So, if your teenager is a challenge, or if your personal inner life is a challenge, reach out.
The life of the mind is challenging and complicated, but it should not be an impossible nightmare. The daily struggles we face, relationships, inner self, tasks, education et cetera are real. Those things can weigh one down, but they should not be able to crush. Therapy is not magic, it is not a promise of a life free of challenges. However, it is a promise of companionship. It is the offer to walk with you through those dark, shameful, and sometimes forgotten places in your mind and soul. it is the process of persuading you to change direction. It is the skill needed to gently guide and focus. So, let’s talk.

Having extensive clinical history in higher levels of care, applying CBT exposure therapy, and being certified in DBT I have confidence your child/teen will learn techniques they will want to use both inside and outside of sessions.
Everyone deserves to be accepted, appreciated and acknowledged. When stress overcomes we often forgot how deserving we are of these needs. That's why it is my mission to supply a safe space for your child/teen to reconnect in expanding their self-worth and coping skills. Since everyone is unique, I adapt my approach to meet their needs, while integrating evidenced based practices along with humor, art, and play.

This past year was a doozy! If it has left you, your child or your teen feeling overwhelmed, anxious, less motivated and altogether out of sorts, you are not alone.
Therapy isn't just for people with "issues." Therapy is for people. Period. Therapy is a mirror that can help you see who you truly are, who you've been all along, and who you want to become. It's a place to experience unconditional acceptance, safety and non-judgement. Therapy is a map, a flashlight, or a navigation system that can help you find your way. Therapy rocks! I'm glad you're here, and I hope that I get the chance to help you or your child flip on that flashlight, hold up that mirror and enjoy this one wild and wonderful life we have. Contact me today to get started!

It's hard to be our best when we aren't feeling the best - especially emotionally. This is even more true with children and adolescents because they don't always have the coping skills they need to work through difficult situations. As a therapist, I work with your child/teen to understand what made difficult moments so hard and teach them new ways to deal with challenges. This helps to improve feelings of anxiety, low mood, and even changes behavior. My goal is to boost your child's and teen's skills so they can better work through future challenges. As a parent, I ask that you partner with me in making these changes.

As a parent with a struggling child, you often wonder what you can do to make them feel better. It seems like everything you have tried isn’t working. It can be a bit overwhelming to find outside resources because you want to make sure you find someone that can connect with your child. How would it feel to know that they will ask for help when they need it? I have personal experience with ADHD, anxiety, and depression, which gives me a unique perspective during the counseling experience. I will guide your child by developing healthy perceptions of themselves and the ability to strengthen their relationships.

When is the last time someone asked the question, “how are you?” but *really* asked you? With so many demands on our time and attention, it is easy to feel lost in a never-ending to do list where your personal needs and desires are towards the very bottom. When you think of where you are, you find yourself constantly comparing your life to those around you and where you are never feels like enough. You’ve tried sharing your feelings with friends and it somehow turns into a talk about their issues, leaving you feeling mostly unheard. The cycle of all give and no take ends here. It's time for the focus to just be on you.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Glen Ellyn and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
