I have achieved my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and Masters degree in Marriage and Family Counseling from Adler University in Chicago. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. I achieved my undergraduate degree from Western Illinois University, majoring in Biology with Chemistry and Psychology minors. I currently work at a private practice in the Chicago southwest suburbs.
I have a variety of different experiences serving diverse clientele ranging from children through seniors. I have provided counseling in community mental health, shelter services for DCFS, crisis assessments in homes and ER settings, post hospitalization counseling, worked in correctional settings and with detained youth and within a private practice with individuals, couples, families, youth as young as 5, LGBTQ and seniors. I have provided group therapy in the areas of parenting skills, addiction and anger management.
I enjoy working with couples. I believe we need to deal with the conflict and heal the past in order to move forward and heal the relationship. I utilize John Gottman's work and I use an integrative approach to therapy. I have been working with couples for almost 5 years. I enjoy working with same sex couples.
I am a lifelong learner and we are always becoming. This is my third life career. I began in with career in business and customer service, was a stay at home mom and volunteer before becoming a licensed therapist. I look forward to the opportunity to meet and work with you.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Alice Fitzgerald. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with ReGain might be different.
We’ve been working with Dr Fitzgerald for around 5 months and I can’t be more happy with her. She is really involved in our issues and she always tries to find a way to meet our goals. We’ve tried three different counselors and she is definitely the best. I strongly recommend her!
