Therapist in Lockport, Illinois Eric Maze, LSW

Eric Maze, LSW

I believe that everyone has experiences and beliefs that shape who they are. My therapeutic approach is strengths based and built on getting to know and understand my client so that we can build a trusting relationship. I want to meet people where they are at and help people reach their goals and manage their mental health. I use multiple therapeutic approaches including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention and Motivational Interviewing. I think it is important to empower individuals so that they can move forward.

Some of my other passions include working with people with disabilities (families and caregivers of those with disabilities), mental health disorders impacting life, and Christian Counseling. I also have personal experiences with grief and loss that have shaped my passion for helping those dealing with grief and loss.

I earned my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Aurora University and currently am a Licensed Social Worker pursuing my clinical licensure. I have a wide range of experiences in schools working as a school social worker from elementary through the high school setting. I worked in the Alternative Setting as well. I know that school can be challenging for various reasons and want to help students who are dealing with academic and social stressors.

I love spending time with my wife and daughter, following sports, exercise and playing the drums, piano and singing. I also volunteer at my church on a regular basis and am involved in the church community. I enjoy spending time outside, going to concerts with my wife and traveling with family.
