I’m Shaysa Villa, usually go by Shay. I am a psychotherapist in Illinois and Washington DC.

Clinical Social Worker in Chicago, IL

About My Clients

Individuals and couples who choose to work with me are seeking a depth, gentle, structured, and directive psychotherapist to help them navigate their anxiety, distress, disconnection, and dissatisfaction in their relationship with others and themselves.

My Background and Approach

I work particularly well with individuals and couples who have some expectation of what has worked in the past in therapy and what has not worked in the past in therapy. Individuals and couples who understand the commitment, timing, and pacing of therapeutic work have seen the best results throughout our time together. I witness individuals and couples I work best with lose hope by being disappointed by past experiences and my role will be to create a safe space for you to truly express yourself, collaborate, and give feedback of what was helpful and unhelpful throughout our agreed upon implementation of interventions and approaches. My clients have found me reliable, committed, and enthusiastic to help them navigate their struggles and pain. My clients have been able to build safety and trust in our work together to be as honest as they can with themselves and others (including me). In turn, they have seen change and growth in their anxiety, trauma, and relationships.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a modern therapist, I provide culturally sensitive, unique, and creative therapy to help individuals and couples. I understand how hard it can be to find a therapist that seems relatable or trustworthy. I work particularly well with individuals navigating anxiety, identity, relationship, and trauma looking for a therapist that "gets it". This may be an overwhelming point in your life, but pursuing psychotherapy can be one of the most transformative experiences you can take to heal & grow. As your therapist, I will help you navigate ways your thoughts may be negatively impacting your life. I will help you learn ways to manage and pursue the goal of not allowing anxiety and trauma to derail your days. My role will be to help you explore and identify unclear reasons that prevent you from living or having your envisioned life. My approach is compassionate and to truly listen. I seek to be in-tune with you as an individual and as a couple. I look forward to hearing from you.
