Jewish Social Worker in Skokie, IL
My name is Lynn Renee Zakeri, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (www.lynnzakeri.com). Making the first appointment is the hardest step, and I ensure that you are comfortable from the first contact. I'm based in Illinois, but licensed in several neighboring states for telehealth- email me to inquire more!
I feel that my strengths lie in my ability to make connections and foster a warm relationship, even with those who are apprehensive. This is because of the improvements and benefits seen almost immediately.
I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. My clients have successfully worked through multiple issues, including anxiety, depression, transitions, work ethics/motivation, young adult goal setting, self-esteem, anger, family dysfunction (present or past), marital therapy, new mom stress, social skills, trauma, self-harming, and eating disorders, among others. I enjoy assisting in the progress and achievement of attaining goals.
You will leave feeling better each time we meet. Using a cognitive-behavioral approach, I have worked successfully with children, adolescents, young adults, parents, and families. My style is practical, focusing a lot on coping mechanisms and strategies, but also warm and engaging. Some of my strengths include really seeing who you are, being authentic, and moving at your own pace toward progress.
Whether you have anxiety and worry, are feeling sad or depressed, or just want some help setting and reaching goals, I will meet you where you are and help you move forward. I connect well with my clients—men, women, teens, and children—and would welcome the opportunity to discuss your concerns.
