Aspire Counseling

Patti J. Reid

I earned a Masters of Science Degree in Counseling/Human Services at National-Louis University.  I now practice as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and Nationally Certified Counselor.  I have also participated in the LGBT post-graduate certificate program.

Prior to becoming a clinical professional counselor and psychotherapist,  I earned a degree in teaching and also worked in a trade for several years. Ten years ago I acknowledged the call to become a counselor which has been persistent for most of my adult life.

I have lived in the Wauconda area since 1991, loving the abundance of water, woods and fresh air.  I love to travel, spend time gardening, go boating and am an avid reader of anything related to my field.

I have always loved relational work and the connection between mind, body and spirit. Today, I am grateful I am able to do this work on a daily basis.
