Anthony Silker


Anthony (Tony) Silker, MA, Mental Health Professional

Lakeview Counselor

Hello, my name is Tony! I spent about 10 years providing local neighborhood services in the Uptown and Rogers Park neighborhoods with a special focus on family support and housing concerns. As an ordained minister, I worked in conjunction with local legislators, schools, and nonprofit agencies to help enhance physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing for people of all walks of life.

I hold an MSW from Jane Addams at UIC, and an MA in Theology from Moody Theological Seminary. I have experience in the family court system and in a publicly funded domestic violence response agency, as well as long term familiarity with Chicago Public Schools and other urban mainstays.

We may be a good fit for one another if you enjoy talking to someone who is enthusiastic with an active sense of humor. I care deeply about helping clients to find creative ways to use their voice.

My approach typically involves helping clients think differently about the environment that surrounds them through attentive listening and psychoeducation. Exploring your world with a team-mate can be exciting and satisfying.

Tony Silker’s goal is to help people reach their full potential in life. Call (888) 870-1775 to schedule an appointment with him.

I am available for appointments at the Lakeview Illinois office in Chicago.
