About Tamika Manson, LPC

I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at Northern Illinois University and a Master of Arts degree in Professional Counseling at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology/Argosy University. I have many years of counseling experience from working at community agencies and community colleges. I have worked with ages ranged from very young children to older adults. My work with youth included young children who have experienced trauma or abuse. I have worked with teens whom have experienced a myriad of issues including depression, suicidal ideation, abuse and self-harming behaviors. With older adults, I have assisted those who were struggling with addiction, suffering from anxiety, and/or experiencing life changes such as divorce and many other issues.

My approach to therapeutic treatment is to engage clients with care, compassion and understanding. I want clients to feel that I am on their side collaborating with them working towards the best possible outcome of the situation they are seeking to address. I utilize cognitive behavioral treatment or solution- focused therapy with a person-centered approach that emphasizes empathy and unconditional positive regard. I believe that every person desires to feel heard and understood. I want to be there for them in their time of need.

My spare time is generally spent with my husband, daughter, extended family and friends. I enjoy taking long walks on sunny days, strengthening my green thumb in my garden, and sneaking in a nap every now and then.
