Ryan J Higgins, LCPC, Counselor in Chicago
I have been providing individual and group psychotherapy since 2007. Since completing a graduate degree in Clinical Psychology, I have also completed post-graduate programs at Northwestern University and the University of Chicago. I consider myself to offer a dynamic approach to therapy that integrates multiple theories and techniques in order to provide the most appropriate support to those who work with me.
My experience includes the provision of treatment to those who have symptoms of anxiety and depression, PTSD, experiences of suicidality, difficulty with concentration and motivation and those who are dealing with symptoms of grief and loss. I also work with adolescents and their families to address other difficulties unique to this life transition.
Depending on the day, appointment times are offered in the morning before work hours, the afternoon or in the evening. If you would like to work with me or with one of the other therapists at our office, please give me a call directly.
