Professional statement

Sonja Seglin is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the Chicago Loop. She specializes in anxiety disorders and insomnia treatment. She focuses particularly on working with clients dealing with social anxiety, divorce issues, general stress, and sleep disorders. Sonja also has experience in helping individuals develop the use of nonviolent communication in order to get the most out of all of their relationships. Her belief is that therapy should not last forever, and her goal is to help you move forward with your life.

Sonja combines a background in Psychodynamic therapy with recent studies in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, while weaving in other treatment modalities as necessary. She spends sessions helping her clients to better understand why they're struggling, despite all of their attempts to conquer their anxiety. She meets her clients where they are and works with them to better understand their emotions and become more accepting of their thoughts and feelings, which ultimately leads to clients overcoming their personal challenges.

Sonja cares deeply for her clients and wants to help them reach a place where they feel empowered. She knows that life can feel overwhelming at times, and she wants to be there to support her clients as they embark on a new path. Her office is easily accessible from the Brown, Orange, Pink, Purple, Blue, and Brown lines. She looks forward to meeting you.


Message to clients

We will identify how your anxiety might be holding you back from achieving that vision. Then, we will make a plan to help you tame the power that anxiety has on you. I am confident that if we put in the time and effort, you will witness deep change in yourself.
