Accepting Clients

Hi there, I'm Dr. Alese Bennett. I help my clients learn more about themselves, their relationships, and who they would like to become.

Post-Doctoral Fellow in Illinois
Supervised by Adam Fominaya, LCP

About My Clients

I primarily work with individuals (16+ years old) and couples who are struggling with problems related to life transitions, anxiety, depression, and relationships. I also have experience exploring gender and sexuality, LGBTQ+ issues, problematic eating patterns, and sexual/relational trauma. I especially enjoy working with students, artists, and creative minds.

My Background and Approach

Seeking therapy and finding a professional you trust can be difficult. I aim to ease this transition by creating a nonjudgmental, flexible, and supportive space for our sessions- one that promotes your growth and healing. I believe meaningful change starts with meaningful relationships. As such, I will partner with you to build an alliance that fosters curiosity, strength, and resilience. I value depth-based work and use an integrative, individualized approach to therapy. Inherent in this approach is diligently staying attuned to your goals and what you need from our sessions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a therapist, I bring a compassionate and client-centered approach to my practice, rooted in my personal belief in the power of self growth. I believe in creating a nonjudgmental space where you can explore your triumphs, tragedies, and everything in between. My approach is integrative and personalized, as I am dedicated to meeting your unique needs and goals regardless of your identity, background, or life experience. I am passionate about understanding and dismantling oppressive systems and using the therapy room as a catalyst for social change.
