Sarah Cheung, LCPC


Sarah Cheung is a compassionate counselor who values, empathizes, and respects the commitment to grow in therapy. Sarah's counseling is grounded in a Humanistic framework, which is based on the belief that individuals already possess the qualities needed to flourish. She believes in helping clients find their individual strengths and abilities to navigate transitions, deal with challenges, achieve goals, and find contentment in who they are. In addition, Sarah brings a solution-focused and strength-based mindset, along with a practice of caring confrontation to help her clients discover internal motivation and maximize their potential.

Sarah joined the Chicago Counseling Services team after working for six years as a counselor at an urban school with a diverse student body. She has also worked as an adjunct professor for graduate students in counseling. Sarah recently obtained her LCPC license and is working toward her Ph.D. in Educational Policy at the University of Illinois. Sarah's research focuses on how to incorporate more social emotional supports within school systems to help marginalized students. Her work and passions have given her experience in working with a wide range of ages and needs but she has a passion for working with students, concerned parents, educators, assault/abuse victims, adults whose childhood hurts and traumas affect their present lives, and clients who want to learn to have hard but fruitful conversations with loved ones, authority figures, family members, etc. 

In addition to her expertise, Sarah is devoted, thoughtful, and loves to celebrate her clients’ progress in their individual journeys.
