Hello! My name is Dr. Eric Peebles and I would love to tell you a bit about myself. I am presently certified as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the States of Illinois and New Jersey and as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC). I completed my Master’s Degree in Public Administration (MPA) from Wright State University and went on to earn my Master’s Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling (M.Ed.) and Doctor in Philosophy degree (Ph.D.) focused on Rehabilitation Counseling and Special Education from Auburn University in Alabama.
I offer an authentic and unique approach to individual, family and couples counseling. I have worked with individuals across the lifespan with a specialization on persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities as well as young adults dealing with anxiety, depression, and adjustment difficulties from life transitions. With experience as a postsecondary educator, I have a unique understanding of the challenges faced during emerging adulthood. I founded Abilities Unlimited, LLC and serve as its President and Chief Executive Officer. This unique company focuses on acceptance of chronic illness and disability and developing strategies of adaptation. I have served as a telehealth counselor with the TalkSpace Network, LLC and have worked with a wide array of clients including adolescents, adults, families and couples. I have extensive experience treating anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Chronic Disease and Illness, Grief and Loss, Relationship Problems, Addiction, Identity Issues, and LGBTQ+ Issues. I provide teletherapy services for Generations and Home Psych Services using secure video teleconferencing technology for the comfort, convenience, added privacy and safety of my clients.
I happily reside in Alabama and serve clients living in Illinois and New Jersey. I enjoy spending time with my family and serving as a voice and advocate for those who might be marginalized or misunderstood due to the stigma attached to the label of “disabled.”
