Stormy Harrison

LCSW

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Illinois with 9 years experience providing individual and group substance and mental health counseling. I also hold a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor Certificate (CADC) and a Mental Illness and Substance Abuse Certificate (MISA I). I have worked in both adult and juvenile prison settings. I completed my practicum at a local community-based mental health and substance use treatment facility. After my practicum, I was hired by the same organization and continue to work with clients who are mandated by the courts, as well as clients who seek counseling to better their lives. I am very experienced in addictions counseling and have worked with many clients who are dealing with co-occurring disorders. For the past 6 months I have worked as a Crisis Counselor with adults and adolescents.
My therapeutic approach is laid-back, which allows me to create a safe, nonjudgmental space to make clients feel at ease to share, learn, and grow. I emphasize assisting individuals to learn skills including setting healthy boundaries, learning to communicate their wants and needs, and to cultivate healthy relationships. I believe it is imperative to have a strong, trusting, therapeutic relationship that includes the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to employe clients to live the best life they can.
I look forward to working with you!

I really like talking to Stormy, she is very understanding. I have been learning about things that I didn't know before, and it has been helping me improve my mood and my perspective. She is like a mentor, and I wish I had met her sooner.

Stormy is great! She is always there to check on me and is accepting and supportive. I found it easy to open up to her from the start. She has been amazing!

10/10 definitely recommend having Stormy as a counselor! You can tell she genuinely cares about what you have to say and what you’re going through - she gives amazing feedback that really helps and you don’t feel like she’s just watching the clock and waiting for your session to end (which is a feeling I’ve had with counseling in the past). I instantly felt comfortable talking with Stormy like I’ve known her forever- there’s something about how caring and straightforward she is that is very familiar and comforting.

Stormy is a great counselor. She gives me worksheets to help me practice coping skills, she checks on me daily, she works with all my different disorders and is very skilled in her field.

Written by S.A. on Apr 24, 2020 after therapy with Stormy for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and family conflicts

Absolutely amazing! We haven’t been working together very long and it’s like I can open up to her about everything and she has been pin pointing everything. Her help is next level and I couldn’t be happier. I couldn’t thank her enough.

Written by Z.A. on Apr 10, 2020 after therapy with Stormy for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, anger management, and coping with life changes

I was skeptical at first doing counseling in this manner via internet. After the first couple of chats I realized how lucky I am for having Stormy there when things have been tough! I like knowing I do not have to wait until next week to talk about issues today. I am very pleased with Stormy and BetterHelp!

Work with me!
