Jan Willer, PhD, Psychologist in Chicago
Art + Science + Experience. Adult ADHD? Depression? Anxiety? Teacher? Helping professional? Student? Writer? Artist? Theater professional? Stress--career concerns, medical issues, family problems, difficult childhood experiences, or work? With 25 years of experience, and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, I devote my practice entirely to individual psychotherapy with adults who have these problems. My focus is state-of-the-art treatment for select issues, rather than generalist practice. I recently completed my second book--this one on treating adult ADHD. I welcome individuals of all cultural backgrounds, religions (or lack thereof) and gender identities.
My approach begins with a detailed assessment which helps us understand the contributing factors to your difficulties. My initial goal is helping you feel better soon. Then, over time, we will undertake a careful examination of any habits, thoughts, relationship patterns and past experiences that may contribute to your difficulties.
I can evaluate and document adult ADHD, but I do not perform neuropsychological testing. When you leave a voicemail; I will call within 1 day, or sooner when I can. See my website for more information. I'm accepting new clients now. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Jan Willer's Groups

Facilitator, CHADD Support Group for Adult ADHD

This adult-only group is a free service of the Chicago branch of CHADD (Children and Adults with ADHD). I volunteer my services to facilitate this group. We discuss topics relevant to living with ADHD on a monthly basis. There is ample time for group members to share their personal experience. Anyone with adult ADHD is welcome to drop in and check the group out. Although we hold the group at a church, there is no religious focus to the group; the church donates the space as a community service. The group does not meet in August or December.
