Counseling Specialties

Terry Hefter Associates - psychotherapists in Lincoln ParkSome of our friendly and professional therapists specialize in particular areas of counseling.  We are uniquely skilled in assisting you with:

Stress-related Health Problems

The medical field acknowledges that there is a link between stress and physical health. Between 60% to 80% of physical problems are thought to be related to the emotions. As an adjunct to conventional physician care we incorporate stress management into therapy sessions for clients with gastro-intestinal disorders, headaches, heart conditions, back problems, and other stress-related health problems.

Substance Abuse Follow-up and Relapse Prevention

Once a client is drug-free, remaining that way is the focus. Also, when clean and sober, clients usually discover underlying depression, anxiety issues, relationship problems, etc. that are vital to address. Terry has substance abuse certification at the top level (CAADC – Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor). Several of our therapists also have substance abuse certification.

Children & Adolescents

We gain rapport quickly with these age groups and do family and individual work with them.

Premarital Counseling for Couples

Prevention of relationship problems makes much more sense than patching things up after they have occurred. We teach conflict-resolution skills and problem-solving skills along with any other areas that need work.

Multi-Cultural Counseling

Our experience is extensive with almost all races and ethnic groups.
