You are exactly where you need to be even though it may not feel that way and everything you need to overcome and move through this chapter in life is with you. My job is to help you unfold that, sometimes give a little push, and help you regain balance. I utilize an integrative and holistic approach, based on your personality, needs and the area of concern. Therefore, treatment is different for each person and may be Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), or Systems, but often experiential incorporating the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual dimensions of your being.
I received my Doctorate Degree in Clinical Psychology from Argosy University and my Master’s in Clinical Counseling Psychology from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology. My experiences have been with a wide variety of clients and topics and I enjoy the richness of working with individuals from all walks of life. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have additional questions.
As a therapist, I strive to ensure that the largest influence on your life story is your genuine self, not judgment, worry, fear, or external entities. To do this, I help you: identify what has held you down or is holding you back, discard unnecessary judgment, and leave behind what no longer serves you, so that you can embrace positive change.
My therapeutic style is holistic, considering the whole person instead of focusing solely on psychological symptoms. I utilize a variety of behavioral and experiential therapies and techniques, which I tailor to
the unique and specific needs of my clients. My career path has afforded me the great fortune of working with clients from many different walks of life, addressing a spectrum of topics in a variety of settings.
I have provided individual, family, and group counseling for adolescents and adults, as well as crisis management support. The seeds of my career were planted when I was a 19-year-old undergraduate at
Illinois State University; I volunteered with a crisis hotline and never looked back. I went on to received my Master’s Degree in School Counseling and Clinical Counseling from Lewis University and committed
myself to helping others craft a life they can look back on with satisfaction.
We are all the authors of our own life story; but sometimes we lose our pen, get writers block, or let someone or something else take over our narrative. My job is to make sure that your pen is firmly in your grasp and that the story you are writing is truly your own, free of judgment or bias and full of honesty and insight. We can’t go back and change the beginning, but we can start where you are and change the ending.
Lee Carr, LCPC
I have a M.A. in Counseling and believe in striving to meet clients wherever they are along their journey and working together to create a treatment plan that utilizes a holistic therapeutic approach. Together, we will tailor your care to meet your specific needs and address your concerns. My background in trauma-focused therapy allows me to take proven techniques from this branch of therapy and apply them across the board to each client’s unique needs, whether trauma related or not. I strive to take the time to get to know you and tailor your treatment specifically to your needs, while providing a safe and judgement-free therapeutic environment.
To assist you in becoming more attuned to and aware of your behaviors and environment, I utilize various therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and Mindfulness. I am able to apply these approaches across a diverse group of clients including individuals, couples, adolescents, and adults.
I view therapy not as a way to bandage or fix something that you feel is wrong with you or your relationships. Rather, I view therapy as a way to gain more effective tools to begin building towards gaining more positive outlook on life, especially when we may feel at our lowest. My goal is to help you understand your concerns and experiences so you may learn and grow to gain a greater sense of self.
Jennifer Kamprath, LPC
I believe that everyone can benefit from therapy. We can all feel lost, scared, confused, or overwhelmed by what life has thrown at us. I strive to provide a safe and accepting space, free of judgement where you can express your thoughts, feelings, fears, and desires. Together we can identify strengths, develop coping skills, and utilize resiliency in working towards feeling more confident in navigating life’s challenges. I utilize an eclectic and humanistic approach based upon each individual’s needs and concerns. This allows me to draw from mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, as well as solution focused ideas to meet you exactly where you are. Together we will work to identify areas for growth on the path to finding your best self.
I received my Master’s Degree in Counseling with a specialization in Mental Health Counseling from Adler University and have worked with a wide scope of clients helping each of them to manage and understand their inner battles. I have also worked as part of a team to provide crisis support and stabilization. I am committed to helping others create positive change in their lives. I look forward to continuing to do this work and helping you find fulfillment in your own life.

Therapy is an essential way to develop the tools necessary to navigate one’s life. In our work together, I will provide a safe space to be able to allow you to look at each aspect of your life, and find ways to help you evolve into the person you want to be. I utilize an integrative and holistic approach, taking into account your individual needs and expectations for therapy. Whether utilizing Existentialism, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), or Person-Centered approach I believe I can create a therapeutic environment that will provide both support, and a space to work through the obstacles that are getting in the way of your journey.
