Have you ever felt “stuck” in your life and not sure how to move forward to make positive changes? I strongly believe that when we cannot make changes to our situation, we need to make changes to our thinking and perception, which requires exploration and support. When we can make changes to our situation, it can be risky and scary and best done with plenty of planning and validation. I am passionate about helping people make these “shifts” in perception and situation.

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.

Dual Diagnosis Therapists
Dual diagnosis (also called co-occurring disorders, COD) occurs when clients suffer from a mental illness while also experiencing a substance abuse problem. Diagnosing a psychiatric disorder in someone with a substance abuse issue is challenging as the drug abuse itself can often produce psychiatric symptoms. These dual diagnosis therapists in Gurnee may provide dual diagnosis programs, dual diagnosis facilities or Gurnee dual diagnosis treatment - dual diagnosis rehab may be relevant. A therapist can help provide support or connect you to a Gurnee COD network or support group.
