Relationship Issues

My practical style and guided questions can help you figure out the right path for your next steps, whether with a family member, a significant other, or a loss.

Personality Disorders

Being diagnosed with a personality disorder is a life changing event and I will help you find the right interpretation that makes sense to you and help you move forward along this path.


Bi-Polar, Depression, Sadness, Self-harming behaviors can be confusing and feel hopeless. I refuse to watch my clients remain in a constant state of sadness and will work to find the right strategy that works and helps you.

Eating Disorders

I have worked with so many clients who have eating disorders that I have made this one of my specialties. I have many strategies and research based skills to help with this difficult issue.


Generalized Anxiety or OCD or a worrier. I have many tools and strategies to help.

Adjustment Issues

Transitions is what I do. Transition to college, to adulthood, to parenthood... Helping you navigate this is my specialty.


Lynn Zakeri

Are you or your child feeling anxious or worried? Sad or hopeless? Are you arguing too much with your spouse? Your child? Are you wondering where the communication went? Do you wish life was better? Easier? Or perhaps you just need some help setting and reaching goals.

My name is Lynn Renee Zakeri and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Making the first appointment is the hardest step, and I ensure that my clients are comfortable and at ease from the first contact. I feel that my strengths lie in my ability to make connections and foster a warm relationship, even with those who are apprehensive. This is because of the improvements and benefits seen almost immediately.

Using a cognitive behavioral approach, I have worked successfully with children, adolescents, young adults, parents and families. My style is practical, but also warm and engaging. Whether you have anxiety and worry, are feeling sad or depressed, or just want some help setting and reaching goals, I will connect with you, meet you where you are, and then help you move forward. If you see my “Practice” page on this site, you can read some more about my style and specialities. I am also more than willing to talk with you on the phone so that you might get a feel for who I am. I am flexible and am confident we can find an appointment time that works with your schedule, whether in Northfield or Skokie.
