I am a therapist licensed in Illinois with nearly 10 years of experience. I view this work as helping people heal from hurts and move towards healthier choices and relationships to satisfy legitimate needs. I have worked with clients on issues including anxiety, transition and phase of life concerns, relationships, parenting and trauma.
I try to come from a perspective that views you as the expert on your life and I am here to help you learn, heal and change. I use a humanistic approach along with Choice Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral strategies to work towards those goals.
I hope that your choice is an easy one and I wish you well.

Has helped me alot! Great experience
So far we’ve only had one session but Raelene has been very helpful
Raelene is so comprehensive. I like the fact she tries to cover all the open points at each session. She also tries to answer to all my messages and sends me some Worksheets to push me to some reflections and make me understand more about oh our minds work.
I like that she is present and understanding during session. I never feel judged. She provides a safe calm place to process life events.
Just getting started, but I feel like having a sounding board and someone who knows what my issues are and what strategies to suggest has already been helpful.
She is insightful, gives a very neutral safe space to express ideas and feelings. I find her advice to be well grounded.
Raelene is great, she provides a safe space and gives helpful insight.
Talking to Raelene feels like talking to an old friend who isn't judgemental, understands you, empathised and offers great advice and ideas.
Raelene is an excellent counsellor. I have extremely high standards when it comes to counselling so it took me a long time to find someone who I was compatible with. She is good at listening and being where the client is at. I have truly overcome a lot in a very short amount of time. I have much better interpersonal relationships and a better outlook on life. I really appreciate everything that she was able to do for me.
She is very helpful and understanding
Amazing counsellor who frames and reframed my thoughts in such a helpful way.
She has helped me so much and is so understanding and kind.
I’ve been working with Raelene since the summer and she has been wonderful. She listens, is supportive, and gives helpful insight and advice. I would definitely recommend her! It only took a couple of sessions for me to feel completely comfortable talking with her, which I am very happy with since this is my first experience with a counselor.
All-in-all, Raelene has been a great counselor!
Raelene Faught has helped me in just a short time with her to find ways to control my anger, emotions and work though everyday life issues. She reminds me of my boundaries with others and encourages me a lot in our messages back and forth. She is supportive and is there when I need to talk. She is always there when I need someone to talk to quickly and responds as quick as she can.
Raelene is the best, she doesn't tell me how to solve my issues but helps guide me towards the right answers. Also lets me vent about nonsense half the time.
Shes the best.
She truly is amazing. I’ve struggled through so much and I consider Raelene someone I can easily open up to. Her tips are super helpful and I find that she offers a really personalized experience. Would highly recommend using her, especially if you’re younger (teens to late 20s) since she is relatable and really understands our generation.
Raelene listens and cut right to the point on things.
my first experience in therapy but it's better than what I expected
She always checks in on how Im doing almost daily and she addresses and provides solution for my major concerns and issues. I also feel comfortable engaging with her.
I've been working with Raelene for about 3-4 weeks now, and I have had an excellent experience! She's empathetic, patient, and just so sweet! I'd totally recommend her!
A wonderful and very empathetic councelor. I'm very glad to have been matched with her.
Raelene is more like a friend than a therapist. She always knows what to say to me when I'm upset and she always listens to me.
I have been involved in therapy since I was 16 and I have been looking for someone like Raelene. She is very intelligent and asks great questions. I feel as though she genuinely listens to what I say and adjusts accordingly. I am very particular in regards to what I feel I need from a therapist and Raelene is just that. I am very happy with my current experience and hope others find the same peace of mind.
Raelene is very understanding and compassionate. In the few weeks that she has been working with me, She was able to be the support that I needed while helping me determine my goals.
