About Me

Hello! My name is Heidi Schreck and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Chicago with three years of experience working as a therapist. I have over 10 years of experience working in social services and also hold a 200-hour yoga teacher certification. I have worked extensively with adolescents and children experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, adverse childhood experiences, self-harm, grief, and relationship issues. My counseling style is warm, judgement free, and playful. My approach is client-centered. I believe you are the expert on your life, not me. You can expect to be treated with respect and compassion. My approach is holistic and eclectic-- it combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, psychodynamic and trauma-informed counseling. I will tailor our treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to create change in your life. I am here to support and empower you! Therapy is for everyone.

Written by L.A. on Jun 21, 2021 after counseling with Heidi for 10 months

Heidi counseled our daughter, and was also available to give us tips on parenting her and understanding her point of view. Heidi was responsive and helpful to us as a family.

Heidi has been offering helpful worksheets to address our initial concerns. I'm looking forward to continuing work with her and growing more of a foundation.

Written by A.L. on Jun 28, 2020 after counseling with Heidi for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression

I was really nervous about talking to a counselor as I have had a bad experience in the past. Heidi made the whole experience feel so comfortable. I'm really grateful to have been paired with her as she has been so supportive and has given me many great suggestions or things to think about.

Heidi always makes me feel comfortable and provides great resources to help me grow. She helps me think about things in ways I don’t know how and to really think deeper about why I’m feeling how I’m feeling and what I can do to change my perspectives.
