I work with a range of concerns including complex trauma, grief & loss, anxiety, identity development, relational and family conflict, and life transitions.
Suffering is often the result of less than nurturing relationships and experiences. Anxiety and depression can make one feel imprisoned in the body. Family & culture can dictate how safe it is, or not safe, it is to express and be yourself. My experience as a Filipino American allows me deeper connection with people navigating challenging life transitions and relating to different cultures, and new relationships. I work to empower individuals within the context of systemic injustices and complications. I provide compassion and wisdom so that you can feel fully alive and authentic in your body, your world and in your relationships.

Hollis has a passion for helping families with adolescent children work through issues related to divorce, trauma, adoption, emotion regulation, school troubles, and trans-youth identity development. She also has experience with anxiety and depression, Bipolar, ADHD, and Autism spectrum disorders. As a couples therapist, she is sex positive and LGBTQIA+ affirming, and has experience working with non-monogamous couples. Even when working with individuals, she continues to use a systemic perspective since we naturally carry relationship vulnerabilities from our family of origin with us into other relationships and interactions.

I believe that relationships are pillars of emotional wellness. Children can often develop maladaptive methods of engaging in relationships, which can create stress within families. Adults may have coping strategies that negatively impact the important relationships around them. I provide a safe and reflective environment that brings awareness to these patterns, improving upon the quality of relationships.

I love providing a safe environment for people who are ready to identify and explore issues of concern, develop coping strategies, and move forward. Many things are going on that are overwhelming, and it’s tempting to tamp it all down - but it's better to listen to the part of you that knows it is time to heal, to move in and through difficulty. Clients come to see me to address depression, marital or family difficulties, concerns about substance use – and more recently, distress related to Covid, national politics, and world events. A trusted therapist can help, perhaps now more than ever, and it is an honor to provide that role.

Although my training emphasized an Adlerian approach to therapy, I have a broad range of experience with many therapeutic modalities and am able to tailor my practice to the needs of you or your family. I believe in treating the "whole-person," which means a one-size-fits-all approach will not work.

I help people connect and grow in relationships. I help couples and families find their way through the difficulties of being in relationship when the uncertain, the unexpected, and the uninvited threaten to unravel the very fabric that would otherwise get them through it. Things like dealing with past trauma or family issues, coming out, getting married, having a child, addiction, a diagnosis, losing a job, or an affair put strain on a couple or family. In time, it can sap all energy and leave members struggling to meet the changing needs of their relationships. I meet you in the struggle and help you figure out how to reconnect.

Life is complicated and seldom straightforward. We are often left facing challenges that are surprising and difficult to navigate. It may be a new role, a disappointment at work, a problem in a relationship, or some lasting echoes from the past that still show up, that causes us to feel anxious, angry, sad, confused and “stuck”. We try our best to manage by using coping strategies that turn out to be more problematic than helpful. We are then left thinking, what happened? Will I ever feel like my old self? Why can't I just get over this? If you are anxious, struggling to focus, overwhelmed by work or family, I am trained to help

Daily life for some can be isolating and debilitating; taking the first step to ask for help requires courage. I deeply understand that coming to an office in Evanston to talk about life’s struggles can feel intimidating and even unwelcoming for some. As a strengths-based therapist and yoga teacher, I am interested in hearing stories from people who do not feel like they fit in, whether it is because they are trauma survivors, people with mental illness, people of color, queer folks, or people who have been historically marginalized. I understand that identifying as a trauma survivor can lead to additional marginalization.
