Teletherapy: Illinois
in-person: Chicago – ravenswood

Elli Clark is a Pre-Licensed LPC. Prior to entering the counseling profession, she cherished a career in the environmental sector and graduated from DePaul University with a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies and Biological Sciences. She employs a creative and collaborative, holistic approach to therapy that merges humanistic, existential, and systems-based therapeutic perspectives, to help clients create a more meaningful and connected existence aligned with their purpose.

Elli works with individuals, families, and couples, and her areas of interest include complex trauma and PTSD, relational work, spirituality, identity and life transitions, and chronic illness. She believes the journey towards wellness incorporates tending to the mind, body, and spirit, and she is comfortable working with clients hoping to integrate spirituality or somatic work into the therapeutic process. As a trauma-informed therapist, she also understands the sensitive, complex nature of trauma work and is committed to destigmatizing and providing education on trauma and its varying impacts.

Elli’s intuitive, empathic approach to building authentic therapeutic relationships provides a warm, inviting space for adults and couples to safety and authentically explore, grow, and connect. She utilizes a wide array of integrative, evidence-based therapeutic modalities that meet the unique needs of her clients and help them address, cope with, and make meaning out of their experiences.
