Therapist in Chicago, Illinois Faimmiah Menyongai, LSW

Faimmiah Menyongai, LSW

I understand the hesitation in starting the therapy process; it can be intimidating. I admire the bravery that you possess by embarking on this journey. I work with individuals to resolve complex traumas, anxiety, depression, & identity-based wounds. As an immigrant & former refugee, my life experiences have further taught me to navigate through the events of migration, & violence, & the traumas of displacement, and loss. Some of these personal experiences have sharpened my capacity to delicately highlight the consequences of trauma & grief on the clients that I worked with.

My experience is a merge of educational & professional training, as well as lived experiences. Psychoeducation is at the core of my practice. I approach clients from a mind-body perspective. I will utilize multiple therapeutic techniques in order to assist you in comprehending & redefining your story. Humor may also be incorporated into our sessions. My main goal is to help you access and rewrite your own story by raising your internal awareness. My goal is to give you a secure, and respectful space where we can jointly design an approach that best suits where you are. My role is to be an attentive guide and lead you to the best resources. – I welcome all in a cultural limbo to bring your identities, cultures, and rituals into our work together.
