Psychotherapist

Lori Oge, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Columbia, IL

I chose the field of counseling because of an inner self-drive to aid others along the way in their life journey. My role as therapist has given me the opportunity to not only teach others about themselves, but has also given me the chance to learn about myself as well. Each client I share the journey with helps strengthen the knowledge and wisdom I possess and gives me the power to turn it around and give it right back to those clients I am helping. I see what I do as a calling and a true gift and it is my duty to fulfill whatever plan is in store for me.

Tyler Sparks provides encouraging, yet challenging psychotherapy in a comfortable setting. He listens well and his care for his clients is evident in both challenge and understanding. Sessions begin with an initial assessment that gives Tyler a good feel for not only the concern you're bringing to therapy but also a broad background of information. Sessions are usually weekly at this point and Tyler collaborates with his clients to work on their personal goals.

Psychotherapist

Sandra A. Shachar, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Columbia, IL

My approach to therapy is to first listen deeply, and then to be an active partner in our work. I will reflect back to you what I hear, make suggestions about things you can do to change your situation or to feel better, offer different perspectives, and point you in the direction of other resources, such as reading, podcasts, programs, etc. My approach to working with you will be tailored specifically to your situation, to your needs, since no two people are the same. My job is not to judge you, rather I am a professional guide on your journey to greater life satisfaction!

Licensed Professional Counselor

Sometimes life is just plain difficult. A relationship with a counselor can often help individuals discover a new perspective or learn ways of interacting better with others. Often referred to as "talk therapy", psychotherapy can help people gain a new sense of self for effectual change. If you're experiencing difficulty with your feelings or are in the midst of hard circumstances, please call. I have improved the quality of life for many clients and would love to work with you, as well. You may also find some helpful articles at: www.judykoehlertherapist.com.

Psychotherapist

Kelly Diller, LPC, MA

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Columbia, IL

My therapeutic approach is aimed at helping the individual to understand one's life story and the role of life circumstances that shape it, for better resolving personal problems. I integrate a Christian worldview and psychological principles for addressing unresolved issues and facilitating lasting change. I often facilitate EMDR for helping to heal hurt and pain that inhibit happiness and freedom. This technique often shortens the length of therapy.

Psychotherapist

Mike Diller, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Columbia, IL

My approach reflects the importance of developing a trusting client-therapist relationship, while instilling hope for finding solutions for permanent change. I integrate both Christian principles and psychology in helping the individual improve decision-making, build self-confidence, and change one's perspective of the problem situation. Key concepts that I incorporate in session include: collaborative problem-solving, decision-making based on personal values, cognitive behavioral skill development, and practicing solutions for improving relationships.

Psychotherapist

Lisa Dierdorf, MA, PLPC

Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Columbia, IL

My approach to psychotherapy is Jungian-oriented. Jungian-oriented psychotherapy seeks to help the Client understand "the story beneath the story" by making unconscious material conscious over a period of time. This type of psychotherapy is typically long-term and unfolds over a number of months. The belief is that the more conscious an individual is of the contents of his or her psyche, the more the individual will be able to make choices based out of that consciousness as opposed to unconsciously repeating the same behavior despite efforts to change. My approach can include dream work and active imagination to access unconscious material.

Psychotherapist

Katie Kibort, MA, LCPC, NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Columbia, IL

Psychotherapy is a process by which you examine your thoughts, feelings, actions, and relationships. With the assistance of a skilled professional, you will evaluate where problems exist, or where changes are likely to improve your life satisfaction and overall psychological adjustment. You can then learn how to make the necessary changes that needed to achieve a better life adjustment and satisfaction.

Psychotherapist

Karen Becker, MSW, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Columbia, IL

For all of us, our past informs and shapes our present and also our future. This can happen in many ways that we do not even realize. If you are having emotional difficulties, it may be helpful for you to look at the ways you are being hindered by unresolved past issues. People often deal with these problems with surface "fixes" that end up being only temporary. I will help you to look not only at these difficult and possibly traumatic root causes, but also your unique strengths that can be used to move you forward and bring meaning to each part of your life.
