Welcome! I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Northern Illinois. I've been in practice since 2006. I specialize in treating adult individuals and couples who struggle with Anxiety, Self-Esteem Issues, Difficult Life Transitions, and Relationship Distress. My graduate training was at Texas Woman's University, where I earned an MS in Family Therapy. I did my concentrated practicum work with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. I relocated from Texas to Northern Illinois in 2010 with my husband and children. During COVID-19, I took my practice 100% telehealth, which has allowed me to connect with even more people than ever before.

I’m an LCSW (licensed clinical social worker) and I’ve been in the social work field for almost a decade, with about 3 years of those years specifically as a therapist. During my time I’ve worked with many populations, such as individuals who have/are; ■ been in foster care, or are fostering ■ geriatric and/or physically or cognitively disabled, and their caregivers/guardians ■ re-entering communities from incarceration ■ receiving special education services, and their caregivers/guardians ■ challenged by substance use (specifically opioids, and alcohol) ■ experienced physical and/or sexual abuse, and their loved ones and, ■ experienced intimate partner violence (also known as domestic violence). Currently as a therapist my work involves individuals ■ experiencing irritability and/or rigidity towards loved ones without a clear understanding of why, ■ who have a hard time with creating and implementing boundaries, ■ who believe they are tight-knit with their family yet do not feel understood and feel alone, ■ low self-esteem, and ■ feeling lost in their current stage of life. I consider therapy to be a form (because there are so many others!) of healing and connecting (with oneself). A form that I am called to as a practitioner, and that I am so happy to be able to walk alongside my clients. When I’m not seeing clients, I am eating helado de coco (de agua!) with my two kiddos, catching a play in the city, or crossing things off my bucket list!

Hello! I am Rebecca, a therapist practicing in Illinois. In 2013 I graduated from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology with my Master's degree. I received training in EMDR by the EMDR Institute. Currently, I practice 100% telehealth, so we can work together no matter where you live. I see clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, life changes, grief for the loss of a human or pet, and trauma. We all make changes when we are ready. Change can be difficult, and it's not all forward movement. I'm a very laid-back therapist, and provide a safe, judgement-free space where I'll work with you by listening, questioning, and using curiosity. I can help by teaching you skills, discussing decisions, and helping you learn how to change the way you think about yourself, other people, and the world. If appropriate, I can help you with traumatic experiences by providing EMDR and "parts" work. Give yourself the gift of therapy. Explore new ways of seeing things, new ways to manage emotions, new ways of communicating with others, and new ways to care for yourself.

Hi, I am Jenn, and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Certified Telemental Health Provider, and the owner of Epijennetics Counseling and Consulting in Libertyville, Illinois. Epijennetics Counseling is about to open an office for in-person appointments but will be only accepting virtual appointments for the next month. You can read more about my work and practice at www.epijennetics.com. I am passionate about helping clients increase their self-awareness so that they are more in touch with their feelings, needs, and desires, and equipping them with the knowledge and tools to create the life that they want. By utilizing assessments such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to better understand personality and the Young Schema Assessment to explore harmful thoughts and beliefs that came from previous experiences and messages received during childhood years, I help clients discover hidden obstacles that keep them from having the life they dream of. I have found that when we put in the work to make sense of ourselves and our stories, we not only heal and grow ourselves but also develop more compassion and increased understanding of others. Often this growth and healing process lessens mental health symptoms such as anxiety and depression and improves overall quality of life, as well as relationship quality. If you are interested in doing some exploring, I would love to hear from you! (Please note that I am not offering Couple's Therapy or Family Therapy through Grow Therapy. If you are interested in these services please reach out directly through www.epijennetics.com.

I am committed to walking beside you and helping you find your unique path to create a life full of wellness, personal growth, joy and meaning.

Hi I am Gaby, a licensed clinical professional counselor, I earned my master’s degree in Community Counseling at Loyola University Chicago. I realized I wanted to become a therapist during a serendipitous summer camp experience—40 feet in the air on the high ropes course, I learned that I loved helping people process challenging experiences in creative ways. I have been doing individual therapy with teens and adults of all ages since 2020. Previously, I worked as a clinical consultant, clinical director, and clinical supervisor in specialized mental health rehabilitation settings. I have been supporting people in creating and meeting their goals since 2012. I have used all of my past work experiences to learn how to work with clients to explore dreams, and strengths, and learn how to make these things their reality. I use eclectic strategies to support people as they sort through their lives and figure out ways to move forward in a new light. I believe that therapy is a special space that allows a person to sit, process, and problem-solve in a way that can’t always be done in day-to-day. Those who know me best would describe me as someone who goes with the flow but still takes time to stop and climb some trees. In my spare time, I can be found with my husband and three boys ideally outside kayaking down a river or cross-country skiing in the woods. I also enjoy running, biking, gardening, and cooking.

"Hello and Welcome! Let me start by introducing myself. I am Yvonne Jaquet, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Certified Advance Alcohol and Drug Counselor with 18 years of professional experience which also includes working with incarcerated individuals. Before reaching the “professional” status, I worked for 20 years as a parent, and counselor to families with at-risk adolescents. Let me ask you a quick question…."What brings you here today?" A tough question for some, but whatever leads you to explore treatment let me say, "You are brave." My goal for you is to have a good experience in a non-judgmental space where you feel safe and heard. My areas of specialties include mental health such as depression, anxiety, trauma, parenting, challenging relationships, anger management, addictive/drug abuse behaviors and life transitions of men and women. There is no perfect "cooking cutter" plan for life, but a transformation is possible with a little determination. I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) techniques to help clients reframe thoughts leading to negative outcomes, along with mindfulness methods to reduce the anxiety that comes along with life changes either self-inflicted or out of our control such as trauma and grief. Another method used is Motivational Interviewing to help draw out and explore a client's experiences, perspectives and beliefs by encouraging changes and empowering you. As you contemplate your goals to become a better you, I would be honored to be part of it. I look forward to meeting you soon.

Do you ever feel paralyzed by your emotions? One moment you are content, then a random stressor comes along and hijacks both your body and thoughts. This leaves you not knowing what to do next and wondering if all of your past accomplishments were just by chance. Not only are you second guessing yourself, your body also feels like it’s been through a full body workout. You have every intention to cope and work on yourself, but you are just way too exhausted and aren’t quite sure where to start. I can relate to these very human experiences and can partner with you to change the way you think and feel. Our emotions serve many vital functions, but often prompt a physical response that can impact the way we view the world. By implementing simple evidenced based strategies to your life at a pace that works for you, you will have the opportunity to confront your emotions with confidence and learn how growth happens when we take a step outside of our comfort zone. With over 13 years of diverse clinical experience with a focus on treating Addiction, Trauma, Anxiety, and Mood Disorders in a hospital setting, I bring you a flexible and creative approach that is curated to your specific needs. While I am open and honored to work with any type of symptom presentation, my niche is working with individuals who have struggled with trauma, addiction, and those that have been impacted by addiction. I hope you will consider scheduling an intake with me to see if we would be a good fit for your wellness journey, please check out my booking link. I look forward to meeting you!

I provide collaborative telehealth counseling services to individuals and couples. Unresolved pain and fear from "doin' life" fuels anger, anxiety, and addictive behaviors that destroy relationships and turn life into a “cardboard dirt sandwich with a side of sawdust.” I use Narrative Therapy to help people separate themselves (and their friends and family) from the problems that plague their lives, allowing people to externalize their issues rather than hiding them in the depths of their souls. You are NOT the problem. Other people are NOT the problem. Problems are problems. Your problems do not define you. Your interpretation of your problems, the outcomes of your problems, and your attempts to solve your problems heavily influence your identity, self-esteem, emotional stability, and how you react behaviorally. Behaviors impact relationships which impact our ability to enjoy life. I also use Existential, Rational-Emotive Behavioral, Client-Centered, and Gestalt Therapy techniques to help you become an expert of YOU while embracing your values, dreams, skills, and desires to live the life that you designed. Together we identify solutions to problems via alternative stories of your past, present, and future life, widen and balance your view of yourself, provide you with an authentic purpose in life, challenge old and unhealthy beliefs with new and more accurate conceptions, and open your mind to new ways of "doin' life" that reflect a more accurate and healthier story of you.

Right now you are probably scared. You know something needs to change, but you don’t know where to start. You don't know if this works and you're at the point where you are afraid that nothing will work. We have all been there, me included. I understand and I do not judge. I have been a clinical therapist for the past 20 years. In my time I have worked with adolescents, adults, couples, geriatric patients, and LGBTIQQ individuals.

Hello and welcome to my profile! I received my doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2005 and I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist in Illinois and Nevada. I enjoy working with patients to foster personal growth and to help them feel more empowered to overcome life struggles. Our goal in working together is to help you gain insight for the future, so you can lead a more fulfilling life. My clinical interests and experience include working with eating and body image struggles, trauma, fertility/pregnancy, and relationship issues, but I also have experiences working with life transitions, depression and anxiety. Coping with trying to navigate relationships, life events and your inner self can be difficult. Together, as a team, we will focus on manifesting that change and explore how to make those changes through new ways of feeling and thinking. I view therapy as tending to a garden. We all have times when we feel withered and have not been tending enough to our own needs and relationships. We lose touch with ourselves and/or others, lacking the nourishment and support we need to flourish. Therapy is about picking the weeds out, feeding the soul and invigorating your growth to become a more healthy being. It is not easy to ask for help or to take the first step to seek a more fulfilling and happier life. My goal as a therapist is to harness that courage and work towards a better understanding of yourself and cultivate strategies to lead a more integrated life.

When I'm not working with clients, I can be found playing the cello, guitar, or piano; hiking with my family; or perfecting my deviled egg recipe.

I believe strength resides in all of us. I can and will be at times very blunt and to the point, but I do know that this is your life being discussed not mine.

Hi I’m Gina! Do you know that everyone feels overwhelmed from time to time? Balancing the demands of life, family, and work can be challenging. I have PhD and MSW from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am a highly trained therapist with experience helping people recover and achieve their personal and professional goals. My approach is filtered through a culturally diverse lens that views all clients as having the ability to work through challenges. Sometimes all you need is a little help to move forward. Building upon your strengths and past coping mechanisms will help you develop better ways of managing stress and conflict. Issues such as depression and anxiety are very common. There are many interventions we can use such as journaling, meditation, cognitive behavioral, family systems and solution focused therapy that can be used to tackle the issues affecting your emotional wellbeing. I know that seeking therapy can feel scary, but you are making the right decision. Contact me today so we can discuss how therapy can help you.

If you've never been in therapy before, I know it can be a scary step. Be proud of your bravery. If you have been in therapy before, I'm glad you chose to return. Either way, my job is to help you find your strengths to learn to manage any issues you are dealing with so you can find your peace again. It is a journey and it won't always be easy but it will be worth it. I have been a therapist and a psychology professor for almost 30 years. I have worked with children, teens, and adults, although I have spent the majority of my career working with teens. I enjoy teens. I have a lot of patience for them. I believe in psychoeducation in therapy. I think that it's not only important to understand what you are doing but why you are doing it. Only by understanding both can you make the changes necessary for long-term happiness. I also believe in working on both the present and the past. I want to help you figure out how to make the present better immediately, while also working to understand anything from your past that may have helped lead to any current issues. Working on both in combination will give the most thorough explanation and avenue for effective treatment. Most importantly, I believe in working together. I may be the "expert" but only you know what is working and what isn't. I will ask you for feedback and I will listen to what you have to say.

I am a trans and queer Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and artist with 13 years of experience in community mental health. The approach I take to therapy is that all people deserve to have the opportunity to experience a safe, kind, and welcoming space to explore their mental health, and that as a therapist, it is my job to nurture that. I am driven to create therapeutic opportunities for all people who want and need them and specialize in working with the LGBTQ2IA+ community. I am open to working with all clients that find themselves in need of an understanding, compassionate, and community-oriented therapist who will help to guide them to and through healing work. My areas of focus are: working with LGBTQ2IA+ and TGNC (Transgender & Gender Non-Conforming) youth and emerging adults as well as working with those experiencing major life transitions, trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, ADHD, gender dysphoria, and sexual identity exploration. I completed my Master of Social Work (MSW) and Master of Arts in Gender Studies (MA) degrees concurrently at Loyola University Chicago. Prior to entering graduate school, I worked and volunteered in multiple positions focused on reproductive justice, body autonomy, and community care. After graduating, I worked in a housing program with people experiencing chronic homelessness who are HIV positive. My life and professional experiences have led me to provide therapy with a focus on community care through an anti oppressive lense. I understand that helping one person can have a positive impact on the greater community surrounding them. I believe that treatment approaches should fit the individual's needs and thus I utilize many modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and narrative therapy. My approaches of curiosity and kindness create a welcoming space to engage in therapy. Choosing to work with a new therapist is a powerful way to not just help yourself, but to help those around you as well. We all deserve a chance to have focused time to explore, learn, and grow through challenges. If you feel that you are ready to begin the work, schedule an appointment with me today!
