Naperville, Illinois (PRUnderground) December 19th, 2014
Agor Behavioral Health Services, Inc. is pleased to welcome Jennifer Loughran, LCSW, to the practice. She provides therapy services for individuals, couples and families.
Jennifer’s career includes extensive experience as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker; she works with children, adolescents, adults, families and groups. She believes that when people are experiencing difficult times in their lives, the combination of support and introduction to new skills will provide a sense of relief and the ability to cope with day to day struggles.
Jennifer felt the calling to a career in Social Services since high school. “I was fortunate enough to be assigned teachers that not only put in the effort to teach academic lessons but also very important social emotional life lessons,” she explained. “My teachers’ interest in myself as more than an academic student left me feeling empowered. That quickly sparked a desire within me to help provide the same feeling in others.”
Jennifer’s goal for her clients while in treatment is to guide them to feel empowered to overcome future obstacles. Through the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy along with the use of Anger Replacement Training she is able to guide her clients to the emotional balance and stability they desire.
Dr. William Agor, PsyD, owner of Agor Behavioral Health Services, Inc., is happy that Loughran has joined the staff of his practice. Dr. Agor said, “Jennifer’s background, and her passion for social work, bring a fresh perspective to our practice.”
