Daniel Ross, Psychiatric Nurse  in Chicago
Verified by Psychology Today
Psychiatric Nurse, MSN, RN, PMHNP
“It is not uncommon to find ourselves somehow off track and disconnected from who we thought we were. Our relationships may seem stuck and deeply unsatisfying. We feel lost and unsure of our place in the world. This may be accompanied by feelings of depression, anxiety or as physical problems. It can be experienced as a deep alienation, sadness and suffering. When we are called to make a change and resist, it can cause havoc in our lives; this can happen whether the change is in the outer circumstances of our life, our inner attitude, our world view, or some combination.

Betsy Nettleton, Psychologist  in Chicago
“The choice to begin therapy is rarely easy. I know how difficult it can be to open up to another person about feelings of depression, anxiety, anger, guilt, relationship concerns, loss and shame. I know it takes courage and vulnerability to talk about problems out loud and make them "real." In our therapy, we will go at your pace. We will carefully and gently explore both your current problems as well as the deeper, underlying patterns that contribute to your emotional struggles and keep you stuck and unfulfilled.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW
“Do you know what you need to do or think, but still can't do it? Do you understand how to move forward but find yourself stuck nonetheless? Or, maybe you have medically unexplained health problems or doctors telling you it's in your head? These are some of the reasons people seek psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I have been practicing psychotherapy for over 20 years in various settings including a university student counseling center and public mental health clinics for the seriously mentally ill and have effectively worked with clients struggling with conditions ranging from adjustment disorders (reactions to stress) to schizophrenia.

Patricia McMahon, Psychologist  in Chicago
“Clients who are interested in strengthening their personal, social, and work relationships find me helpful. Looking to grow psychologically and emotionally, these individuals seek to better understand how their relationship style is intertwined with their feelings, thinking, behavior, and career achievements. Depression, anxiety, anger management, and self-expression are some of the issues that we typically explore in counseling. Thus, my clients seek counseling as an important opportunity for personal growth, present with various questions and issues critical to them, and may come from any ethnicity, culture, educational level, religion, or sexual orientation.

Ellen S Katz, Marriage & Family Therapist  in Northbrook
Verified by Psychology Today
Marriage & Family Therapist, MS, LMFT
“I've always sought mentors to guide me through life's trials, and luckily found many along the way. Now I pass on the sum of their wisdom along with my own. Therapy, a process of healing, happens through shared presence and expanding awareness. It's a safe place where truth can be expressed and pain transformed. We typically cope with pain through distraction, intoxication or denial. Learning to be emotionally sober we can heal our relationships - with ourselves and others. "Process" addictions, loss, trauma and shame are respectfully addressed. Empowerment, clarity, healing and comfort with emotional intimacy are consequences.

I believe that these factors together play an integral role in the promotion of mental and emotional well-being.
