I find it especially rewarding to work with BIPOC individuals, families, LGBTQ+ individuals, seniors, and disabled persons. My experience in assisting people from all walks of life has taught me how to be a better listener, communicator, and problem-solver. I strive to provide quality care to all my clients, as everyone deserves access to it.

Hi there! My name is Suzy Halpin and I am a Licensed Clinical Therapist with a master's degree in social work. I am based in Chicago and work with clients statewide via telehealth. I work with adults, 18 years and above. My practice is focused on helping individuals manage anxiety, mood disorders, and trauma. I offer client-centered services, and therefore, I use a variety of evidence-based theories in my practice. Some approaches that have worked well in the past include cognitive behavioral, acceptance, and psycho-educational therapies.

My goal is to work alongside those seeking to process past experiences, address current life stressors and attain an overall improved quality of life. Through building strong therapeutic relationships, clients are able to successfully reach their identified goals and find healing. Clients identify the area in which they would like to process and I work alongside them at their pace and comfort level. I believe that the therapeutic alliance is the most important part of therapy and I emphasize building that relationship so that a successful outcome is achieved.

Often, counseling focuses on the symptoms of emotional struggles and never addresses the root causes. My deep interest in people, problems, and processes has allowed me to recognize the complex patterns of individuals, life experiences, family, trauma, relationships and how these have influenced the way clients see themselves and the world around them. With grace, understanding, and support, I seek to help clients understand how their past has shaped them, discover how ensnaring behaviors began (and continue) and then to restore dignity, well-being, and relationships.

When human beings experience trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. Often we seek therapy when the support systems we have and the ways of coping that we normally use are not enough. Perhaps you have noticed changes in how you sleep, your appetite, mood, or how you engage with your world. A variety of paths lead us to struggle and we all have times in our lives when we need a little more or a little different support. Finding a therapist who is a good fit for you can be a helpful part in regaining balance.

Online Therapists

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
