Cristie Fry, LCSW, CADC

Clinical Director of Angie's Place & Therapist
Brief info

As a therapist at Your Story Counseling and the Director of Angie's place, I look forward to working with the brave individuals I serve, those who are deciding to take a step into therapy to improve their overall mental and physical health. From my personal and professional experience, I value what it means to offer my clients a safe space of discretion and compassion. One that allows them to say what they need to say, how they need to say it, and to trust that they can leave it here in absolute confidentiality. My goal is to provide a direct and client-centered environment that includes an open yet goal-oriented plan of direction for healing. I hope that in our time together, you will find the space of being unrestricted to process your life experiences in a way that allows you to build upon your future without carrying the struggles of your past.

My professional experience in law enforcement, narcotics, child sex crimes, and death investigations allows me to offer a unique understanding of responding to traumatic events, crisis exposure, and the professional struggles of working within the public service environment. Currently, a member of the Northern Illinois Critical Incident Stress Management team and coroner's assistant, I've received extensive training in working with trauma, PTSD, Substance Use, Depression, Anxiety, and Grief.

My goal is to help individuals learn about the connection between the mind and body as it relates to trauma to reduce sleep disturbances, increase resilience, improve communication and relationships with others, and manage the effects of repeated traumatic exposure. My relatable approach utilizes humor, honesty, and genuine support for my clients in hopes that we can improve their lives by building therapy into their regular routine. Just as we train with our equipment to stay proficient, protect others, and go home safely, we must train our brains and bodies. Together, we can change how we view receiving therapy and processing the trauma left behind from various exposures.
