Your Pathway to Emotional Health

Clinical Counseling in our Warrenville Office

As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor I utilize the modern approaches of evidenced based counseling, and integrate them with proven methods of experiential therapy. Cognitive-behavioral approaches are used to help you change your “self-talk” and change you belief patterns. The result is a new way of thinking and responding to both current stressors, fears about the future and regret or shame over the past.

Experiential approaches of energy psychology, including Reiki Integrated Therapy, and the Emotional Freedom Technique, and Sound/Color Therapies can change your life. I have discovered, it is not enough to just talk about solutions, it is also important to create healing form within and exprience solutions before ever leaving the office.  You can activate your greatest attributes, and I can help you.

I want to answer your questions about clinical counseling or professional hypnosis. Below are just some of the services offered. Please call me at (815) 342-1224 and let me answer those questions and schedule your first appointment.
