I am an Army Veteran, licensed clinical professional counselor, and national certified counselor through the NBCC with over 6 years of direct individual/group practice licensed in Illinois and overall 10 years of experience working as a crisis, substance use, and mental health counselor in the field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, career challenges, and substance use. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is very welcoming and inviting. I believe in honoring the values of respect, sensitivity, compassion, empathy and embracing a holistic point of view to promote mental wellness. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, dialectical-behavioral, existential and CRA counseling. I will customize our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to make the steps towards a more fulfilling and happier life and embrace change. If you are ready to take that leap into a healthier mind, body, and soul, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you in your new journey!

Candyce is great to talk to and always has good advice
I have made substantial progress while working with Candyce. Thank you so much for guiding me through the fog and back into the light!!
Love Candyce! She’s easy to talk to and asks all the right questions. In just one session I felt like she helped me so much!
So far so good
Candyce is literally a God-send. She was and is exactly what I’ve been needing for my healing journey. She is incredibly validating and very acknowledging.
She’s very easy to talk to and a very comfortable vibe while in session with Candyce. She’s great at what she does and she’s helping me gain better perspective on the reasons why I started therapy. Great job Candyce!
We haven’t worked together long but she’s been extremely helpful. She has the kind of empathy and humanity you can’t learn from a book.
Candyce has the perfect balance between friendly and professional, which was one of the aspects I feared most before starting therapy. I really enjoy talking with her, it feels like we are just having a discussion for the most part, but then something so tought-provoking comes up, that I end up thinking about until our next session. I am not at the point where all my problems are solved, as it's a bit early for that, but I can actually hope that at some point my soul will feel that much lighter, and a lot of my problems will have solutions to them. I have faith in the dynamic we have together, and that is so much more than what I had before!
I'd not had great experiences with therapists before, but Candyce has changed that. She's open, accessable and it's easy to feel comfortable with her. I've found her style of therapy a great help, and have found her so much easier to open up to than previous therapists.
In the three weeks I've started this I've had positive changes with Candyce's help. I'm grateful to have matched with a therapist who is caring, attentive and kind in their approach. I feel comfortable talking to her. To me that is one of the most important parts of doing therapy. She made me feel at ease to speak. She's a great therapist!
