About Me

Hi, I am Dr. Trygve B. Trosper, a skilled and well-informed therapist. I am based in Chicago, IL but I’m licensed as a LPC in Illinois, Virginia, and Washington D.C. My psychotherapy experiences expand over two decades from hospital settings to private practice. Treatment specialties include; parenting, PTSD, depression, anxiety, conduct disorder, anger management and couple/relationship problems. As an eclectic therapist, I know that individuals are unique and he/she/they warrants an individualized treatment plan to meet their specific needs. Lastly, I am a retired military veteran.

The freedom of choice is a great characteristic that all individuals possess as they aim to navigate the different environments encountered throughout their lifetime. Therefore, understanding our life choices can bring freedom to the mind, that will not only strengthen one's self resolve but help to cultivate healthier relationships as well.
Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Incredibly patient and kind. Helped me navigate disconnect from my self and ill manners, while giving sold feedback and advice. Won’t push too hard but will make you realize what need to be taken care of first before diving deeper. You’ll have a great conversation.

Dr. Trosper has been very kind and listens well to me. His experience is clear when we discuss my issues and when he offers realistic, actionable steps to meet them.

Excellent experience. I am a therapist (LPC) and refer/tell many clients and caregivers this as a resource as it is very difficult to find an in-person counselor.

Written by M.A. on Feb 10, 2021 after therapy with Trygve for 4 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, and compassion fatigue

Dr. Trosper was extremely helpful straight away in our first session. His style was more active than I'm used to - he jumped right in with suggestions, talked through helpful scenarios and even specific talking points for conversations with family, and had very useful feedback that I could use immediately. I found his style approachable, realistic, and highly responsive. I look forward to the next session!

Absolutely amazing

Written by W.I. on Jan 18, 2021 after therapy with Trygve for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and career difficulties

Dr. Trosper is the best therapist by far that I've had ever since I've done therapy. He helps me see things outside of myself & from different perspectives I never thought about. It is very helpful in my outlook & decision making. He is very non judgmental & keeps it real. I look forward to speaking with him every week & to help me in journey of life. Absolutely love him

Prosper with Dr. Trosper. He’s a good guy, listens to you, and gives you some actual directions. Very helpful with outlining adaptations that are rational, helpful without being over corrections.

Written by D.E. on Sep 09, 2020 after therapy with Trygve for 4 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and family conflicts

Dr. Trosper is adept at guiding me to get to the root of issues and problems and offering ways to handle them so that I don't repeat past behaviors that weren't solving or helping the situations. He helps me to look at things from different perspectives and angles from further out of the situation rather than muddled up in it. He helps me forecast how I could behave differently in the future to achieve different outcomes. Each hour with him has been extremely valuable. I continue to get a clearer approach and direction, and he is giving me tools and showing me I have the capability and power to do what's right and reasonable.

I respect Dr. Trosper’s perspective and his ability to understand things that may be outside of his area of expertise in terms of issues of sexuality. He allows me to think of things in a different manner. The main thing I wish I could improve on generally in therapy is the ability to know what to bring up before going in but I don’t believe that is Dr. Trospers responsibility.

Speaking to Dr. Trosper helped me refocus. I feel motivated to keep trying. I was not planning to give up before but I felt like there were mountains when there were hills. He allowed me to see that I had work to do but it wasn't a horrible, desperate situation.

Dr. Trosper has provided me with a lens into my own thoughts about what I should be doing but I apparently need outside validation and he has done a great job at that. He reaches out from time to time to check on me which I appreciate. All in all, this has been a great experience for me.

Dr. Trosper has been excellent and understanding. He has a very calm demeanor and always remembers what we recently discussed. Definitely recommend 10/10

Dr. Trosper is awesome! He devotes his energy to listening to my concerns and helping me to learn tools and insights to help me move forward in my goals/things I’m working through. I never felt rushed in our sessions. I felt very seen heard and safe. Thank you so much!
