Carmisha Foster, MA, LPC

Carmisha Foster is passionate about empowering clients in helping themselves. A dedicated and compassionate counselor, Carmisha works with clients through their daily life challenges, traumatic experiences and major life events. She employs powerful, cutting edge research to help clients facilitate change, helping you to build your emotional skills and increase resources to overcome challenges and obstacles prolifically.

Carmisha takes a holistic approach to therapy, providing a non-judgmental and compassionate atmosphere in which clients feel safe to explore and work through their thoughts, feelings, conflicts (internal/external) and beliefs. She feels it is important for clients to explore more than just their presenting problem but the factors that may contribute to the presenting problem. These factors may include their career, personal life, health, family constellation and/or community.

In helping clients actualize their personal goals, Carmisha uses a variety of evidenced based counseling theories and treatment modalities because she values diversity and knows therapy is not a “one size fits all” service.

Her specialties include:

  • Anger Management
  • Career Coaching
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Couples & Family Therapy
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Depression
  • Eating problems
  • Grief Counseling
  • Marriage Counseling
  • Sexual Assault
  • Stress & Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Work / School Balance

Carmisha is a board certified Clinical Counselor. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and her Master’s Degree in Counseling and Organizational Psychology from Adler School of Professional Psychology. Carmisha is only available in Chicago. 

In addition to her work as a therapist, Carmisha has over 5 years of experience as a human resource professional where she mediated conflicts, counseled and advised employees daily on challenges and issues they experienced in the workforce, as well as managing difficult relationships and conversations.
