I utilize family systems, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness and psychodynamic theory in my practice and seek to develop a collaborative relationship with my clients.
I focus on helping clients discover core strengths and achieve greater self-awareness. I believe that when negative patterns are identified, clients can begin the process of uncovering root causes of dissatisfaction. In a safe and non-judgmental environment, clients can learn new tools and make conscious choices to create healthy relationships and improve overall well-being. I look holistically at the mind-body connection and encourage healthy lifestyle changes along with mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

While I tailor my work with each client individually, my general approach to therapy is integrative, drawing on psychodynamic /relational, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness techniques.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and work with emerging adults and adults across the life span experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship concerns, women's issues, stress, and self-esteem concerns, among many other difficulties. I believe people come to therapy for all kinds of reasons, often with a common theme of being stuck in some way. It is a privilege to guide people on a journey of becoming "unstuck," helping them cultivate a path of healing, wellness, growth and greater self-understanding.

My coursework and clinical experience at Northwestern University, coupled with my undergraduate studies in the "Great Books" program at the University of Notre Dame, have led me to adopt a multifaceted and holistic approach to mental health care. This approach allows me to tailor my work with clients to their specific needs and goals.

deBoer brings to his practice a breadth of experience in a variety of therapeutic contexts, together with advanced training in psychodynamic therapeutic approaches.
Life is difficult even under the best of circumstances. You may be seeking therapy in order to overcome some blocks to important goals in your relationships or career. Oftentimes these blocks are the result of using ways of coping that once were essential in dealing with important figures and problems from earlier in life, but which now get in the way of positive and healthy emotional and interpersonal functioning. Therapy is an excellent way of using a helping relationship to identify these coping styles, and ultimately to develop more effective ways of relating to yourself and to others.

Although each person's experiences provide a unique starting point for therapy, I tend to conduct psychotherapy using an empathic process informed by psychodynamic , interpersonal, and cognitive approaches.
(I currently am unable to take new patients). I work with individuals who feel anxious, sad, or are having difficulty in relationships, work, creativity, or with their physical well-being. I have worked extensively with individuals of many ages and backgrounds, including young adult, adult, and older adult men and women whose concerns surround issues of identity, grief/loss, low self-confidence, and painful inhibitions in success or fulfillment. I also work with individuals who are struggling with the effects of medical illness.

I primarily have a psychodynamic , self psychological approach but borrow from many other treatment forms.
I have a warm, accepting, supportive and understanding style. I believe that it is possible for any of us to get "stuck" in a thought or behavior that does not always suit our best interest. Together we can discover what these are for you, (your relationship, your work life, etc.) and work on ways of approaching and viewing things differently.

While my training from Northwestern University is psychodynamic , I implement a diverse approach to psychotherapy recognizing that one model does not fit all.
Ever experience panic attacks, but have no history of anxiety? Or do you feel sad, angry or irritated at everything, but don't know why? Do you think: "Something's wrong with me"; "I'm not good/smart/thin enough"; I'm a failure"; "Why do I keep making wrong choices". Maybe you're feeling stuck, trapped, and/or lost? If any of this sounds familiar, I can help you to make sense of what's happening, and develop strategies to better manage your life. As you've noticed, it not only affects you; it impacts your relationships with others.

In my practice, I incorporate Relational Psychodynamic Theory, Motivational Interviewing, Relational Cultural Feminist Theory, and third wave Cognitive Behavioral Therapy methods.
Our authentic connections to one another sustain us as human beings. Often past harm or invalidation make us further disconnected from ourselves and each other. By moving beyond binaries created and sustained by capitalism and other constructs of oppression, I pathologize systems and not people. I work to create an environment that affirms a person’s complete humanity with a sense of compassion and free from judgments or imposed expectations. When we establish secure and affirming relationships, we have the ability to embrace our authentic selves and the numerous possibilities of transformation.

My therapeutic style is integrative and draws heavily from psychodynamic and existential approaches, while incorporating cognitive-behavioral strategies.
Many people seek therapy upon realizing that familiar ways of thinking, feeling, behaving, and relating to others have become unhelpful or even stifling. Maybe it’s difficult to sustain meaningful relationships, to confront anxiety-provoking situations, or to cultivate a positive, valued sense of yourself. Maybe you neglect yourself, play out self-defeating patterns, or invalidate your own feelings. There are innumerable ways that emotional pain shows up in our lives. However, it can be difficult to identify, confront, and work through this on your own, or to make changes that allow you to thrive. ​

My approach to therapy is informed by psychodynamic principles and seeks to hold the incredible variation of emotional life with committed attention and engagement.
I work with each person to help them uncover and articulate their capacities for commitments to themselves, their worlds, and their own actions and thoughts. I offer a non-judgmental and collaborative environment where our conversations will help you to recognize how you find meaning and wonder in your life. An exploration of each person’s singular resonance, enjoyment, distress, challenges, and attachments can lead to transformative experiences in showing up in the world anew.

Though I incorporate evidence based practice, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and other treatments into therapy; my primary treatment model is cognitive behavioral therapy.

I understand and I can help. I have experience in providing individual, couples, and group psychotherapy services largely to minorities, LGBTQ individuals, adults, and at risk youth dealing with mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression. While this list is not all-inclusive, I also have extensive experience dealing with substance abuse/recovery, harm reduction, trauma, and chronic illnesses.

I have direct clinical experiences and training in psychodynamic therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).
I have had the privilege of working with adults of all ages and various identities. I am passionate about supporting my clients facing loss, identity development, anxiety, depression, trauma, and life transitions. Sometimes life catapults us into a new chapter - filled with both challenge and promise - that we may not have asked for. As these moments accumulate over time, we find meaning and change through fully experiencing the present and deliberately reflecting on the past. Therapy with me encourages both. My aim is for you to have a space to show up wholly as you, however that may shift from session to session.

I am a graduate of the University of Chicago SSA, and responsibly integrate humanistic, psychodynamic , feminist relational and behavioral theories, as well as neuroscientific thought to meet the diverse needs of my clients.
Self-exploration can be an intimidating task. I have the honor of accompanying my clients on such journeys, and collaborate with clients to develop a fuller understanding of themselves. I provide an honest, respectful and non-judgmental space for such reflection, in which we can sort through the elements of life that are difficult, whether that is a result of anxiety, depression, trauma, questions of gender or sexuality, grief, body issues, life transitions, illness or other difficulties. Through such work, I hope to foster authentic growth, change and lasting relief for my clients.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Loop, Chicago, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
