Therapist in Western Springs, Illinois, Cory Grad, LCSW

Cory Grad, LCSW

Cory Grad is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois. He has a Bachelor of Arts in English from Loyola University and a Master of Social Work from Aurora University.

Cory believes the mind can be a paradise or a prison, depending on the direction we steer it. He feels the meeting between client and therapist is a sacred time in which both parties work collaboratively to help the client heal, learn, and grow. By the time treatment concludes, the client is not “fixed” but rather, returning to the flow of life.

In his spare time, Cory enjoys exercise (both team and individual), chess, meditation, studying philosophy, cooking, and leading development workshops.
