Professional statement

Dr. Sheeba Daniel-Crotty is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in Skokie, IL who specializes in working with high-functioning children and adolescents with depression and/or anxiety along with providing psychological evaluations for children and adolescents with a learning disability and/or ADHD. She also has extensive expertise in providing individual and family therapy as well as parent training.

Dr. Daniel-Crotty frequently utilizes a combination of talk and play therapy to help her clients learn how to express how they are feeling and what challenges they are facing. She also takes a didactic approach that incorporates social thinking, workbooks, and videos that are child-friendly. She ends sessions by bringing the parents in to review what happened and how the work can continue at home. Knowing that each child is different, Dr. Daniel-Crotty develops an individualized treatment approach that takes into account a child’s age, attention span, and the unique challenges they are facing. She skillfully helps families to help them better understand how their children view and interact with the world around them.

Dr. Daniel-Crotty also works with adolescents in therapy who are struggling with the demands of high school and anxiety related to unreasonably high expectations they place on themselves. She works with many adolescents to develop coping strategies for managing social and performance anxiety as well as feelings of low motivation and sadness.

Dr. Daniel-Crotty is an expert in child and adolescent mental health and is passionate about the work she does with each of her clients. She has years of experience working with children, adolescents, and their families, including working at the Rush Neurobehavioral Center and conducting research in parent training for kids with ADHD who have homework difficulties. She received her PhD from MCP Hahnneman-Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.  Her office is conveniently located in Old Orchard Mall.

Message to clients

No matter how in-depth my expertise or years of experience, I truly believe that movement or progress in therapy rests in the therapeutic alliance and fit between me and you/your family. That in mind, it’s important to me that kids and their families feel that therapy is a safe, supportive, judgment-free zone in which they can feel a sense of relief and hope.
