Are you feeling overwhelmed, hurt, sad, angry, worried, or even heartbroken? Are you looking to get some things off your mind to a trusted professional? Have you experienced traumatic events or not even sure if it would be considered traumatic? We can find the answer to that together. I have approximately 4 years of experience working with adults and teenagers who experience all of the above concerns and more! I am here to help you find solutions and motivate you to find your own answers. Therapy should begin with you and your healing process should be guided by a therapist who is going to listen and help you see things about yourself you may not be able to see, and come up with solutions to your problems that are right for YOU! Therapy is not advice giving, but a process where you are in control of where the session goes, and you choose what you want to focus on. I will assist in providing the tools and be there to listen. I used a range of therapeutic techniques such as motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, solutions focused therapy, and eventually I will become certified in EMDR. You are not the same person as anyone else, therefore you will need a unique therapeutic approach that will fit your needs. I have experience with couples, anger management groups, parenting groups, children, families, and individuals across the lifespan. My specialty is working with adults and teenagers. If you are having any active suicidal thoughts, my remote practice may not be appropriate for you as we will not be meeting face to face, and you are urged to contact a crisis line instead. One simple crisis line is "988". If you would like to schedule a session, please send an email to Sabrinamarlow92@gmail.com or you can call 815-242-0250.

Hi I'm Regina Do you know that everyone feels overwhelmed; especially now. Balancing family, work demands, and life is challenging. Everyone experiences these things differently and may need some reminding of their own strengths. I am a highly trained therapist with many years of experience helping clients realize their own potential. My approach is filtered through a culturally rich and ethnically diverse lens. I'm gentle, empathic and meet my clients where they are at. Building upon past coping mechanisms will enable you to develop and find more effective ways of managing life stressors. Look, I get that everyone has some level of depression and anxiety. There are many interventions we can use from the traditional methods such as cognitive behavioral and solution-focused to the latest smart phone apps. I recognize that it will be hard work! But, through your hard work will be where true success comes.

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.

Hi! I'm Stacy. Do you ever struggle with memories from past experiences you've had? Do you have problems managing symptoms of anxiety and/or depression? How about trouble focusing or concentrating on tasks? I work with adults who struggle to cope with past traumatic (or emotionally overwhelming) experiences. I believe that our past experiences (good and bad) shape how we handle situations today. I use a patient-centered approach to focus on what is important to you. I have almost 7 years of experience working with military service men and women, veterans, first responders, and civilians with trauma, anxiety, and depression. I also really enjoy working with Step mom's because I am one myself. Asking for help is not an easy task, but I want you to know that I want to help you. I want to be a part of your team and support you through whatever life is throwing at you.

Life is challenging, you don’t need to navigate it by yourself. If you are bewildered and unsure of your life path, experiencing strained relationships, having difficulty “keeping up” and continually feeling overwhelmed, you are not alone. These are questions that many of my clients are searching for answers to. Life comes with many responsibilities and can be challenging to navigate. Children, adolescents and adults are becoming discouraged, lacking motivation, and frustrated by their commitments. Here are a few of the issues that I assist my clients with; I help children develop their social skills, and how to problem-solve situations, I help adolescents examine their choices in life and how to manage their emotions, and I work with adults to find purpose in life and develop self-care. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I will help guide you to identify your current concerns and to learn about your past to help us with the present. I will help identify your strengths and explore ways to use them to address life’s questions and challenges. Together we will formulate goals to address during our sessions.

Hi, I'm an IL Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and board Certified Rehabilitation Counselor with my Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling from Drake University. I have 15 years experience providing therapy in inpatient, community, home, and remote settings. I have worked with clients across the lifespan; however, I've found most children are best served with play therapy, which I do not know how to provide in a remote setting. I understand the difficulties of managing work, school, and personal relationships. I can help you develop the self esteem, compassion, mindfulness, and other skills necessary to meet your personal and professional goals and live your best life. My approach is eclectic; always informed by a multicultural, feminist, and strengths perspective. I believe a person's lived experience is strongly informed by their cultures and gender. I also believe people have the ability to work through their concerns. Sometimes we all need an unbiased person to listen and assist us through the process.
