Caren Jeskey, LCSW

Caren Jeskey is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who helps guide people into a place of deeper inner peace and well-being. She will accompany you on a journey to a clearer sense of yourself, and help you build upon your inner strengths. Through this process, you will learn to cope with challenges and setbacks more effectively.

She has observed that good mental health stems from positive self-regard, compassion towards yourself and others, and by developing and nurturing satisfying personal and professional relationships.

Caren practices active, non-judgmental listening, and provides a place for you to tell your story and explore all of the corners of yourself. She can help you pay closer attention to your feelings, and see relationship patterns in new ways. In the process, you may learn to reduce thoughts that keep you in a place of fear or worry, and experience a more grounded, comfortable internal landscape.

She can also help you learn breathing and meditation exercises to calm your nervous system, which enables you to access deeper feelings of joy and serenity. If you are a person of faith, Caren can help support your prayer life, and if you are not, she can help you access secular tools for inner peace. She has been a student and teacher of yoga and meditation for more than 20 years.

Caren started volunteering in social services as an adolescent and has always had a calling to help others. She received a B.A. in Psychology from DePaul University, and a Master's Degree in social service administration and clinical social work from the University of Chicago. After practicing as a medical, psychiatric, and community social worker, Caren has used her experience to move into a primary practice of psychotherapy.

Caren works within Medicare and BCBS networks, as well as seeing people who self-pay.
