Anna Czerniak

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Illinois with over 15 years of experience working as an advocate and therapist. I have worked in a range of areas including foster care, domestic violence & sexual assault, corrections (with both juveniles and adults), parent coaching, and community mental health. I have provided therapy to adolescents and adults for Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Grief, and Bipolar Disorder. I have also provided coaching to parents who have children with ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, and Behavior Concerns.

My counseling style is open, accepting, and solution focused. I use a variety of techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. I believe in meeting individuals where they are and taking a holistic approach to address your unique needs. I am a therapist who is caring, non-judgmental, honest, and direct.

If you are ready to better understand your behaviors (or the behaviors of your child) and build skills to improve your well-being and happiness, I am here to support you. I am open to engaging with you in whatever manner you feel comfortable (e.g. phone, video, and/or messaging). I am typically available mornings, evenings, and weekends.

Anna gives me hope. She provides me with solutions to my problems. I feel supported and not alone. Parenting is tough and I feel confidence Anna will be able to help guide me through it.
