Rae Rich, LCSW
After practicing therapy for more than 30 years, 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 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 seeking a deeper understanding of themselves and/or their relationships. Although my early psychodynamic training remains foundational, I believe that insight alone is not enough for lasting change to occur and that healing must also take place in the body and one’s relationships. I utilize an eclectic approach that combines developmental, mind-body 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.
