Therapist in Evanston, Illinois Veronica Pena, LPC

Veronica Pena, LPC

Veronica Pena is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Illinois. There are joys of being a parent and there are also the difficult, confusing, frustrating, and exhausting moments where you might feel like you don’t know what to do to help your child. Kids struggling with behavioral issues, anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem sometimes need an extra hand to help them navigate the difficulties in life. Veronica understands both childhood development and the complexities of parental struggles, and she can help your child have a better experience of their life. Veronica utilizes play therapy interventions with children ages 3-12 years old that allow them to develop and practice skills to cope with difficult experiences and emotions, have a better understanding of themselves, and tune into their natural resilience.

Veronica tailors her approach based on the needs of the child, teen, or family – truly meeting them where they’re at. Starting therapy can be difficult and vulnerable for anyone, and with the right therapist and approach, positive change is possible. Reach out to Veronica today and together you can work on finding ways to promote your child, teen, or family’s overall well-being. Outside of work, Veronica enjoys painting, baking, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.
