Katie Susik is a Clinical Intern at Bricolage Wellness. She sees clients at the Chicago-Lakeview location.
Hello there! I am a graduate student at Northwestern University pursuing clinical mental health counseling. For four years, I sat in my corporate cubicle daydreaming of sitting with you (yes, YOU!). I could only suppress my passion for feelings, emotions and the human condition for so long, before ultimately embarking on a 180 career change.
Through this life transition, I learned that the pursuit of psychotherapy is to care for and tend to the soul. Many of us walk around with burdens we were never meant or prepared to carry. In the spirit of Brene Brown, I have made it my life’s mission to crawl into dark holes with my clients, with the hope that they will one day rise and achieve true wellbeing.
My therapeutic style is rooted in psychodynamic theory. I believe we are the sum of our life’s experiences and that there is meaning beneath everything we say and do. Together, I’m ready to unpack and explore. Know that your space is safe with me.
*Katie is currently accepting adolescents, adults, couples and families. She provides services to all clients for a sliding-scale fee
