She/Her/HersLicensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
Katie Czerniawski is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Chicago who specializes in depression, anxiety, mood disorders, life transitions, grief and loss, trauma, and relationships. Many of her clients are in their mid-20s, 30s, or 40s who are going through a major life transition, like starting college, entering the working world, changing careers, starting a family, or navigating aging through different stages of life. She also has extensive experience working with individuals who have had a significant loss in their life.
Katie utilizes an insight-oriented treatment approach that helps clients gain a better understanding of how their past experiences have shaped who they are today. Much of her treatment involves helping her clients mourn old ideas and/or old perceptions and explore new ways of thinking. She holds a deep understanding of the connection between anxiety and change. This perspective allows her to support clients through challenges that might otherwise be isolating.
Katie believes that everyone deserves to live a life that is full of meaning and purpose. She offers a safe, nonjudgmental space where clients can work through the changes and stress they are encountering, so they can leave feeling more empowered and ready to take on new challenges. She received her MSW from Loyola University and is a PhD candidate at The Institute for Clinical Social Work. Katie is able to connect with clients remotely across the state of Illinois for online therapy sessions.
