Clinical Psychologist

Carol Schwerha, PsyD

An area of expertise that I am truly passionate about is helping people adjust to the many transitions that take place throughout one’s life. Whether it be a child feeling the effects of divorce, a young adult debating what direction to head in life or an adult trying to figure out how to help aging parents; I bring an objective perspective, and help my clients move through seasons of change with intentionality and greater ease than if they did it on their own.

I enjoy doing play therapy with my littlest clients, providing empathy and support for my teen clients and equipping parents with the tools and strategies they need to guide their children through life.  

“Whatever season my clients find themselves in – I am here to help!”

Before joining Life Insight, I worked at a private practice where part of my time was spent helping children and teens with sexual behavior problems. This work challenged me, helped me grow as a therapist and allowed me to become extremely comfortable with having “the talk.” Through that work, I also received additional training in trauma and in working with clients who identify as LGBTQ+.

My Education and Experience:

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, earning both my master’s degree and doctorate in clinical psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology, with a specialization in Family Therapy. I’ve worked as an adjunct professor at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, teaching graduate-level courses. When I’m not at the office, I am usually spending time with my husband and three school-aged children, traveling, baking, reading or trying my best to play Hamilton songs on the piano.

What Our Past Clients Have To Say

We Are Open For Business

What a week for our world. As everyone tries to adapt to a new sense of normal amidst an ever-changing landscape, we've all been asked to do things differently. And humans do not like change! We crave the familiar, the predictable, the known. One of the ways we are encouraging our community to stay healthy during this time is to keep as much routine and consistency as possible, including self-care and support.

We understand the anxiety and worries that are in the world right now, we also understand the importance of connection and care and healing. We are moving all of our appointments to Telehealth sessions as of Monday, March 23rd. While this may be a different way of doing things for some of you, it allows us to be a consistent source of support for our community.

Our practice has been using telehealth for over two years, and we have a HIPAA compliant platform in place that is really quite simple to use for our sessions. All of our therapists are able to walk you through getting used to your first telehealth session and not much will be different other than you'll show up online instead of at the offices.

In fact, we're still taking new clients during this time, so if you are feeling like you'd like to talk to someone or know of someone in need of extra support right now, let them know that we are here to help. You can call or text our offices at: 630-563-0044 or sign up online via the "Book Appointment Online" button on our website.
