Christina Manolatos

(MA, LPC, NBCCH)

About Me

My goal is to provide comfort and care for you as well as a safe and non-judgmental space to talk about everything and anything. Sometimes we just want someone to listen, and even that alone can be therapeutic. I am willing to listen to you and help you understand your thoughts and feelings better. You are not alone; allow me to be there for you.

As a psychotherapist I am trained in working with individuals, as well as groups to help them manage a range of psychological and emotional issues ranging from anxiety disorders to psychosis. Having completed my MSc in Counseling Psychology and Psychotherapy, I am capable of understanding inner conflicts as well as addressing each person’s thought process, feelings and behavior with respect, sensitivity and empathy. During these years, I have learned how to work with issues of diversity in different settings, as well as how to deal with crisis or conflict. I have worked in settings such as mental health hospital, college setting, worked with the unemployed population, as well as the incarcerated.
I hold an LPC license from Wisconsin as well as Illinois, and I am a Licensed Clinical Hypnotherapist . My counseling style is warm and empathetic, and I am highly influencedby the existential/humanistic approach, while incorporating brain-based techniques.

Reviews

Written by J.E. on May 03, 2020 after counseling with Christina for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, and grief

I had been looking for a counselor for years that I felt I could connect with and could offer help that I needed. I finally found that in Christina. She has been understanding but also honest, I have learned a lot from her and I am grateful for her support. I would highly recommend Christina.
