Kaleidoscope Mental Health, PLLC

Sarah Malak, MSW, LCSW, Registered Play Therapist™, EMDR Certified Therapist

We are more than the sum of our parts, as the saying goes.

Our lives are made up of little bits and pieces of our stories, our families and friends, our experiences, our hopes and dreams, successes and failures. Kind of like a kaleidoscope.

All these parts, good and bad, make us who we are. If you’re struggling to be happy with who you are or how things are going in your life, I’m here to help. Sometimes we have problems in the here and now, and sometimes old problems continue to haunt us.

Together, we can make positive changes.



I provide telehealth (online therapy) services only. I do not currently have a brick-and-mortar establishment. 

Telehealth takes place over a secure platform where we can see and hear one another as if we were in the office, but you can be anywhere (in the state of Illinois, as long as you're not driving!) for our sessions. 

I am licensed in the state of Illinois, and as such, I am only able to meet with clients when they are also in Illinois. 

Areas of Expertise

  • Play Therapy

  • Trauma Therapy (EMDR) 

  • Anxiety and Mood Concerns

  • Attachment

My Approach



The most important ingredient to effective therapy is a strong therapeutic relationship, where you feel safe, understood, and supported. To that end, the beginning of therapy aims to meet that need. You wouldn't want to wear uncomfortable shoes--you need a therapist you are comfortable with as well. It's just that important. 

I am client-centered and apply a number of different therapeutic modalities to help you meet your goals.
