Dr. Jonah Waseberg is a psychotherapist who works collaboratively with clients from all backgrounds, faith, cultures, and nationalities. He treats individuals, families, adults, and adolescents. He emphasizes client strengths to find meaning and hope in the present, and purpose in their future. He utilizes a variety of approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT, spiritual counseling, and trauma-informed therapies. He also implements a multi-cultural approach in counseling clients from different backgrounds, including those who are immigrants/refugees. He believes therapy can allow individuals to gain an increased sense of self-worth and dignity.
Dr. Waseberg views therapy as a healing process that begins with getting to the root of the problem, through open dialogue in the therapy setting. He walks alongside each individual to apply an effective plan of care, to help individuals find peace in stressful situations, and joy as they achieve new levels of emotional wellness.
His areas of interest range from general trauma to depression, anxiety, PTSD, loss and grief, phobias, domestic violence, adjustment, life transitions (e.g. job loss, new parent, etc.), relationship issues (e.g. breakups, divorce, etc.), abandonment, identity conflicts, spirituality, immigration and cultural issues.
Dr. Waseberg majored in Psychology and received his PhD from the Chicago Theological Seminary. He earned another doctorate (Doctor of Ministry or D. Min) from the McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago. Currently, in addition to seeing clients at Symmetry, Dr. Waseberg teaches as an adjunct professor of Counseling Psychology at Trinity Christian College in Illinois.
