About Me

Hello, My name is Lois and I am a Christian and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Illinois and Indiana. God has taken me on a very nontraditional career path over the years from Human Services, Early Intervention, Education and landing as a Christian Counselor. I have worked in a variety of settings including residential, education, outpatient, in-home, and private practice. My myriad of professional experiences in both the public and private sectors have equipped me with a unique set of skills, a wealth of knowledge, and clinical expertise to aid others in moving towards the life they want to have.

Christianity is not just something I do on Sundays, but it's a lifestyle for me and I incorporate counseling theories with biblically sound teachings.

I use an eclectic approach to therapy, using various techniques including motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and strength-based therapy. In utilizing these approaches, I focus on your internal strengths and resourcefulness and less on your weaknesses. This sets up a positive mindset that helps you be in control of your day-to-day life.


Finding the right therapist is just as important as finding the right home. If you’re looking for someone to walk with you through your struggles, create a non-judgmental environment, is warm and caring, a good listener and will stay with you every step of the way, then I’m the therapist for you.

Looking forward to walking this journey with you,
