Rae Rich, LCSW
After more than 25 years of providing psychotherapy, I continue to be fascinated and humbled by the human psyche’s capacity for growth, healing and resilience.
I received my MSW from Jane Addams College of Social Work in Chicago and subsequently worked as a staff therapist and clinical supervisor at the University of Chicago, where I provided therapy to children and families in the foster care system. Many of those families taught me the true meaning of inner strength and the transformative power of relationships.
I enjoy working with individuals and couples who are seeking a deeper understanding of themselves and/or their relationships, and I have extensive experience helping clients overcome depression, anxiety, grief, low self-esteem, persistent conflict, lack of intimacy, and traumatic experiences. While my early psychodynamic training remains foundational, I believe that insight alone is not enough for lasting change to occur. I utilize an eclectic approach that combines developmental, cognitive, and relational perspectives to help clients achieve their goals. I feel very fortunate to be able to do the work I love, and I bring authenticity, skill and a deep sense of respect to the therapeutic process and the change that unfolds within it.
