Dr. Liana Gerdov, LCPC, PsyD, Counselor in Palatine
ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS! You feel as if you are stuck in a bad movie re-run. Work, home, sleep. Repeat. You feel unhappy, drained of energy, as if you are just existing as life passes you by. You isolate, feeling misunderstood. You feel as if you are drowning in fear. doubt and hopelessness. You lose yourself in fears and worries. The more you ignore it, the more you feel out of control. You think, "Is there something wrong with me? Am I normal?" Eliminating the thoughts that keep you feeling trapped and powerless isn't weakness. It is empowering.
You want to wake up feeling motivated and energized, able to think clearly and positively, to feel connected with others. You want to have healthy, meaningful relationships, and balance your moods, needs, and expectations. You want to start putting yourself first again and regain control of your life.
I invite you to a safe, personalized environment where you will be accepted, understood and guided. I utilize traditional psychotherapy techniques, holistic mind/body approaches and spiritual/energy work. My approach is very collaborative, united in purpose. Let go of anything holding you back and give me a call today.
