Queer Therapist In Chicago, IL - Indi Poloma
They/Them/She/Her
Intern

I am open to new clients at this time.

Life. Have you done it before? Me either! As first timers, it is no surprise that we encounter challenges, experience hang-ups, and may occasionally find ourselves questioning which way the world is spinning. It’s okay. We’re new at this and we don’t have to have all of the answers. What I do know is that the ups, downs, and everything in between, are part of the human experience. I believe that therapy is a great place to navigate the questions that come with being human and gain insight to a better self-understanding.

Welcome! I’m Indi. Drawing from narrative, strength-based and mindfulness modalities, my role as your therapist is to understand, support, and uplift every unique facet that makes you, you. To do this, I aim to create a safe, patient, and trusting therapeutic space for us to holistically explore your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Our sessions will be collaborative and open, growing at a pace and in a direction that feels right for you, always.

When we have a better understanding of who we are in this world, we can show up authentically with confidence, intentionality, and fully experience all of the joy in this life. It is important that you know that, as a Queer therapist, I bring all of who I am and my values, firmly rooted in safety, trust, affirmation, and respect, into every interaction. I am proud that life has brought you here and look forward to providing supportive space, witnessing your liberation of self discovery, and growing forward together.
