Anna Lyman, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, State of Illinois # 180011103 


I believe the therapeutic process guides individuals to develop greater self-esteem and self-compassion, improve communication skills, increase empathy and gain a sense of hope.  My dedication in supporting individuals address depression, anxiety, identity, life transitions, trauma, and relationship issues and incorporates a combination of theoretical approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy, talk therapy, art therapy, mindfulness and motivational interviewing.  I believe we can collaboratively create a reflective, non-judgmental therapeutic relationship whereby clients can develop skills, effective communication, and increased self-awareness. 


 I have over 7 years of experience community mental health and privation and vocational rehabilitation settings working with individuals from a variety of cultural and spiritual backgrounds.  I have also completed 40 hours of training in Sexual Assault and Violence Crisis Intervention, trauma training, and medical and legal advocacy. 


I strives to meet clients where they are, collaborate, listen, and support clients in understanding the challenges they face and making changes that improve their quality of life.

Education:  Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling from Michigan State University .
