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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
