Keith Merrifield, LCSW

Psychotherapist

Chicago, IL

Keith received his undergraduate degrees in Comparative Religions, Psychology, and Education. After spending years as a stay-at-home dad and managing a private holistic medical practice, Keith returned to school and received his MSW from Eastern Washington University in Cheney, WA. After finishing social work school, Keith moved to Southeast Alaska, where he provided psychotherapy to a variety of diverse populations, from Alaska Native youth in foster care to adults with substance abuse disorders. After his partner was accepted into law school, he moved to Chicago, where he has continued to provide substance abuse, trauma, and mental health treatment. Keith is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). He has extensive experience in trauma therapy, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and EMDR. He is skillful in applying these evidenced-based practices to individuals experiencing complex trauma, depression, anxiety, stress overload, personality disorders, life transition issues, and addictions. Keith believes in a person-centered approach to therapy, providing integrative mind-body practices to better address the holistic needs of each client. He believes in the inherent potential of every person and that each person can realize that potential. Psychotherapy can be an important change-agent in this growth process. Keith enjoys spending his free time exploring Chicago’s restaurants and dog parks with his partner and their two rescue pups. He also enjoys running, reading, and baking. Some more fun facts about Keith: he’s lived in three countries and helped write two children’s storybooks.

My appointment went really great. I felt understood. Additionally, he was able to notice a mood and behavior change thatI didn’t really notice myself. He’s very observant.

Keith is phenomenal. I was very nervous about taking a leap and trying therapy but the appointment was smooth and itwas just like talking to a friend. Wonderful experience.
