Anna Kultys, LCPC – Staff Therapist
I'm a licensed counselor with 12 years of experience in providing adults with individual, couples, and group therapy in a variety of settings. My key areas of clinical expertise consist of depression, anxiety, grief, coping with trauma, concerns related to stress, work, and relationships, immigration and acculturation, as well as confidence and identity issues. My approaches are cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, mind-body connectedness, and existential. I am also fluent in Polish.
I approach therapy with an open mind, empathic attitude, and dedication to engaging with you in taking ownership of your goals. I believe that every individual deserves the respect that counseling conveys by virtue of providing the time and space to express and explore yourself: how you feel, your struggles, your goals, and who you are. Taking this time opens the door for reduction in feelings of anxiety, stress, and sadness, among others, while creating a space to define and act on a new future for yourself. To that end, sessions focus on awareness, acceptance, and motivation towards change.
My experience is drawn from having worked with adults in community and private mental health settings as well as within the context of medicolegal evaluations. I earned my Master's degree in Forensic Psychology at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Illinois. Since then, I have completed a fellowship focused on the study of psychodynamic psychotherapy with the Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis, in addition to numerous trainings focused on current and best practices in the field.
My passions include spending as much time as possible with my family and friends, traveling and exploring new places, and all forms of art.
Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see.
