Shirley Khong is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a master’s degree in Clinical Counseling and Psychotherapy from The Institute for Clinical Social Work and a bachelor's degree in Sociology and a minor in Social Work from The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Throughout her professional career she has worked with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families in a variety of settings including, middle and high schools, community mental health centers and in group practice. She finds immense joy when she helps to empower her clients to develop and become more aware of their triggers, needs and wants.
For new clients, she explains how attending therapy for the first time is similar to unpacking a puzzle and slowly putting it back together. This can be an intimidating and vulnerable form of self-expression, but the therapy starts where clients feel the most comfortable. In doing so, clients are already taking the first steps towards a deeper understanding of themselves. Each of our stories are complex and unique and you know your story best. She is deeply honored to be able to join you on your journey of self-awareness to create the best version of yourself in all aspects of your life.
