Therapist in Schaumburg, Illinois, Zainab Lee, LSW

Zainab Lee, LSW

My therapy style is distinguished by a famous quote of President Roosevelt: People don’t care what you know until they know you care about them. This means that I take a very personal (empathic) approach towards therapeutic interventions that best meets the client where they are at and look to guide that client towards meeting treatment goals they want to see changed in their personal lives. There is no one-size fits all treatment modality. Each person is unique and comes from a unique background, and treatment must meet this background with an individualized plan specific to that special person. I believe in a holistic therapeutic style treating individuals from three (3) dynamics: mental, physical, and spiritual. As an experienced SUD therapist, I have found that psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is helpful for those living with substance abuse disorders. These treatment approaches can reinforce motivation to remain sober while also targeting any underlying mental health issues, including anxiety and depression. Furthermore, learning stress-coping skills and how to work through relationship problems also benefits individuals with substance abuse disorders.

I am a licensed social worker living in an Illinois suburb with my close-knit family, beloved friends and thriving community. I am a published children’s book author of Sun Takes a Holiday with three new books coming out at the end of 2022. I love learning and have a keen thirst for knowledge of all types and from all disciplines, which is how I lead my life full of amazement in each day and the miracle from every moment. My spare time is spent enjoying theatre, music, museums, bowling, the liberal arts and sciences from all walks of life and from every species of life; and, enjoying an abundance of laughter while displaying an equal amount of kindness.
