Amy Jeffers, Masters Intern

As I enter into the final stretch of my graduate training program, I am honored to serve the Inner Courage Counseling community as an intern. I currently attend Lewis University in Romeoville, IL, where I am working towards earning a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Although much of my training has been geared towards counseling children and adolescents, I enjoy working with clients of all ages and provide both individual and group counseling. I strive to combine clinical knowledge and life experience in my counseling approach, often drawing from the unique perspective I have gained in my work as a preschool and early childhood educator and my extensive volunteer experience serving children, adolescents, and families in the local community. My areas of clinical interest include: anxiety, depression, behavioral modification, emotional regulation, social skills training, self-confidence/self-compassion, LGBTQ+/identity issues, and parenting.

I believe that regardless of one’s age or situation, every human has the underlying desire to feel heard and understood. My goal is to create a safe and nonjudgmental space for clients to explore, grow, heal, and learn new strategies to tackle challenges or improve their quality of life. I aim to develop supportive working relationships with clients rooted in collaboration and empathic understanding, and because no two people are alike, I tailor my therapeutic approach to the unique needs of each client. I most commonly use Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based, expressive/creative, and play-based approaches in my clinical work and customize counseling activities with awareness of each client’s specific abilities, strengths, and goals.

Making the decision to begin counseling can be both intimidating and overwhelming, but please know I am here to walk alongside you throughout the process. Counseling can be a truly transformative experience and I look forward to joining you or your loved one on this journey.
