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. I have an inclusive feminist background and am comfortable working with all genders. I believe that laughter is the best medicine and that everyone is capable of living the best life possible. I live in a multi dog/cat/parrot household and odds are good you will not just hear them but may occasionally see them. No worries they don’t judge and have been sworn to HIPAA secrecy.

Hi, nice to meet you; my name is Helen Roberts. I’ve been a therapist since 2000, graduating from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. I have a unique combination of 20-plus years of experience working with Christian Counseling, Trauma Treatment, Attachment Therapy, Sexual Addiction, Betrayal trauma, Couples, Adults, and children. I began seeing clients two years earlier while working as a secondary therapist with families having children at risk of being removed, as well as attachment issues. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), CBT with children, Attachment therapy, and as a Certified Sexual Addiction Therapist and many other modalities. I am board certified by the National Board of Certified Counselors. I started the Trauma and Recovery Center in Green Bay, WI. I was one the founding members of Peace Makers Ministries and Under His Wings Ministries, working with attachment issues, trauma recovery, and Christian counseling. In 2015, I began training as a Certified Sexual, Addiction Therapist (CSAT), supervised by Dr. Kenneth Adams. I was trained in Betrayal Trauma by Dr. Kevin Skinner. Since that time, I have continued to work with attachment, adoption issues, trauma issues, sexual addiction, pornography addiction, anxiety, depression, and betrayal trauma. These types of therapy mean that I can work with you if you have difficulty connecting with your mom or dad, saw or experienced abandonment or rejection, or were involved with a traumatic (to you) event. I work with children, couples, individuals, and families. You deserve recovery and healing with a well-trained therapist who specializes in the modalities for your healing. I know you may not know how to fix your situation or relationship right now, but I know how to help. Request an appointment today; let’s start the conversation.

Hi I'm Gaby. If you have been feeling sick and stuck in a negative thought process and wondering if there is anyone who can understand or help you, let's talk. I am here to help you experience change and escape from the pattern of life that has left you feeling different, unwell, and stuck. I am first and foremost a Trauma Informed Recovery Therapist. This means that I believe in you and I believe in your goals and I know we can find a way to get there while acknowledging all that you have been through. 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 love using a lot of different approaches depending on what we are working on. Some of my favorite methods are cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, strength based therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. 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.

My name is Daniel, and I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Illinois, where I have been providing mental health services for over 22 years. Regardless of your background, financial status, or the countless other aspects of yourself that make you unique, there is one universal fact that impacts us all: life is inherently unpredictable. We all face unexpected changes and events that range from extremely positive to brutally challenging, increasing our risk of feeling unprepared, isolated, and possibly overwhelmed, with no idea of what to do next. My training, skills, and years of experience enable me to help people deal with and move beyond the emotional fallout that often occurs during and after significant changes and events. These can commonly include anxiety, sadness, depression, grief, or negative self-image, and may result in the development of problematic coping strategies and issues related to self-confidence, motivation, communication, healthy relationships, or substance use. Everything we experience is based within the current context of our lives, including our age, gender, location, sexual identity, relationship status, financial position, job status, life stage transition, and physical health. It’s crucial to take all these aspects into careful consideration to make true and lasting progress. I work collaboratively with clients and am dedicated to creating an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes tremendous courage to seek happiness and even more to take the necessary steps. I’m here to guide and support you in your efforts.

Hello! I am a graduate from the University of Illinois School of Social Work Champaign-Urbana. I also received training at the Center for Family Studies/The Family Institute of Chicago and am a Fellow in the American Group Psychotherapy Association. As a senior clinician, I have logged numerous hours of training and practice in the provision of trauma informed care, serious mental illness and treatment for addictions, anxiety, and depression. My approach is cognitive, interpersonal, and trauma informed utilizing family systems theory and enhanced by many years of experience with diverse populations. I have expertise in working with adolescents and adults in both individual, couples, group, and family therapy. I believe if you can change how you think, you can change how you feel. I also believe humor is an important element in the change process. It helps one cope with problematic patterns and emotions in a way that is palatable to the soul, encouraging motivation for growth. It is important to be able to laugh as you grow in therapy, making the process less intimidating and more satisfying. Having me as your therapist will open up new ways of looking at yourself and encourage novel ways of thinking about the concerns that brought you into therapy. First, it is important to find relief, then hope, then the capacity to change what you want to improve in your life. You will know early on in therapy, if we are a good match for each other and whether I can help you make the changes in your life that you are wanting to accomplish.

Therapy is a safe place for a client to remove the masks that we all wear and begin to heal. For this to happen, I believe in providing a space of understanding, empathy, active listening, and kindness.

My goal is to support my clients through active listening and helping them reach their goals.There is nothing more exciting than helping people discover their potential, find peace in a chaotic world, and achieve life goals.

Many of these students are experiencing anxiety, school avoidance, depression, ptsd, peer conflict, and many other issues that can impact a student's ability to learn and flourish in an educational setting. I also have a strong foundation background in working with adult clients with chronic and severe mental illness and dual-integrated co-occurring disorders such as a schizophrenia, bipolar I and II .

Sometimes life becomes unmanageable on our own and we have to reach out for help. I am here to help normalize therapy and the discomfort that comes along with it. I am trained in EMDR, a modality used to help process traumatic memories and the cognitions associated with them. I specialize in working with individuals suffering from chronic anxiety, depression, complex trauma, emotional dysregulation, identity issues, addiction, LGBTQ+ issues, and everyday life stressors that can be difficult to manage. I provide a holistic approach in my practice utilizing methods from multiple modalities that include helping regulate emotions, manage anxiety and panic, and learning to heal from past trauma. I believe that it is crucial to look at things from a trauma-informed and cultural perspective in all aspects while working with individuals.

As a child, I always wanted to pursue a career where I could assist with an individual’s growth, creativity and happiness. I learned at a young age the struggles that life can bring, not only through the inevitable, but also through situational traumas that we at times have to face and endure. Being an active member in the clinical field of helping professionals, I have certainly learned the importance of patience, empathy and peace. Identifying and securing ones’ purpose in life, creates the true masterpiece of one’s story. My goal is to assist you in your journey to self-actualization. ​

Hi, my name is Stephanie! Life is not something we experience in a cookie-cutter manner. If you are struggling through any form of loss, weather loss of a loved one, identity, or pet loss you don’t have to do it alone. Sitting with grief takes vulnerability, which is something we can discover and process together. Discovering your sense of self and identity, particularly during a transitional time in your life can trigger untapped emotions. This may include discovering layers of your self. Together, we can create a safe space to explore aspects of who you are. My background is in dance/movement therapy and I am open to incorporating creativity into sessions. I use a body-focused lens in my practice, which can lead to a more intimate connection with the self.

Hi – I’m Vicki – do you ever find yourself feeling lost as you wander on a path that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere?

No matter how lost you’re feeling or how long you've struggled on your journey, please know that you CAN find your way. 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.

I have worked with adults and families in inpatient and outpatient settings as well as students enrolled in nursing school.

Life is hard. Everyone walks through tough times, and no one should have to do it alone. It is my goal to walk with my clients through trials and see them emerge a stronger, healthier version of themselves. It takes courage to ask for help, therefore everyone who walks through my door is treated with respect and met with empathy and compassion. As a therapist, I truly believe that mental, physical, and spiritual health are all interconnected in a way that cannot be separated. My approach is holistic, helping my clients to create a life they enjoy through focusing on all aspects of well-being for long lasting progress. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to encourage individuals of all ages, couples, and families to change their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors through practical and useful tools that can be used in everyday life. I aim to foster an environment of comfort and calm. My office is a judgement-free zone, where healing truly happens.
