Overview

About DLA Psychology Center:

DLA is composed of a talented team of Chicago psychologists and social workers who specialize in grief, loss, illness, and all of the complexities that come with these life changes.

We are committed to your healing and well-being. This means each of us participates in regular continuing education in order to provide you with the most up-to-date, evidence-based treatment methods in order to support you in every facet of your health — physical, emotional, and mental.

We prioritize diversity, honoring the intersection of each person’s unique backgrounds and identities and what that means for them. Everyone is welcome at DLA regardless of age, disability, religious and spiritual beliefs, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin. We are also proud to be an ADA-compliant practice.

Services

Therapy for Grief & Loss

We support those experiencing grief and loss by offering a safe place to grieve, heal, and discover what’s next. Here, you don’t have to have it all together. You don’t have to be “moved on”: If you simply need a place to be sad, you’ll find it here. Get the support you need to regain your direction and hope for the future.

Therapy for Medical Conditions

We support those with acute, chronic, and terminal illnesses and help them navigate their diagnosis and the best next steps. You can freely process this massive life change with someone who understands the complexities of the medical system and its impacts on your mental and emotional health.

Therapy for Chronic Illness

Methodology

There is no “right” way to heal.

The way you process what you are going through may look very different than what you expected or have seen in others, and that’s okay. We are equipped to meet you right where you are and offer a safe, non-judgmental place to regain direction and overcome the stress, anxiety, or depression you feel today.

How We Support You:

We approach therapy without prescribed agendas, because we know your journey is unique to you. Our job is simply to walk alongside you to support you in moving toward your goals, whatever they may be, and help you step into a new phase of life with hope, confidence, and peace of mind.

And our support doesn’t stop in the therapy room. We believe in supporting you in every facet of your care, whether this means:

  • Speaking with your medical team on your behalf
  • Collaborating with you to connect your children with age-appropriate resources for their own journeys
  • Leveraging clinical hypnosis for sleep or pain management
  • Directing you to additional services that can further benefit you
  • … and more!
