Nikolous Kuster

LCPC

About Me

I am a Clinically Licensed Counselor (LCPC) in Illinois with 13 years of professional experience. I have worked with a wide variety of clients including adolescents, families, people who are involved with the justice system, couples, and individuals from all walks of life. I feel comfortable working with a wide variety of cultural populations and have an empathic, supportive approach in therapy. While I have worked with individuals dealing with all manner of diagnosable and life space issues, I have significant experience working with those struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, anger management, men's issues, life space changes/adaptation and family issues.

My treatment style is best described as eclectic; utilizing Humanistic, Client-Centered approaches to explore Cognitive-Behavioral issues. I am also very comfortable using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness techniques, and Narrative approaches to help my client address their concerns in the most dynamic and client led method available to me.

I would like to applaud the strength that it takes to seek out help and address your challenges, and the insight it takes to recognize them. I know that it feels overwhelming at the beginning of the journey; my hope is to provide you with the tools that you need to make positive growth and change in your life. I look forward to working with you.

Nick is without question a master of his craft. You won’t find a more sincere qualified therapist anywhere else. I would give him more stars if they were available.
