Hello. My name is Noreen Kopaczewski MSW. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW #16864) and have been working with children, adolescents, and their families for the past 30 years. I have experience working with kids who are struggling with depression, behavioral issues, and/or traumatic events. I engage them by meeting them “where they are at”, in order to develop trust and a nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship. I utilize Play Therapy to help them express their feelings and work through their struggles. I also include caregivers in therapy to better understand their child’s behaviors and explore how past experiences are influencing them now. Together we can work on changing unwanted behaviors and establish new patterns for a more balanced and meaningful life. I look forward to working with you!

Hello! I am Natalia Arellano, Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW #27226). My focus as a therapist is to guide you in remembering your worthiness and honoring who you are in order to create a life filled with more joy and meaning. Depression, anxiety, low self esteem and many other life challenges tend to make us forget how amazing and extraordinary we truly are. Our constant and discouraging thoughts create false belief systems that keep us stuck, numb and unfulfilled. I use a variety of therapy modalities to empower you to take action and create the vibrant life you deserve. Radical self acceptance, self love and self compassion are vital in order for you to thrive. This is the necessary work that takes effort, but you are so worth it. I value faith and spirituality which can be integrated into therapy according to the desires of the client. I look forward to working with you as you begin the journey of empowered transformation!

Areas of Focus and Specialties:
Ages: 12 and up: adolescents, individuals, groups, couples
I have experience working with adolescents, young adults, families, and new mothers struggling with anxiety, depression, and trauma. I have spent extensive time with families to overcome obstacles and to develop healthy relationships between one another. When working with adolescents, I look for opportunities to learn about their experiences. I believe the highest benefit of therapy is gained once I am able to meet them where they are. I enjoy treating adults through individual therapy to help navigate life transitions and life stressors. In the therapeutic relationship, you will gain tools to further your strengths and gain perspective of obstacles and how to best overcome them. I use an approach that is understanding, compassionate, and without judgement, to guide your journey to healing.
I graduated from Alliant International University with an MA degree in Couples and Family Therapy. My bachelor’s degree is in Child Development and Family Studies. I have worked in a multitude of settings, including outpatient, in-home treatment, and school setting. I am committed to supporting individuals in meeting their higher potential while overcoming barriers to live their best lives.
