Deborah Hellerstein, MSW
Licensed Social Worker (Illinois: 149001902)

I earned my graduate degree in social work twenty years ago from the University of Chicago. In the course of the past twenty years I have worked as a therapist in many different settings from hospitals, schools, mental health clinics and for the past eight years in private practice. As a result I have worked with a wide range of different clients and issues from depression,anxiety, relationship problems, life transitions, to artistic and academic blocks.

Because of a long standing interest in the arts, ten years ago, I went to the School of the Art Institue of Chicago and recieved a BFA. I am presently completing my PHD in Social Work. My dissertation topic combines my two interests in both psychology and art and concerns the psychology of creativity and creative blocks.

Making the decision to come for therapy can feel quite daunting as well as hopeful.I work hard to co creat with my clients a safe environment in which we can explore and discover solutions that help you live a more fulfilling life. I hope to hear from you soon.
