Evelyn Ramirez, LPC
Evelyn Ramirez, Therapist, Inner Courage Counseling
Evelyn earned a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lewis University in 2019. Evelyn specializes in working with adolescents and adults dealing with a variety of concerns such as anxiety, self-esteem and identity issues, interpersonal issues, depression, self-compassion, and trauma.
I believe counseling has something to offer for each and every one of us. Whether you are looking to gain insight onto your own development, build coping skills, heal from past traumas, or better understand your emotions I am grateful to be a part of your journey. I realize how difficult it can be to seek counseling, so my goal is to create a welcoming and nonjudgmental environment where clients feel comfortable to express, explore, and reflect on their thoughts, emotions, and experiences.
I enjoy being able to utilize humor, empathic understanding, and my genuine personality to build a relationship with my clients that will be the building blocks for our work together. My goal is to ensure each client sees counseling as an opportunity to heal, understand themselves better, and build from their personal strengths. Because no two people are alike, I recognize the importance of adapting my therapeutic approach to fit the needs of each client. My work with clients has included Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based, Narrative, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) techniques. Together my clients and I work on developing effective coping skills, so they can integrate them into their daily life. Additionally, I find it is essential to educate my clients on relevant mental health topics as to normalize their experiences and emphasize the importance of applying what we work on together in their everyday life.
