Meet Michelle Kos, Illinois Licensed Therapist

Michelle Kos is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and with over 15 years of experience helping others. She graduated from The Adler School of Professional Psychology Chicago. Michelle has a great deal of experience working with clients going through a wide range of mental health concerns, including depression, anxiety, hopelessness, anger, stress, and dysfunctional eating.


Michelle’s goal as a therapist is to create a safe place for her clients to discuss feelings openly and without judgment, in order to begin progress toward desired goals. Her approach to counseling is eclectic, focusing on the needs of her clients. A style she often finds very effective is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), focusing on how thoughts and behaviors interact.


“I focus with clients on making small actionable steps toward progress. When life hands us challenges, it can be overwhelming. I meet my clients where they are and work together to progress at their pace. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you to get you through whatever challenges life throws your way.”
