Licensed Clinical Psychologist

I am trained in a variety of traditional and non-traditional treatment methods that I integrate in a holistic approach to psychotherapy. While grounded in scientifically proven methods such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I also integrate with treatment methods such as Positive Psychology which emphasizes the development of strengths over targeting weaknesses, and hypnotherapy approaches that incorporate subconscious and body-based processes.

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 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 helps you to tap into your inner-most feelings and subconscious thoughts that control social/emotional behavior. Psychotherapy techniques will help you to identify and cope with challenges that keep you from realizing the life you idealize. Therapeutic techniques may include, but are not limited to, the client expressing any thoughts and feelings without censorship (free association) or analyzing dreams for meaning. In doing so, the client will gain self-awareness necessary to promote healthy personality and behavior changes.

Sharyn Ingrum, Psy.D.

LCPC

Therapy is built on the trust and openness between a client and the therapist. Clients must know that the therapist will hold their confidences in the most secure way possible. Teens must believe that they can talk about whatever their issues are without fear that their parents will find out what those issues are. I am a reality oriented therapist and tend to "tell it like it is". This approach is not for everyone but certainly gets to the heart of issues more quickly.

Janet Wichmann, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Psychotherapy is a process of doing more in depth, "intra-psychic" work. This therapy is used by many who want to create deep and lasting personal change in their life. It's not only thoughts or behaviors or crises that are addressed. It may be about deep unhappiness in life; sexual identity; a sense of emptiness; dreams; long ago traumas or loss. The enduring benefit is a greater self understanding and new confidence in becoming a more authentic, genuine self in the world.

Psychotherapist

Callan Olive, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Downers Grove

I practice a form of psychotherapy called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (or ACT). It is based on the idea that thoughts and feelings are just a normal part of life and something we don't have much control over. Because of that, we need to spend less energy trying to control our thoughts and feelings and more energy working on our actual behavior and values. I will help you learn to overcome the difficult thoughts and feelings that come up for you while you pursue the things that are most valuable and meaningful to you.

Processing and talking about emotions and thought processes is how change and healing begins for it actually changes neuro pathways in the brain. I have been providing a safe place for clients to process through their darkest fears since 1996. My clients describe me as direct and to the point, yet compassionate and easy to open up to. They also find that I am able to take the complexities in life and make them easy to understand so that they can start making changes to get back to the life they desire.
