Your once amazing relationship feels so hard but it doesn’t have to be. You have a deep desire to be your best self for you and your partner but it feels like regardless of your best efforts you continue to struggle. It used to feel so easy but you now find yourself on edge and agitated more often than not. When you try to share your feelings they often come out wrong or your partner just doesn’t get it which leaves you wishing you hadn’t said anything at all. It’s getting harder to engage on the smallest things.

Transitions in life such as birth, illness, death, divorce, aging, or career change, can be exciting, but also, devastating, confusing or scary. There can be a variety of reactions to these challenges, and at times having to make choices can leave you feeling stuck or depressed, and unable to make a decision. My passion is guiding women through these life transitions with compassion, empathy, and support. As an Oncology Social Worker I have learned how important it is to get to the heart of an issue and work toward resolutions, skills I learned working with patients experiencing life threatening illnesses.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Illinois are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Illinois then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

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 Illinois, or Child Psychologists in Illinois.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Illinois 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 Illinois 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. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
