. She has worked as a medical advocate for sexual assault survivors, as well as with diverse populations including homeless and disabled young adults. She works predominately with teens and adults, and also as a group facilitator. While she has clinical training working with depression, anxiety, bipolar, and personality disorders, her primary focus is on helping clients connect with their bodies and form a deeper connection and understanding of themselves to promote healing.
I strongly believe in every individual's ability to bring about meaningful changes through self-awareness. A trusting relationship between a client and therapist offers a safe space to reflect on our experiences, our histories that we carry with us, and the way in which these histories impact our present experiences. I understand that every client's personal journey is unique; therefore, my approach is tailored to fit the specific needs of each client. I support my clients to set and achieve their personal goals in a safe and comfortable environment. I am deeply passionate to be a partner on the healing journey for those who have experienced traumatic events both big or small. My own journey working with survivors inspired me to develop a treatment model with comprehensive resources to help individuals not nearly survive day to day, but to reconnect with themselves, so they can thrive. I believe that the body holds great wisdom, and I work collaboratively with clients to discover their keys to access it. My hope is facilitate a greater sense of body integration for those who feel as if their body has betrayed them or seek relief from impact of somatic symptoms and traumatic aftershocks.
