Runs Private Practice in Clinical Psychology, Founder of the Center for Conscious Counseling

Runs Private Practice in Clinical Psychology, Founder of the Center for Conscious Counseling

Dr. Ralph Whetstine

Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from The Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Chicago in 2005

Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from The Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Chicago in 2003

Founder and President at the Center for Conscious Counseling

“The core curriculum at The Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Chicago provided a healthy foundation of understanding,”

Runs Private Practice in Clinical Psychology, Founder of the Center for Conscious Counseling

Dr. Ralph Whetstine, founder and president at the Center for Conscious Counseling, was named a “Top Doctor in Schaumburg” in January 2017 and was equally acknowledged for his specialization in using both Cognitive and Dialectical Behavior Therapies. 

Dr. Whetstine is a clinical psychologist in private practice in Schaumburg, Illinois. His approach includes a practical, interactive, and solution-focused approach to providing support and feedback to aid clients in resolving their problems.  He describes his treatment philosophy as a blend of “conventional and alternative approaches,” which he provides with compassion and sensitivity to help his clients find solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues. 

Dr. Whetstine’s career includes work as a therapist at the Anixter Center’s New Focus Program, a post-acute brain injury rehabilitation program in Chicago.  He later moved to a position as a residential manager working with persons with moderate to severe developmental disabilities. Dr. Whetstine was a staff therapist at both the Family Counseling Center of Joliet, Illinois and also for Alexian Brother's Behavioral Health Hospital in Hoffman Estates, Illinois in both the Self-Injury Recovery Services (SIRS) program and in the Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Programs. He also took a position as an adjunct faculty.  During this time, he founded his private practice in the spring of 2006. 

When he began searching for an advanced degree programs that met certain criteria having to do with training, reputation, and a reasonable timeline for completion, Dr. Whetstine selected the program at The Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University |Chicago.

He states, “the core curriculum provided a healthy foundation for understanding basic concepts in clinical psychology, while also providing a healthy diversity of alternative approaches and knowledge to enrich the core skills I felt I needed to be successful.” Dr. Whetstine adds that input from faculty, particularly Dr. Eli Schwartz, was instrumental to deriving the most from his experience in school. He recommends that students seek out connections with their faculty who can offer both guidance and mentoring.

Dr. Whetstine acknowledges that the completion of the dissertation was a difficult task and recommends that students on this path start their process early.  “The faculty and staff were supportive through their flexibility and understanding of the external challenges that can frequently arise in life.” 

“The practical benefits of my education are that, each day I get to do what I want and love and I owe much of this success to the education I received at [Argosy University].”  Dr. Whetstine notes, however, that, “if you want to own your own private practice, there is a lot you will need to learn. Learning the basics of business such as communication, marketing, accounting, payroll, and good business ethics can be an invaluable adjunct to those whose aspirations include starting their own practice.” 

Dr. Whetstine places a special emphasis on the skill of writing and recommends that students “fall in love with the process of learning and writing—these skills will service you both inside and outside your career.” 

Dr. Whetstine earned two degrees from The Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University |Chicago—a   Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology in 2003 and a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology in 2005.  When it comes to pursuing the doctoral degree he says, “It’s a personal decision.  Achieving the doctoral level had always been part of my personal vision and I can say it was worth the extra time and effort it took to achieve.”

Programs, credential levels, technology, and scheduling options vary by school and are subject to change.
