About me

Hello, I am Dr. DeAnna (Dee Dee)Brookhart. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Other Drug Counselor and CODPII in the State of Illinois. I have over 25 years of experience as a therapist, in both the Community Mental Health model and in Private Practice. My experience includes working with individuals, couples and families.
My therapeutic approach is client centered and solution oriented. I will use the best approach to help my client. I have extensive training in addictions and cognitive behavior therapy.
I am an avid believer in utilizing a holistic approach to mental health therapy: mind, body, emotional and social factors all contribute to the overall wellness of every individual.
I love cooking, reading and spending time with my family and fur babies. Traveling to the beach is also high on my list of life loves!
It takes courage to take the first step towards change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and help you unlock your happiness and satisfaction with your life.
It's choice, not chance that you are reading this and looking to make your life better!
I hope to earn the right to hear your story! I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Brookhart has been an a wonderful asset to my mental health journey. She creates a comfortable and safe environment for me to share my feelings. I look forward to our meetings because I know that each session will be informational and encouraging. She provides me with tools to help me navigate life and those curve balls that come my way.

Dr. Brookhart is professional , yet warm. It is easy to connect with her and I feel like she truly understands my circumstances and goals. She is kind but firm and will push you out of your comfort zone in order to find solutions.
