I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Counselor in Illinois. I have been a social worker for over 12 years and have worked with individuals with a variety of concerns, including mood disorders, anxiety, OCD, addictions, chronic medical conditions, homelessness, financial difficulties, and relationship/boundary issues. I earned my Master of Social Work (MSW) degree and CADC certification from Loyola University Chicago in 2010. I love helping people, and I feel it is a gift to journey through triumphs and challenges with individuals I counsel.
I believe in meeting people where they are at and helping them to take small steps or huge leaps in the directions they’d like to go. I generally use humanistic, client-centered, strengths-based, motivational interviewing, and cognitive-behavioral therapy modalities. However, my therapeutic approach is based on the individual, and I welcome feedback so I can best understand and address each person’s needs.
If you are reading this, you’ve already shown great courage by reaching out. I am ready to keep taking next steps with you and will provide plenty of encouragement along the way!
I look forward to meeting and working with you soon!

Deanne is a wonderful human being. She is intelligent, insightful, caring, and giving of herself. She always does her best to meet her client’s needs, and I have been 100% satisfied with her.
My very first time reaching for therapy and words can't describe the amazing and supportive experience i've had and continue having with my therapist Deanne Bajaj.
Deanne is wonderful, I've hopped therapists a few times but I'm sticking with her. She listens, she gives constructive and actionable feedback, helps me set goals.
Deanne is the best hands down ! I love how straight-forward she is and also the real energy she brings to ever session. If you need someone I highly recommend Deanne.
Deanne is super helpful and keen on what I need, sometimes I didn’t even notice before her. I would definitely recommend her .
Deanne is the absolute best. She is understanding and really cares. I am very glad to have her as part of my life.
I have just started with her, but she has already proven to be a monumental help. She is very kind, compassionate, and tactful. Deanne is very clear and communative, and is dedicated to working out all of your issues in a way that suits you best. She is incredibly intelligent and I am excited to see where our time together leads.
So far I am really enjoying therapy. I feel Deanne has communicated in a timely matter and always listens fully and gives great advice, encouragement and feedback. Great match!
Deanne is a wonderful person and a fantastic therapist. I’ve only been working with her for a few weeks but it feels like I’ve known her forever. She is a great listener and really takes the time to make you feel understood. I highly recommend Deanne!
Deanna is the best! I wasn’t sure what to expect from a therapist but she has exceeded any expectations that I may have had.
Deanne is an externally kind and supportive therapist, in the short time I have been working with her she has really helped me to work with and understand some of my difficulties and her support has been unbelievable.
Very grateful to be working with her.
Deanna has been great from the very beginning. She’s made me feel very comfortable opening up to her, she’s very easy to talk to in our live sessions, and has always been supportive.
My first time trying therapy and I have been having a great experience so far. Would highly recommend Deanne to others.
