My name is Sherri S. Wick, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), Owner of Holistically Divine Counseling. My beliefs, values and understanding is that all humans are made whole because we were created in God’s own image.
I am passionate about creating a safe, supportive and transformative space for people to develop techniques to assist them with navigating in healthy ways through this journey called life. I have a unique ability to build rapport with all people and have a niche for working with emerging adults, adults and older adults. I love working with all women and have a special place in my heart for women of color. My daily mission is to bring light to others. Faith is at the core of my essence! It provides us with a stable foundation and gives us life, purpose and meaning.
My counseling style is to utilize the best techniques that will work for each individual. I utilize many approaches including: client-centered, existential, strengths-based, solution-focused, multicultural, career counseling and trauma informed. My style is more integrative and focused on what works best for each individual’s need. I received my Master’s from Benedictine University with a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology. Along with my LCPC, I am certified as a Myers Brigg Type Indicator (MBTI) practitioner.
I wholeheartedly believe that we are called to be a light for others, but to do that we have to establish a healthy way of thinking, being and living. I look forward to working with you!
My name is Kevin Angulo, Mental Health Professional at Holistically Divine Counseling. I wholeheartedly believe that all humans have an innate value. The beliefs I hold about humans are precisely what have led me to pursue a career as a mental health professional. The intrinsic value we all possess can sometimes be lost or forgotten. Adversity and pain not only rob individuals of their self-worth, but also keeps them from becoming the best version of themselves. It is my job to provide the space and support others may need to rediscover their inherent value and overcome adversity. Trauma, addiction, hardship and other multilayered mental health issues do not define a person’s worth or what they can achieve. It is my mission and passion to remind my fellow humans of this and support them as they navigate their unique struggles. In order to do this effectively, I believe in a holistic approach to counseling that treats the mind, body and spirit.
I am a bilingual counselor fluent in Spanish and my approach to counseling is eclectic in nature. I believe in a non-directive approach to counseling, in which self-reflection is facilitated and clients can explore, discover, understand and ultimately overcome their struggles. I draw from various approaches including person-centered, narrative, gestalt and cognitive behavioral therapy. I strive to tailor my approach specifically to each client in order to better serve them and their particular needs.
I believe that everything we are not, makes us everything that we are. We can find strength in what we perceive as weakness and learn to take pride in that which makes us who we are. I hope to support you in your journey in finding the strengths and abilities you never knew you had. I look forward to working with you!
My name is Michelle C. Owusu, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), therapist at Holistically Divine Counseling. I believe that all humans have the right to be seen, heard and
understood. As human beings, we each hold value and deserve a safe space to feel supported and validated in our times of need. I value building trusting relationships based on empathy
and acceptance by treating all people with dignity, respect, and kindness. Listening with compassion, without judgement and while prioritizing the needs of my clients is my number one
I provide therapy based on the needs of my clients to allow self-exploration. Through self-exploration, we work towards creating an optimal level of functioning. The techniques I utilize include cognitive behavioral, client-centered, solution-focused, multicultural, and trauma informed. I am an LGBTQ+ ally and enjoy working with individuals and couples of various ages, races, cultures, and presenting concerns including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, anger management, grief/loss, and life transitions.
I hold a Masters degree in Community Counseling from Argosy University and I have been fully licensed as an LCPC in Illinois for 12 years. I am passionate about helping others and believe that providing a safe space is a priority in being able to assist people in navigating through life. I know that making the decision to seek out therapy can be difficult, and I admire your courage in doing so. I am excited about the possibility of working with you!

My name is Carmen Martinez, Bilingual Counselor Intern at Holistically Divine Counseling pursuing a master’s in clinical psychology at Benedictine University. I deeply believe all humans have a purpose, a God-given talent, ability, desire, and light within them to be the best version of themselves and the natural will to live their best lives possible throughout their journey.
Sometimes, that light within can become dim and distant due to life’s struggles, challenges, and adversities. It is my honor to provide a safe and welcoming space for you to share your life experiences and together find a way back to your light with acceptance, peace, and integrity.
My responsibility is to provide guidance to you through your path of life that will aid in supporting a clear way through adversity. My focus is particularly on women of diverse backgrounds and my therapeutic style includes person-centered, narrative, solution-focused and multicultural therapy methods. I wholeheartedly believe we are not what happens to us but what we choose to become and overcome. I look forward to working with you.

My name is Arielle Miree, Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), therapist at Holistically Divine Counseling. I believe in creating a safe, non-judgmental space where clients feel free to let their true selves be seen. We all innately crave love, connection, and healthy relationships. We were not created to do life alone. I view each person as a holistic being, considering your mental, physical, relational, emotional, and spiritual health as we journey together towards healing, growth, and a meaningful life.
I work with adults and teens. I am passionate about helping people grow, heal, and live a purposeful life. Further, I understand the difficult dynamic that creatives, artists, athletes, actors/actresses experience as they are under pressure to share their talents and gifts with the world. I strive to come alongside you and help you maintain your holistic health, identity, & values while you thrive in a demanding lifestyle.
My theoretical approach is eclectic. I believe in first listening to the client thoroughly before assuming what approach would work best. Some research-based techniques I use include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), existential therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and art therapy. I believe expressive forms of treatment such as creative writing, music therapy and art therapy can be beneficial for some clients.
I hold a master's degree in both Mental Health Counseling and Theological Studies from Trinity International University. Also, I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer. I strongly believe that we show up as our best selves when we invest in our holistic health. I look forward to partnering with you in your journey!

My name is Ariel Preston, Counselor Intern at Holistically Divine Counseling pursuing a master’s in Mental Health Counseling from DePaul University. I have always believed that humans are like house plants in the sense that we need water, sunlight and rest to aid in our survival. Unlike house plants, humans have emotions that can make our lives complicated, life altering and astonishingly beautiful. As a Counseling Intern it is my privilege to provide a non-judgmental and empathetic space where people can navigate their emotions and bloom into their most authentic, self-compassionate and fulfilled selves.
My therapeutic style integrates multiple schools of counseling including person-centered, solution focused, multicultural, systems theory and feminist theory. I have ten years of experience working with young and emerging adults, but I also strive to work with the LGBTQIA community, women of color, and underrepresented communities. No matter what one goes through, everyone deserves to be seen and supported.
I graduated from Dominican University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Health Science. I have been at DePaul University since 2016 and have been advising undergraduate Business students since 2018. Counseling can help humans see their strengths that are hidden deep within, develop healthy coping strategies for life’s unexpected challenges, and offer unconditional positive regard and acceptance. I am looking forward to meeting you and providing the sunshine to help grow.
“You are your best thing”
You are loved and more important than you realize.
