Lynn Zakeri is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with offices in Skokie and Northfield, IL who works with adolescents and adults across the lifespan. She specializes in anxiety disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, parenting, and college mental health.
Lynn believes it is important to not only help clients develop new coping strategies and change thought patterns but also dig deep to explore what their triggers are and how past experiences may have even influenced who they are today. She utilizes a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Supportive Therapy, and Psychoanalytic Therapy. She takes a relational approach that focuses on how clients interact with others and view their relationships.
Lynn makes her clients feel at ease the moment they walk through the door. She is passionate about the work she does and looks forward to supporting you as you take the first step towards change. Outside of private practice, she is an elected board member of the National Association of Social Workers’ local chapter, and is dedicated to furthering her continued education on best-practice approaches on a regular basis. In addition to being a therapist, Lynn is a wife, mother, sister, and daughter.
