About

Rabije Hajdini, MA, LPC, NCC

Education: Adler University

 

Sometimes life can leave you feeling hopeless and as if you have nowhere to turn. During these moments in life, I believe we learn the most about ourselves. I trust through the pain we learn our truth, and come to better understand who we are and what we want out of life. Through therapy we can shed light on your truth, and discover what stands in the way of you reaching your fullest potential. I believe the first step in this journey is a safe and brave space, to explore these thoughts without judgement.  

 

I use an integrative approach to therapy, that primarily consists of cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness and meditation. While those are the primary theoretical orientations, I use a variety of techniques to meet your individual needs and goals. My approach to therapy is one that values transparency and communication. I encourage regular feedback and educate you about the process along the way. I feel that it is important to promote collaboration and empower you through your journey in therapy.

 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Illinois. I received a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Adler University in Chicago. My clinical experience  involves working with children, adolescents, and adults in a therapeutic school setting. I have experience in conducting individual, group, and family therapy.

 

Through my experience I have had the opportunity to work with children, adolescents, and young adults who are experiencing emotional and behavioral disorders that impact their achievement in the general academic setting. I have worked closely with families to help their children succeed, develop coping skills, adapt in their academic settings, and develop healthy family dynamics. I learned the importance of healthy family dynamics and how this can foster growth and healing within the family system. My experience has allowed me the opportunity to work with individuals from a variety of different backgrounds and who experience many different challenges.

 

Taking the first step on this journey towards healing and recovery may be difficult. Just remember, you are where you are supposed to be. All your experiences have led you to this place, and you can find meaning and purpose to it.
