Our Team


Brad Wahlig

LPC,  Military Veteran

My counseling style is family-centered and blends a variety of therapeutic elements. One of our goals in therapy will be self-actualization - setting & achieving personal goals that will help you realize your full potential.


As a Veteran, I have a specific interest in working with Veterans and their families. I specialize in PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and in adults with developmental disabilities.


I also work with individuals experiencing a range of symptoms: depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, substance use, grief, chronic stress, and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).


I have specific experience working with teens and also with the unique grief of a loved one who is suicidal or who has died by suicide.

When choosing a therapist it is important to consider many different perspectives. 

First and most importantly, is this someone that you will be comfortable working with? Education and experience are also factors in the decision. However, when it comes right down to it, it’s about connecting. All the great tools that a therapist may have will do no good if you do not connect with them. I have heard from many of my clients about negative experiences in the past with therapists and how they feel like nothing really happened. I believe my clients experience this differently. If I cannot assist and we don’t connect, I will use my network to ensure you connect with the right therapist.


For me, it is about the success of the client, not adding a client. I have been trained in IMAGO relationship theory and EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) and enjoy working with couples. I also enjoy working with men who are not sure about this whole counseling thing. I am also certified in Anger Management.


If you’re stuck and have lost some of the joy of living and laughing, let’s connect.

I am also dedicated to using evidence-based practice on a variety of presenting concerns you may have including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, stress-management, parenting, and many other issues.

Your story matters. And you are more than a story. People usually seek therapy when trying to make sense of a piece of their story or trying to create a new chapter.

My approach to therapy seeks to hear your story as we both learn more about who you are and what matters to you. I love to help people improve their relationships with themselves and other.


I have specialization in recovery from mental health challenges such as Depression, self-harm, Borderline Personality, Bipolar Disorder and voice hearing/psychosis. I also have experience helping adolescents and adults on the Autism Spectrum seeking their way in a neurodiverse world. Still, my focus is on people over diagnosis.


I have training in ACT, DBT, EMDR, and CBT. I use these as tools where it makes sense for a given person. If you are interested in something specific, like EMDR, we can go that route. Or, we can draw up a map together as we go.


Feel free to reach out and we can talk about your story, and what you are looking for.

Jocelyn Acoff

MA, LPC

Counseling should provide a confidential and non judgmental environment for a person to work through life challenges or simply to vent. That's my main goal when it comes to therapy, ensuring my clients are comfortable and staying judgment free.


I work with adult clients who are experiencing grief, anxiety, PTSD and/or depression. I also have years of experience working with adult clients who are dealing with symptoms of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and substance use disorders.


I value person centered therapy, motivational interviewing and narrative therapy techniques. But more than anything I value the importance of connecting with my clients, if I can't assist I am comfortable with referring.


I offer evening and weekend sessions.

Hope to hear from you soon.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I believe that no one should go through the challenges of life alone. My goal is to guide you to reach your full potential for your mental health well being.


No judgments here, just support and some new tools for your mental health toolbox.

My counseling style will change to meet the needs of the client, Mental health is individualized and no one technique will work for everyone. Person centered, CBT and Motivational Interviewing techniques are used often but not always.


Through the last 20 plus years, my primary work has been with children, adolescents and their families in the child welfare system and the communities they call home. I have had experience with in-patient hospitalization services and with inmates in the Illinois Department of Corrections system. I have worked with a variety of people in various situations in life. I have participated in several trainings related to trauma focused therapy.
