Project Description

We are living through unprecedented times. Losses and dislocations abound, threatening our overall sense of identity, agency, and belonging. Time feels shapeless. Through all this, we are doing our best to live lives of meaning, courage, and faith.

Lolan P. Adan joins the Center for Personal Development as a staff therapist. Lolan is a licensed professional counselor (LPC) who works with both individuals and couples. Enriched by decades of client-driven work, Lolan accompanies people experiencing anxiety, depression, loss and grief, life transitions, and other mental health challenges, incorporating mainly person-centered, existentialist, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) modalities in his therapeutic approach.

Lolan earned a Master of Arts in Pastoral Counseling from Loyola University Chicago and did his counseling internship at The Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being in downtown Chicago. More recently, Lolan completed a therapy-counseling residency at The Claret Center in Hyde Park, Chicago.

Born in Manila, Lolan moved to Brooklyn as a child and remains fluent in Tagalog (Filipino).Upon receiving a B.A. in Ethics, Politics & Economics from Yale University, Lolan spent over two decades pursuing a career on Wall Street, living in New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo, and London. After a period of intense discernment, Lolan executed a life pivot, eventually moving to Chicago to begin a new chapter focused on therapy and counseling.

If you are curious about self-exploration, need help managing your mood and anxiety, long for a quiet and safe space, or feel the need to recalibrate, consider reaching out to Lolan.

Lolan aspires to accompany you as you navigate challenges and celebrate triumphs with intention, grace, and hope.
