LaShawn Etheridge


About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Chicago, Illinois with over 7 years of experience working with people experiencing complex trauma, attachment issues, depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders. I've also worked with individuals experiencing separation and loss, and parenting problems.

Within the therapeutic relationship, we will work to develop goals to support your individual needs and move towards change. Through self-reflection, therapy can develop your capacity to be more self-aware, challenge negative thoughts and build towards a more safe and healthy life functioning.

I believe that prioritizing one's mental health is an investment in self, it is an active step towards your healing journey.

I look forward to working with you.
