Hello , my name is Lindabeth Rivera. I am a National Certified (NCC) and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC). I received my Masters Degree in Clinical Mental health from National Louis University in Chicago, IL. I am currently licensed in Illinois and have been working in the field since 2015.
I specialize in working with children, teens, and adults presenting with trauma, self-esteem and body image, substance abuse, anxiety, depression, self- harm and sexual assault. I also has experience working with family and couples. I have experience working in private practice and I am currently working in a therapeutic day school.
I provide a welcoming non-judgmental environment to explore the many challenges in life. Developing strategic goals to help regain control. Utilizing relaxation techniques, art techniques, Play therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and creative activities to help reflect on experiences.
It takes great courage to begin a search for a therapist and I am so glad you are here. The first step is always the hardest, but sometimes the smallest step in the right direction can be the biggest step of your life. Tip Toe if you must, but take the step and begin the healing process today. My goal is to guide and support you through your journey in life. I will provide you with feedback, help you reflect , set short and long term goals, assist with self-esteem, body image, relationship issues, friendship obstacles and encourage your growth with providing you with appropriate tools that are unique to you. I am excited and looking forward to working with you soon.

Linda is a fantastic counselor - well versed in multiple modalities of care, open and down to earth. She makes even the hardest therapeutic session an opportunity to grow and evolve.
Lindabeth is an amazing therapist. Her easy-going nature comes through even in her text messages. She is gifted and we are beyond happy we were matched with her.
She’s definitely a great therapist. Opens my mind to things I didn’t even think of or see in the way she presents to me. Cannot wait to continue my sessions with her.
