Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Certified Family Life Educator

115 N. First Street, DeKalb, Illinois

Addiction is more than a behavioral problem. Dysfunctional brain circuitry changes are associated with the disease of addiction, impacting all realms of life: physical, psychological, emotional, and social. In addition to medical care, counseling is critical for recovery, relapse prevention, and re-creation of personal balance. Counseling will assist in addressing the psychological and social factors associated with relapse. Recovery and balance must integrate effectively adapting to typical life stress, environmental or situational triggers, and social networks. Counseling can help with other problems that contribute to addiction such as family, work, depression, or grief.

Addiction Counselor

Rebecca Esser, MA, NBCC, LPC.

Clinical Therapist

501 6th Ave. Suite 8, Rochelle, Illinois

Do the chains of addiction leave you feeling lonely and depressed? If so - there's a reason - and there's hope. Addiction is a disease in the brain, and it can happen to anyone. I work with clients to understand and change the disease of addiction. Clients will learn to identify their underlying issues, emotions, and triggers through harm reduction and motivational counseling. You'll develop new coping skills , learn the art of mindfulness and develop alternative ways of handling their thoughts, feelings and emotions, without slipping back into addiction.
