GET TO KNOW your therapist

Evelyn brewton, lpc

Hi there! My name is Evelyn.

I am a licensed professional counselor and psychotherapist. I specialize in working with young children and their caregivers. But I also work with couples, individuals, and anyone else in need of therapy. I am trained in child and parent psychotherapy, a model that helps families heal from traumatic experiences, and ABA therapy, a behavioral therapy used primarily in the treatment of autism spectrum disorder and behavioral problems. My goal is to help families understand one another and build healthy enduring bonds through various means including play therapy.

I provide a warm, inviting, non-threatening environment where clients can explore their feelings and feel comfortable talking about challenges from the past, present, or concerns regarding the future.

History has shown us that courage can be contagious, and hope can take on a life of its own.

In session, we will address issues preventing families from maintaining a strong functioning emotionally safe home environment. These include issues of trauma, behavioral management, adoption, blended families, and developmental issues, to name a few. I am also skilled in working with children and adults with Autism and other developmental disabilities as well as couples and individuals.

I believe

Therapy is a joint effort between client and therapist. With that said I feel therapy can be extremely rewarding and beneficial when done with that in mind.

My Approach

My approach to therapy is eclectic. I pull from many different theories to tailor and customize a treatment plan just for you. I use a trauma-informed lens with each client and recognize each client is different and amazing.

Traumatic healing for all age groups

Trauma can affect people of all age groups, including children. I specialize in working with children ages 0-6 and their families to heal these traumas and get back to just being a kid.  


When I am not seeing clients at Urban Wellness you can find me working with non-profit organizations throughout the city of Chicago. In my spare time, I write. I am an author and I have a children’s book published on Amazon. My book teaches children the importance of friendship, diversity, and community. The rest of my time is spent relaxing at home or doing fun things with my family.
