As a result of these difficult times, it is more important than ever to take good psychological care of ourselves and our family! Therefore, our experienced clinicians now provide teletherapy services so that you can get the help you need from the comfort of your own home. We do plan on returning to in person practice soon, when it is safe to do so, at our Tinley Park office. We will keep you updated!
We have been helping people since 1990. We believe that effective help starts with a good client—treatment provider relationship.
Then, our treatment focus involves helping you to best address the reasons why you have decided to come to therapy now.
This often involves providing skills training to help you to best manage the thoughts, feelings and behavior that cause you misery and distress. Skills training can also help you to more effectively deal with stress, past trauma, attentional problems, and family/relationship issues.
Homework is often given for you to do between sessions to help support the skills you are learning. The overall goal of our treatment is to help you to effectively manage the issues that you are experiencing so you can create the life you want.
At the first session, you will experience a thorough intake. Then a customized treatment plan will be created.
Sometimes, psychological or neuropsychological testing will be used to get more information if needed.
