Michelle Abraham, LPC, NCC

Meet Michelle

Life can be complicated, and sometimes we need help in resolving issues. Working through our past and negative feelings can feel like a weight is being lifted from our shoulders.

I specialize in working with individuals facing emotional, behavioral, and mental health challenges. I take a person-centered approach, allowing you to decide how we can help you feel better and develop a healthier perspective on overcoming the experiences that have brought about trauma, anxiety, anger, and mood difficulties.

I have experience working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and providing a comfortable and safe environment to help you express yourself without fear of judgment or shame so you can work towards the life you envision, even if it involves discussing difficult or painful thoughts.

I employ diverse treatment approaches, such as Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution, and Reality-based therapy. Our sessions are tailored to your current struggles and circumstances. With my expertise and training, I can provide practical tools and techniques to assist in coping with life's obstacles.

More About Michelle's Work

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Illinois and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I am providing play therapy services while working toward Play Therapy certification under the supervision of Jessica Bloom, LCPC, RPT-S.

I received my degree from National Louis University and have over 20 years experience working with families and children helping the family unit learn to work together. I have worked extensively doing programming in schools, vocationally, and in the community helping develop better relationships and cohesiveness within the family unit.

I have worked with multi-cultural issues within families as well as with the Special Needs population and individuals with developmental issues combined with mental health concerns.

I am a firm believer in acceptance of the individual as just that, while working to develop better relationships that lend to cohesiveness within the family unit.  I offer an open, judgement-free, safe environment as we work together.
