Email about Geraldine 

Geraldine Taylor-Filer is a licensed clinical social worker and certified alcohol drug counselor who earned her bachelor’s degree in Social Work at George Williams College, her master’s degree in Social Work at Aurora University, and her CADC certification from the Illinois Certification Board. Having experienced her mental health struggles as a teen, Geraldine was inspired to become a therapist to help others deal with issues of their own.

Before coming to Willis CC, Geraldine spent 22 years working with inpatient clients at Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital. At Willis CC, she looks forward to working with everyone from young adults to the elderly. She simply loves being with people, exploring their lives, and assisting them with their growth and development.

Those who know Geraldine best would describe her as calm, curious, and flexible. Her goals as a therapist are to help provide guests with the education and intervention needed to enable true growth and development—and ultimately, positive change in their lives.

Hailing from Chicago, IL, Geraldine enjoys dining out, walking through the Morton Arboretum, and spending time with her family, not to mention her aunt’s wonderful pies, spending summers in Indiana, and enjoying the outdoors. She also looks back fondly on her time in Paris, where she visited her daughter who was studying to be certified as Cordon Bleu.
