John Corso, MSW, LCSW

  
My name is John B. Corso.  I am an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) with a Masters of Social Work degree from the University of Illinois.  My experience in the mental health field has included work at a homeless shelter, substance abuse rehabilitation center, corporate EAP (employee assistance program) and in a psychiatric nursing and rehabilitation center (present).  I have worked as a case worker, in health care administration, as an internship supervisor, program director and one-to- one counselor.  My background includes service to America through the US Army and Army National Guard.  I feel that the patient holds many of the answers to their challenges and a solid therapeutic relationship can help bring those answers to light.  My therapeutic approach is based on focusing on the client’s strengths and available resources.   
  

Robin Zazove, MS Ed, MA, LPC

My name is Robin Zazove.  I am a LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) with master’s degrees in Clinical Psychology (Roosevelt University) and College Student Affairs (Eastern Illinois University).  My experience in the mental health field includes work with hospice and palliative care, nursing homes, and private practice/outpatient counseling.  In addition to my role at ORD, I also serve as the Bereavement Coordinator for a local hospice agency, overseeing grief support services, community education, and the Ethics Committee.  Prior to entering the mental health field, I worked with college students and families through university admissions/new student orientation but made the decision to change careers after experiencing the illness and loss of close family members.  I believe that we all experience difficult times in life, and sometimes a little extra help can make a big difference. 
  

Jordan White, LSW

  
My name is Jordan White. I am a LSW (Licensed Social Worker) with a Masters degree in Social Work (Dominican University) and a Bachelors degree in Social Work (Northeastern Illinois University). My experience in the mental health field includes work with corporate EAP (Employee Assistance Program), private practice, Psycho-Social rehabilitation centers, and schools. In addition to my role with ORD, I am a Clinical Associate with a local EAP (Employee Assistance Program). I believe in meeting my clients where they are at. I work with clients to understand their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. I work with clients to understand and identify the core issues that clients struggle with and how clients can deal with them to meet their goals. I aim to remove the stigma from mental health services and believe that everyone can benefit from therapy from time to time. It is important to me that I help treat the whole person, recognizing and developing strengths, and using those strengths to improve one's life. From working with members of the LGBT community to working with children in schools, I help my clients become their best and authentic selves and succeed in their day-to-day lives.
