We Are Currently Accepting New Clients in The State of Illinois.
Hi there! I’m Licia, I am a graduate from Capella University where I received a masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a wounded healer and enjoy sparking change in people’s lives and relationships.
It is my pleasure to help couples and families achieve relationship satisfaction. I help individuals and couples who feel powerless or feel like they have tried everything and no matter what they do it just leads to stress and frustration. In my approach, I believe that each individual in a relationship has their own individual thoughts and beliefs that are influenced by their family of origin. Together we will unpack family history, learn about attachment styles, explore individual love languages, and so much more to help you and your significant other redefine your relationship with new insight, excitement, and appreciation for one another.
I also enjoy working with families and supporting them in exploring transgenerational patterns, healing from childhood traumas, and establishing their own concept of “family” in a meaningful way. I believe that it is important to reflect on past generations to better understand one's own self including strengths and challenges. I utilize family genograms to help clients develop insight into family patterns that they perpetuate and work to break cycles that negatively impact their ability to have satisfactory relationships with others. I specialize in treating individuals, couples, and families dealing with complex trauma, family dysfunction, parenting skills, relationship distress, emotional and behavioral functioning, communication, intimacy, anxiety, depression, and family cohesion. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and incorporate a trauma sensitive lens in my work with all of my clients. Working with couples and families, I utilize systemic approaches such as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Narrative Therapy, Bowen’s Family System Theory, and Structural Family Therapy.
