Pivot Collaborative, LLC is a collaborative of experienced trauma-informed therapists with strong ties to the LGBTQ+ community. We are dedicated to providing culturally attuned services, and to being advocates and allies to the diverse client-base we serve. As such, not only do we strive to meet the needs of our clients through offering individual, family, couple, and group therapy, we are also adept at crafting workshops and trainings that are individualized to the needs of clinicians, businesses, and organizations. We offer consultation and supervision to others in the field in order to continue to build Chicago’s clinical capacity for radically accepting, affirming therapy work. We are strong advocates for children, teens, and families throughout Chicago, specializing in crisis intervention and alleviating the difficulties of typical adjustment periods.

The identities we bring into the therapeutic space hold significance as clients and clinicians. Whether you share the racial or cultural identity of your therapist or if they differ, we view these dynamics as essential to recognize in the therapeutic relationship.

We strive to provide services from a stance of cultural humility, the goal of which is to maintain a stance that is other-oriented and person-centered in relation to aspects of cultural identity that are most important to the person.

Our therapists are highly trained to be inclusive and sensitive to the unique experiences that diverse backgrounds can include. We have been serving diverse populations of individuals and families who have faced trauma, oppression, and inequity in Chicago for years.
