Beth Wrobel, LCPC
Beth Wrobel received her Master’s in Community Counseling from Northeastern Illinois University. Born & raised in Oregon, she moved to here while finishing her undergraduate degree. Her love of the natural world has inspired her to find hidden gems of nature around the Chicagoland area & Midwest, while also gaining a keen & deep appreciation for the diversity of all people in the big city of Chicago.
Working in higher education for many years has allowed Beth to work with college students studying abroad in the US from all over the world & from very diverse backgrounds, which has greatly influenced her clinical practice & given her a global perspective in her work & personal life. She enjoys a bicultural Polish/American household & has lived/worked with cultural adjustment issues very closely. She has a deep appreciation of differences in all people & celebrates these multitudes.
Beth’s ideal guest is someone on the threshold of change who is ready to move forward.
She enjoys working with younger guests through developmental transitions & identity exploration, but has also assisted individuals, couples & families working through midlife troubles, issues with family, work, parenting, relationships & more, including issues related to relational/family problems, gender, depression & anxiety. Beth has a special interest in issues related to cultural adjustment, identity & outreach to diverse populations.
Her approach to therapy is highly integrative, combining strength-based, person-centered approaches while utilizing Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. She strives to create a supportive atmosphere to help clients feel comfortable, safe & relaxed as well as create a supportive relationship where guests can be challenged when necessary. Additionally, Beth believes in collaborating with guests to help them identify & meet their goals.
Beth’s strengths include providing a nonjudgmental space, empathic listening, engendering trust in clients & providing care of the whole person.
Outside of the studio, Beth enjoys living an active life & is often seen walking her Pekingese with her husband, walking with friends, going to the gym or hiking in nature. She recently discovered a class at her gym called “BodyCombat,” which she fell in love with so much that she’s been going to her gym at 5:30am to attend! She loves all ethnic food & has a sweet tooth. She loves public radio & listening to podcasts/audiobooks as well as reading traditional books. That doesn’t leave much time to watch TV, but her go-to’s are reruns of Frasier & Seinfeld when she needs a laugh.
Beth is currently accepting new guests at our Naperville studio.
