Kayleen Pen, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

As your therapist, I aim to provide you the support and care you need through any life transition or struggle. My international upbringing has taught me to appreciate and connect with people from all cultures, ages, and circumstances. Through my graduate education and training at Northwestern University, I developed mastery in helping clients cope with anxiety, depression, and adjustment to common or major life stressors.

People describe me as energetic and empathetic. This is often reflected in my therapeutic work, so you can expect to receive warmth, caring, and laughter within each session. I won't try to persuade you to see the world from my point of view; I strive to honor yours. In fact, I have a deep curiousity and respect for the human experience, and working with cultural difference is a passion of mine! Through a mixture of listening, thought-provoking questions, and tools, my clients have learned ways to move past their difficulties. The end result? They report feeling more secure, confident, and satisfied in their lives!
