Licensed Professional Counselor

I chose the field of counseling because of an inner self-drive to aid others along the way in their life journey. My role as therapist has given me the opportunity to not only teach others about themselves, but has also given me the chance to learn about myself as well. Each client I share the journey with helps strengthen the knowledge and wisdom I possess and gives me the power to turn it around and give it right back to those clients I am helping. I see what I do as a calling and a true gift and it is my duty to fulfill whatever plan is in store for me.

Licensed Psychologist

My approach to therapy is to first listen deeply, and then to be an active partner in our work. I will reflect back to you what I hear, make suggestions about things you can do to change your situation or to feel better, offer different perspectives, and point you in the direction of other resources, such as reading, podcasts, programs, etc. My approach to working with you will be tailored specifically to your situation, to your needs, since no two people are the same. My job is not to judge you, rather I am a professional guide on your journey to greater life satisfaction!

Kelly Diller, LPC, MA

Licensed Professional Counselor

My therapeutic approach is aimed at helping the individual to understand one's life story and the role of life circumstances that shape it, for better resolving personal problems. I integrate a Christian worldview and psychological principles for addressing unresolved issues and facilitating lasting change. I often facilitate EMDR for helping to heal hurt and pain that inhibit happiness and freedom. This technique often shortens the length of therapy.

Sessions are usually weekly at this point and Tyler collaborates with his clients to work on their personal goals.

Lisa Dierdorf, MA, PLPC

Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor

My approach to psychotherapy is Jungian-oriented. Jungian-oriented psychotherapy seeks to help the Client understand "the story beneath the story" by making unconscious material conscious over a period of time. This type of psychotherapy is typically long-term and unfolds over a number of months. The belief is that the more conscious an individual is of the contents of his or her psyche, the more the individual will be able to make choices based out of that consciousness as opposed to unconsciously repeating the same behavior despite efforts to change. My approach can include dream work and active imagination to access unconscious material.

Bekah Larson, LPC, MAC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Psychotherapy is an intimidating word. It makes me think of white-coated clinicians with clip boards that say, “I see,” a lot. “Psychotherapy” is not very warm sounding when it comes to emotions. I prefer the word "Interpersonal". I believe that humans have been wounded through relationship and are seeking how fix that woundedness. I offer counseling that is interpersonal processing via a healthy relationship. In other words: Being known. Being known by another human being has incredible impact on healing the brain and heart. I have personally experienced the power of another person saying, “I actually can’t fix you, but I’m here, in this darkness with you. You're not alone."

Psychotherapy is gaining a better understanding of how one thinks and then seeing how those thoughts make them feel, which then leads to behaviors which are not always helpful. So counseling provides the perfect environment for people who need support through life transitions, a place to process or sort things out, and to gain an objective viewpoint. It also provides a great environment to learn self improvement or assertiveness skills and to learn how to communicate effectively.

For all of us, our past informs and shapes our present and also our future. This can happen in many ways that we do not even realize. If you are having emotional difficulties, it may be helpful for you to look at the ways you are being hindered by unresolved past issues. People often deal with these problems with surface "fixes" that end up being only temporary. I will help you to look not only at these difficult and possibly traumatic root causes, but also your unique strengths that can be used to move you forward and bring meaning to each part of your life.

Psychotherapy is a process by which you examine your thoughts, feelings, actions, and relationships. With the assistance of a skilled professional, you will evaluate where problems exist, or where changes are likely to improve your life satisfaction and overall psychological adjustment. You can then learn how to make the necessary changes that needed to achieve a better life adjustment and satisfaction.

Psychotherapist

Perry Dodge, MS, MA, LPC, CPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Cahokia

Psychotherapy is a form of counseling in which underlying stressors and sources of anxiety become known to the client so that he or she can implement positive solutions. When a person feels too overwhelmed to deal with his or her problems, worries excessively, is constantly on edge, or is experiencing strained relationships, psychotherapy can help tremendously. I enjoy helping people gain greater self-awareness and insight and empowering them with proven tools to achieve healthier relationships, an improved mood, less stress, and more energy and peace.
