Gregory Potts, LCSW
Chicago Lakeview Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Trust, empathy, and respect are the foundation upon which any valuable relationship is built, including the relationship between a therapist and a client. I strive to create that sort of caring relationship with clients from the time of our first meeting. I believe that this establishes a safe space in which you can reflect on your life, gain perspective and imagine a hopeful vision for your future. As a companion on your journey, I offer my thoughts and insights while always recognizing that you are the ultimate expert on your own life and the choices you face.
I have worked with a variety of clients. I have particular experience with the challenges of living with chronic illness; aging; loss and grief; and issues related to sexuality and gender identity. I have had the joy of watching many clients discover their strengths to overcome obstacles.
You bring many aspects of identity to therapy, including your race, gender, culture, physical and health challenges, sexuality, and religious or philosophical outlook. I strive to honor and understand all these characteristics as well as your family dynamics and the impacts of our larger political and social context.
