Michael Peila, LPC, NCC

Michael became a Licensed Professional Counselor and Nationally Certified Counselor after receiving a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Roosevelt University. He believes building a positive therapeutic relationship can lead to life-changing improvements regarding one’s state of mental health.

Several years ago, Michael began working with individuals suffering from issues regarding mental health and addiction (co-occurring disorders). Although co-occurring disorders has been a main area of focus, Michael has worked with individuals suffering from a wide array of issues. He utilizes various cognitive-behavioral therapies (ACT, REBT, Mindfulness) while working from a client-centered psychodynamic platform exploring some of the more foundational issues that can often go undiscovered…awareness is key!

Along with his education and professional experience, Michael has extensive personal experience that allows for deep empathy and has helped prepare him for helping individuals from many different walks of life…promoting hope, self-awareness, acceptance, and happiness!

Michael is accepting new clients at the SchaumburgWarrenville and St. Charles locations.
