I have a great deal of experience helping those struggling with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and other life stressors.
I want to commend you for your bravery in taking the first step towards reaching out for help. Counseling can give you a non-judgmental place to vent as well as a place to learn about new ways to manage overwhelming feelings. As a therapist, my main way of understanding how people work is through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It can help us challenge our negative thoughts and utilize healthy coping skills. I primarily take a humanistic approach with my clients and make sure to address psychosocial, biological, developmental, spiritual, and cultural issues as needed since every client is unique.

I have worked with many clients going through grief and loss, anger, depression, parenting issues, anxiety and more.
As a psychotherapist, my approach with clients is very down to earth. Not all clients and problems are the same which is why I tend to be a bit more eclectic in style. Life is stressful and filled with enormous challenges; our strength is put to the test daily. We all face dilemmas in our personal and professional lives often causing conflict in ourselves and our relationships. What is often most comforting is knowing that we are not alone. Through the course of therapy, I have one objective: to reach your goals together.

Are you worried for your child? Sometimes your child is stressed and they are showing you in acting out behaviors, anxiety or depression. While we specialize in youth, I also see individuals and families for counseling services designed to help discover new ways to approaching problems that currently hold you or your family back. For parents, this may look like learning ways to reduce stress and implement consequences that are effective at changing negative behaviors in children. For children and teens, this could include learning expression of feelings in words, art, or movement to build helpful ways of coping with tough emotions.

Tough times can be hard to get through, but it's possible to overcome them. Maybe you're a parent of a struggling teen whom often wonders what you can do to help them feel better? Maybe you're struggling with a difficult past or current situation that's left you feeling hurt, hopeless, lost, confused, angry, or alone? Please know that you are NOT alone and there is hope! We can work through this together in a supportive, non-judgment space where issues are slowly confronted with empathy to inspire healing and growth. You can OWN your story, heal, and move forward with hope and determination.

I specialize in the following: depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar mood disorder, ADHD, marital problems, grief recovery, and in the integration of psychology and spirituality.
When we deny our feelings, pushing them away (depressing them), we get depressed. When we shame our needs and criticize ourselves for being weak/needy, we strengthen the fear that causes us to hide who we really are. This increases anxiety. When we deny traumatic memories, we develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Numbing reality and denying real injustices will protect us from pain in the short run. Denying what is real, however, flings us into an inner conflict in which we hate the things that need love the most, and love the things that make us most dysfunctional.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Gurnee anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Gurnee.
