Hi there! I am Amanda Rodriguez, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Illinois. I am passionate about the field of counseling in order to help others gain insight and empowerment. When traumatic experiences happen, it can sometimes get stored in unconscious patterns, muscle tension, and conflictual relationships with others. You know there’s a better version of you that awaits unveiling. I believe it too. I am always so grateful and privileged to stand beside someone as they uncover their truths, enhance their identities, break free from shame and guilt, and live the life they’ve always wanted. In my approach, we work together collaboratively to meet your goals and improve your overall sense of well-being. You deserve it!
I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology and a minor in Sociology in 2013. I pursued my graduate degree from Adler University and graduated with a Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2018. Thereafter, I received training from the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing International Association to provide EMDR therapy in Spring 2020. I have received training and attunement as a Reiki Master through Zanti Reiki and am a Certified Sex Therapy Informed Professional through Evergreen Certifications. I love utilizing a blended approach to counseling to best serve diverse client needs.
I am of Colombian, Mexican, and Japanese descent and am honored to practice in the ancestral wisdom of healing.
I have a pitbull boxer mix named Summer and 2 cats, Lucy and Bella.
