Cheryl Spielman, MSW, PsyD, Psychologist in Northbrook
Are you a parent concerned about your child's behavioral or emotional well-being? Or an adult struggling with emotional or relationship issues? With 40+ years experience, I have expertise in many issues including depression, anxiety, behavioral problems, divorce as it affects both adults and children. I see my job as helping people feel better about themselves and their lives. I use a highly successful positive approach. I have a particular interest in children and adolescents, and parents are an integral part of this process, as they are the most powerful people in their children's lives. I also am interested in helping the elderly..
I work with children of all ages as well as adults, from babies to senior citizens. Some of the issues I have particular expertise in are Depression, Anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children and adults, Oppositional-Defiant Disorder (ODD), Low Self Esteem, Shyness, and Aging Issues.
As Chicagoland's first trainer in the Nurtured Heart Approach(NHA) to parenting, I teach a remarkable methodology based almost exclusively on positive reinforcement. I help parents learn the skills they need to raise their child's self esteem, increases his or her competency and cooperation, and energize their success.
