Therapist Chicago Baran.png

Anastasia Baran, LCSW

Therapist

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My clinical practice includes treating adolescents and adults.  My specialties include working with individuals with Anxiety, Depression, Mood disorders, Life Transitions, as well as Grief and Loss.  I utilize different evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Strength Based Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy.

Together we will look at what is causing distress and work to develop insight into the patterns that contribute to your difficulties. By building a strong and honest relationship in session, I will help you to achieve your goals outside of therapy and in your daily life.  I will take into account each facet of your life to help you find different coping skills that best fit in your lifestyle.

Eleanor Wolfe, LCSW, CADC

Therapist

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker/Certified Addictions Counselor who offers interactive, action-oriented therapy with a personalized approach for each individual.  I meet with emerging adults, adults, families, and seniors who struggle with mood disorders, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, infertility, trauma, grief, life transitions, and self-esteem issues. My belief is that the core of the mental health profession is to relieve the suffering and heartbreak of people trying to cope with the most difficult moments of their lives. Finding success in healing that pain can lead to hope and strength.

 

Through the healing power of the therapeutic relationship, individuals can learn to explore meaningful connections in their lives and strengthen the connection to the self.  As a witness and a guide, I am at your side to navigate the difficult and the uncertain with confidence and courage.  For the past 17 years, I have integrated a variety of tools (psychodynamic theory, CBT, ACT, DBT, solution-based theory and evidence-based intervention).  Most importantly, I provide you with a safe space to feel heard while challenging you to sort out and defeat obstacles that have kept you from living the life you want. Together, we will build on your strengths to attain health and resilience you deserve.
