About Lessi Smebakken

I am in private practice in Arlington Hts., Il. and am dedicated to assisting people "find their own voice". Trauma, childhood abuse or neglect and many past and present situations continue to rob an individual of who they truly are and hope to become. I see myself as a change agent, helping people sort out their own puzzles in order to live a more full and meaningful life. While using a variety of modalities, including EMDR and cognitive therapy,  I have found that Somatic Experiencing enhances the process of therapy. Somatic Experiencing has been the most satisfying and transforming approach since it deals directly with the body and the nervous system, enabling it (the nervous system) to self regulate.  Through this process, the brain is better able to identify, work through and solve life's problems.
