I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with a Masters Degree in Human Services from National Louis University, Evanston, IL. My emphasis is in Addictions Counseling. I am an Illinois State Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor (CADC). I spent the first half of my career working in a variety of clinical modalities which allowed me to receive a wide range of clinical experiences such as: The Harbour, a shelter for adolescent girls, most of whom were court appointed residents; WRS, an Inpatient Residential Chemical Dependency Program for women and their children, located in Lake County; Omni Youth Servies (adolescent, individual and family counseling) working in both Lake and Cook counties; Western Lake DUI Services in Lake and McHenry County; and an independent contractor for an area group private practice in the NW suburbs. I began my private practice career in 2001 and have been on my own since 2009 in the Lake/Cook County Area. I recently co-founded and co-own Selah Healthercare Professionals, LLC, of Barrington, IL in October 2013, as well as continue to own and operate Elizabeth J Kowieksi, LCPC private practice at the same location as SHP, LLC.
I understand what it takes to be commited to a marriage relationship and parenting together. I view marital and pre-marital counseling as sacred and an honor. I am for both of you to receive the help, support and direction you are looking for and deserve. It is a privilege to participate in your marriage counseling at any level of health or struggle.
I have been married to my husband, Greg, for over 30 years. We have 3 adult children, love to travel and love to give back to our local and global community in a variety of ways.
