Who We Are

Our Values

Psychological difficulties can arise from the misalignment between thoughts and emotions, actions and deeply-held values, and personal aspirations and societal pressures. With our clients, we seek to understand these difficulties in the wider context of the ongoing erasure of individual and cultural differences. We see the impact of ongoing racism, intolerance, inequality, and xenophobia at individual, national, and global levels, and of the silencing of people with marginalized identities. We affirm the unique value of each person and community, stand in solidarity with those who are oppressed, and empower clients to facilitate their resilience, growth, and healing.

We Have Offices in Chicago, Evanston, and Remotely via Telehealth

Why the Name Vita Nova
Dante Alighieri

Italian poet Dante Alighieri wrote Vita Nova in 1295. A combination of prose and verse, the book narrates Dante's own experience of loss, in his case of a loved woman. The narrative details how an upsetting event was transformed by the Poet into an occasion for maturation and growth. The book starts with a sentence in Latin, Incipit Vita Nova, "thus begins a new life."

Vita Nova - Psychology Associates was founded on the 750th anniversary year of Dante's birth.
