Specializing in High Sensitivity




Candy Crawford, MSW, LCSW, is a therapist, educator, and advocate for highly sensitive people.
She maintains a private practice in the Chicago area, where she specializes in Sensory Processing Sensitivity and facilitates workshops and retreats.

I am passionate in using the therapeutic relationship as a powerful tool for personal transformation. For those willing to engage in the work that therapy invites, I am confident individuals can experience increased levels of personal fulfillment, purpose, and internal freedom.

My goal is to facilitate the healing process and help clients access their own strength and courage. I enjoy working with individuals who desire more for themselves and consequently, their lives.
