Dwight Bejec, MSCP
Struggles with mental health do not have to take over your life, they do not have to define you as a person, it’s just important that you ask for help. It’s not a sign of weakness when you open yourself up to the reality that, maybe, you are not in this alone. We are spirits experiencing a human existence and I truly believe that by empowering ourselves to make room in our lives for healing, we will better for it. By taking the steps to heal ourselves we can begin to heal the collective.
I am graduate of Benedictine University and hold a Masters of Science in Clinical Psychology. In addition to my therapy background, I studied Traditional Chinese Medicine and am NADA certified in Oricular Acupuncture. I work to meld Eastern and Western modalities for a holistic approach to therapy that incorporates the mind, body and spirit connection. Prior to my current role at Evolution Counseling, I worked for a national rehabilitation center helping patients in both group and individual services on their journey toward sobriety. My specialties include depression, anxiety, chemical dependency, individuals struggling with transition, impulse control, and trauma. I provide individual, family and couples counseling regardless of sexual orientation. Using skills based therapies & mindfulness approaches, my goal is to empower everyone to find their own path.
The practice I am a part of (Evolution Counseling, Inc.) is LGBTQ affirming, a member of WPATH and the Gender Non-Conforming Commission of Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. We are committed to the long-term evolution and healing of all people regardless of race, sex, gender, gender identity or ethnicity.
