Robert P. Stanford, LCPC

I strive to provide warm and compassionate presence and environment. I utilize an integrative approach to care that is focused on cultivating wholeness in the people that I work with. To that end, I incorporate the best from several theories of treatment, depending on the unique needs of each person, couple, or family, My ultimate concern is that I promote a positive and trusting relationship that facilitates change.

Prior to entering private practice in 2012, I worked in the field of social services for over 10 years, serving in various capacities ranging from case management to administration. I served for several years as Director of Counseling Services for a large, multicultural congregation in Chicago. I'm keenly interested in helping people appropriate their faith to achieve good mental health. While I recognize the importance and value of spirituality, I'm committed to working with people from all walks of life and systems of belief.

I am licensed in the state of Illinois as a Clinical Professional Counselor. I am also a National Certified Counselor with the National Board of Certified Counselors and a Board Certified Biblical Counselor with the American Association of Christian Counselors. I received my graduate degrees in Pastoral Counseling and Religious Studies from Loyola University Chicago and Chicago Theological Seminary, respectively. My education and clinical training emphasized the relationship between spirituality and mental health.

Sherri S. Wick, LCPC

I strive to create a space for all people to feel safe while working through their thoughts, feelings, and difficulties. I believe in supporting people along their journey by challenging them to make positive and holistic changes to all aspects of their life. I have a unique ability to build rapport with everyone that I meet with, regardless of their background.

I love working with women’s issues. I affirm our worth while supporting them in finding their voices and develop genuine self-acceptance. I have a special place in my heart for women that wear the “mommy hat.”

Faith is one of my core values. Faith is an undeniable requirement to overcome challenges. It’s the foundation that we need to navigate this world. It renews spirit, body and mind. Faith is restorative. It reminds us that we are loved unconditionally and that we are forgiven when we make mistakes.

I received my master’s degree in clinical psychology from Benedictine University. I use strategies from multiple approaches to therapy including: person-centered, multicultural, existential, strengths-based, and solution-focused. This integrative approach along with my background in career counseling, makes me a good fit for most people as they seek to accomplish their goals, work through challenges, and feel better. I am also a Myers Brigg Type Indicator (MBTI) practitioner that assists in understanding personality, career and leadership.
