Peggy Tomchek, MS, LPC
I believe that one of the most important things that helps us in life is connection. Connection fuels authenticity in our relationships and allows us to be who we really are with other people. Therapy is a place for all of us to explore our connections, whether it be with ourselves, our partners, our children, our families or our friends. In order to be our best selves, we need meaningful connections with others who can meet us where we are. I will meet you where you are in a space where there is freedom to explore whatever life is throwing your way. You are the expert of your life. I am prepared to walk your path with you and to help identify places where you can make positive change that will help you achieve your goals.
I became a therapist because I wanted to walk alongside others on their journey. I am an unbiased, non-judgmental support and utilize my own humanity, knowledge of psychological systems and approaches to help you make change. I especially want to help those who feel marginalized and unimportant in their lives and in the world. I work with many mental health issues including depression, anxiety, ADHD, transition, parenting, adolescent and teen issues, living with long term illness, stress management, and life issues. I practice from a family systems perspective, which also focuses on connection and relationships.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who works with all people from adolescence through late adulthood of all genders, sexual orientations, races and cultures. I earned my Master of Science in Clinical Psychology from Benedictine University. I consider it a privilege to work in this field, and find the therapeutic relationship between a therapist and client to be very powerful and life-changing.
