Stephen C. Meyers, M.A., L.C.P.C.
Illinois Licensed Professional Counselor
My therapeutic approach is to provide a safe and supportive environment to explore client concerns and provide practical feedback to help clients effectively address life challenges. I primarily use techniques adapted from psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioral therapy and brief therapy. These techniques combined together create a powerful lens through which we can understand ourselves with more clarity and improve relationships with others.
I have specialized training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), and can assist individuals struggling from sleep concerns. Utilizing evidence-based strategies, I can help clients increase energy during the day, sleep more deeply, and re-initiate sleep after hot flashes, panic attacks or nightmares.
With more than 15 years’ experience as a psychotherapist, I truly enjoy helping people identify issues and make effective change. My clinical focus includes emerging adults, adolescents, couples and individuals. I have enjoyed past experiences working with patients in crisis in hospital settings and more traditional therapy patients in outpatient clinics. I believe change is possible for every person and am an engaged and solution-focused therapist.
I completed my M.A. in clinical psychology at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology with additional coursework in Human Behavior at the University of Chicago. In addition to being a certified CBT-I clinician, I've completed advanced Marriage and Divorce Mediation training at Northwestern University. As an undergraduate, I studied English Literature.
With kindness, caring, compassion and a little bit of humor, I work with people to help build on their strengths and to achieve fullest growth and potential.
What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality.
