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.

Ryan J Higgins's Groups

DBT Skills Training - Tuesdays @ 6 pm

This group meets every Tuesday at 6 pm. This group will be starting INTERPERSONAL EFFECTIVENESS on September 5th. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has been shown to be an effective treatment for a number of issues including anxiety, depression, addiction, impulsivity, and relationship problems. DBT is different than many other forms of treatment because it emphasizes learning and building concrete skills, coping mechanisms, and tools to manage problems in your life. The goal of the treatment is to help build skills to increase your effectiveness in managing difficult emotions and situations while also learning to identify behaviors that promote stability and health.
