Professional statement

Joe Kanengiser is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who provides teletherapy to adults living in Illinois. With a background in the tech world, Joe has a deep appreciation for the time and logistic constraints busy professionals face. By offering the option to take secure video calls from any location, Joe is able to meet clients wherever they are, building a plan to tackle daily stressors and work towards larger goals.

Many of Joe's clients come to therapy seeking to tackle work-related stress and uncertainty about the future. Through a careful examination of each individual’s strengths and core values, he helps clients to overcome creative and motivational roadblocks, make decisions with confidence, and respond more mindfully to interpersonal issues.

Joe also offers deeper self-exploration within the safety of an established therapeutic relationship. By taking a close look inward, Joe is able to help clients understand where patterns of thought and behavior originate, decreasing symptoms of anxiety and depression and increasing self-awareness and connection.

Joe is also an ADHD/Executive Function and Leadership coach. To learn more about those services, please visit his website at (www)kanengisercoaching(.)com

Supportive, direct, and insightful, Joseph believes everyone deserves both professional and personal success. He looks forward to meeting you.

Message to clients

I practice therapy based on who you are and what you are looking for. While I have expertise in a wide variety of methods, including coping skill development, psychoanalysis and executive coaching, you are the expert on yourself. Therefore, therapy is a collaborative process. Together, we will set goals to increase your fulfillment and quality of life.
