Elizabeth A Marklein, MA, LCPC, Counselor in Chicago
I recognize that change can be challenging, and it takes courage to seek support. I will work to understand your concerns, responding in an effort to deepen self-understanding while also providing practical techniques to manage current symptoms and stress. Together we will tailor treatment to your individual needs, working to understand your goals and challenges, examining patterns in your relationships, and exploring beliefs about yourself. Understanding these issues facilitates positive change toward personal and professional goals.
I enjoy working with individuals who enjoy learning more about themselves. I have been successful in treating issues related to self-esteem and self-worth, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, and parenthood. I frequently work with students, young adults, and new parents around adjustment to life transitions.
I am in-network with BCBS PPO. My office is conveniently located in downtown Chicago near the "Grand" red line el stop and about a 10 minute walk from the Clark/Lake el stop.
