As an artist, I understand what it can be like to have creative blocks or feelings of disconnection from your spiritual path. My practice is focused on people who have lost their direction in life, and hope to regain a sense of Self at a deep Soul level. Past or present trauma may be the source of these challenges, showing up as anxiety, depression, grief, anger or hurt. You may have a negative view of yourself, and this can impact your creativity & relationships. Many times, these feelings originated in childhood. I am certified in EMDR, and approach therapy holistically to honor your mind, body, spirit, emotions, & relationships.

Caring for my clients is not enough. The statements you find on this website are all from caring therapists. What's more important is finding the best therapist possible for YOU. If this were a life-threatening surgery for a loved one, you would do a lot of research and find the most qualified and experienced surgeon. You would do whatever you could to afford the very best help available. Don't settle for anything less for yourself when choosing a therapist. I want the absolute best for you! There are two important factors to consider when choosing a therapist.

Beginning a new job, becoming a parent, moving to a new state, figuring out a new norm after a global pandemic...life transitions are extremely difficult to maneuver. I provide clients with a safe space to unload and assess what is and is not working in their lives. I want to understand you and your specific method of functioning; then maybe I can offer some tools, perspectives, and supports that will make daily life a bit easier.

My commitment to my clients is to provide them with a welcoming place in which they can safely share their struggles and receive genuine support. People generally don't seek help from a therapist until they reach the point where their typical coping skills are no longer working. If you are at that point and need help discovering new methods to help you make it through life's challenges, I can help.

There are circumstances in life that can prevent individuals to enjoy life to its fullest. Regardless of the reason, psychotherapy is a powerful and beneficial tool for healing and personal growth. I'm here to offer you support and guidance through the process. My approach is tailored to each individual based on each individual’s unique needs that sometimes involves identifying strengths, building self-confidence and self-acceptance as well as challenging unhealthy beliefs and coping strategies in a therapeutic, supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere.

Thank you for visiting our profile page. You are searching, not just for someone who can assist you with the issue you are struggling with, but someone you can connect with; someone who can truly understand you. The best way to find that person is to interview them on the phone. Credentials are only the starting place for a therapy relationship. Keep in mind you are choosing somebody with whom you can share pretty much everything about you; perhaps things you've never told any other person. Make sure you pick somebody you like & trust.

You are doing so much for others that you barely have any time for yourself. You feel responsible for the way others feel. In all of this over-doing and over-caretaking, you have begun to forget who you are. Or, you may find that you’ve been taken hostage by your emotions. It’s really difficult to shake off certain feelings. Self-medicating or other addictive behaviors are the only ways that seem to help with coping, but it feels like it’s just created more problems in your life. The traumas from your past have caught up with you and you don’t know when you’re ever going to feel happy or at ease again.

Do you desire a meaningful relationship with yourself and others? Are life challenges impacting your quality of life? If so, you are not alone and therapy can provide you with the guidance and support needed to move toward mental, physical, and emotional balance for a healthier more successful life. I believe creating a strong therapeutic relationship is of paramount importance in the process of change and a key ingredient towards your progress in therapy. While being supportive, I’ll also challenge you to acknowledge and confront unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviors that are interfering with your personal goals.

In my work, I listen to what the client speaks verbally and through his or her body. I pay special attention to client's unspoken words. Through empathic attunement with the client, I become aware of what he or she is experiencing in the therapeutic process, as well as in his or her past. I am also impacted by client's painful experiences and resonate with his or her feeling states. Through becoming a witness to client's painful past, the client can become free of his or her earlier experiences and can feel joy and pleasure of living, being alive, loving, and being loved.

I help men & women find freedom through emotional healing. As a therapist, I know that genuine connection is a powerful healer. I know what it's like to feel like no one understands what you are going through, to care for everyone else while your story gets lost in the background. Unfortunately, I had some really "not so good" experiences with therapists, which lit a fire in me to become for others what I wish I had. You deserve the same love and care that you give others. Most of the time the healing journey ends with a newfound relationship with yourself building the bridge to who you want to be.

What type of Lake Forest mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Lake Forest?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
