Sarah Rudek, MA, LPC, Counselor in Deerfield
When you or your child/teen needs help, you want tools and strategies you can use today! I work with kids, teens, adults, couples, and families. Discovering how to change behaviors and ease stress is empowering! I teach my clients how to learn skills and strategies you need, so you feel successful on your own. Utilizing a strength-based approach, I help you learn positive coping skills, productive problem-solving, effective communication, positive behaviors, organizational skills, empathy/perspective-taking, and social skills. For adults, we work on increasing your confidence by improving your relationships, communication skills, and self-esteem.
I work with preschoolers to adults. With kids/teens, I encourage parents to provide current issue updates, so pressing struggles can be tackled in sessions. For adults, couples, and parents, you learn effective strategies to improve communication, assertiveness, and strength, so you can move on in life. Call/email today!
