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!

One-on-one counseling provides an opportunity for people to openly talk about their thoughts and feelings while being assisted by a professional and caring guide. Clients often seek individual therapy due to some recent stress in their lives, or due to an ongoing conflict they have been unable to resolve alone. Although some people intially worry that talking about themselves will be awkward or uncomfortable, most people find individual sessions enjoyable and growth enhancing. While the client gains greater focus on her/his thoughts and feelings, the therapist acts as a non-judmental guide, helping the individual recognize patterns and finding ways to aviod past problems.

My focus for psychotherapy is eclectic and I use every modality that I find effective. I have been trained in EMDR which is a cutting edge psyhotherapeutic modality to help resolve trauma and foster healing . I also utilize standard technizues such as "talkig to the empty hair" and cognitive behavioral methods. I use anything that I think will help my patients.

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.

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.

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.

Psychotherapist

Mary Lynn Meyers, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Elmwood Park

My approach to psychotherapy begins in working on developing with each of my clients an atmosphere of trust and respect. I believe that making the decision to engage a therapist in order to work on one's particular life challenges, is one of the most healthy choices we can make.! It is a choice for health. My clients benefit from therapy with me by experiencing a quick reduction in their anxiety and a clearer understanding of what they are up against - with themselves, their relationships and their lives. From that place of increased calm and improved self-understanding, my clients can then begin to make thoughtful and productive life choices.

Psychotherapy is a wonderful therapeutic approach for people who are experiencing some struggles with life, are ready to change, set goals, and heal. Encompassing talk therapy and a safe, supportive environment, you can begin to explore and challenge yourself, behaviors and thoughts and move toward recapturing your well being, motivation and insight.

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.

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.

Psychotherapist

Callan Olive, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Elmwood Park

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.
