Therapist in Vernon Hills, Illinois Troy Glickstern, LPC

Troy Glickstern, LPC

During our journey through life, it is easy at times to feel lost, stuck, caught in a crossroads, and overwhelmed. And unfortunately for us, life never came with a roadmap. My job as a counselor is to walk alongside you as we work through the obstacles of life together. I provide a safe, compassionate space for self-exploration, collaborative problem-solving, personal healing, and growth. My client-centered and accepting style puts the therapeutic alliance front and center as you set the agenda for our work. Too much guidance risks taking away your own autonomy, and too little keeps you confused, so striking the right balance is one of the keys to good therapy.

Experienced in treating problems with addiction, codependency, anxiety, depression, anger, grief, relationship difficulties, and trauma, I am effective in helping adults and adolescents with a broad range of presenting concerns. Whether you want to improve your self-esteem, manage stress, or negotiate life transitions, there is no issue too big for us to tackle together. My training in motivational interviewing and other evidence-based treatments assists in empowering you to realize your full potential and to spur you toward the change you want to see in your life. Also drawing on a variety of different therapeutic techniques, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), as well as mindfulness-based and emotionally focused approaches, I tailor my methods to your unique needs.
