About Me

My name is Rita Seggelke and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Illinois. I have been a Social Worker for over 30 years. I graduated from the U. of I. in 1988 with a specialty in Child Welfare and additional certification in School Social Work. I received my LCSW in 1991.

My experience includes many years working with families experiencing various problems including, divorce; child abuse or neglect; blended family issues; custody/marital issues; general relationship issues; career issues and major life transitions.

I am a certified Life Coach, a former Hospice Social Worker and have been a Red Cross volunteer. I have deployed to several National disasters including, Hurricane Sandy and Hurricane Harvey.

I enjoy working with women who are divorced, widowed or never married and looking to enrich their lives with new possibilities. Finally, I am a Christian and available to discuss your presenting issues from a faith-based perspective, if that is your preference.

I am a therapist, who is compassionate and a good listener. I look forward to meeting you and developing a relationship that will be rewarding and help you reach YOUR stated goals.

Hi Rita I'm Brittaney Johnson. I was matched with you. I would love to talk to you about my mental health. I don't have a credit card to pay online. And I don't have anyone else to talk to. Is there's another way I can pay you?
