Professional statement

Certified clinical trauma professional, Lilly White, is a licensed clinical social worker in Illinois. She works to empower people to overcome anxiety, overwhelm, and past traumas to find a healthy balance for their physical and mental well-being. She does this through healthy discussions and evidence-based techniques.

Seeking therapy is putting yourself first. You deserve a space to heal and grow. During sessions with Lilly, you will find a safe and non-judgmental space with a therapist who will listen to you. She will meet you with compassion and help you get to the root of your struggles.

The first few sessions will focus on getting to know you, your symptoms, and what brought you to therapy—perhaps your history, childhood, or relationship. You will reflect on experiences that may be impacting your thoughts and behaviors today. Together, you will then look at those takeaways and translate them into homework to ponder for the week. This process will continue for the duration of your time in therapy.

Lilly typically utilizes psychodynamic therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Psychodynamic therapy involves building a solid therapist-client alliance to aid in developing the psychological tools needed to deal with complicated feelings and situations. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy focuses on how thoughts and behaviors dictate a person's emotions in a given situation.

Lilly's areas of expertise are working with those dealing with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and trauma. She has spent many years studying and training within these areas to be able to work individually with clients experiencing symptoms related to these diagnoses.
