I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Illinois with over 25 years of experience working with a wide range of individual issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career concerns and challenging work experiences, I have assisted individuals experiencing issues with substance abuse, and parenting concerns.
My goal in the treatment is to be warm and to create a safe space in which we can build a therapeutic relationship. I believe it is important to provide respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and mindfulness therapy. I use these tools to develop a treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
Booking an appointment is the first step to building a better life for yourself. I provide guidance and support as you take that next step towards change.
I look forward to working with you!

I feel like she hears me, when no one else does. She helped me consider some things that I otherwise wouldn't have thought of concerning my husband. She's given me the support system I lost with my mother's passing last year.

I have been working with Dr. Dobier for the past couple of months. I appreciate the way she makes me feel heard and asks questions without judgment. She has helped me reframe a lot of my negative self-image and provides suggestions that feel doable.
