Dr. Anneli Riismaa

Hello, I am Dr. Anneli Riismaa. I have a Doctorate in clinical psychology from Illinois School of Professional Psychology/Argosy University. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in the states of Illinois and New Jersey. I have worked as a therapist in the state of Illinois for over a decade. The majority of my work as a therapist has been with individuals with the history of domestic violence; trauma; sexual, emotional and physical abuse; as well as with individuals with the history of pornography use problems and their families. I work with individuals as well as couples. My work with couples focuses on the improvement of communication and intimacy. I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches, favoring the non-directive client-centered method of therapy.

I had a privilege to be a presenter at the American Psychological Association (APA) convention in August 2016 on the topic of depression, marital communication, congruence with religious values and pornography use. Additionally, I was a presenter at the Midwest Psychological Association (MPA) conference in 2013 as well as at the Association of Mormon Counselors and Psychotherapist (AMCAP) convention in 2013.

I was born in Estonia and have resided in Finland and Sweden prior to moving to the United States. Before switching careers over a decade ago, I was a dental hygienist and a translator, as well as an instructor at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry/City Colleges of Chicago for 4 years and a faculty member at the Sanford Brown College.

Seeking therapy is not easy decision to make. I am a warm, empathetic, and culturally sensitive therapist with experience in working with children, adolescents, and adults. My goal is to provide a safe and non- judgmental space where individuals can feel comfortable exploring the reasons that have led them to seek therapy. Feeling connected and understood is crucial when working collaboratively with a therapist to help identify personal issues and moving towards a better self, marriage, or family life and improving overall functioning.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS! Most of my experience has been, but is not limited to, work with sexual assault, trauma, and abuse clients, as well as clients who battle with depression, anxiety, mood disorders or struggle in relationships. I focus on empathy, listening and good support in my work with clients. I utilize techniques such as trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, client-centered therapy, as well as mindfulness.

Therapy is a collaborative experience between the Counselor and the Client and the Client is the expert on his or her life. I utilize a Client-Centered approach where I allow for the Client to take the lead. I see myself as someone who is nonjudgmental, empathic, and multiculturally competent. I am a good listener and someone who provides the Client with a good support system.
