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.

Kindly note in this survey submission there is one question that I mistakenly wrote strongly disagree thinking it was the strongly agree response.
Amazing!! Very welcoming and thorough, also great sense of humor
Dr. Krain is pragmatic while being kind and understanding. I really enjoyed how in his strategy, he gave me tangible exercises to work on outside of therapy so that the work could continue beyond our sessions. While talking is key, the outside exercises helped me feel like I was doing something outside of therapy to better myself. Thank you Dr. Krain.

Dr. Krain has extensive experience and with this he is able to identify which form of therapy might work best for you. Has has many tools under his belt and is great to talk to, making me feel comfortable enough to dig deep and identify my root issues.
