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.

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.

Choices! Research shows that we are more likely to change when we have choices. Together we will identify research-based interventions that can help you cope more effectively with the problems you are experiencing and help you feel better. Psychiatrist Irving Yalom said "It's the relationship that heals!" I firmly believe this and will work with you to form a relationship that feels safe - one that helps you tap into your own wisdom and strengths. You will become more familiar with who you are and will allow yourself to live your life more freely and more fully.

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.

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.

Psychotherapy?! What a funny word. I am a psychotherapist, NOT a psycho therapist! :) Others call me a counselor or "the talk lady." People who find me tend to be parents who are looking for support for their children. I use research based therapies that bring empowerment, positive behavior changes, and less frustration and stress. I specialize in youth aged 3-25 who have experienced some level of stress like a divorce, bullying, self-harm, sexting or abuse. Youth nowadays have a different mentality, and I also support parents in understanding and connecting with their children. If you call for a free phone consult and I don't think we are a good match, I will give you multiple referrals.
