Kelsey LaNou

Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)

I hold a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from Louisiana State University and am a licensed clinical social worker in Illinois. Additionally, I hold a masters certificate in LGBT Studies from Northern Illinois University. I have previously worked in the areas of education, inpatient psychiatric medicine, and outpatient community mental health. I utilize various treatment modalities, including cognitive restructuring, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and EMDR. I enjoy working with individuals across the lifespan with a specific interest in maternal mental health.

I believe in a client-centered approach that honors your unique experiences, strengths, and aspirations. I strive to empower you with the tools and insights needed to foster meaningful change, and to navigate life with resilience, authenticity, and a renewed sense of purpose. My goal is not just to alleviate symptoms, but to cultivate lasting transformation and enhance your overall well-being. I employ a direct therapy style focused on empowering clients to initiate and sustain positive change. Rooted in collaboration and action-oriented strategies, my approach is characterized by its clarity, engagement, and solution-focused techniques. This approach encourages clients to actively participate in their own healing and growth. Together, we'll uncover your strengths, build upon them, and empower you to overcome obstacles, cultivate self-awareness, and lead a more fulfilling life.
