Katie N Hepner, MS, NCC, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in McHenry
Hello, my name is Katie Hepner and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been in the field for 12 years and I am currently working as a school counselor in a middle school. I have a special interest in school refusal and to assist in making the educational experience more enjoyable. I also work with individuals with concerns related to depression, anxiety, stress management, life transitions and parent/child relationships. Being a breast cancer survivor, I also have experience and insight into what it means to have cancer and the worries or struggles that come with it.
My goal is to help individuals connect with their inner strengths and their authentic selves so that they can move forward with living life, instead of just surviving it. I would be honored to be a part of that process for you.
My focus is creating a comfortable and therapeutic environment where you are empowered to make positive changes. In addition to traditional psychotherapy, I incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy and strategies of mindfulness. If you are looking to uplift your mood; or reduce stress and anxiety, contact me to schedule an initial consultation.
Take the first step to help. Call or Email Katie N Hepner now - (815) 315-1548
