My name is Gianne. I am from Chicago and have lived here all my life. As far back as I can remember I have had a desire to help others in finding their happiness, getting through many of life’s struggles and achieving their goals
I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor at CFC Therapy Group part-time. My passion in the field of mental health began back in 2012 when I took my first psychology class at Harold Washington College before finishing my Associate’s degree. After finishing my associate’s degree, I pursued my bachelor’s degree in Psychology at National Louis University and then I received a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from National Louis in 2018. While in graduate school, I became educated on the subject matter(s) in the field of mental health from various counseling theories, group counseling techniques, substance abuse, crisis intervention, career counseling, anxiety, depression, PTSD, self-care & wellness, and more.
During my last year of graduate school, I completed my clinical internship at Journeycare where I was a grief counseling intern. Through inpatient and outpatient treatment centers I have worked with clients who are struggling with complicated grief and loss. I also have experience in working with clients who are dealing with anxiety, depression, communication, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorders, unresolved childhood trauma, career counseling, and personal growth & development. In October 2020, I completed training and became credentialed as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). Becoming a CCTP has given me many greater insights into how to effectively utilize techniques/strategies to treat PTSD and other forms of trauma-related experiences.
I have always been genuinely interested in the way our emotions, thoughts, and feelings connect us to our own personal realities. Merging my innate ability to help others with my education in the field of mental health, I feel confident that I have and will continue to be able to reach many clients in attaining their goals in therapy. I would love the opportunity to help you with any struggles or challenges you are currently facing as well as any goals you want to attain in your life.
