Together We Can Tackle What's Holding You Back

Managing life can feel like an uphill battle when you’re dealing with painful thoughts and feelings, or difficult life events — and even harder when it feels like you’re facing them alone. Life stressors and ongoing emotional pain can negatively impact our quality of life, relationships, or physical and mental wellbeing.

Your interest in participating in therapy is such an important first step in helping yourself, and I recognize the courage it takes to reach out and ask for support. I will offer a safe, collaborative therapeutic space, free of judgment, where we can explore and gain insight into your unique experiences. I strive for you to feel heard, understood, and valued.

Together, we will understand your hopes and goals for therapy. We will work towards creating tools to help you feel more hopeful, compassionate with yourself, and confident in how to access your own inner-resources to work through the difficulties you are facing, and experience the change or personal growth you seek.

About Aimee Summers, LCSW

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Illinois, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. In 2004, I received my Master of Social Work degree from New York University. My therapeutic approach is both client-centered, and strength-based focusing on the whole person. I utilize a variety of evidence-based modalities based on the individual needs of my client. Although Psychodynamic training anchors my work, I draw from Attachment Based Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS). I also incorporate aspects of mindfulness-based techniques, and solution-focused approaches. HIPAA compliant virtual sessions are available to residents of Illinois, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
