Is it difficult to find your voice and navigate the never-ending obstacles that are hindering your growth? Are you ready to change the behaviors that are keeping you from being your best self? Your journey to healing begins here. If you're ready, let's connect!
I believe in creating a safe, non-judgmental space where clients feel free to let their true selves be seen. We all innately crave love, connection, and healthy relationships. We were not created to do life alone. I view each person as a holistic being, considering your mental, physical, relational, emotional, and spiritual health as we journey together towards healing, growth, and a meaningful life.
My name is Carmen Martinez, Bilingual Counselor Intern at Holistically Divine Counseling pursuing a master’s in clinical psychology at Benedictine University. I deeply believe all humans have a purpose, a God-given talent, ability, desire, and light within them to be the best version of themselves and the natural will to live their best lives possible throughout their journey. Sometimes, that light within can become dim and distant due to life’s struggles, challenges, and adversities.
My name is Kevin Angulo, Licensed Professional Counselor at Holistically Divine Counseling. I wholeheartedly believe that all humans have an innate value. The beliefs I hold about humans are precisely what have led me to pursue a career as a mental health professional. The intrinsic value we all possess can sometimes be lost or forgotten. Adversity and pain not only rob individuals of their self-worth, but also keeps them from becoming the best version of themselves. It is my job to provide the space and support others may need to rediscover their inherent value and overcome adversity.
Does your toddler, preschooler or elementary school aged child ignore your instructions? Do they whine, argue, fight with siblings, hit, or bite? Are you exhausted, do you have disagreements with your significant other about how to deal with these issues, or are you a single parent feeling overwhelmed and unsupported?
I believe that the purpose of therapy is creating an effective, working relationship where we are constantly striving towards being the very best version of ourselves. Sometimes we get stuck in a rut and need assistance. I am here to support you on your newfound journey. I found my passion for therapy as an undergraduate student at a predominantly White, small-town college in Iowa. While learning about depression and PTSD in a psychology course, I realized there were so many people of color that I knew back in Chicago who struggled with these issues and were not receiving treatment because of issues related to systematic oppression.
“Why am I overwhelmed? What’s wrong with me? I should be over my anxiety by now.” Can you relate? My name is Candice Beaton and I am an expert in all things anxiety. By coming to a session with me, you will finally be able to grasp your situation and learn tools to manage anxiety and stress in relationships with yourself and others, at work, and with family.
Are you struggling to heal from a past trauma? Is depression is making it hard to stay motivated and feel confident. Or, is your anxiety making it difficult to navigate school or work? If these questions resonate with you, I can help. I offer virtual mental health counseling and career coaching because I am passionate about helping teens and adults navigate trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, life transitions, and career development.
Maybe you've asked yourself, why can't I shake these feelings? The difficulty concentrating, worrying, sadness, crying spells, feeling empty or just stuck. Or have you thought, when will I get over this? I'm tired of having flashbacks, feeling "on edge" and restless nights. Perhaps you've considered "OK, now what?" after the divorce, unexpected loss, new job, a recent diagnosis, infidelity, or navigating this space of uncertainty and pandemic related changes. Whether it's a relational struggle, figuring out your happiness, exploring your faith and everything else in between, you do have a choice in creating the life you desire!
