Jena Catania, Evanston Staff Therapist

Providing therapy for Evanston individuals and couples.

"I view the therapeutic relationship as a partnership, and find the relational aspect of therapy to be an integral piece in making strides towards meeting the clients needs and goals. Confronting the difficulties and pain in life is often challenging and uncomfortable—as such I strive to create a safe space for my clients to process authentically. I know each client is unique and work to meet the client where they are, with empathy, humor, support, challenge, and encouragement throughout our journey together."


Adults, children and adolescents with anxiety, depression, trauma, LGBTQ concerns, relational difficulties, gender identity, multicultural concerns, and personality disorders. Psychological assessment and testing for children, adolescents, and adults. Sliding scale therapy available!
