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,

Reviews

Written by E.L. on Jun 29, 2020 after counseling with Lois for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Ms. Goudeau is very kind, non judgmental, stays informed about things I’m dealing with, will research unknown topics, and she is an all around great counselor. I could feel the love of God in her without her saying it. She also uses several techniques to show me how to address issues outside of our time together that are helping me to think clearer. I have enjoyed my sessions with her.
