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.

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!

My passion is understanding stored childhood trauma and the long-term effects it can have on adults; particularly as it relates to addiction issues. Unresolved traumatic experiences very often render a person with feelings of anxiety and depression; particularly for those who were never given the appropriate tools and support to process their trauma. These emotional states can lead to poor coping skills in our efforts to meet life’s challenges, and very often anxiety and depression can lead us to feeling incapable of helping ourselves or ever changing our circumstances and clearly seeing our potential.

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.

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.
