8 years of experience

Hello, My name is Lois and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Illinois and Indiana. Finding the right therapist is just as important as finding the right home. If you’re looking for someone to walk with you through your struggles, create a non-judgmental environment, is warm and caring, a good listener and will stay with you every step of the way, then I’m the therapist for you. I have taken a very nontraditional career path over the years from Human Services, Early Intervention, Education and Counseling. I have worked in a variety of settings including residential, education, outpatient, in-home, and private practice. My myriad of professional experiences in both the public and private sectors have equipped me with a unique set of skills, a wealth of knowledge, and clinical expertise to aid others in moving towards the life they want to have. Looking forward to walking this journey with you

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, we'll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you're facing. This will help me create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy, using various techniques including motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and strength-based therapy. In utilizing these approaches, I focus on your internal strengths and resourcefulness and less on your weaknesses. This sets up a positive mindset that helps you be in control of your day-to-day life

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

The areas I feel are my biggest strengths are; Grief- Loved ones, Job, Pet, Relationship, Phase of Life, Anxiety- Over worry/Over thinking, Panic Attacks, Communication difficulty, and Depression.
