Dr. Conway feels truly fortunate to be able to help adolescents and adults on their journeys towards reaching their goals, as she has for the past 12 years. She emphasizes the therapeutic relationship, openness and teamwork in delivering effective therapeutic services. Her training in empirically-based services, particularly cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), allows her to deliver the best possible services to her clients. Dr. Conway enjoys flexibly adapting these general treatment principles to each client in a creative and dynamic way to make sure that she best meets her clients where they are and helps them to reach their goals in a clear and collaborative way. Her initial training in more traditional CBT techniques (e.g., exposure therapy) is supplemented by ongoing training in, and practice of, acceptance- and mindfulness-based treatment approaches (e.g., Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Functional Analytic Psychotherapy), and she adapts her treatment approach to each client. Above all, Dr. Conway endeavors to approach her clinical work with an open, kind, and curious nature, and a sense of humor and humility.
Dr. Conway holds a Bachelors Degree from the University of Oklahoma and a Doctoral Degree from the University of Wyoming. She completed her American Psychological Association-accredited internship at the Ralph H. Johnson Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the National Crime Victims and Research Treatment Center (NCVC) in Charleston, SC; she also completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at the NCVC. In addition to being a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the State of Illinois, Dr. Conway is also Board Certified in Cognitive and Behavioral Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology. She has particular expertise in the treatment of anxiety, trauma and stress, and also works with clients dealing with depression and mood symptoms, and people who are adjusting to life changes (e.g., relationships, children, employment).
