Cristin McAuley is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor specializing in individual adult therapy.  She holds a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Northwestern University and a Bachelor’s degree in the Program of Liberal Studies from the University of Notre Dame.  Her clinical experience at The Family Institute at Northwestern University and her studies in the “Great Books” program at Notre Dame have led her to adopt a multifaceted and holistic approach to mental health care.  Some of her clinical interests include: trauma, depression, stress management, conflict, sexual abuse, anxiety, grief and loss, major life transitions such as divorce or job loss, and eating disorders and body-image issues.

“I believe that everyone can benefit from mental health therapy.  At some point in our lives, circumstances may become so overwhelming that we will find ourselves in pain that may not only affect our well-being, but also our relationships with those most important to us.  Utilizing talk therapy, as well as some cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral techniques, I believe wellness and symptom improvement can be attained by unearthing the root causes of the challenges we face.  I work to empower my clients by teaching them how to use this gift of a deeper level of understanding to effect positive change in their lives today and better prepare themselves for difficulties that may arise in the future.”

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.” –David Richo
