Seeking Mental Health Treatment from a Clinical Psychologist
There are a number of reasons people seek mental health support from a therapist, like a therapist in Palatine, IL, or a clinical psychologist. Mental health issues that are commonly treated by a professional can range in severity from mild behavioral problems to severe clinical issues that provide a higher level of treatment.
What is a Clinical Psychologist?
Clinical psychologists work with patients to assess and treat psychological problems that they may be experiencing. A psychologist will work with treatment teams that can include other medical and mental health professionals, service providers and family members to develop an approach that works best for the client. We will accomplish this through working with team members by:
- Diagnosis and assessment of psychological disorders
- Consultation with professionals
- Gathering information to better inform therapeutic approaches
Through our strong partnership with the state, mental health professionals, and service providers in the community we provide a holistic approach to mental health treatment.
Common Types of Disorders Treated
Our clinical psychologists can provide a variety of treatment approaches based on your specific needs. We have experience in treating a number of mental health disorders, some of the most common include:
- Personality Disorders (Paranoid Personality Disorder)
- Bipolar Disorder
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Borderline Personality Disorder
- Clinical Depression

Mental illness can feel isolating and shameful for people. We can help break down the barriers so that you can begin the process of healing. Treating disorders from mental illness is not a quick fix; it can take years of treatment and symptom management for a person. We can provide you with caring, dedicated and experienced professionals who will consistently provide you with the therapeutic care you require. We will partner with other medical professionals and psychiatrists as needed so that your care is streamlined and comprehensive to your needs.
Common Therapeutic Approaches
When looking for a psychologist, it will be important to find a professional who feels like a good match for you. You will want to find someone you connect with and approaches treatment in a way that aligns with your personality and treatment needs. Here are some common approaches to treatment that are available to people in need of therapy.
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
- Holistic Therapy such as guided imagery
- Humanistic Therapy
- Psychoanalysis Therapy (Freudian Approach)
It is important to note that there is no one size fits all approach to therapy, depending on your treatment needs, it may make sense to incorporate more than one approach.
Our esteemed psychologists can provide you with the services you require to begin addressing a variety of issues that you may be experiencing. It can be challenging to begin addressing trauma you may have experienced, familial issues and the like. We often can become so immersed in our daily lives that it can feel hard to make the time to begin to put in the work it takes to heal. With our help, we can support you in a safe and relaxing environment to begin the therapeutic process.
