About us


Kris Rinkenberger MA, NBCC, LCPC, CCATP, CCTP

With grace, understanding, and support, I seek to help clients understand how their past has shaped them, discover how ensnaring behaviors began (and continue) and then to restore dignity, well-being, and relationships.

My goal is to work with clients to heal from past wounds, address issues of personal faith, explore and address thoughts and emotions, and move forward to a hopeful and fulfilled future. And, of course, to offer a little humor along the way.

Allison L. Schieferle Uhlenbrock, MA, NCC, LCPC, CCATP-CA

My joy as a counselor comes from helping clients recognize what they want, and supporting them as they pursue the path that is right for them. My intention is to provide evidence-based interventions and partner with my clients.

I have experience working with individuals who have chronic and life-limiting diagnoses, and believe strongly in the companioning model of processing grief. I use play, art, and writing to help children and teenagers process their experiences and feelings. I am also trained in supporting survivors of sexual assault, and have experience with LGBTQ issues.

Certificates in treating anxiety in both adults and children, and credentialed in other modalities that aid in emotional regulation across various life spans.


Roberta Pool MA, LCPC, PMH-C

My goal as a counselor is to build a partnership with my clients to create a safe space to process through their hardships and struggles. My intention is to help clients find a path they are comfortable with and feel empowered moving forward with their lives.

Graduating from University of Illinois Springfield with my Master’s Degree in Human Development Counseling, I have roughly 10 years of clinical experience. I am certified in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. With this specialized training, I focus on infertility, all stages of pregnancy, postpartum anxiety and depression, as well as pregnancy and infant loss.

I am experienced in a variety of settings, including communities, schools, and the primary care setting. I have worked side by side with clients to navigate anxiety, depression, ADHD management techniques, creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, as well as grief and loss. Working with clients of all ages and families, I utilize many different evidence based techniques, including play and sand tray therapies for children and adolescents, writing and journaling techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as motivational interviewing. I am trained in EMDR and am trauma informed.


Charlotte Uteg Haning, MA, LCPC

I am passionate about helping children, adolescents, adults, and families become the healthiest and happiest versions of themselves. I focus on fostering strong, trusting relationships by providing a therapeutic space that is safe, supportive, and free from judgement. I believe in working collaboratively with individuals and families in order to help create a path for realistic and lasting change.

My approach to treatment varies based on the unique needs of the individuals and families I work with. I practice from a strength-based perspective and meet clients where they are with understanding and empathy. I enjoy engaging children through play, movement, and creative activities.

I have experience working with a range of issues and disorders including attachment difficulties, behavioral challenges, ADHD, anxiety, depression, autism spectrum disorder, trauma, and general life stress. I welcome and support those that identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community. I often incorporate social/communication skill development, psychoeducation, and parent coaching into my work with families. I am in the process of becoming Level I and II certified in EMDR.

I received a Master of Arts from Bradley University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Illinois. Prior to working in private practice, I provided community-based counseling services with children and adults involved in the child welfare system. I have also worked with children and families coping with a range of emotional and physical disabilities. Additionally, I supervised a team of clinicians working with families in the community. Personally, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, trying new recipes, and playing tennis when the weather allows.

Tara Wellenreiter, MA, LCPC 

I love working with children, families, and adults to provide a supportive and safe environment where problems can be explored and healing can be achieved. I use relationship-based intervention to meet clients where they are and partner together to explore barriers and create solutions to life’s challenges. I also use an attachment-based, trauma-informed lens to look at challenges in the context of a client’s life, relationships, and family of origin.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Illinois. I have experience working in community, school, and private practice settings. My clinical work has focused on trauma and attachment, especially of infancy and early childhood. I have experience working with individuals across the lifespan who are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, parenting issues, ADHD, postpartum issues, mood disorders, and attachment disorders.

I am a nature lover, mother of two, musician, and reading enthusiast. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, traveling, or snuggled up with a good book.
