About Me

Stephen C. Meyers, M.A., L.C.P.C.

Illinois Licensed Professional Counselor

Marriage and Divorce Mediation Professional

 

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. 

 

With more than 10 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. Affiliation with both Presence Resurrection Hospital and Presence St. Francis Hospital.  I believe change is possible for every person and am an engaged and solution-focused therapist.

 

As a marriage and divorce mediator, I bring the unique perspective of a counselor with years of experience working with families in crisis.  I help individuals end a chapter of their life and contemplate the next steps in a safe and supprotive environment. Ensuring that everyone's best interest is maintained, couples reach settlements through fair and guided negotiation. 

 

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. 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.
