First I would like to welcome you to my profile. I am Dr. Amr Kireem and I am a clinical psychologist and licensed therapist in the state of Illinois. I believe you will find it much easier than you might think to begin your journey with me. I am here to make you feel comfortable enough to open up and share as much as you like. There’s no judgment here at all. I can promise you will experience genuineness, empathy, and unconditional acceptance. I started providing mental health services in 2009 to clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, substance use, life stages transition, and much more. I worked at all settings before starting my own practice in 2017. Recently I have been providing Telehealth services most of my time.
Are you ready to take the first step?
My values are to do my best effort with every individual who reaches out to me and do the most I can to be part of the positive changes in her or his life. Simply I am having difficulties considering what I do as a business. I think it is difficult to be perceived as such while we are dealing with human beings’ emotions, feelings, and well-being. When I think I am not the right fit for a given client I just suggest a better fit therapist.
You can be assured that your confidentiality will not be compromised. Feel free to be yourself and talk about whatever you cannot share with anyone else. It is one of the most critical part of our ethical guidelines.
It is important to be treated from a holistic perspective based on your whole self not based only on the struggles you are going through at this stage of your life. Life has its crises and suffering. However, each individual responds to them differently. I have probably worked with thousands of clients, yet I have not seeing two individuals that exactly the same.
Part of the reasons I choose this profession is because of my compassionate nature. I truly care deeply about every client I worked with. I have not ever needed to work for it. I think it has been embedded in my personality.
Genuine acceptance is essential to successful therapeutic treatment. That is not necessary means agreeing with my clients all the times. It just means I need to validate my client's feelings and emotions. That will open the door to entertaining different perspectives.
