ABOUT

AT A GLANCE

WHAT I DO?

Taking that step towards therapy, whether it's your first time or the hundredth time, can be nerve-wracking. Is this someone who will be able to understand who I am, what's important to me, or what I'm going through?

 

At Great Winds Counseling, I'm here to hold that space with you and recognize that wherever you're at, we'll work together to find relief from the stress... the anxiety... the trauma... the path to recovery and your authentic self. 

MY APPROACH

I specialize in trauma therapy, with a particular focus with  BIPOC individuals who have experienced cultural, racial, intergenerational, immigration stress or trauma, LGBTQIA+ folx on the journey of self-discovery and acceptance, as well as clients who have experienced relationship-based violence such as narcissistic abuse or sexual trauma.

I utilize a culturally sensitive and intersectional lens to find what works for you.  I recognize, acknowledge, and respect each aspect of the authentic you. Your journey may involve non-traditional approaches that incorporate what brings you joy— maybe it's creative arts, video games, TTRPGs, anime, etc. Together, we'll explore and find strategies that resonate with you.

 

Clients would describe my therapeutic style as warm, collaborative, affirming, and empowering.

WHO I AM?

Xin chào (Hello)!

 

My name is Thomas Nguyen (he/him).

 

I'm a second generation Vietnamese-American, queer, male therapist based in Illinois. I have worked in a variety of settings as a licensed clinical social worker and have a background in cultural studies. 

READY TO GET STARTED?

Starting on this process can be scary or exhausting but know it can also be empowering and life changing. If you're seeking a therapist who is warm, affirming, and committed to your well-being, I invite you to reach out to see if we're a good fit. Together, we'll navigate the winds of change and discover the path to healing and self-discovery.

At this time, I am: 

  • Immediately available for telehealth appointments in evenings and weekends

  • Serving adults (18+) clients in Illinois

  • Accepting BCBS PPO, Blue Choice PPO, Aetna PPO, Optum/United Healthcare plans, and private pay at this time. I can provide a superbill for out-of-network reimbursement.
