Maribeth Germino, LCPC
Maribeth welcomes her clients with warmth and compassion at any stage of their healing journey. Whether you’re a newcomer or a seasoned therapy goer, she understands that processing past experiences and navigating the uncertainty of the future takes courage. She honors her clients’ experiences by creating a space where one can foster curiosity about these fears and uncertainties, gain insight about themselves, and feel empowered to make positive changes. By incorporating self-compassion, shame resilience, and value exploration, Maribeth becomes a partner for clients who want to break cycles and make changes towards a fulfilling and authentic life.
Maribeth works with adolescents, young adults, and adults with issues related to trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions, and identity development. She is fluent in Tagalog and is passionate about working with immigrants, immigrant families and the Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) community. She uses a variety of therapeutic modalities, including Internal Family Systems, CBT, DBT, and ACT to help clients process their emotions and develop skills for their personal growth journey.
Maribeth earned her advanced graduate degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Loyola University Chicago. She also earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology and Social Welfare and Justice from Marquette University. She has experience working in community mental health and residential facilities supporting adolescents, adults, and families navigating a variety of mental health concerns.
When she’s not sitting in the therapist chair, Maribeth enjoys sitting on her couch while crafting, playing board games, and collecting pens and stationery supplies. You can also find her spending time with her family and their young rescue pup.
