Adam Shafer, PsyD

Psychologist

Professional statement

I understand the healing process as one of self-determination through therapeutic empathy. Being curious while employing sensitive honesty makes me a good fit for people who are open to exploring deeper personal and interpersonal connections. I have found that listening in the service of understanding and thoughtful responsiveness helps my patients connect to their inner life and with others. Using gentle honesty and compassion, I value autonomy and collaboration to help people feel less alone and find a sense of purpose within their worlds. I look through the lens of attachment, psychodynamic theory, and existential thought within ecological and systemic perspectives to achieve a comprehensive appreciation for the pressures that impact quality of life issues. I am interested in working with individuals, couples, and families from diverse cultural backgrounds who find themselves struggling with relationships, depression, anxiety, complex trauma, psychosis, and grief/loss. I am especially interested in growing my aging adult clientele and supporting their efforts to find meaning in their lives. *Accepted insurance plans include all BCBS PPO plans, one BCBS HMO network (Loyola), and Medicare. *Upon scheduling an appointment (and given enough time), Dr. Shafer will reach out to confirm your appointment to answer any questions you may have and to gain a general understanding of your presenting concerns, use of insurance, and financial policies. *All late cancellations/no shows will be charged a fee if a rescheduled intake or session is not made within the same week of the original appointment.

I had my first session with Doctor Shafer. He is very considerate and relatable. His office setup is comfortable and calming. I was able to open up on my first session and went deep into the issues I want to resolve,which is personally a big step forward comparing to other therapy sessions I've had in the past. I look forward to working with Dr. Shafer, and will definitely recommend him to the people I know.
