Kristen Tyler, PsyD, M.Ed.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and earned my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Adler University in Chicago. Prior to my doctoral studies, I received my Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology from Cambridge College. My primary area(s) of interest are Anxiety, Depression, perfectionism, relationship concerns, familial discord, women's issues, ADHD, and parenting difficulty. I also specialize in psychological testing to assess for ADHD, Learning Disorders, Anxiety, Mood Disorders, behavioral profiles, and personality styles.
Previously I worked in psychiatric hospitals, college counseling centers, and community mental health settings. During these experiences I focused on individual therapy with adults, and psychological assessment with children 6 through 18 years of age. A particular interest of mine is working with predoctoral trainees in a supervisory role.
My style of therapy is relational in nature, meaning I believe the relationship between the therapist and client can be the vehicle for insight and change. I value each person's unique experience and am collaborative in the therapy session. Finally, I consider the family system from which the client came to be important, as it often helps explain one's beliefs about oneself.
