Therapist in Chicago, Illinois GOSHA THORNTON, LSW


Many of us go through challenging times in life, and it’s completely normal to feel overwhelmed or stuck. I believe that everyone has the capacity for healing and growth, and I am honored to walk alongside with you on your journey toward mental, emotional, and relational well-being.

Throughout my career, I have worked with clients facing a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, grief, life transitions, and life-threatening health problems. I believe in tailoring a therapeutic approach to meet the unique needs of each individual, and I draw from diverse therapeutic techniques to best serve the needs of each client.

I work collaboratively with you, respecting your autonomy and your choices. This collaborative approach helps you to feel in control of your healing journey, and it creates a safe space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and choices without pressure, force, or fear of judgment. In therapy sessions, we work together to set achievable goals and develop personalized treatment plans that empower you to overcome challenges, achieve growth, and foster positive change.

I blend my academic training at the University of Chicago and other universities with a practical understanding of everyday life, gained from many years of experience in different jobs and life situations. I emigrated to this country as a young adult with no English, and I have firsthand knowledge of the challenges and difficulties that many of us face in life. I know that, by working together in a supportive and compassionate therapeutic environment, you can navigate your mental health challenges and achieve your personal goals.
