Roamers Therapy takes a culturally sensitive, unique, and creative approach to therapy to help individuals and families achieve mental well-being. 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 from your current state.

As your therapist, I will help you navigate ways your thoughts may be negatively impacting your life. I will help you manage and grasp ways to cope and not allow anxiety and depression to derail your days. As a Roamers Therapist, my role will be to be by your side & help you explore and identify unclear reasons that prevent you from living or having your envisioned life.

Hi! I’m Candice Love (she/her). I am a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor at Roamers Therapy.

Philosophy

Life is truly a gift that is meant to be enriching, filled with freedom and happiness. At times we experience challenges that prevent us from living life the way we truly desire. As a modern cognitive behavioral therapist, I understand these challenges and how they may alter us internally. My approach to therapy is a collaborative, solution focused and nonjudgmental.

Through this approach I will assist you in gaining insight into who you are, empower you to grow and allow you to truly gain the life that you deserve to live. I value being emotionally, behaviorally and mentally healthy. Together we can identify the best strategies, perspectives, and mindsets in order for you to create long lasting mental, emotional, and behavioral health that can improve your life.

Hi! I’m Raechel Pierce (she/her). I am a psychotherapist in Chicago, IL & I currently practice at Roamers Therapy.

Philosophy

Sometimes life throws us challenges that are too overwhelming to handle alone. As a trauma informed and culturally sensitive therapist, I understand the importance of allowing space and time for healing in a non-judgmental space. As your therapist, my priority is that you feel comfortable as we work through these difficulties together. My approach is collaborative, as your voice is equally important. This is your lived experience, and my role is to help guide and gently empower you towards realizing a better version of yourself.

Together, we will explore patterns holding you back in your life & relationships. We will find negative thought patterns hindering your perception of self & develop coping strategies that work to help restore balance. My therapeutic style is empathic, and tailored to you as an individual.

Hi! I’m Andres Carrion (he/him). I am a professional counseling student at Northwestern University and a psychotherapist in training at Roamers Therapy.

Philosophy

As a person-centered and multicultural oriented therapist, it is my philosophy that you know yourself better than anyone else and that it is your right to guide the therapeutic process. I strive to meet clients where they are at. I believe that you are a unique individual with diverse experiences and there is value in that. The differences that make you, you, should not only be seen, but understood and validated. 

Over the past five years, I have worked in research concerning the health inequities of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) community, particularly among folks of color. Through my work, I have learned the importance of listening to your stories and the value of empowering your voice.
