Katie Kamholz, ATR-BC, LCPC, Counselor in Oak Park
Are you worried, sad, or stressed? Are you concerned about your child or your family? Are you wondering if counseling might help you or your family? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then let's explore further to see how I can best serve you and your family. I help young people and emerging adults learn and use creative problem solving skills to better cope with anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, trauma histories and attachment and relationship challenges.
For over ten years, I have been helping children, adolescents, adults, and families through challenging life situations and complex emotional issues in order to make choices that increase peace, wisdom, and wellbeing in themselves and in their relationships.
I see myself as a co-journeyer, someone to help carry the pack when it feels too heavy for one to handle, and to hold hope for you, your child, and your family as you make your way to stronger relationships, health, and wholeness.

Katie Kamholz's Groups

Surviving to Thriving

This art-based group is for survivors of sexual abuse, incest, or other sexual trauma to gain strength and healing through art making and a supportive and safe group environment.

More about this group

Mindful Parenting

This art-based therapy group is for parents (new to very experienced) to explore their own "parented past," how attachment styles were modeled within their family structure, and use their insights to develop healthy attachment styles within their own families and be a more mindful parent. We will be learning paper-making and book binding techniques as well as incorporating personal images and pictures to create an art family album that illustrates this exploration.
