Jodie Yorg EMDR Relationship Therapist
she/her/hers
Pre-Licensed Therapist, Head of Training & Development

I am open to new clients at this time.

I believe that all behavior is adaptive and people have the underlying skills to achieve their goals. My work focuses on identifying your strengths to help you improve functioning, and get where you want to go, in a trauma-informed way.

I have Master’s degrees in Education, Business Administration, and Clinical Mental Health Counseling and believe this diverse lived experience serves me well in the therapy room. My style brings a lot of humor, skill acquisition, and direct communication to our relationship.

I am particularly passionate about working with neurodiverse folks. As a member of the community myself, I’ve come to focus on how to identify internalized ableism and help people thrive authentically in a world that privileges the neurotypical.

Finally, I am a fierce advocate for the trans community. As a mother of a trans child, it is my honor to work with this community. My research interests focus on how to find gender and neurotype affirming interventions.

I have completed Level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and I love helping couples and families interact with love, compassion, and honesty. As a mother of four myself, I’ve seen first-hand how family and couples counseling can transform the day to day and enrich the love you already feel. I am also a member of Kink/Poly Aware Chicago Therapists.

Like you, I am also working on my own mental wellness. I believe therapy is a dynamic process where we both learn and grow together. I commit to keeping a safe, non-judgmental space for you to find your own best self.
