Carolyn Stypka


Greetings and thank you so much for considering me as your mental health practitioner! It can be hard to be brave in our world, and that includes seeking help from others. I like to look at counseling sessions as a gift of time for yourself. Our time together would be about you and your needs, and figuring out ways to heal or get there.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and have various passions ranging from youth to end of life, as well as connecting body and mind together. As a certified yoga teacher, I may invite you to explore how movements and stretches can help dislodge and relax in ways that talk

therapy or a bubble bath might not always do the trick (but they’re good too!). Movements are always your choice in session, and it’s not a requirement for working with me.

I graduated with my Masters of Social Work from UIC’s Jane Addams School of Social Work. I have 12 years of experience in schools, educational centers, churches, hospitals, community health centers, and crisis interventions.

For talk therapy, I use a variety of styles and techniques, which would naturally come up in our meetings and working together. With a Bachelors of Studio Arts, I also can incorporate creative arts as a relaxation and expression tool as you are interested.  I look forward to creating a trust-filled, healthy relationship to assist you on yourself. At times, therapy sessions may just be a backboard for you to comfortably release stress or inner thoughts. My approach in therapy strives to be strength-based, empowering, grounding and calming.

Changes are always happening around us. In life, we learn and figure out how to grow, change or adjust. I am here to support you in becoming the best version of you; how that looks is your choice. (Hint: You’re already fantastic!)
