Lauren Bondy, LCSW

Therapist, Parent Educator /Parent Coach

In addition to parent coaching, I offer a variety of therapeutic services for adults, teens and couples in a safe environment.  I help my clients explore the relationships and areas of their lives that create pain or cause them to feel stuck or limited.  As a professional with a wide range of training and therapeutic skills, I offer compassion and ability to see my clients as unique--each has special gifts and purpose.  Often, life's inevitable pain and challenges create obstacles to accessing our best selves.  You will be hled in a nurturing and collaborative environment as we explore and discover the limiting beliefs that interfere with feeling the joy that you deserve. 

Clients who work with me are accepted at all times.  As I empower you to move beyond your current challenges, I will incorporate meditation, mindfulness and other strategies that will help you develop mind-body awareness, access your inner wisdom and strength as you move toward greater authenticity and inner peace.  Many of my clients have made significant shifts when we work with the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model. 

I received my Master's degree in clinical social work from Loyola University Chicago.  I specialize in working with anxiety, stress, depression, parenting and family issues including divorce and separation. 

FOR PARENTS:  My extensive background in parenting and family issues will help you understand the root of your child's behavioral issues. In additon, I'll help you develop a toolbox of effectvive, non-punitive discipline strategies.  Set limits that stick.  Nurture self-esteem and resilience.  Discover strategies for power struggles and defiance.  No Band-aid solutions--we know they dont' work!  As co-founder of Parenting Perspectives, I have presented original workshops and courses to over 14,000 parents and teachers in the Chicago metropolitan area. I am a keynote speaker, repeated Hay House radio guest, have authored numerous articles, and appeared on ABC-7's Connect with Kids. My work has been called "eye opening, incredibly positive and non-judgmental."
