About Me

I have been in private practice for 40+ years, having earned my Masters and Doctorate from Illinois Institute of Technology and my clinical license from the State of Illinois in 1973. Having been in active practice for this long, I have had the privilege of studying under some of the most significant figures in psychology in the Midwest. Gaining feedback from clients over the years on their outcomes allowed me to hone my skills as a diagnostician and clinician. Applying this knowledge and learning from the outcomes has allowed me to increase my success rate with my patients.

I utilize an eclectic approach to therapies and treatments. I am not bound by the conventions of dated treatment modalities and having experienced feedback over the decades has allowed me to provide targeted treatments that are most helpful to reach desired outcomes.

I use humor, reality goals, and incremental steps to reach satisfactory targets in therapy, I am gratified to receive the feedback from patients that what we have accomplished has met their goals and allowed them to move on and past the presenting issues that brought them to me,

I want my patients to know they can trust my approaches and gain a better outcome if they stick with the goals we set.

Dr. Krain has been beyond supportive and helpful, already helping to guide me and bring new insights into my life that I have yet to come across with other mental health professionals in the past. He is sensitive, attentive and compassionate, allowing for a greater sense of trust to be established and giving me a moment in my day where I feel completely heard and acknowledged. Thank you for all that you do and all of who you are, Dr. Krain. You’ve made such an impact already and I can’t thank you enough.
