Amber Jelinek, PsyD

Dr. Amber Jelinek offers psychological and neuropsychological testing and DBT skills group for Illinois. She is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who specialized in Forensics and Neuropsychology. When testing, she works with ages 6+ and assesses for academic issues, autism, ADHD, cognitive and executive functioning, memory, mood, personality, PTSD, and thought disorders. Prior to joining LifeStance, she facilitated group therapy and other various skills groups for 14 years in correctional type settings. Her journey has given her vast experience with providing treatment for all the diagnostic issues she now assesses.

When teaching skills groups, she uses a combination of lecture and experiential methods. In addition to impromptu modeling of skills, she pulls from personal or made-up situations to use as examples for various skills to help see the skill(s) in motion. These methods help to optimize the deepest understanding and practice of the skills being taught.
