Holly A. Mattingly, MS Ed, LCPC

Progressive Counselor in Oak Brook IL

My specialized training in understanding how both the conscious and subconscious mind works lends an advantage over other therapies that may only deal with surface issues. While talking can be helpful and mental clarity can be achieved that way, repeating the same things over and over while expecting a different result is not in your best interest. A different perspective is necessary and relief can be found by clearing the negative emotions from traumatic or disturbing events that have been experienced. Expect to be delighted when you notice that your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are changing for the better. Sometimes immediately, and sometimes gradually, always cumulatively, changes that benefit you continue to happen as we meet together.

My objective is to identify the core cause of any distress so that together we can uncover the underlying cause of the pain and release it for good. Whether you’re looking for a safe and secure environment to talk to someone, or maybe you are ready to release a trauma, belief or habit, I’m here for you. Please feel free to reach out.
