Allie Socki

Hello! I’m Allie Socki (she/her) and I am passionate about facilitating a creative space to reflect on self-empowerment and accessing inner strengths to thrive amidst life’s challenges.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Registered Art Therapist- provisional (ATR-P). I draw from the person-centered model of therapy, incorporating mindfulness techniques, trauma-informed care and expressive/art therapy techniques.

Because art making in therapy can bring forth a broad range of emotions, it is important to have a safe space to process what is uncovered. In the therapy room, you will find a comfortable space, tools for empowerment, and a judgment-free atmosphere to creatively express yourself. When words fail us, expressive therapies can help to tap into other forms of healing and connecting to others. Intentionally taking part in art therapy allows a person to open the doors of communication and give opportunities for self-discovery.

My experience has made me skilled in working with children, adolescents and adults who may struggle with issues of identity and social/emotional problems, as well as those with learning disabilities and developmental disorders. I have a background in working with those who identify as LGBTQ+ and who experience daily struggles living with ADHD, anxiety, and depression. As a neurodivergent clinician, I have experience with the nuances of this developmental difference and I foster a safe space for clients of all ages to comfortably unmask during the therapeutic process.

I completed a dual-degree program at Adler University in Chicago, where I received my Masters in Counseling and Art Therapy in 2020. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a concentration in Human Development from DePaul University in 2018. In addition to my graduate studies, I have focused learning in other experiential and play based approaches to working with young people.
