Theresa M. Boutross, LCSW, LCSW, CADC, MA, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Winnetka
Treating the Individual in the Family System is my passion. Supporting parents who struggle with parenting challenges and strengthening their marriages. Helping Children & Adolescents find their voice in that system through , Play Therapy, Sand Tray and Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy techniques. I specialize in the treatment of the Family System when effected by Addictions (Eating Disorder & Cutting), Divorce, Adoption, Parenting ADHD and SPD (Sensory Processing Disorders). I am also trained in Divorce Custody Mediation and Adult Children Of Alcoholics . I take great pride in my ability to join my clients on their journey of Awareness, Acceptance and Action to uncover their best self.
Child & Adolescent Family Treatment is about sustained positive change. Accomplished by identifying external and internal factors which contribute to the Dis-ease of the symptomatic family member and the system as a whole. Together we challenge these established belief patterns and awaken the strength within.
I practice Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy which is a much deeper process than regular hypnotherapy or talk therapy. It is a relaxed state of consciousness to get underneath self-sabotaging patterns of behavior. Get to the Heart of the matter in a shorter period of time.
