Professional statement

Tara Genovese is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Chicago. She works mainly with individual adults ready to start on a new path in life. Many of Tara’s clients come in feeling like they have achieved a certain amount of success on paper, yet, at the same time, feel so far away from the lives that they actually want to live. Tara is particularly passionate about serving immigrant populations. She, also, has advanced training in working with anxiety-related issues.

Tara is trained in Mindfulness, CBT, and ACT approaches, which focuses on the intentionality behind our decision making and our actions. In the session, Tara focuses on trying to alleviate the symptoms you are experiencing while at the same time looking at root causes that may be preventing you from achieving your goals and further developing your relationships. This approach supports clients to acknowledge, create, and live the lifestyle that they have dreamed of for so long but never thought it could be real for them.

Tara’s style is goal-oriented, empathic, and will keep you to your commitments. When a client first comes in, the session will start where the client is at not only focusing on the problems that the client is experiencing but additionally focusing on how the client would rather experience life.

Tara’s practice is committed to working with BIPOC and immigrants folx with a focus on those with artistic and professional backgrounds.


Message to clients

The search for a therapist that "gets it" and checks off all the boxes on your list can be exhausting. It took you so long to gather up the courage to get to this point and now you're here. You want someone that believes that more than just luck brings you to success and that will understand that achievement can take years of sacrifice. You're finally at a place where you feel like you don't have to sacrifice as much and here comes the fork in the road: one that leads to personal fulfillment despite defying expectations versus the slow march of being the dutiful, generous loyal individual that is to expect nothing in return. It's ok to want something else than what is the norm. Let's talk about the life you would like to live, schedule a free 15-minute consultation now!
