I am the owner and director of Cognitive Behavioral Associates of Chicago. We are a group of clinical and health psychologists and therapists who specialize in anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD, insomnia, stress, depression, creating healthy habits/lifestyle, and coping with medical conditions. I personally specialize in climate anxiety and distress. I am currently only taking new clients with climate distress / concern as the primary therapy issue, or those who are on the front lines of the climate crisis (e.g., scientists, activists, teachers. Visit our website to learn more about our practice and view the therapist's profiles.
We use a variety of cognitive behavioral treatments including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion-Focused Therapy, ERP, and other mindfulness-based and positive psychology approaches. They are backed by science and can be fun, creative, and - most importantly - very effective.
We work with individuals to create a very active therapy where you learn new skills and practice them to reduce symptoms and improve your quality of life. This work often includes identifying the things that make life personally meaningful and fulfilling. Therapy can be challenging, but also offers tremendous opportunity for growth and positive change.
