Monica Emlund


Hello! My name is Monica, and I am available to see individual clients. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Trinity Christian College as well as a Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Governors State University. Counseling is a second career for me after working in the corporate world in a Human Resources capacity for over 20 years. It is essential for me to understand a client’s worldview which includes experiences from their cultural upbringing and their individual life experiences. I work from a person-centered approach, providing a safe, non-judgmental, and empathic space for clients. I enjoy helping clients find their true authentic selves. I have experience working with individuals as well as groups. I have experience facilitating support groups for separation and divorce, anxiety and depression, as well as grief work. I also completed an internship and volunteered at the Crisis Center for South Suburbia (a 24-hour residential shelter for victims of domestic violence). Are you seeking counseling to work through stress, anxiety, relationship issues, life adjustment issues, inner child work, codependency, self-esteem, or empowerment? If you answered yes, I am available for in-person sessions at both our Homer Glen and Beverly locations as well as telehealth.
