My name is Antionette Davis. I am a therapist who works with adults and adolescents who are looking to make sense out of the mentally draining clutter and confusion building up in their thoughts and mind. My goal is to help you find balance in your thought-life through an increase of self-awareness and initiate practical steps towards the life you want to see.
I believe therapy works best when there can be collaboration between the therapist and client to create an environment where you can be honest about your needs and desires, heal from your experiences, and explore your feelings without; guilt, pressure to perform, or fear around not being accepted. You may have a gut feeling that there’s something more, something better, for you on the other side of therapy and I encourage you to embrace that feeling. Together we will team up and create new norms setting value-based goals and introducing new healthy habits that promote personal growth.
I received a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology at Lewis University with a concentration in Children and Adolescents and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Grambling State University in Louisiana and licensed to practice in Illinois. I have worked with a diverse population of children and their families from early childhood to college. Similarly, I have provided group and individual counseling to over 150 Chicago Public School students on the city’s Southside. I am trained in the following skills and specializations: anxiety, identity, self-esteem, home-work-life balance, life stress, depression, post-partum depression, women’s issues, and trauma.
