Counseling with Erin Leyba

I am a warm, positive, relationship-oriented counselor in Oak Brook, IL who specializes in seeing new and expecting parents. Having a compassionate, nonjudgmental space to reflect and talk things out can lighten your load, help you heal, and energize you about what’s next. I believe that, at times, everyone can benefit from the powerful space to reflect that counseling provides. I will help you take time for yourself to heal from a loss, process feelings, address patterns, or move from a “stuck” place into one of more clarity, peace, or happiness.
I am relaxed and direct, and enjoy building strong, genuine relationships. I am dedicated to helping you feel supported, reinstilling hope, seeing things in fresh ways, and discussing strategies that may be helpful. Together, we will identify positive ways for you to deal with your unique life stressors and enjoy the here and now.
I provide focused support for grief/loss, anxiety, relationships, life transitions, parenting, and marriage counseling. A therapist for 20 years, I integrate solution-focused, Internal Family Systems, CBT, mindfulness approaches. I return calls within 24 hours. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call me at 773-758-4321 or email me at erinleyba (at) gmail.com.
