Meet the Counselor

Kris Kirilova, LCPC


As a therapist and career counselor in Arlington Heights, IL, I serve the Northwest communities of Chicago.

People seek me out for individual counseling or career counseling, including improving personal or professional relationships.

I find that work and love are fundamental parts of life, and I see my work as supporting clients to find fulfillment in their personal life and career.  As a therapist, people seek my help to manage difficult relationships, anxiety, life transitions, and perfectionism.

Within career counseling, clients typically face career transitions, new positions, workplace dissatisfaction, or need help finding their passions and direction. They desire to deepen the understanding of themselves and their unique talents.



  • Master’s Degree (MA) in Clinical Psychology, Roosevelt University

  • Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (IL)


I recognize the importance of culture and its impact. I welcome diversity in sex, age, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, gender identity, documentation status, financial means, etc.

My practice in Arlington Heights, IL reflects the diversity and international vibrancy of Chicago.

Professional Memberships: Illinois Counseling Association, IL Mental Health Counselor (IMHCA)


I offer a warm and collaborative atmosphere to help you explore options, reconnect with your inner compass, and work toward your goals.  I realize your personal and professional life often impact each other, and with some guidance, you can find courage and direction in times of transition. My style is integrative with a focus on cognitive behavioral approaches, narrative career counseling, and solution-focused therapy.
