About

Mr. Stevens is a full-time Therapist at The Family Institute providing Individual and Couples Therapy. He specializes in working with individuals and couples who are struggling with intimacy and forming relationships, feelings of depression, integrating past and present relational injuries or trauma as well as life stage transitions. His approach to therapy is centered around creating an empathetic and non-judgmental space for each client to explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions in ways that may have previously felt too overwhelming to embark on alone. Mr. Stevens tailors his interventions to each individual's goals and needs drawing upon relational psychodynamic processes, mindfulness-based interventions and techniques from CBT and DBT, all from a trauma-informed and multicultural framework.

Mr. Stevens believes our past experiences and early relationships form how we currently relate to ourselves and others, supporting clients in gaining insight into their thoughts processes, behaviors and relational patterns. This also informs his interest and training in psychodynamic and interpersonal approaches along with training in trauma-focused interventions and cognitive behavioral therapy. After practicing in New York City with various outpatient practices, he has recently returned to the Chicago area, where he is originally from, and is excited to be back in the community. 

Other Professional Involvement/Leadership Positions

Mr. Stevens is a Fellow at The Chicago Center for Psychoanalysis.
