Therapy and Counseling in Chicago for Adults, Children, Adolescents, Couples, and Families
Our Approach to Therapy
At Lakeview Center for Psychotherapy, our therapists use a flexible, integrative approach in which we combine therapeutic styles in order to meet our clients’ individual needs.
We integrate three major approaches: psychodynamic, cognitive/behavioral, and experiential.
Relational psychodynamic therapy explores past and present relationships in order to understand the origin of symptoms and patterns and to shift the way we feel about others and ourselves.
Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy, including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, teaches practical skills to provide relief from painful symptoms.
Experiential techniques, such as mindfulness meditation, role playing, play therapy, and art and movement therapy, offer the opportunity to experience our feelings directly, to learn to work with difficult emotions, and to know ourselves at a deeper level.
We believe our integrative approach maximizes our ability to enhance our clients’ inherent strengths and to help them overcome obstacles to happiness and fulfillment.
