AMANDA HOFBAUER,

LMFT

Amanda strives to create a safe place where clients can restore their connection to themselves and others. She utilizes a goal-oriented approach and active interventions that teach new skills, facilitate self discovery, and offer people an opportunity to be in relationship differently.

Amanda works to create a resting place for those who are carrying the heavy weight of loss, pain or trauma. Additionally, Amanda is interested in exploring the root of issues (which may reside in the past) while also providing practical tools for the present, including helping clients connect to the resources within their own bodies. Her approach enables clients to discover new possibilities for themselves and their relationships.

Amanda’s clinical specialties include working with individuals around trauma/PTSD (past abuse/neglect, dangerous childhoods, sexual assault, traumatic accidents), grief and loss, and spiritual instability. She also has experience helping couples who are experiencing (or have experienced) infertility, and those who are healing from emotional and/or sexual affairs.

Amanda received her Bachelor of Arts in Communication, with additional concentrations in Sociology, Cultural Competence, and Conflict Transformation from North Park University. She later earned her Master of Arts in Couple and Family Therapy from Adler University.

Natalie helps parents and co-parents when they are facing challenges in parenting and discipline. She assists parents with conscious parenting: finding ways to provide children with equal amounts of unconditional sensitivity and compassion, and structure and consistency. She also helps couples communicate in new ways, find intimacy, and create trusting and long-lasting bonds. 

Natalie received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with Summa Cum Laude honors from Eastern Illinois University, and earned her Master’s of Science in Child Development and Family Studies with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy from Purdue University.

KATHERINE ROSS,

AMFT

IMG_0344_Facetune_09-11-2017-21-04-34 (1).jpg

Katherine approaches therapy with compassion and warmth. Her therapeutic practice is directed towards helping individuals, couples, and families cope with trauma, anxiety, and depression. Katherine specializes in working with children and families. She believes that it is important to guide children, as well as adults, as early as possible, to understand and develop self-love. Self-love promotes development, balance and all around wellness. Simultaneously, Katherine challenges her clients to become proactive in their life and commit to healing and growth.
 
For Katherine, becoming a therapist started much earlier than her training. The qualities and passion that embody her professionally and personally are one in the same. Her desire to relieve pain and suffering from others is what drives her the most. Since she can remember, she was always the person that others would come to when the weight of the world seemed a little too heavy to carry on their shoulders alone. Katherine’s intuition has always been her strongest informant. She attunes to the energy and emotions of others and then is able to uniquely connect, empathize and find the best approach to work with clients.
 
Katherine has solid research and clinical experience in parent-child relationships and attachment. Katherine earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. She then graduated from Adler University with a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy.
