Clinical Supervision in the State of Illinois with Dr. Collene Taylor, LCPC, NCC, CCTP. I provide weekly supervision for license, and license-eligible clinicians working towards obtaining their license in clinical counseling (LCPC).
Process of Supervision
I believe that supervision is a process whereby I engage a counselor-in-training in professional growth and development that will lead to therapeutic competence while safeguarding the clients of the supervisee. This growth constitutes increased knowledge, skill application, self-awareness, and self-management that will lead to a professional identity as a counselor.
According to Illinois Mental Health Counseling Association (IMHCA) you must meet the following:
Individual Supervision: $90 hr
Group Supervision: $50 hr
Anxiety looks like extreme worry or fear that something traumatic will happen again.
We help clients reduce the affects of various stressors, while enhancing peace from within.
Depression can permeate all aspects of a person’s life. No matter the circumstance, there is always a spark of hope!
Family therapy is unique, because it enables therapists to assess various problems at a systemic and interactional level.
Unexpected change can cause stress even if the change is positive. Learning how to cope and maneuver though the ambiguity of life will only benefit you.
Almost everybody can benefit from therapy or counseling at different points in their lives.
No one is immune to the strain and stress life brings. We can feel more or less stress at times, depending on a variety of factors, including the disruption of events themselves, our perceptions, learned behaviors, past traumatic events and other known and unknown factors.
Sometimes the lack of a supportive network, close friends and family brings the need to have someone to talk to about navigating daily life: new opportunities, connections, perspectives and reflections.
WithU Counseling Group serves individuals, couples and families, including adolescents and children.
Counseling For Anxiety
Is anxiety taking over your life? Does it feel like you can’t control it no matter how hard you try? Have you already tried therapy but found it ineffective?
If this sounds like you, I’m confident I can help. My practice offers the most effective forms of treatment, to get the relief from anxiety that you deserve.
When it comes to treating anxiety disorders, research shows that therapy is usually the most effective option. That’s because anxiety therapy – as opposed to anxiety medication – treats more than just symptoms to the problem.
Often, these are the symptoms of anxiety:
Therapy can help to uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears, learn how to relax, look at situations in a new, less frightening way, and develop better coping mechanisms and problem-solving skills.

Counseling For Depression
Are you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self?
Do these thoughts often enter your mind?
If you have had any variation of these thoughts and don’t feel like your usual self, chances are you may be suffering from depression.
I want you to know that you are not alone and there are people who can help. Many of my clients find relief in realizing that their struggle does not own them and that there are many options available to once again have hope for their lives.
I understand the social stigmas that come with label of being depressed, and thus aim to help clients sort out their environmental, biological and circumstantial factors while offering support and care through a very dark time in their lives.
If you are hoping to finally lighten this load and feel like yourself again, contact me today.
Anyone seeking healthier, closer family relationships can benefit from family therapy.
Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us.
Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:
Family therapy is necessary to address family issues and heal a family’s wounds. If any of the above scenarios resonate with your family, consider seeking family therapy. Family therapy can be beneficial on many different levels.
Some positive family therapy outcomes are:
Studies show that family therapy is particularly important for families with members who struggle with substance abuse, eating disorders and other behavioral issues. When the whole family grows, each member is better off.
