Dr. Joi Basley


About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Chicago, Illinois with over 3 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients from a wide range of concerns including: post-traumatic stress, depression, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, family conflict, grief and loss, and emotional abuse. Additionally, I have worked in the field of social work and mental health for over 20 years assisting individuals and families.

My counseling style is very empathetic, mindful and client-centered, yet direct and straightforward. I believe in treating everyone with respect and dignity but most importantly I pride myself on demonstrating compassion for all and being sensitive to the needs of others.

It takes a great deal of courage to seek professional help and even more courage to implement change. However, if you are ready to take the next steps to begin living a more fulfilling and self-empowered lifestyle, I’d love to help guide you along the way.

I look forward to working with you.

Thank you!
