Veronica Medina
Self Pay Rate: $149

Veronica Medina, Ph.D., LCPC, LMHC

Philosophy of Care

Veronica Medina, PhD, is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), and an Organizational Psychologist with 24 years of experience in the mental health field. Dr. Medina completed her master's degree in Counseling at Valparaiso University and her doctorate in Organization Psychology (PhD) at Walden University. She is an adjunct professor with a health studies department where she teaches holistic medicine, human sexuality, stress management, and statistics. Dr. Medina recently completed trauma training with the Boston Trauma Center, under the direction of Bessel van der Kolk, a leader in trauma research.

Dr. Medina began her counseling career in 1995. Her first job was with the Aliveness Project in Gary, Indiana, which serviced the LGBTQ community and provided outreach/prevention. Counselor Medina found additional opportunities in Illinois servicing the Spanish-speaking communities with Chicago Catholic Charities. Then she started to feel the symptoms of secondary trauma, which included compassion fatigue and doubt in her abilities. Dr. Medina decided to return to graduate school to learn more about burnout, stress, anxiety, and the mind-body connection. Eventually, she understood how this affected the individual and the individual in the organization.

Dr. Medina agrees with Freud’s belief that everyone should be able to Love and Work. We should love our work and understand love. If we do not have any problems with Love and Work, we will thrive. When a person experiences an imbalance with Love or Work, they become stressed. As time goes by, a stressed person will develop symptoms of anxiety and depression. Research has shown us that untreated stress accumulates in the body and can cause physical illnesses. Talk therapy or cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), has been known to help in the reduction of stress.
