Non-binary, QueerTherapist In Chicago, IL - Phuong Nguyen
They/Them/Theirs
MSW, Pre-Licensed Therapist

I am open to new clients at this time.

I work with adults and couples from different walks of life. As a holistic practitioner, I’ve come to understand it’s a different dance for each person when working towards embodying their voice, choice, boundaries, and authenticity. I take into consideration your experiences relationally and with systems and how they may impact the relationship to your inner landscape. My identities: 1st generation Vietnamese immigrant, non-binary, queer, polyamorous & ex-catholic. Also being someone who is neurodivergent, along with the intersection of these identities, has shaped the way I move in the world while inspiring me to continue being curious & going outside of the box when I work with each unique human.

I incorporate mind-body practices: IFS, Somatic Experiencing (SE), and trauma-informed yoga. Areas I have supported clients with: burnout, stress, neurodivergence, anxiety, depression, breakups/divorce, relationship challenges, boundaries, communication, trauma, life transitions, and exploring their gender, sexuality, identities & relationship styles.

My approach is non-judgmental, informed-consent, and person-centered while drawing upon an intersectional lens to honor each unique human where you are seen, heard, and feel like you matter. I believe in supporting clients to lead as you are the expert of your lived experiences while collaborating and at times challenging you on your reblooming journey.
