Meet Grace Norberg, LMFT


“Change becomes a necessary step once we can no longer emotionally afford to stay the same.”

As a therapist I strive to strike a balance between empathy and challenging my clients to move towards a transformation. Change is hard, and I acknowledge the fact that anyone who seeks therapy has already made a difficult and major step towards bettering their life.

I received my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from The Family Institute at Northwestern University. There I was trained in Integrative Systemic Therapy, which is the model I use with individuals, couples and families. This model helps me utilize behavioral, emotional and family-systems strategies with clients to create lasting change. I focus on empirically proven factors such as prioritizing a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients through goals, homework, and in-session interventions as well as through empathy and validation. I am LGBTQIA affirming.

I deeply value my identity as a “lifelong learner”. I am a supervisor of students at The Family Institute, which helps me keep my perspective fresh, and attend special trainings multiple times a year. I have a certification in Domestic Violence intervention, am knowledgeable about trauma in children and adults, and am a professional crisis counselor at Community Counseling Centers of Chicago.

My strongest interests in therapy are working with women, couples of all orientations, and family relationships especially mother-daughter dynamics. I am skilled in treating anxiety, communication issues, depression and suicidality.
