You are not broken and you do not need to be fixed. There are some struggles in which you need extra support, an empathic person to hear you, skills and techniques, and a space in which to be you. I am a clinician who has worked with clients dealing with anxiety, depression, substance use, crisis, and family. My approach is to connect with the client while also implementing research based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma Focus, Experiential, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Client Centered Therapy.

I work with adults and adolescents dealing with depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder, grief and adjusting to life transitions.
We all have times in our lives when things get hard to sort out, they are painful to bear, or frightening to face, and we may want to make things better, but just seem stuck. It can be helpful then to turn to someone, outside our circle of family and friends, with knowledge and skills to give us the support we need. I feel privileged to be in that sort of position as a therapist, when clients allow me into their lives by sharing personal experiences and emotions. I enjoy helping them discover ways to overcome whatever difficulties they are having.

In a clinical setting I have provided skills to aid anything from anxiety to psychosis.
Reaching out for help in our most vulnerable moments can be overwhelming and scary. Sometimes our self talk convinces us that we should figure it out on our own, or that our problems aren’t as bad as they could be - and we find ourselves hesitant to make that next step. I will meet your bravery and vulnerability with compassion, curiosity, feeling, and a bit of humor. I want to center what matters to you, develop skills and abilities, and help you rediscover a fullness in being alive and in your body.

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 McHenry anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in McHenry.
