Dr. Mark Bakal is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist whose passion is helping individuals, couples, employers, and employees find ways to live a full and satisfying life.

In addition to his clinical work in the office, Dr. Bakal has been providing training and consultation for small and large businesses throughout the Chicago area for several years. He enjoys presenting in a down-to-earth and interactive fashion.
Dr. Bakal realizes that we live in a fast-paced culture where many of us feel overrun with anxiety, depression, relationship troubles, and a general sense of unnecessary urgency. He enjoys helping people learn a method of tuning into their mind and body which allows them to slow the pace of their lives and make decisions from a clear and accepting place. This is a skill that can help a person go from putting out life's fires to living to one's fullest on a daily basis. This method of psychotherapy can help people who have been suffering with depression, anxiety, difficulty making decisions, procrastination, couples issues, as well as just wanting to live a better life.
