Candice DuBeau is a graduate student currently obtaining her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northern Illinois University. Candice is trained to provide individual, family, and couples counseling for individuals of all ages. Candice has extensive training in providing therapy for individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, individuals experiencing a crisis, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, individuals struggling with addiction, and individuals struggling with identity concerns. Furthermore, she has continued to be educated on multicultural competencies by being immersed in the impoverished communities of Thailand and Guatemala to assist in various educational and mental health-related ways. In Candice’s undergraduate research at Northern Illinois University, she has had the opportunity to work with participants recovering from sexual assault, childhood trauma, and anxiety, where she was properly trained on how to administer a variety of assessments related to said experiences.

As a counselor, Candice personally subscribes to the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach to counseling. CBT focuses on the idea that problems come from irrational beliefs or thoughts that are acted upon. Candice uses CBT to work together with her clients to identify goals that will address the challenges clients are currently experiencing that are delaying their journey to their desired life. Candice acknowledges there is not a one size fits all style to counseling and therefore works with clients to accomplish their goals in unique and various ways that are best for each individual client. Ultimately, Candice approaches counseling sessions as a collaborative effort that aims to empower clients to achieve the life that they desire.
