About

Hi, my name is Elena Makarenko. I work with a wide variety of clients, such as couples, adults, and children addressing a wide range of needs including depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship issues. I have an experience working with families on all levels addressing their emotional needs throughout all spectrums of their lives.
I have graduated from Purdue Northwest with my Bachelor of Art in Human Development & Family Services, with minor in Psychology and I am currently enrolled in the Social Work program at IUN. I use an eclectic, systems focused and strength-based approach in working with clients to fit their identified needs. My clinical interests lie in working with couples.
I invite you to make a first step into a new exciting journey of discovering new you and be true to who you are!
