About Me

Hello and welcome!
My name is Bert Bibat. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor. I have been working in the field of counseling and psychotherapy for over 25 years and continue to find my work personally rewarding. I currently maintain a private practice in DesPlaines, Illinois where I provide Individual, Couples, Family and Group therapy for those suffering with chemical and behavioral addictions, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, relationship and family issues, anger management, and parenting skills therapy/training.

Although my professional education and training have provided me with the intellectual skills and theoretical constructs which guide me in my work, I see myself as a therapist who counsels from the heart. I draw inspiration from my own life experiences and my own spiritual journey; both positive and negative. In providing a safe, supportive, and genuinely caring environment, you are free to openly express your concerns without fear of judgement. When trust is nurtured and established in the client/therapist relationship, insight and change happen. It is then that true emotional and spiritual healing can begin. I hope to gain your trust!

I look forward to hearing from you.

I've only had three sessions with Bert, but talking to him is something i look forward to every week. I feel he can relate to my issues and I appreciate his honesty and candor. I intend to maintain a professional relationship with him for some time to come.

My experience with Bert completely changed my outlook on therapy. He is kind, warm, offers excellent support/advice, and guidance. He helped me get through some very difficult issues and come out on the other end stronger. Would highly recommend his services and look forward to working with him further in the future.

After it was not working with other counsellors I finally felt supported. I felt a lot of empathy which made it easy for me to open up and trust. I have a safe space and the therapy is helping me a lot because it's about self esteem. To change myself is the only way it works. I feel that I got the right person and I'm very grateful for

I feel blessed to have someone who understands my concerns and who is willing to be a supportive part of my process. Bert has a caring spirit, and that is rare these days. He seems to actually understand and to actually care and has meaningful feedback about my issues. I am pleasantly surprised with this process.
