Robert E Manrique, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Chicago
"We fear things in proportion to our ignorance of them." - Christian Nevell Bovee. My unique approach begins with the focus of increasing my client's knowledge of the mind and brain. Given that our brains are built to change in response to experience, there is a new optimism regarding the brain's ability to remain flexible and to benefit from enriching environments throughout life. My goal is to help you uncover your true potential, and have full freedom, self-expression and a life you love.
I am an active, experienced, compassionate therapist with a sense of humor and a unique appreciation of the range of human diversity and the common human needs for attention, acknowledgement and achievement. I have respect for client's struggle to find joy, purpose, relaxation, recovery, and positive connection with others.
I work with issues of depression, anxiety, trauma, family issues and grief. I have experience with clients struggling to overcome past traumas. I use a holistic approach and also trained in the use of EMDR and Neurofeedback therapy, which are proven effective for the treatment of trauma and other health issues..
