Linette Howard, MA, LCPC, SEP, Counselor in Glen Ellyn
I am passionate about helping children find their own unique voice, having consulted to teachers and parents and having worked extensively with children over two decades. I coach parents on effective ways to help their children. With children I treat behavioral problems, learning difficulties, anxiety, poor self-esteem, emotional and performance issues, social challenges, and trauma. I work with adults who experience anxiety, relationships difficulties, and trauma in their lives. I want my clients, children and adults, to reach their potential and goals. I enjoy helping them get to a place where life can be good, healing can happen and joy can be found.
I tailor my approach to the client's needs and use a variety of therapeutic methods, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Play Therapy, Expressive Therapies, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and Somatic Experiencing (SE). I assist the whole person - mind, body, emotions, and spirit - in healing from difficult life events while increasing resiliency.
We offer Yoga Group Therapy through our practice to enhance the work an client does in individual therapy.
