Emma Peck-Block, LCSW

I believe that therapy is a unique place to begin to explore a person’s life story and to understand oneself in the context of that personal history and present situation.  The way we tell our stories defines who we are in the moment that we tell it and therapy offers an opportunity to learn that the story is not finished and that the narrative can be changed. I emphasize the importance of the therapeutic relationship in helping clients understand themselves and in working towards who they would like to become.  

I practice Psychodynamic therapy and will draw from Attachment theory, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindful Self-compassion, body awareness, play, narrative and art in my approach. 

  I have recently completed a fellowship at Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis and am currently completing a Type 73 certification that will enable me to advocate for the needs of families and students in the schools.
