Carol K (Anastasia) Kruse, MA, LCPC, NCC, Counselor in Oak Brook
Need hope, healing and practical solutions for problems making you feel depressed and anxious -- or in crisis? I help clients find energy, learn strategies and skills to keep going, do "the next right thing" and successfully manage difficult changes. I offer caring support during the losses and grief of transitions throughout your lifespan, whether you are struggling with relationships, job or health issues. You are not alone. There is a path to find a positive vision of the future. Let's move through the obstacles and make sure you have the resources you need on your way to peace and joy!
Working to build strong individual, couple and family relationships in premarital counseling, divorce prevention or post-divorce recovery develops opportunities to improve self-esteem, manage stress and ongoing conflicts. I am skilled in CBT, psychodynamic, Christian and EMDR treatment of trauma, domestic violence and PTSD to address underlying, complex disorders.
I also offer seasoned career counseling for college planning and on the job performance challenges, based on my experience as senior human resources executive, organizational development consultant and trainer. Lead Intimacy, Healing the Heart and Premarital workshops. Facilitate Singles and Divorce Support groups. Conference presenter, radio and television guest speaker.
