I spent 2 years working in crisis intervention. While meeting clients in the community I realized how important being part of a person’s follow up/ recovery was for me. This brought me to my 7 years as a therapist. A large portion of my focus has been personality disorders and professional burnout. Self-expression and mindfulness are two important components of DBT therapy. I believe in the importance of these practices in daily life. . Schedule your introductory message and we can begin our work today. I look forward to meeting you.

Welcome! I'm Douglas and I would appreciate the opportunity to help you get on track and stay on track. You want to be heard. You want to be understood. You want to be respected. You want someone on your side to help you in your life journey. You are always my priority. Research tells us that the top predictor of excellent clinical outcomes is therapeutic rapport. That means that a great clinical relationship with your therapist is more important than any particular treatment theory. I have experience with adult clients across a wide range of racial, ethnic, gender and socioeconomic spectrums, and have demonstrated the ability to make every client feel heard and understood on their terms. Mixing evidence-based methods and humor, we will address your priorities in a manner to help you make progress and help you to enjoy the journey. In my practice, we fight. I want to help you become a mental health warrior.

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 located just outside of downtown Libertyville off of Milwaukee Avenue in Forum Square. You can read more about my work and practice at www.epijennetics.com. As a therapist, I hold the belief that we cannot fully understand mental health without first understanding the impact of our stories, our relationships, and our beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world. I am passionate about helping clients increase their self-awareness of these things so that they are more in touch with their feelings, needs, and desires, and are more equipped 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.

Bottling up or stuffing down emotions can be overwhelming to teen girls and women, especially in today’s social climate. The people that you love the most are not always equipped to support you in ways that you need and deserve. The social stigma that most people have about therapy can deter you from seeking the help that you need and deserve.

As you embark on your journey, therapy can provide a safe and supportive space to explore, understand and challenge life experiences that shape our identities and perceptions of the world. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 6 years of experience providing therapy and other clinical services to individuals struggling with severe mental illness and addiction, I approach therapy from a holistic and multicultural perspective. As a Mexican and Filipino American woman, I draw on my personal experiences to better understand how cultural factors influence our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us. My goal is to build a respectful and collaborative partnership with my clients to support them on their journey towards healing and self-discovery. I firmly believe in addressing presenting issues by understanding the whole person, rather than just focusing on the problem. Using a strengths-based approach, along with evidence-based practices such as CBT, DBT, EMDR, mindfulness, and psychodynamic approaches, I work with my clients to identify thought patterns, regulate emotions, and build self-awareness to foster healing and self-compassion. I earned my Master of Social Work degree with a concentration in Mental Health from the Jane Addams College of Social Work, and have worked in a variety of settings, including residential care for addiction, outpatient addiction treatment facilities, and community mental health care. My diverse experiences and training have enabled me to build a creative work space that centers the person as a whole, providing a healing space where individuals can feel heard, honored, and understood.

I am a social worker with over 20 years of experience working with clients from infants (support to parents) to geriatrics. I believe that our thoughts are powerful to change our behavior. We often have been taught to "just change our behavior" and then we get down on ourselves when we can't. But if we work on changing our thoughts then we have much more success in changing our behavior. This can be very helpful for individuals with anxiety, depression, grief, personality challenges, trauma, couples, etc.

It takes a great deal of courage to admit that you feel different, that you are experiencing feelings of depression or anxiety, or you just feel off and would like to talk to someone who is trained and licensed to help you. College, family, relationships, and life and career goals are difficult no matter what stage of life you are in and sometimes it helps to talk to a professional who can teach you skills to manage your emotions or can listen to you without judgment. I am a licensed therapist who has been practicing for more than 15 years. I work with individuals, families, and couples. I have 57 hours post masters in gender studies and think that everyone has the right to live a life that they love and to be successful in their goals while navigating their place in this chaotic world we live in.

Hello, I’m erica! Whether we find ourselves at our stressed out breaking point, ready to process old wounds, or simply seeking to understand ourselves more deeply in order to build a life that we desire, each of us needs a place to lay down our stressors and talk out the problems that we face that feels safe, warm, and non-judgmental. For many of us, one of those places is with a trusted therapist. It can feel daunting to explore the idea of starting therapy; and yet, to even be sifting through therapists online shows already a level of hope, care for, and dedication to yourself and your wellbeing - what a meaningful moment! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Illinois, and earned my master’s degree in clinical social work from The University of Chicago. In my years of practice I have worked with adults who are struggling with the pressures of the world and the pain or trauma they have endured, are processing current or upcoming moments or seasons of change, and are overall seeking to find their own healing, hope, and beliefs. Most often my clients are looking to address anxiety and depression, trauma, perinatal mental health, self image and confidence, education and career direction and development, sexuality and sexual or gender identity, and cultural experience and identity. Regardless of what specifically you are seeking and carrying, I am honored to be invited to walk alongside you on your unique journey of healing and discovery. I seek to always offer warmth and a gentle and empathetic presence where you can feel free to explore whatever is on your mind or in your heart and know that it will be met not with judgment, but rather with compassion and care.

Ever since we have embarked on our journey through life, we may have had the opportunity to experience love, kindness, joy, or passion—but we may have also experienced pain, discomfort, anger, betrayal, tragedy, or grief. During the moments you’ve experienced the latter it’s very possible the events that took place have been frozen in your mind, making it impossible to forget or process. This may have left you feeling depressed, anxious, mistrusting, stagnant, or even scared. Please do not feel hopeless in your efforts to “fix” yourself. You are not broken or damaged. My goal as your therapist would be to support and empower you on your journey so you can develop a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you. As a trauma-informed therapist I place an emphasis on EMDR therapy but still hold an eclectic approach because your situation is unique. I am a holistic and culturally sensitive clinician who places a huge importance on building a trusting relationship with you to promote comfortability and security. I am not here to rush you through your process because it can take some time before you feel comfortable sharing. I have experience working with individuals who have trauma, depression, mood disorders, anxiety, relationship difficulties, and life transitioning issues. I am also a Reiki Practitioner and offer distance healing. Together we can explore and understand the reasoning being prominent issues while working towards healing and resolution. I would be honored to assist you on your journey through life.
