About Dr. Heather Gibb

I am glad you've stopped by to get to know me...

Hello!

 

I am a Clinical Psychologist, who recently relocated from Seattle, Washington, with my family. Although a native of the Pacific Northwest, I have lived and worked as a psychologist in Washington State, California, and now Illinois. 

 

My private practice is now in the community of Downers Grove, where I specialize in providing psychological and psychoeducational testing services for children and adolescents (including cognitive/IQ testing, academic testing, assessment of learning difficulties, social-emotional issues, and attention/executive functioning challenges). My office is conveniently located in downtown Downers Grove very near the public library. I look forward to collaborating with you in the future!

 

More about my career...

 

As a Clinical Psychologist, I have gained expertise in assessment and evaluation. I truly value and enjoy the collaborative assessment process. I do my very best to understand your family's concerns in order to provide comprehensive and relevant recommendations that guide you in the next steps towards success. Whether I am providing psychotherapy or testing, I practice with an underlying framework, to facilitate growth towards one's capacity to thrive in relationships.

 

With a specific focus on children, adolescents, and families, my clinical work over the past 10 years has included providing child and family focused treatment including psychotherapy in private practice, outpatient clinics, residential settings, schools, and commmunity/home settings; psychological testing in private practice, outpatient, and school settings; and collaboration with parents, clinicians, and educators regarding services (academic, therapeutic, medical, social) to better or differently meet the needs of children and adolescents, and their families.
