Welcome to the offices of James E. DelGenio LCPC
in the Chicago Loop and Westchester, Illinois.
847-733-4300 Ext 638
I am currently a senior therapist with The Family Institute at Northwestern University. In addition, I have been a practicing Psychotherapist, Author and Consultant throughout the country for over 40 years. I am experienced in the treatment of Couples, Families, and Individuals. I specialize in the treatment of marital issues and conflicts, anxiety and depression, mental illness and its impact on relationships and parenting. As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, I work with my clients to:
A. Identify issues
B. Develop a treatment plan C. Set goals and
D. Provide support through the process.
Premarital, Marital and Family Counseling: Sometimes life just gets in the way of our relationships. Work, finances, children, child activities and physical health are just some of the issues that far too often put our relationships on the back burner. These life pressures strain our relationships which often create other issues such as:
A. lack of civility and respect B. poor communication
C. infidelity, lack of intimacy
D. resentment, hostility
F. parenting conflicts
G. alcohol and substance abuse H. financial issues And more!
Relationships need attention and maintenance in order to remain healthy. I will briefly review family history, address immediate issues and conflicts and help you develop a blue print for the future.
Mental Health Treatment: I also have considerable expertise in working with people whose mental health issues not only interfere with their daily functioning but also interfere with their relationships. Issues such as depression, mood disorders, mental illness, alcohol and substance abuse can have a disastrous effect on relationships. Concurrent treatment of mental health, alcohol and substance abuse and relationship issues is the only viable and effective treatment approach. I have the experience to address these issues simultaneously. With your permission, I can also work closely with your Physician in order to maximize the benefits of treatment. If you do not have a doctor, I can refer you to several with whom I have a collaborative relationship. My expertise includes management of:
A. Depression, anxiety and stress, negative rumination.
B. Grief and Loss.
C. Mood disorders: depression, anxiety, panic, thoughts of suicide, obsessive compulsive disorders.
D. Mental illness: thought disorders, schizophrenia.
E. Alcoholism and Addiction support.
F. Dual Diagnosis i.e. mental illness and alcohol/substance abuse or dependence.
