Do you have past experiences that even after an extended period of time cause distress? Do thoughts of the painful experience come to mind even when you don’t want them to; even when you work really hard to push them away? It is hard knowing what to do in such moments. I am here to help guide you through the process of healing from past experiences. Together we will work on helping you to heal in a way that those past painful experiences no longer interfere with your daily life; allowing you the opportunity to lead the fulfilling, quality life that you deserve!
I'm Monica McCombs, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Indiana, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Illinois, and a National Certified Counselor (NCC) intensively trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I believe that people inherently have the tools to lead a successful, fulfilling life, but those tools are at times temporarily inaccessible due to emotional, situational, and cognitive influences. My goal is to lead you through the process of identifying such influences and working diligently to overcome them.
I specialize in working with individuals struggling with emotional dysregulation including depression and anxiety, trauma responses, low self-esteem, relational difficulties, and life stressors.
At times it may feel as if you are alone in coping with your emotional struggles or in seeking support for those you love. I invite you to allow me to embark on the road to recovery and a life worth living with you. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
