Therapist in Lockport, Illinois Stephanie Grein, LCPC

Stephanie Grein, LCPC

My counseling approach reflects academic training, personal experience as an active duty military spouse and mother – all of these experiences shaped my outlook and foundational beliefs. I believe we are unique and complex with a variety of needs, but the baseline is rooted in human interaction comprised of caring, respect, acceptance, support, and understanding. We all possess the capacity for change from within. However, we sometimes need an external catalyst that a counselor may provide utilizing a safe and therapeutic environment comprised of genuineness and empathy. This approach complements my personal style and worldview in that it is without bias and acknowledges the uniqueness of our own experiences. Therefore, I utilize an integrated approach which is versatile, flexible, and universally applicable to an array of clinical issues. These approaches include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Narrative, Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma Focused, and Couples and Family Therapy.

My goal is to promote wellness and facilitate wholeness to maximize individual functionality and increase self-awareness of the connection between thoughts, emotions, physical experiences, and spirituality. I strive to empower clients by accentuating their strengths, moving beyond their limitations in order to realize greater life satisfaction and psychological wellness.

I earned my Master of Science Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Capella University and I am currently a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Illinois and a National Certified Counselor. I have worked with individuals and in group settings comprised of children, adolescents, and adults in residential treatment facilities, community mental health centers, and in outpatient counseling agencies. I specialize in working with individuals 14 years and older and I am passionate about working with student athletes, couples, and military members and their families.

I enjoy physical fitness, attending sporting events, being outdoors, digital scrapbooking, cooking, spending time with my husband, active teenagers and our two dogs and cats.
