Mary (Katy) Bombard


About Me

I am an individual counselor licensed in the state of Illinois with over three years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients who have a wide variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, adjustment issues, and I am extremely passionate about helping women with perinatal disorders.

My personal style of counseling is warm, caring, and interactive. I treat everyone with respect, dignity, understanding, and compassion. I do not believe in judgement or labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, dialectical-behavioral, person centered, and psychodynamic theories. I adjust and work with my client to match their specific treatment goals and needs.

Seeking help takes incredible courage and strength. The hardest step towards personal growth and change is the first step. If you are ready, it will be my privilege to help you along your journey.

I look forward to working with you to help you attain your goals!

Katy is so wonderful. I’m so grateful to have matched with her and I truly appreciate the guidance and support she provides me with!

Mary has been extremely helpful, insightful and respectful durning my journey with Counseling. She checks in when I haven’t reached out in a minute, she’s responded to me on weekend nights when I questioned a parenting decision and she seems like an all around personable person - it makes me feel like I’m talking to a friend.

Mary was very intuitive during our very first session and had such a personal yet professional touch. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a counselor who is quickly insightful and understanding when starting back up with therapy if you have been out of touch for some time.
