Cara Raymond, PhD - Licensed Clinical Psychologist
(847) 321-5731

I strongly believe you should feel comfortable with the therapist you choose and hopeful about therapy. When you feel this way, therapy is more likely to be helpful to you. I am a Clinical Psychologist providing psychotherapy to individuals who want to heal, grow, and/or make changes in their relationships and lives.

I view therapy as a partnership. Collaboratively, we define the problems we will work on and the type of work we will do to facilitate change, healing, and growth. Treatment can be short- or longer-term, problem-focused or more insight-oriented, depending on your needs. I have training and skills to help with symptom relief as well as to explore the roots or deeper causes of symptoms.

I believe that the relationship between a therapist and client is critical to the effectiveness of therapy. I feel so strongly about the importance of a good match between therapist and client that I offer a free initial phone consultation. During this consultation, you can tell me a little about what is prompting you to consider therapy at this time and I can answer any questions that you might have about me or the therapy process. This initial consultation often gives each of us a good sense of what it will be like to work together. The relationship helps with the commitment therapy requires.

Once we begin our work together, we will decide what type of approach will be most beneficial for you. Often, a combination of symptom relief and deeper, more insight-oriented work is most effective in creating long-term improvement in your sense of well-being.

I work with individuals struggling with:
Anxiety/Stress
Depression
Relationship difficulties
Life Transitions
Personal Growth
Changing Ineffective Patterns
Self Esteem
Trauma/Abuse
Balancing Multiple Demands
