Brendan believes we all have the power to cultivate peace within ourselves and within our chosen family.
Thank you for taking the first step towards a happier, healthier life - you are making the important decision to support yourself. Brendan’s background is in sexual and domestic violence. He believes trauma affects us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. By establishing safety, remembering, and grieving, we are able to reconnect with our current lives. Our mental health has physical effects; Brendan focuses on the damage chronic stress has on the body as well as the mind. Our nervous system cannot absorb the impact of trauma alone. We find healing through our relationships and communities. Together, we find a path forward.

***Currently not taking new clients *** Every person is seeking love and acceptance from one another. Life is meaningful when we connect with others. So, why is it so hard to navigate through relationships? Our culture, family of origin, and social expectations play an essential role in the ways we engage with others and influence our current struggles. We need love and acceptance for relationships to thrive, and so often we find ourselves in relationships where our needs are not being met. During our sessions, we will identify the underlying emotional needs and gain tools to communicate those needs to others.

Each professional in Chicago then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Chicago, or Child Psychologists in Chicago.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Chicago psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Chicago specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs.

How to use my insurance?
