About Us


I am a solution focused therapist with 30 years of experience. My therapy style is cognitive, interactive, compassionate, and, if need be, challenging. I believe effective therapy should produce change, not just insight. I will listen to you deeply, help you conceptualize the problems, patterns, and dynamics which are causing you trouble, and give you feedback. Together, we will develop a strategy for more effective functioning and a better quality of life. I have a general practice, but specialize in addictions of all kinds, depression, anxiety, and couples therapy. Please visit my website at www.liseschiffer.com where you can read my blog postings.
If you live outside the Chicago area or are unable to travel, I offer video sessions online. All you need is a computer and some privacy. I will set up the session at a mutually agreed upon time and you will get and email link to the site. It is that simple!
