Get to Know Adam
Hello, my name is Adam. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor/Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the states of Illinois and Indiana. I believe strongly in a person’s ability to create themselves. Our world is what we make it. I enjoy working with people ready to make change work for them as they construct their desired lives. I want to be a partner in your efforts to live unhindered by anxiety, fear, shame, or sadness. I specialize in helping adults work through the challenges of anxiety, self-doubt, and relational discord.
How I Help
I bring a sense of lighthearted presence, engaging reflection, and dedication to the process of therapy. I believe that collaboration is extremely important to resolving long-standing patterns of thought/feeling/action that keep a person from living a liberated life. I continually strive to grow my ability to observe, free of judgement, throughout the process of working together. My approach provides a safe and supportive environment for growth. I recognize that each of us has our own struggles, strengths, and possibilities. I am excited to share my abilities as we clear a way forward on the path towards your fullest potential!
Areas of Focus
A bit about me
In my free time, I enjoy developing a deeper awareness of the world around me, often in the form of documentaries or various books on social concerns/human experience. I have a lifelong interest in understanding the effects of systemic racism and other systems of oppression. One effect of this has been my adoption of a vegan diet roughly 15 years ago. I enjoy cooking, growing plants (trying at least), and fermentation.
I have a passion for creation in many forms. For much of my life music was the main source of that creation, both playing and recording it. Over the course of time this has turned into a deep love of all things sewing! I enjoy learning to create my own clothes, primarily men’s shirts at the moment, as well as making objects such as bags or masks for friends and family. Always accompanied by a cup of oolong tea!
