In life, people look for answers and I believe the answers lie within each of us. I strive to help individuals make their thoughts and goals clearer so that individuals can find answers during times of heavy clouds and dark skies. Through processing, learning effective tools, and techniques to manage high stress and anxiety, I work with my clients to get them to a more comprehensive sense of self. That self they have always dreamed of being and that self they, unconsciously, already are. In doing so, processing the past and the present to develop how my clients want their future to look will be a journey of healing and finding balance. 

 

I work from an integrative approach primarily utilizing Psychoanalytic/Psychodynamic interventions with Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavioral theories. I am extensively trained in Psychoanalytic/Psychodynamic and Dialectical Behavioral therapies. I strive to help individuals identify patterns in current relationships and behaviors that stem from past experiences, both from past attachment, as well as environmentally learned. I take a collaborative approach through processing, learning effective tools, and applying techniques to manage high stress and anxiety. I have experience working with adults struggling with depression, anxiety, mood difficulties, trauma-related concerns, self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, phase of life adjustments, personality disorders, identity and LGBTQIA+ related concerns.  

 

I earned my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Adler University in Chicago, IL and my master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Chicago, IL. I have worked in private practices, intensive outpatient programs and college counseling settings as I enjoy working with young adults, middle-aged adults, individually, couples and in group therapy.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is paramount in fostering change. It is through an open, nonjudgmental, and safe environment that clients can explore and grow into their most authentic selves and lead more fulfilling lives. My approach emphasizes how our past and present experiences shape how we relate to others and the world around us. I work with children, adolescents, and adults, and utilize an integrative and collaborative approach that incorporates aspects of Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Feminist, Relational, and Strengths-Based approaches.

I am an LGBTQ+ affirming and sex positive therapist who welcomes clients who are part of the kink and poly/consensual non-monogamy communities. I received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Central Florida and a Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.

I have experience in multiple settings including substance abuse facilities, community mental health centers, and therapeutic day schools working with concerns such as anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma, developmental disorders, impulse control, and relationship struggles.

Finding balance in this unpredictable world can sometimes seem unachievable. Together, we can find a balance that best fits you. My goal for therapy is teaching you the skills needed to find your balance so you can flourish in your daily life. Whatever your journey has been, I will help you implement knowledge and tools to overcome barriers from the past, present, and future. I am here to listen from a neutral perspective with expertise in psychological health and the influence it can have on the rest of our biological system. My clinical skills reflect all ages across the lifespan as I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and older adults. With this, I am flexible in aiding in treatment among various cohorts and in a multitude of settings. 

 

Through my training in health service psychology at Kansas City University, I was able to work closely with medical students in training to become knowledgeable in the process of collaborative care. I am willing to work with you and any of your providers to ensure advocacy for your comprehensive wellbeing. You will not feel alone or unheard throughout our treatment together as I will work collaboratively with you to ensure the best care.

 

 The evidence-based treatments I commonly use in practice include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), solution-focused therapy (SFT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and cognitive processing therapy (CPT).  I am well versed in neurocognitive deficit interventions, mood disturbances, substance use interventions, and trauma processing. Additionally, I have done extensive research in women’s health issues including PMDD, postpartum depression and anxiety, and other menstrual conditions.

Santina Bianco、LPC

セラピスト

アドラー大学は、社会正義と地域社会の関与に重点を置いているため、私にとって重要でした。私はもともと小さな町から来たので、シカゴのコミュニティの一員であることが私の目を開いてくれました。大きな池で小さな魚になることで、カウンセラーとして成長するのに役立ったと感じる機会と経験を得ることができました。  

 

私はシカゴ公立学校、少年収容センター、危機管理センターなどの住宅環境での治療経験を積んでいます。私の情熱は、多様性を促進しながら、子供、青年、若年成人と協力することです。私は個人、グループ、家族療法を提供しています。私の経験は、うつ病、不安、行動障害、反抗挑戦性障害、注意欠陥多動性障害(ADHD)、適応障害、怒りなど、さまざまなメンタルヘルスの懸念を治療することで構成されています。

 

私のアプローチは、クライアント中心の治療、認知行動療法、弁証法的行動療法、アドレリアン療法などの証拠に基づく実践を組み合わせて統合されています。私の専門分野は、遊戯療法の使用です。遊戯療法は、主に個人が遊びを使って感情や考えを自由に表現できるようにするために使用される心理療法的アプローチです。治療的遊びは、コミュニケーションを異なる方法で表現する人々との学問的、行動的、社会的、または感情的な問題を抱える個人を助けるための方法です。口頭でのコミュニケーションは私たち全員のためではなく、威圧的になる可能性があります。私はアクティブなことや楽しいことをしながら誰かと知り合うことを好みます。

 

私の情熱は、クライアントの強みを生かして自立を促進することにより、クライアントが最大限の可能性を発揮できるよう支援することです。私のセラピーのスタイルは、クライアントが現在いる場所でクライアントに会うことです。 私の目標は、自分らしくいることを受け入れられていると感じることができる、ユニークで本格的なカウンセリング体験を提供することです。私は、治療的関係の成長を促進するための信頼を築くのに役立つ、安全で協調的なスペースを提供することを目指しています。

私たちは皆、私たちの内面の素晴らしさを生み出す独特の生来の強みを持っています。しかし、日々の混沌とした生活に没頭していると、これらの資質を育むスキルを忘れたり、不足したりすることがあります。これらの資質を認識し、発展させることによって、私たちは認識し、「私たちの素晴らしいものを所有する」ようになります。 一緒に、私たちはあなたの可能性を最大限に引き出すためにあなたの旅の最初の一歩を踏み出します。私たちは、人生を変える変化と永続的な結果を生み出す実践を開発しながら、あなたが行き詰まっている領域を特定して取り組み、あなたの価値観との整合性を高めます。  

 

私は免許を持った専門のカウンセラーです。シカゴのデポール大学で臨床メンタルヘルスカウンセリングの教育修士号を取得しました。私のキャリアを通して、私は外来治療と収容療法プログラムのポジションを歴任してきました。私は、青年や10代、成人、慢性的な精神的健康や身体的健康の問題を抱える個人など、さまざまな人口や年齢の人々と協力してきました。私は、強みに基づいた、人を中心とした、精神力動のテクニックの統合的なアプローチを使用しています。 私は、治療的同盟の重要性を強く信じており、クライアントは安全でサポートされていると感じるべきです。各セッションでは、あなたの個人的なニーズと目標を達成するために、あなたの治療について協力します。

Psychotherapist

I believe we’re naturally good and unfortunately taught to feel shame, worthlessness, inadequacy, and the ideas of “bad” and “wrong”. I’m dedicated to providing a non-judgmental environment to support clients, explore their situations, and achieve their goals. I strive to hear and understand your feelings, past and current experiences, as well as to provide information and new coping strategies to help you deal with your concerns, difficulties, and struggles. We will sort out what’s going on in your life and sort it out together.

 

I received my Master’ degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Adler University. I have received training  in CBT, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and personality disorders treatment and management. It is my goal to keep enlarging my toolbox in order to provide more efficient and effective support to my clients.

 

The differences between cultures, languages, and environments may cause frustration or even conflict, and having new information and ways to handle them will create fresh insights and help you accomplish your goals. I hope after every session my client feel more confident, having healthier boundaries, and enjoy their lives more.

I offer therapy to individuals, couples, and families in English, Mandarin, and Japanese.

Nicole Yan

Nicole Yan, LSW

Psychotherapist

My approach to therapy is based on mutual appreciation. Through openness and
acceptance, we can work together on personal issues and emotional situations
you face. I support individuals in learning to heal their own suffering through
discovery of the gentleness, warmth, wisdom, and compassion that is an innate
capacity of all human beings. I enjoy working with people on their journeys and
helping them to nurture their inner and outer worlds with kindness and
awareness.


My practice is informed by cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic
techniques, client-centered approach, as well as mindfulness, self-compassion,
and Buddhist psychology. My clinical experience includes a wide range of
concerns, including depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, spirituality, relationships,
substance abuse, and gender identity.


I received my graduate degrees, a Master of Social Work and a Master of
Divinity, from the University of Chicago. I have also worked as a hospital chaplain
and am familiar with contemplative practices in patient care. For several years
now, I have facilitated a weekly meditation group as a way to promote growth and
healing in our community. I am fluent in both English and Chinese.
