Rachel Borsellino, Owner

JD, MA, LCPC, NCPC

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), Nationally Certified Parenting Coordinator (NCPC), and a Certified Mediator with the state of Illinois.  I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in criminal/social justice from Lewis University, my Master's Degree in Clinical Counseling from Lewis University, and my Juris Doctor Degree from Chicago-Kent College of Law. 

 

I specialize in children, teens, families, and adults experiencing life adjustments, codependency, teen pregnancy and motherhood, parenting issues, parental alienation, narcissistic personality, reunification therapy, divorce, infidelity, domestic violence, depression, anxiety, and ADHD.   

 

My therapeutic approach is collaborative, and grounded on the premise that we are not defined by our successes, circumstances, or shortcomings, but rather by the choices we make as a result.  Every day is an opportunity to change our lives in some way - to live a little different, to understand a little deeper, to grow a little stronger, and to push ourselves a little harder.  Whether you're in a good place looking to maintain, or in a dark place looking for a way out, you don’t have to do it alone.

In addition to being a therapist, I am a practicing divorce attorney, Guardian ad Litem, and owner of Borsellino Law & Mediation, LLC.

I enjoy working with children, adolescents and young adults as they work through anxiety, depression, life transitions, substance use, self esteem, relational issues and the everyday challenges. 

 

My therapeutic approach is building a strong collaborative relationship to support and guide you while you work through your life journey. While working with you to develop creative interventions that fit your needs whether that be through Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Relaxation and Stress reduction, or working on creating a variety of skills to apply them to your everyday life. I believe what you put into things is what you’ll get out so the choice is always yours.
