About this Service

Hi! My name is Ednina, and I am an Illinois Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, and Professional School Counselor with over 6 years experience working with adolescents, adults, and couples with concerns ranging from anxiety, depression, and social/ relationship issues, to academic/ career challenges, and substance abuse problems. My experience also includes working with those in the LGBTQ community and with individuals suffering from abuse and PTSD.

My counseling approach is Person-Centered, meaning that I believe that everyone has a natural motivation to grow in positive ways and the ability to carry out that growth process. I use theories and interventions primarily from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, which addresses changing thoughts, feelings and behaviors which cause distress; Rational Emotive Therapy, which focuses on changing beliefs so that they reflect more moderate, healthy emotions and behaviors; and aspects of Reality therapy, which involves exploring and evaluating wants and choices to determine if they are realistic and attainable.

I enjoy working with individuals from various cultural backgrounds and strive to create an environment that is accepting, caring, and safe. I believe that counseling should be interactive, and is best viewed as a collaborative venture wherein clients feel free to express themselves, are guided in determining achievable goals, and are assisted in finding more adaptable ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving which lead to a more harmonious and satisfying life.

I look forward to walking with you along this journey!
