Therapist in Elmhurst, Illinois Tahjae Handy, LPC

Tahjae Handy, LPC

Tahjae Handy is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Illinois. To Tahjae, therapy is much more than just listening to a client discuss their issues. She believes the true meaning of therapy is creating an effective, working relationship where they are constantly striving towards being the very best version of themselves. Sometimes people get stuck in a rut and need assistance with this, and that is what Tahjae is here for. Everyone has the right to live a full and meaningful life, and she is here to assist them wherever they may be on their journey. Tahjae’s approach to therapy is culturally competent and person-centered, where she allows the client to be the expert and leader of their therapeutic experience.

Tahjae approaches each session with empathy, congruence, and unconditional positive regard for her client, meaning that she is always genuinely herself and creates space for nonjudgmental conversations. Tahjae’s job is to offer you a safe, judgment-free space to come and share all you need, while providing tools and assistance to help achieve your treatment goals and an overall high quality of life! Outside of work, Tahjae enjoys reading, coloring/painting, designing nails, volleyball, cooking, and spending time with family.
