Dr. Meredith Hayes

(Psy.D, L.C.P.C.)

About Me

I'm a licensed therapist in the state of Illinois. I have been in the field for 13 years working together with people to better their lives. I've been honored to work with many different people going through many different things. My clients have presented with issues such as: Depression; Anxiety/OCD; Addiction; Trauma and Abuse; Eating Disorders; Self-Injury: Bi-Polar; life transitions; Couples Counseling and Separation/Divorce.

I would describe myself as an interactive therapist one who is engaged in the therapeutic process. I will play an active role in the therapy process. I would be described as a Cognitive Behavioral therapist. That means that we will review your past and present and consider how they have shaped your current patterns. Psychology Today said " Evidence has mounted that CBT can benefit numerous conditions, such as major depressive disorder, anxietydisorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and many others. Research also indicates that CBT can be delivered effectively online, in addition to face-to-face therapy sessions."

I look forward to getting to know you and work with you!

Dr Hayes is the best couples councilor I have had! We can relate to her and be open about our problems! Our relationship has greatly improved since we have had her. We talk to one another better and have an overall wonderful experience working with Dr Hayes.

Dr. Hayes really listens to us it’s time to understand what’s happening from both of our perspectives. She gives excellent advice and backs it up with worksheets and activities we can do on our own. We have been very fortunate to have Dr. Hayes as our counselor and highly recommend her to any couples working through differences and difficulties, or even for healthy couples who want to be even better!
