Jean Garrity Arnold, MS, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Palatine
I am the founder of The Palatine Center for Behavioral Health and have over 12 years experience as an individual, marriage and family therapist. A graduate of Northwestern University's-- The Family Institute, I am currently serving as a private practitioner. I strive to offer hope to couples who are struggling with the aftermath of infidelity, the stress of child-rearing or the complications of financial strife or family of origin issues. I have extensive experience treating mood disorders, anxiety, and emotional dysregulation with empirically-supported techniques combined with compassion and insight, to offer each client a personalized experience.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist and have level II EMDR training (an effective method for processing past trauma). I use cognitive behavioral techniques as well as Dialectical Behavior therapy and insight therapy. I have extensive experience working in inpatient and partial hospital mental health programs.
My practice is limited to clients 16 years and older but The Palatine Center for Behavioral Health also offers child and adolescent therapy by highly qualified therapist. We specialize in the treatment of anxiety-based school refusal. We are BCBS PPO or out of network providers.
