We work with older children (10+), adolescents, and adults in individual, parenting, and psycho-educational group sessions. In counseling, Jennifer will work with you hand-in-hand to identify problem and goal areas to live a more fulfilling, relaxing, and healthier life. Her foundational approach is rooted in mindfulness, trauma, and attachment styles for an integrative approach to each client. There is also an interweaving of cognitive-behavioral therapy, which incorporate support activities outside of the session so that you can start applying your desired changes in your life. Jennifer also can provide yoga and other body-oriented exercises (e.g., relaxation, guided imagery, hypnotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, meditation, forest therapy walks, expressive arts, etc.) in your sessions.

The Benefits of Counseling, Insurance and Employee Assistance Program Information, & What to Expect in a Counseling Session Follow Below
What are the Benefits of Counseling?
- Having a better sense of yourself and your goals
- Learning new and different ways to achieve your goals
- Managing stress and other emotional problems effectively
- Developing a holistic/integrative approach to caring for yourself: body, mind, and spirit
- Improving communication with others—both expressing your ideas and listening to others
- Establishing health boundaries with others
- Boosting your self-confidence and self-esteem
- Resolving inner conflicts and relationship issues
- Re-inventing yourself and/or concept of family after major life changes (e.g., moving, new career, break-up/divorce, marriage, baby, blended families, death of loved one, etc.)
- Recognizing and moving through resistance, treatment interfering behaviors, self-sabotaging, or self-limiting behaviors in therapy and in your life—without disturbing the status quo, there will be minimal change
- Being okay with emotions and sensations that come up in therapy or in your life outside of the therapy office—it is quite normal to have painful memories come forth; it is a natural part of the therapeutic process where you come to recognize that your shadow self (i.e., what we tend to deny about ourselves/what is holding you back from the life you want) wants to be healed
Insurances & Employee Assistance Programs Accepted
For counseling, we currently accept the following insurance carriers: Aetna, Anthem, Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and Blue Choice, Cigna, TriCare East, and United Behavioral Health/Optum Health. We also can provide you a superbill to submit to your insurance company if we are Out-of-Network or simply do self-pay. You can contact the office directly at 630-526-4325 to set up an appointment.
What to Expect During Counseling Sessions
Time-frame: Counseling sessions usually last around 50 minutes depending on the service. Sessions can be longer if needed and covered by your insurance or by using self-pay. Kindly be advised that we book each client for 60 minutes but also need to take payment, schedule your next appointment, and make progress notes during that hour. The number of sessions depends on your particular areas of concern, your goals for therapeutic change, and the amount of sessions your medical insurance company will allow. Please check with your medical insurance company regarding mental health benefits for more information so that we can provide you with the best treatment plan that maximizes your time. Usually a client will be in therapy for about a few to several months or more as it takes some time to settle in, build a working relationship with a therapist, and start working on your goals.
Content: We will discuss your current issue(s) that brought you to therapy, explore your past and how it relates to the present, and create action plans based on your short-term and long-term goals. Sometimes figuring out what your goals are and relating your past to the present can take a quite a few sessions. There are benefits and risks to looking at yourself as counseling will bring you face-to-face with whatever needs healing. With subsequent sessions, we will review your progress with chosen interventions and determine future steps.
Support and Participation: What is considered "big T" and "little t" traumatic situations happen in an isolated state or frame of mind. Therefore, trauma or dis-ease/dis-order is healed in relationship with a caring and knowledgeable helper, and your therapist is a skilled navigator with you in the driver's seat. By relating to your struggles and helping you to personally grow from them, we can create growth and transformation. In this process, the client will need to put effort over time into that change. Change can sometimes be difficult but it always requires active participation on the part of the client. All in all, the therapist supports this change by providing interpersonal connection, tools, and guidance throughout the process.
In other words, counseling is a shared relationship and a microcosm (a smaller version) of what happens in your other relationships in the greater world. Know that it is normal to be triggered by your therapist in the therapeutic relationship; it's called transference. And, therapy provides you that safe environment to work through any transference issues and your goals by expressing your perspective and needs as well as transforming the limiting beliefs and actions into more adaptable ways of thinking, feeling, and acting in your life. This is your time to be a self-advocate and speak up for yourself.
Counseling Approach: Our counseling style uses research-based methods such as:
- mindfulness-based cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT with elements of ACT)
- trauma-informed practices including Somatic Experiencing, attachment theories, and hypnotherapy
- integration of yoga and other Eastern therapies (meditation, self-applied acupressure, sound healing)
- solution-focused, strengths-based, resource-building
- individual, parenting, and psycho-educational group settings
- touch therapy for nervous system regulation
- incorporating forest therapy walks as an adjunct to counseling (forest therapy is not what people consider counseling/therapy, yet has many stress relieving benefits)
Each client will need or choose different types of care based on their presenting problems. We tailor our approach with your preferences in mind . We have many options for you and work from a trauma-informed perspective of client choice.
