Brendan D. Sullivan, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Park Ridge
As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, I value working with patients whom desire more insight, understanding and self-awareness with regards to their identities, relationships, and conflicts. Particularly, I enjoy working with young adults, whom can more readily apply the benefits of psychotherapy as they fashion a more complex, individuated sense of self transitioning into adulthood.
I specialize in work with preteens, adolescents and young adults on a variety of issues and concerns.These years are formative in many ways, and-although turbulent- are rich with potential for growth, and further development of the self.
A large majority of my research/interest involves the process of young adult/emerging adult identity formation, and the barriers to transformation within this stage of life. I consider my understanding of and practice with this stage a unique characteristic of my services.
