Jeff Zacharias, ACSW, LCSW, CSAT, CAADC, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Chicago
There are numerous reasons why an individual makes a decision to seek therapy. From my perspective, the key factor in being able to examine your individual reasons is based upon the relationship between yourself and your therapist. I offer a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment in order to explore your individual needs with a commitment to placing the highest priority on your care. We will work collaboratively to identify and address your concerns in order to foster meaningful change in your life. My clinical experience has included working not only with individuals but couples, families and groups.
My background draws on psychodynamic theory with a strength based and solution focused perspective. Primarily, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and have training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). That being said, not all styles work for everyone so we will work together to find what works best for you.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Certified Sex Addiction and Trauma Therapist (CSAT), Certified Advanced Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Counselor (CAADC) and BRI-I (Board Registered Interventionist) with several years of clinical experience in the mental health & addictions field.
