About Michele Quattrocchi
Are you feeling stuck? Are you going through something that feels all consuming? Do you seem to be repeating the same undesired patterns? Is your difficulty coping with stress impacting your daily life and ability to communicate with those you love? Do you feel overwhelmed and unable to manage your emotions? Does sleep feel like a rare luxury? Michele is here to help!
Michele grew up in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago and appreciates how challenging it can be to cope with the variety of challenges and stressors life can bring. Michele is passionate about working with adults as they seek to improve and augment their sense of self and quality of life through empowering her clients to make the changes they desire.
As a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC), Michele has a well-rounded background in clinical treatment working with clients 18 and older, individually, and in the group setting. She has extensive experience working with those struggling with mood disorders, anxiety, depression, grief, chronic pain/chronic illness, family conflict, addiction, poor stress management, communication skill deficits, trauma, and difficulty adjusting to major life changes. She has worked with clients in residential programs, home-based care, and outpatient environments.
Michele is experienced in providing client-centered counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused techniques, and dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT). She has a Bachelor’s of Arts degree from DePaul University (Chicago, IL) in Psychology with a Human Services specialization and a Master’s of Arts degree from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (Chicago, IL) in Counseling.
Michele's approach as a therapist is non-judgmental, empathetic, educational, and inviting to create a trusting, reciprocal relationship to those she supports. She finds it important to identify your personal strengths and draw off of those, in order to enhance the ability to reach desired therapy outcomes, by augmenting one’s own belief in their potential to change and grow.
You are the expert on you and Michele is the professional in behavior. Michele believes that together, you can meet in the middle, in order to create the change you desire most! She believes it is important to understand one’s behavior, thoughts, and emotions, in order to live a life that reflects your core values and most authentic, genuine self.
Through a collaborative dynamic, Michele will support you in achieving your identified treatment results. Healing begins with hearing your story, learning about what makes you an individual, and what you hope to accomplish in therapy. It takes time to build a strong foundation of trust and openness.
Michele hopes to bring empowerment and improvements to your quality of life. Therapy, similar to life, can be difficult and uncomfortable at times. Michele believe what gets us to the inconsequential and significant marvels is enduring, learning, and growing from the difficult uncomfortable moments leading to lasting fulfillment, joy, and content.
In her spare time, Michele enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons, reading,
attending live concerts or comedy shows, and traveling.
