Therapist in Northfield, Illinois

Tanner Hoegh, MS, LPC (LCPC), NCC, C-DBT.

I’m a Child, Adolescent, and Adult Therapist with four years of experience practicing. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Grand View University in Des Moines, IA, and subsequently earned my Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Minnesota State-Mankato. I spent my first year as a therapist working with a family agency providing therapy to adolescents, young adults, and adults while simultaneously working as a therapist for the Minnesota Department of Corrections. Following my start in graduate school, I moved to the North Shore area to continue working with family agencies and private practices for the past 3 years.

I aim to help people of all ages set goals for themselves and achieve them by talking them through on a week-to-week basis. As a therapist who practices “Motivational Interviewing”, my main objective is to understand the changes you’re trying to make and help you develop a plan to make it happen. An old saying goes “If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for life”. My focus is to help clients make progress consistently and find their own solutions to problems as they come. By learning how to change, and be successful in it, we feed ourselves for life.

Outside of my work as a therapist, during the COVID-19 pandemic, I made psychoeducational videos from home to help people who might not have access to mental health education while sheltering in place. The short educational videos I made during this time reached a significant audience of young people and adults worldwide. By the end of the series of videos, they had been viewed by roughly 50-70 million people around the globe and I gained a following of around 2 million people interested in learning more about mental health. This led to the publishing of my book “Chaotic Happiness” by Penguin Random House which was released everywhere books are sold worldwide.

Working with people on their goals and helping them overcome challenges has brought so many great things to my life. If you or a loved one is working on making changes big or small, I’d be honored to encourage and support you along the way.
