Bianka Hardin, Psy.D.
Bianka is a NARM Therapist, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP), Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Professor at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, and owner of Centered Therapy Chicago, LLC. I founded CTC in 2014 with the mission to help children, adolescents, and adults improve their mental health and quality of life. I provide therapy, supervision, and consultation services. I present in the community on issues related to parenting, child abuse prevention, self-care, mindfulness, trauma informed care, trauma stewardship, and cultural issues. I have worked with trauma survivors since 1997 using a relational model of treatment. I felt something was missing in my work with trauma survivors and while exploring various treatment modalities, I learned about Somatic Experiencing and have great value in incorporating the wisdom of the body into my work. I have enjoyed being a body-oriented therapist and wondered how I could merge psychodynamic and relational psychotherapy with SE. I found the answer when I started my NARM training. I am now a NARM therapist and excited to be a part of the NARM training team.
