Sarah Bendix

LCSW (Jefferson Park/Chicago)

    “I believe that therapy is a process of learning and experiencing more fully who you are. Often therapy is sought in the face of injuries, loss, beliefs, and fears that have made it difficult to engage with the sense of possibility you feel when most fully alive. The seeds of that felt sense of aliveness already exist within you, and therapy can provide the opportunity and safe container to nurture those seeds. My work is informed by a background in the creative arts, advanced training in the feminist relational model of treating trauma, behavioral and psychodynamic schools of thought, and my current studies in Somatic Experiencing. I use an eclectic approach based on these trainings to explore how your history, thoughts, actions, and mind/body experience support or detract from your goals. Fundamentally, I believe that healing takes place within the framework of a safe, collaborative, and connected relationship that is the foundation of my work as a therapist. I see clients in the Jefferson Park office.”
