Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
Hello! It is a pleasure to meet you and to be able to introduce myself. My name is Farrah Pece (she / her / hers). I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) in the State of Illinois. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A.) in Psychology from Aurora University and my Master of Science degree (M.S.) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from National-Louis University.
I have enjoyed working in a variety of settings in the mental health field focused on serving the needs of adults, adolescents and older children. My professional background includes working as a inpatient counselor at a behavioral health hospital, a crisis worker responding to individuals in mental health crisis within the community, domestic violence and sexual assault case manager, and as an outpatient therapist working in a non-profit setting. My experience has allowed me to treat individuals with a variety of presenting issues including depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, trauma-informed care including treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from domestic abuse, accidents, assaults, and natural disasters, and difficulties with life adjustments.
I use a strength-based approach and believe that every individual has a set of unique strengths and abilities that can help them through life’s difficulties. I believe strengths are just as important to discuss in therapy as are the so-called “presenting issues” which brought you into therapy in the first place. I have a great appreciation for other people and my treatment is viewed through a multicultural perspective which allows me to have awareness and sensitivity to my clients’ diverse backgrounds and experiences. I use the following evidence-based approaches to therapy: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT).
I reside in the suburbs of Chicago with my fiance and two dogs. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, and learning new things. My newest hobby is learning Spanish which I can understand well, but am learning to speak fluently. I look forward to meeting you and helping you find your strengths and overcome life’s difficulties!
