Hi, I’m Jennifer Valice
And I provide Individual and Family Counseling for children, adults and couples.
My Areas of Focus
Depression & Anxiety
Grief & Loss
Medical Diagnosis & Chronic Illness
Couples & Marriage Counseling
Parenting & Divorce
Through compassionate and active listening, I provide a relaxing space where you, your child, or your family member/caregiver can open up about the challenges you are experiencing. Together, we’ll identify the emotional, psychological, and behavioral impact, and explore how to effectively cope with these challenges.
Navigating the Pressures of Life
Whether you were recently diagnosed with a medical condition, or are considering divorce, have been living with it for several years, people with a chronic illness experience victories and defeats. They are burdened at times with social struggles, relationship strains, job challenges, financial concerns, and/or a poor quality of life. As a Therapist, I take a client-centered approach; meeting the client where they are at. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to identify potentially destructive thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. By doing so, clients can then explore and develop healthier coping strategies and ultimately change unhealthy/dysfunctional thoughts, emotions, and patterns of behavior, which will hopefully lead to a better quality of life.
I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology and Sociology at Central Michigan University. Following that, I earned my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Western Michigan University. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Illinois and I have over 12 years experience working as a Medical Social Worker.
