Ms. Agnes Krzeminska, LCPC, NCC, CCMHC, RYT Agnes has a Masters of Arts (MA) degree in clinical mental health counseling from Northwestern University, is a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC), a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC), and trained in India to become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT).
Through authentic and transparent collaboration between client and counselor, Agnes empowers the individual and promotes mental wellness through empathy and evidence-based practices. She practices DBT-informed therapy and psychodynamic therapy using humanistic and trauma-informed lenses to tie her practice together. In addition, Agnes uses mindfulness, yoga, nature, and art therapy to help the individual heal and discover more about themselves. She guides the individual to uncover and uproot, sometimes unconscious, issues stemming from past experiences and conditioning that inform limiting beliefs and thought patterns that are causing dysfunction or discomfort in their life.
Agnes strives to create a safe and supportive space for the individual to process and learn about themselves in her cozy office in Woodstock. She sees families, parents, and individuals for outpatient psychotherapy. Agnes primarily works with teenagers and young adults, supporting them through life transitions, stress, anxiety, depression, navigating neurodivergence, family conflict, identity development (including gender, sexual orientation, and cultural identity) and past/current trauma. Agnes is a BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ sensitive therapist and meets the individual where they are at, using their worldview as a guide throughout treatment.
While Agnes uses a holistic perspective in her work and treats the symptoms that cause dysfunction and disability in the individual’s life, Agnes has experience working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, adjustment disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, personality disorder characteristics, low to moderate severity autism, and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder. In addition, Agnes works with difficulties such as stress, family conflict, childhood trauma, life transitions, behavior issues, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, intrusive thoughts, executive dysfunction, emotional regulation issues, low self-esteem/self-worth, body image issues, gender dysphoria, among other issues.
Agnes currently sees patients via telehealth and in-person in our new location in Woodstock.
