I offer counseling for stress, anxiety, depression, educational pathways, as well as relationship issues.
Our lives are made up of stories. Some chapters are beautiful, while some can be tragic. As we create our own narrative to the events of our lives, rushing to find some semblance of normalcy, we often become lost, challenged, overwhelmed. We forget there is beauty and resiliency in not only the events that bring us joy, but also the events that may not. As a licensed social worker, I work with you to identify meaning in each story that you share, finding a new and clearer perspective so you may live a happier life.

My mission is to help individuals and families uncover their true potential. The orientation which I chose to treat clients originates from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence based approach that has proven to be an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. The cognitive model emphasizes that the results of our emotions and behaviors are directly influenced by how we perceive events. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life and help to rewrite your story.

Do feelings of anxiety or depression leave you feeling "stuck" in life? Do you find yourself awake at night because you just can't quiet your mind, and expecting the worst when walking into unfamiliar situations, or starting new relationships? When things happen to us that are not within our control, feelings of anxiety are common. Life altering experiences are not always obvious... in fact, they can appear quite subtle, yet have a large impact on the way we view the world, and view ourselves.

This fosters feelings of isolation, being stuck or lost on our journeys. My goal is to help you uncover the stuck points, barriers and blocks; to help you navigate your relationships, goals; and to help process aspects of the past to propel you forward in life.

Stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and feeling anger does not have to be your norm.
In my previous career as a special education teacher, one day I observed my student flip a table. I knew that behavior was not an accurate reflection of the child I knew. Even back then, I knew behavior was information, it happened for a reason. Most of time, we are engulfed by the same patterns of behavior and symptoms that continue to keep us away from really embracing life whether it be personal or professional. I work with my clients to recognize the source of the stress patterns and create habits and goals to make shifts in the mindset.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Palatine. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
