Are you feeling paralyzed by anxiety or uncertainty? Are you feeling stuck in your daily life? Are you going through a major life transition? Do you want to get to know yourself better, or learn better tools for managing? If this sounds familiar to you, I might be the counselor for you! Many of my clients are people experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, PTSD, and adult ADHD, or those going through grief, stress, or a curveball life has thrown their way. I love having the opportunity to help people “lift the fog” after a difficult life experience, new diagnosis, or while struggling with mental health. I believe that I excel in helping clients feel comfortable and supported in the counseling process, and that I have a knack for connecting with people and helping them shift perspective in a way that improves their overall outlook on life. I have a thorough understanding of the deep roots that take hold in our inner-narratives and how it impacts our day-to-day lives, and my strengths lie in helping people navigate their way out of life’s difficult mazes. Have questions about counseling? Have questions for me specifically? Let’s chat and see if we are the right fit! I know how much courage it can take to make change, and if you are here, you have already taken an important step: acknowledging that you are searching for something. Let’s create change together.

Welcome! I'm Danielle. Take a moment to acknowledge you've taken the first step towards bettering your mental health because, let's be honest - starting therapy can be empowering, confusing, or scary, all at the same time. Try as we might, sometimes happiness and contentment always seem just out of reach. Depression, anxiety and stress can make getting out of bed in the morning a daunting task. Troubles in your relationship or conflict in the family can make you feel helpless or overwhelmed. Creating a daily routine using strategies that ground you and support moving forward in areas where you feel stuck. Improving your outlook on life to see past the stressful events that feel overwhelming. Talking through challenges and learning different ways to look at something in order to make progress, even when feeling depressed and anxious. As a therapist, it is my goal for clients to feel empowered and supported as we navigate through your journey to healing and wellness. I’m passionate about approaching therapy in a client centered way, and want each session to take you exactly where you need in that moment. My therapy approach is warm and accepting, focusing on establishing overall wellness. Therapy can seem daunting, we will go at a pace that is comfortable for you and discuss the topics you want. What are the tension points? Let's talk about those and develop a daily routine that grounds you and allows you to feel more in control of your life. I am here to listen and encourage you as you talk to support your healing and recovery.

I provide counseling services for clients seeking professional therapy while recognizing that God has an important role in personal healing. I want it to be evident to my clients that I am a Christian therapist who understands the power and grace God desires for his children. My goal is to help my clients discover the secrets of scripture written plainly for our instruction. When answers are lifted off the pages of God's love letter, it is energizingly freeing! The Bible is enough. Although I have been trained at a Master's Level by a University program and pursued a clinical license through Illinois and Missouri, I have learned that the Bible is the ultimate source for counseling through the most challenging times. Allow me to assist you in discovering God's instruction on how to positively restructure patterns of cognitive distortions and encourage behavior change so that you can experience peace of mind and joy. I specialize in working with those who struggle with anxiety, panic, addictions, OCD, sadness & depression and those looking to find purpose in life. As a solution-focused therapist, I am goal-oriented and vow not to misuse my time to reach set goals. I provide Online / Virtual Christian Counseling for Illinois and Missouri Residences. “The Word of God is sufficiently useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” ~ 2 Tim. 3:16.

Hello! I am Susan. Are you feeling stuck in life and defined by past traumas or mistakes? Do you find these issues affecting your ability to establish quality relationships? Does anxiety or depression feel like a constant companion? It is my goal to meet each individual where they are at in life and learn their story so that we can address the core issues and not just treat the surface symptoms. I work from a strengths-based approach as we identify barriers to progress and create a path forward to overcome those barriers. I love to meet each new client and feel humbled to bear witness to their stories and their healing. Seeking therapy can feel so intimidating. It takes great courage to face the memories and issues you may have avoided up until now. When we meet, it will be your goals and values that guide treatment. I will allow you to set the pace so that the process feels tolerable. It is one of the greatest privileges of my life to walk with others through hard places. I utilize a variety of evidence-based treatments depending on your needs and preferences. Let healing start now.
