Psychotherapist

Denise Ambre, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Lake Bluff

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.

Clinical Psychologist

My training and my practice have all involved psychotherapy in its different manifestations. I first learned the Reflective Approach from Carl Rogers, PhD at the University of Chicago. I then learned more analytic therapies, brief therapies and other skills such as hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing, and Biofeedback. Some of these techniques can be only used in the office.

Psychotherapist

Taylor Newendorp, M.A., LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Lake Bluff

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.

Psychotherapist

Deb Norton, MS LCPC NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Lake Bluff

This is, to me, the most in-depth therapy that I provide. It requires a relationship with the client. And a level of trust that being in that space together is a safe place. It mandates a great history, an accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan that drives the process forward. Most psychotherapy leaves clients feeling tired afterwards because it challenges them to deal with their feelings, allowing the insights to come and the revelations to incur. Psychotherapy is the utmost marvel of my work. And the ultimate healing for most clients who engage in it and allow the process to work.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

I believe our current struggles often have a link to past struggles. I work with clients to understand the both/and. What are the current challenges and struggles that you want to improve or change and in doing that how is it link to the past. In other words what previous distortions or hurts are causing the person current struggles and how to they build current health to grow and heal from previous hurts.

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.

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.

Psychotherapist

Melissa Sanchez, LCPC, BC-DMT

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist

Within driving distance of Lake Bluff

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.
