WELCOME to the rebtcounselingandpsychotherapy.com
WEBSITE-HOME of James Simmerer, LCSW, Counseling &
Psychotherapy Services, LLC. Please allow me to introduce
myself.
My name is James Simmerer, and I am a Licensed
Clinical Social Worker in the state of Illinois. I have practiced
in the field of mental health since 1978. I have  experience
with counseling children, adolescents, adults, couples,
families and seniors. I am certified as a Rational Emotive
Behavior Therapist and Supervisor and I am listed as an REBT
therapist on the REBT NETWORK website,
(www.rebtnetwork.org).

I employ a cognitive-behavioral eclectic style in working with
clients. This means that I help clients understand how their
thinking, emotions and behaviors sometimes interfere with
healthy functioning aimed at achieving their goals and living
happier, more fulfilling lives. I seek a style of counseling
between myself and my clients that best fits their individual
personaIities and therapy goals. I believe that no client should
be judged harshly because they are having problems-NO
MATTER WHAT KIND OF PROBLEMS!  Getting help in
counseling, from a trained therapist, is a normal process that
can bring relief and resolution to many problems, often more
quickly and permanently than by simply talking to others we
know. For the past 30 yrs. I have worked in a number of mental
health settings, including inpatient and outpatient facilities, as
well as in private practice. I have worked with many different
types of clients presenting with many different types of
issues. Feeling depressed, anxious or sometimes
overwhelmed is extremely commonplace in today's world,
because our world is moving and changing so rapidly that we
often need to take time out and seek professional counseling
to devise an action plan to better cope with stress and to
more effectively solve problems. Today's life problems are
often complex and we are being totally unfair with ourselves if
we expect that we should be able to solve all of them all by
ourselves!
