She/Her/HersLicensed Clinical Professional Counselor, LCPC Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Mary Kate Clucas, LCPC, is an individual psychotherapist in the Chicagoland area who specializes in treating professionals who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, C-PTSD, addictions, relationship issues and/or life transitions.
Mary Kate has nearly a decade of experience working in a variety of treatment settings, but has found immeasurable value, and her "home" in the longer-term work that individual therapy can provide. She does not believe there is a "one-size fits all" method of therapy, and believes that a holistic, collaborative approach to therapy brings about the most benefit to her clients.
When not in the therapy chair, Mary Kate enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, walking her dog and baking.
