Courtney Thompson MSW, LSW, Psy.D. Candidate
Living in a city as big as Chicago offers many opportunities yet it can sometimes feel overwhelming, lonely, and even isolating. Are you hiding certain pieces of yourself from your friends or family to avoid conflict or to fit in? You might feel like no one knows the real you. You’ve noticed a shift in how you deal with stress. Maybe it’s coming out as increased drinking, binging or restricting food, or turning to other coping behaviors. Or maybe you’re in recovery but other parts of your life continue to feel unmanageable which feels frustrating.
You no longer need to feel trapped.
Change is possible and hope can be found. I became a therapist because I believe no one should stay feeling stuck, whether it’s in a relationship, family situation, substance abuse, or disordered eating. Through my own personal recovery process, I have learned that my experiences don’t define who I am today but are a page of a chapter out of my book of life. I have learned that true, deep healing is accessible. I am here to work with clients to show them that recovery is possible even when it feels impossible. You are no longer alone on your recovery journey – MBC is here.
I have a graduate degree from Dominican University Graduate School of Social Work and currently am in my fourth year as a Psy.D. student at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology. I am a Licensed Social Worker and have experience working with adolescents and adults with autism, ADHD, addiction, eating disorders, and codependency. At Mind Body Co-op, I also offer long-term process groups to further explore areas of support, resiliency, and boundaries and co-facilitate our DBT Skills Group.
