Kris Fasshauer, LCPC


Kris is a clinical therapist seeing clients in Inverness and via Telehealth.

Kris is a licensed professional counselor who graduated from Roosevelt University with her Master’s in Clinical Professional Psychology. After graduation, she began working in the Adult Crisis Program with Community Counseling Centers of Chicago. There she found her love for quickly assessing situations and helping individuals find simple and immediate changes to help better their lives. She began working with children in the SASS department and found herself building rapport easily with children and adolescents, as well as parents. She found a passion in helping people of all ages climb out of their deepest, hardest moments.

In more recent years, Kris has been working with individuals in an outpatient community mental health setting where she is able to use her skills in Person-Centered Therapy as well as tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness techniques to help people struggling with mental health crisis, trauma, depression, and anxiety. She helped to launch the Living Room program in Franklin Park, which assists people in mental health crisis, creating a place for individuals to relax and de-stress while having the opportunity to speak with peer supports in order to help relieve stressors and avoid an unnecessary trip to the hospital.

Kris embraces empathy and compassion to help people from all walks of life discover their best selves. She deeply believes in the potential of others and works hard to help them believe in it as well. Kris has experience in LGBTQ+, anxiety, depression, crisis de-escalation, parenting, aging and life transitions, and bipolar disorder. In her free time, Kris enjoys nature and photography, the holistic healing arts, and spending time with her sons and her fur-baby, Booger the dog.
