Karen Alberti, LCPC

Children, Adolescents, Families and Adults

Karen Alberti, a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, practicing in our St. Charles office, has learned in her more than 25 years working with children, adolescents, families, and adults that once a client can identify their unique gifts or strengths, they can begin the path to constructing the life they desire.

Whether I am working with a 6-yearold girl or a 60-year-old man, it is important to identify a person’s strengths.  These strengths are the stepping stones upon which the client and I will reinforce, or rebuild, their foundation.”

Children, Adolescents and Adult Counseling

While her main approach to counseling focuses on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques, Karen has a full repertoire of skills to pull from to help clients identify their strengths and move in a positive direction. She also utilizes Play Therapy, Bibliotherapy, homework assignments, and Art Therapy techniques that work exceptionally well with many young people. Karen treats children, adolescents and adults who are coping with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, grief and loss, abuse, anger management, self-esteem issues, stress, ADHD, and self-injury.  She also treats individuals and families coping with cancer and other chronic illnesses.

In addition to her Master’s training from Northern Illinois University and her long-term service in private practice, Karen has a vast array of experience ranging from being the primary therapist to children in crisis at a residential school to teaching parent education to community mental health in hospital and academic settings.

I believe that if people are able to change the way they think about a problem or behavior, it will decrease stress and improve their quality of life.”
