Dr. George Didier, III, is a clinical psychologist, pastoral psychotherapist and a diplomate Jungian Analyst in private practice in Rockford, Crystal Lake, and Chicago, IL. After graduate studies he was ordained a catholic priest and served the Diocese of Rockford for 10 years. During this time, he also went back to school and earned a doctorate in pastoral psychotherapy. He left the priesthood after 10 years, married and changed careers, going back to school again to earn a doctorate in clinical psychology. After graduation he worked as a psychologist and teacher at the University of Illinois, College of Medicine, Rockford, while developing his private practice. Dr. Didier was a founding member of the Center for Wholistic Counseling at Resurrection, in Woodstock, IL, serving as clinical director of the Center from 1995 to 2007.

Dr. Didier’s area of specialization includes working with mood and anxiety disorders, mind/body wellness, trauma and life transitions, relationship difficulties, including gay and lesbian issues, and crises in personal and spiritual growth. He provides psychotherapy and Jungian psychoanalysis with individuals, adolescence, couples and families. With over 25 years of serving and working with individuals, couples, and families he has focused his attention and specialized in the exploration and interfacing of depth psychology and spirituality. At this intersection he has had additional training in meditation, breath work and transpersonal psychology.

Stephen Martz, DMin

My analytic interests are broad.  Like many of my colleagues, I have a deep appreciation for the classical tradition of Jungian analysis, with its abiding interest in dreams and other activations of the unconscious.  At the same time, my original training in self psychology and psychoanalysis provided me with a strong developmental foundation that has focused my work more broadly than the customary Jungian emphasis on mid-life.  Indeed, I confess continuing fondness for contemporary psychoanalysis, and my years of teaching aspiring therapists at Loyola's Institute of Pastoral Studies has provided me an appreciation for the Existential and Gestalt traditions.  (I even use a bit of the cognitive-behavioral therapies, especially ACT, from time to time.)

I work primarily with adult individuals (and an occasional couple -- I am also trained in marriage and family therapy).  My case load usually includes 20-somethings through 80-somethings.  Easily the largest part of my practice is with clinicians and clergy.  Because I am an Episcopal priest and spent 20 years in parish ministry, I have a good deal of experience working at the intersection of psychology and spirituality; it is fair to say religion and spirituality is my strongest clinical interest.  I especially enjoy working with unconventional spiritualities.  As a priest, I've never fit comfortably in the institutional church, but I am drawn deeply into its inner truths, especially those understood by its mystics and expressed in its rituals.
