Denise K Ambre, LCSW
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Psychoanalyst specializing in individual, couples, adolescent and child psychotherapy, and I maintain a private practice conveniently located in Glenview, Illinois.
With over 25 years experience as a therapist, and as a graduate of both Loyola School of Social Work and the Wisconsin Institute for Psychoanalysis, I am currently serving as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are depression, anxiety and trauma/PTSD.
In addition to being a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, I have presented at National conferences and to general audiences speaking on the topics of trauma and PTSD, parenting and child development. I am also on the faculty of the Wisconsin Institute for Psychoanalysis where I teach courses on psychoanalytic topics, and adjunct faculty for Northwestern University where I am a Preceptor for the Masters students in the Counseling Psychology Program.
I am an interactive, psychodynamic therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and insight to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with individuals to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
