Psychotherapist

Melissa Sanchez, LCPC, BC-DMT

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

The process of engaging in psychotherapy can be a rich and rewarding experience. With a kind, engaging and inquisitive mind, my approach to therapy is based in humanistic, client-centered and existential philosophies. I truly believe that each person has within them the power to heal through thoughtful exploration of emotional patterns, spiritual concerns and resulting experiences. While focusing on present-moment concerns, the past will arise and show its influence. We will work together to piece out what is necessary to explore but not dive into your entire past. Sometimes this is necessary, sometimes it is not. I encourage each person to work with me in guiding their healing process.

Tarah Galloway, LCPC, ATR

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Registered Art Therapist

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

I believe that the therapy process should be one in which the therapist and client work TOGETHER to achieve the client's vision. The relationship should be built on trust and mutual respect. I will offer guidance and recommendations if you request it, but will never tell you how you should or should not live your life. I believe you're an expert on your own life. Together, we will work to determine what you want from life, what's getting in the way, and what to do to help you feel better and let go of old behaviors or thought patterns that don't serve you anymore.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Using the Adlerian approach, I focus on you as a whole, because I believe that people are more than a diagnosis or an issue. We start by reviewing your family and past history to discover any patterns. We focus on your involvement with your community and how to gain a better sense of belonging. Additionally, we will also address how your thoughts reflect your actions in past and current events to approach future situations more confidently.

Katie Bogacki, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

I do not subscribe to only one modality of psychotherapy. As we are all individuals, I believe in an individual approach to each client and pull from different theories to assist in greater life satisfaction and fulfillment. My office is a space that I find great peace in and hope that my clients do as well. Entering psychotherapy can be an intimidating experience for some and my goal is to ensure a safe space, where clients are not judged for their emotions, and learn how to accept themselves more fully.

Tompkins and Associates, Psy.D. and Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologists

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

As child/adolescent/family psychologist, we take a developmental and family systems view to treatment. Not only do we assess the issue brought to treatment, we also look at what needs to be right in the patients life that is not there and we work with our patients to help make that happen. Our belief is that symptoms arise when development gets stuck and our job is to help jump start that personal development again. Whether you are a child, adolescent, a family or woman, we are all under development. Our patients leave treatment feeling stronger, empowered and in control of their families and lives again! They move forward knowing how to solve problems on their own.

Teri Murphy, MS, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

During my 20 plus years of being in the field of Psychotherapy I have never taken the therapeutic relationship for granted. It is a unique, growth producing experience for my clients, one like no other. You as the client are deeply understood, listened to and highly respected. I offer both solution-oriented and indepth therapy for my clients. Sometimes there is an answer within the first session! Most often, however, Psychotherapy is a process where each person has their own time frame for growth. It's important to be with a Therapist that feels like a good fit I offer an intitial session to discuss what your hopes and goals are for therapy. I look forward to hearing from you.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor / Therapist

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.

Psychotherapist

Taylor Newendorp, M.A., LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

I take a Positive Psychology/Strengths-Based approach to all of my work. People often lose their sense of self when they are struggling with any type of Anxiety, Depression, major life stressors, relationship difficulties, or health issues (including Eating Disorders and Addiction). All of these things cloud our judgment and interfere with our ability to function as well as we might otherwise. Using both Cognitive-Behavioral and Narrative Therapy techniques, I can help you increase your level of self-awareness and separate your true self from the problems currently impacting you. This will allow you to regain your confidence and move forward with your life as you would like it to be.
