Dennis Nguyen, LCSW

I’m Dennis Nguyen, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Chicago. I earned my Masters in Social Work at Grand Valley State University in Michigan and worked there for a few years before moving to Illinois in summer of 2017. I’ve done a little bit of everything, including refugee/unaccompanied minor foster care therapy, therapy with high risk Medicaid children and their families, emergency room psychiatric assessments, hospice, and hospital discharge planning.  I hope that my diverse skill set can help my clients grow.

I have a strong interest in men’s issues.  Many men struggle with how cultural norms of masculinity interfere with their ability to be happy and healthy individuals.  Some challenges include physical intimacy, asking for help, expressing emotions, body image, and relationship issues.  My hope is to help men of all types grow more comfortable with themselves.

I have a passion for LGBTQIA needs.  As the world rapidly changes, more folks are finding new ways to express their gender, sexuality, and identity.  Transitions of all kinds can be difficult, so my goal is to help folks figure out ways to manage these changes as they grow.
