We hear from a lot of our clients that Bridgeview therapists are different from other therapists they have worked with before. We think this is because of our commitment to seeing each patient for who they are as a whole, multifaceted person and working together to get them to a good place. Since we were founded in 2010, Bridgeview has evolved to serve the diverse people in our community and meet needs that other mental health services aren’t addressing. We’ve recruited a team of culturally diverse therapists in Naperville, IL, and we regularly do in-house professional development to work on trauma sensitivity and awareness of mental health challenges among specific populations.
Our founder, Netali Chopra, LCPC, is an ovarian cancer survivor, and understand that cancer and other chronic medical conditions impact not only the physical body but the cognitive, emotional, spiritual and social aspects of an individual’s life. My own illness has shaped the work we do at Bridgeview because I was able to openly share my experience with our staff. We understand that body, mind and spirit are deeply connected and that treating the body is only one step in healing the person.
At Bridgeview, you’re not just a number or a diagnosis. We want you to feel validated and heard so our work together will make a lasting impact on your life. Keep reading to get to know our Naperville counseling team and see if one of them is right for you.
“The most curative factor in therapy is the relationship between the client and the therapist. Therefore, I strive to create a safe environment where you can feel safe to explore both past and present events that are holding you back from attaining your dreams.”
