Who Am I?

My name is June Martin Naureckas. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a degree in Creative Arts Therapy Counseling. I am a white, non-binary lesbian who uses they/them pronouns.

I love working with:

LGBTQ+ adolescents and emerging adults, couples trauma survivors of all ages, and people of all ages living with chronic and progressive illnesses.

Some of my favorite approaches include:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Gottman Method Couples’ Counseling, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy-Informed Art Therapy.

In other words, I like to learn about different empirically supported counseling models and select specific methods or tools based on what works for each client!


I have experience working with patients seeking therapeutic care and support for trauma, chronic illness, and gender dysphoria. I want to collaborate with clients to find a definition of a happy, functional life that works with them.

I believe…

I believe that the universe is very big and humans are very small, so we might as well be kind to each other. I believe that most people are fundamentally trying their best with the resources they currently have available to them. I practice Reform Judaism and believe in the principle of Tikkun Olam or Repairing the World: “It is not on you to finish the work of repair, but neither are you free to desist from it.”

What it’s like in a session with me

The shape of a session with me will depend on the goals we set together. We might use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and narrative storytelling structures to process tough past or ongoing experiences. We might practice skills for withstanding overwhelming feelings of distress. We might draw or paint together in silence to explore ideas you aren’t yet ready to put into words. In all cases, I want our time together to be useful and restorative to you, even if it is sometimes hard or scary.

More about me

I love to rock climb, play D&D and board games with my friends, and argue with my girlfriend about the color of Lake Michigan. My favorite place in the world is the Shedd Aquarium’s sturgeon touch tank. My second favorite place in the world is coloring on the floor with my nephew and nieces. I became a counselor because I love speaking frankly with other human beings about true and difficult things. I am excited to meet you and begin our work together!
