Patty Dirilten, LCSW, CADC
Hello, I am Patty Dirilten and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been developing as a social worker for over half of my life. I have worked with youth and adults struggling with crisis, trauma, substance abuse, anxiety and depression. 

I am a Certified Alcohol and Other Drug Counselor, and I am a true social worker at heart!   I believe that any change is possible through a good therapeutic alliance, the desire to move through difficulties, and seeing a person as a whole within the systems in which they are a part. My genuineness is what has afforded me the ability to connect with people and to continue to grow as a clinician. 

I have been fortunate enough to be able to begin learning about Firefighter Psychological Support from Sarah Gura, and I look forward to adding this work to my current body of experience to enrich the application of Evidenced-Based Practices I use with my clients. 

I am currently available to work with new clients at the Burr Ridge location.
