About Me

Hello, My name is Lois and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Illinois and Indiana. I have taken a very nontraditional career path over the years from Human Services, Early Intervention, Education and Counseling. I have worked in a variety of settings including residential, education, outpatient, in-home, and private practice. My myriad of professional experiences in both the public and private sectors have equipped me with a unique set of skills, a wealth of knowledge, and clinical expertise to aid others in moving towards the life they want to have.

I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy, using various techniques including motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and strength-based therapy. In utilizing these approaches, I focus on your internal strengths and resourcefulness and less on your weaknesses. This sets up a positive mindset that helps you be in control of your day-to-day life.

Finding the right therapist is just as important as finding the right home. If you’re looking for someone to walk with you through your struggles, create a non-judgmental environment, is warm and caring, a good listener and will stay with you every step of the way, then I’m the therapist for you.

Looking forward to walking this journey with you,

I was really struggling and Lois helped me get through it. I felt very comfortable with her and she really listened to me. I can’t recommend her enough.

Ms. Lois is so awesome!!! She is a great listener that is nonjudgemental. She has help me challenge my bad thoughts and encouraged me in the way I think about myself. She uses several techniques to help me in and outside of our sessions. She also researches topics she is unfamiliar with that I bring to her and will find away to help me with it. She is very sweet, kind, real and tactful versatile in her form of counseling. She is the best!!!

Amazing! She helps me to work through my problems and I come to the solution myself. But she gives me all the tools and questions to be able to do so with confidence. Very relatable and just amazing.
