I pride myself on meeting my clients where they are, and working collaboratively with each of my clients and couples. We all at times go through periods when processing, whether towards change or healing, becomes necessary. I hope to make that process a bit more comfortable, so that you are not alone, and also to help you move through your journey with integrity and intention. Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths.

Stories have always fascinated me. They have the power to move us emotionally, to educate and instruct, to entertain us, and to cultivate true compassion and empathy through the act of sharing a story with another. They are also a powerful vehicle for how we perceive, interpret, define and live our lives, yet sometimes it can be easy to forget that we can be the authors of our story, not just a character proceeding along some previously determined narrative.

I believe therapy is about growth, going deeper and finding a better way to live. Sometimes people feel fear and frustration, anger and hurt, conflict and confusion. I value providing a safe, supportive place where they can explore these difficulties and discover a viable path to their goals. Even in such difficult spots as death and dying, illness, loss, or addiction, a way can be found by working together.

My clients are hard-working and desire a better quality of life. They are willing to be challenged, trying new techniques to move forward. I use information about normal developmental transitions to move people when they are stuck. The focus is on identity and spirituality as themes I weave into my work. This does not mean organized religion, rather concepts such as connections, acceptance, peace, and letting go. If you choose to combine religion and spiritualuity, for your own growth, that is your choice.

My ideal patient would be someone who has realized that something in his or her life seems to not be working in the way that person has expected or wished for. That individual would be thoughtful and open to exploration and discovery of previously unknown factors that may be interfering with life. I also have a strong belief in each individual's ability to discover for oneself what fits best for him or herself. It is my job to help my patients come to recognize their ability to find what that may be.

My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that each individual has the capacity to affect change in his/her life. I also believe in my responsibility to actively engage with my client and facilitate their movement through their issues and feelings. Different theoretical interventions may be more facilitative depending on one's particular needs, one's background, one's view of the world, and one's capacity for insight. As a therapist, I truly consider the individual as a whole and attempt to utilize the most effective tool to facilitate progress towards independent wellness given the particular needs and challenges of my client.

Sometimes, maybe more often than not, you're feeling hopeless; worried about your family or relationship. You're struggling to get through the day feeling like you are drowning while everyone else is breathing. You're feeling disconnected from your family & they seem to be arguing & fighting more. Your partner feels distant & you aren't connecting with them like you used to; romance has mostly diminished. Everyone is so busy and you're feeling lost and alone. There are times when you feel on edge but aren't sure why, like a weight is sitting on your chest. The thoughts "I just want to feel better" have taken up space in your head.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Chicago using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Chicago. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Chicago

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Chicago you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Chicago and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Chicago or family therapy in Chicago.
