A break-up, the loss of a loved one, anxiety, or adjusting to a life transition are common issues addressed in therapy. Most people go through difficult times; therapy helps you to gain better insight into your struggles and make lasting changes. Therapy can truly change how you see yourself, how you feel, and how you experience life. I work to create a judgment free, safe environment using a strength-based, holistic approach to meet your individual needs. I have extensive training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), though this is just one of the tools in my toolbox. I believe therapy is a collaborative process that is tailored

We all have a natural resilience to heal from trauma, loss, and unexpected setbacks, however stories created about who we are can get in the way. They tell us we are not good enough, that we will fail, that we are not safe. They disconnect us from others, the world around us, and the goals we seek, they wreak havoc in our bodies. Together, we will partner to make sense of and transform these stories, allowing for growth and connection. I believe that even our adversities can be a source of strength and an opportunity to better ourselves.

I've always sought mentors to guide me through life's trials, and luckily found many along the way. Now I pass on the sum of their wisdom along with my own. Therapy, a process of healing, happens through shared presence and expanding awareness. It's a safe place where truth can be expressed and pain transformed. We typically cope with pain through distraction, intoxication or denial. Learning to be emotionally sober we can heal our relationships - with ourselves and others. "Process" addictions, loss, trauma and shame are respectfully addressed. Empowerment, clarity, healing and comfort with emotional intimacy are consequences.

I focus on assisting clients in attending to their relational concerns, which allows for them to overcome the emotional distress associated with a history of difficult and painful relationships.

Sometimes, you just feel like a fraud. Pretending to be excited for the weekend. People congratulate you at work for your achievement but never invite you to drinks or even a virtual happy hour at the end of the day. While you're not losing your mind, you're just not in the space you thought you'd be when coming to live in this country. I know you are going to hate to hear this but you are not alone. Transitions are hard to maneuver at times and can be much longer than a few months to get through. And that's ok.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviors to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Chicago or for a Chicago ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Chicago. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Chicago

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Chicago you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Chicago and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Chicago or family therapy in Chicago.
