GET TO KNOW your therapist

Julia jordan-lake, LPC

Hi! I’m Julia.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who is passionate about partnering with caregivers in working with unlocking the strengths of their holistic child. I work with both children and adolescents through the framework of play therapy, as well as a play-based form of CBT, depending on the developmental level of my client and the needs of the family. I specialize in working with anxiety, ADHD, depression, autistic children/teens, LGBTQ+ children/teens, as well as managing self-esteem and identity factors related to neurodevelopmental differences. 

Toys are children’s words and play is their language

Garry Landreth

MY THERAPEUTIC APPROACH...

My therapeutic approach centers on the idea that your child/teen is not a problem to be fixed, but a human being attempting to get their needs met with  current limitations in the expression of their thoughts, feelings, and emotions. A child’s behavior offers us clues towards uncovering and discovering better tools to co-regulate (connect with caregiver), as well as self-regulate (independently self-soothe). 

MY HOPE...

  • My hope is that through our work together, you and your child/teen will experience a collaborative and safe space to learn and grow together. I value neurodiversity, caregiver/child work, and collaboration with other providers in the life of your child/teen (doctors, psychiatrists, teachers, other therapists, etc.)  

MORE ABOUT ME

When I am not playing (read: at work!) in the office, I can be found reading in a coffee shop or on a trail out in a forest preserve!
