I believe that seeking psychotherapy is healthy and proactive and that we could all benefit from therapy or counseling at different points in our lives. I feel that a good therapeutic relationship is critical to successful therapy and I aim to really understand my clients and develop collaborative relationships. My therapeutic style is warm and empathic and also direct and active. My theoretical orientation is eclectic in that I incorporate therapeutic techniques that I see would be most effective for each client.

All humans suffer with feelings that they re not good enough. It presents differently in each person and the treatment process may look different, but the core struggle is there is all of us. I work with clients to identify where their core belief of inadequacy comes from so that they can be aware when that is stopping them in life. I help clients to be present with themselves and their thoughts so that they can live a life of value and continue moving forward despite their past.

My approach to psychotherapy is based on Compassion, Clarity, and Results. First, you will feel heard. You will be skillfully understood and supported. Second, you will gain new insights about your situation, your options, and yourself. Third, you will learn new strategies to handle the challenges in your life. Strategies that work. My focus is on supporting your strengths, often identifying strengths you did not know you had. This is where your strongest growth will come from. These will become the basis of your enjoyment of life and coping strategies when necessary.

Psychotherapy - for those willing to take the journey - can be one of the most amazing experiences we do in life. When a person gets insight into their own psychological processes, and achieves that understanding of how it all comes together and interacts on a psychological level, it can be really empowering, liberating, and exciting. This can also be a bit scary to try because usually there is a lot going on before someone decides to find a therapist. But any journey starts with that first step - and that first step can be a great step.

I apply Biblical principles with primarily insight oriented psychodynamic psychotherapy techniques to assist clients seeking to obtain deeper growth, change and healing in their lives, whether in their Christian walk, recovery from various addictions, abuse, or other trauma and for those trying to break unhealthy patterns and behaviors in their lives by getting to the root or core issues.

Choosing to start therapy can be hard because we may have many questions? Will I be judged? Will I fit well with this therapist? Will this work? All valid questions that we can address as we begin to work together. We as therapists are here to help and never judge because we find that is not helpful in the therapeutic process. While difficult at first, therapy helps with improving communication to feel understood, heard and supported. New message can be hard to hear at first, however we are here to make the ease into transitions easier.

Child psychotherapy differs from other forms of psychotherapy in that we don't expect children to sit across from us on a couch and talk through their struggles. Instead we find fun, creative, and engaging ways to help children overcome their challenges. You will often find us playing games and creating art projects to help children and teens learn coping skills, communication skills, and more!

"Psychotherapy is the informed and intentional application of clinical methods and interpersonal stances derived from established psychological principles for the purpose of assisting people to modify their behaviors, cognitions, emotions, and/or other personal characteristics in directions that the participants deem desirable" (Norcross, 1990, p. 218-220 ) We use Freudian-based theories, object relations, attachment theories and self-psychology to assist our clients in identifying and understanding the underlying issues that may color their current relationships.

Psychotherapy can be an intimidating term. Society has caused a lot of people to believe that seeking help has negative connotations. In reality, it's a sign of strength that you can acknowledge there's a problem and be brave enough to seek out a solution. Psychotherapy will do just that. I can help you navigate through whatever problems you may be facing and aide you in alleviating your symptoms and overcoming these obstacles.

Charles Hughes, MA, LCPC, DCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Tele-Counselor

In 60301 - Nearby to Chicago Ridge.

I can't tell you what you will get from psychotherapy or counseling. I can only tell you what I got from the hours I spent sitting in the client's chair. I got help with everyday decisions and concerns. I expected that. I also learned how I approach everyday decisions and other problems such as relationships; the patterns that I was following that I didn't know about. Remember that old saying "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." What I really learned in therapy was how to fish, how to see my own patterns, what I was doing that was not making me happy and then blaming it on life, my job, even other people. So, I decided I wanted to pass this on others. I want to teach others to fish.

I create a safe space in which my clients can feel comfortable in talking openly about who they are and the difficulties they are facing. People come to see me because they are having difficulties, but these problems do not define them and they also have incredible strengths. Although I use different therapies and provide my clients with tools they can use, I believe that the relationship between the therapist and the client determines how successful therapy will be. I engage fully with my clients, listening to them carefully and providing them with genuine respect and positive regard.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 60602 - Nearby to Chicago Ridge.

I believe that individuals are resilient and have the capacity to make positive changes in their lives. Psychotherapy, while sounding like a "mysterious" term, is working with an individual to overcome patterns of feelings, thoughts and behaviors which cause you distress, pain or unhappiness. You will find a safe and non-judgmental place to overcome feeling stuck in patterns that stifle your happiness and personal growth. Every person is unique, and I work to understand your individual circumstances, family background, feelings and circumstances. You can experience feeling peaceful, happy and hopeful though our work together.
