Therapist in Chicago, Illinois Ekaterina “Kate” Charland,  LCPC

Ekaterina “Kate” Charland, LCPC

My name is Kate and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor who has been practicing since 2020. My pronouns are she/her/hers. I have a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Bradley University and am looking to pursue my doctorate in Developmental Psychology in the future. I primarily with clients ages 6-17 and am passionate about being able to be there for this population to help them navigate the ups and downs of these years. I also work with clients ages 17+ who are experiencing challenges in all areas of their lives. As a therapist, I will provide a safe and empathetic therapeutic space. I meet clients where they are at – whether that be open to therapy or hesitant of the process. I believe that therapy looks different for every individual – everyone is unique. This belief fuels my person-centered, strengths-based, and multicultural approach. The therapeutic alliance is incredibly important to me – I want to collaborate and empower my clients. I strive to create a non-judgmental and open environment for every client. I utilize CBT, DBT, ACT, narrative therapy, and motivational interviewing – I find it important to use a multitude of therapies and approaches as every client will be different. I work extensively with those experiencing anxiety, grief, depression, LGBTQ+ issues, challenges in relationships, eating disorders, ADHD, and major life changes. When I’m not at work, I play ice hockey in an adult recreational league, spend time with my friends and family, and am always trying out new recipes to cook. I’m an avid reader and writer, a movie nerd, and lover of all things horror. I’m always ready with a book or movie recommendation!
