Do you feel like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh? Your outlook on life is gloomy at best. Are you attracted to risk, and as such, using drugs/alcohol to the point where it's derailing your life? Are you spinning about a social outing, what to eat or not eat, or a work deadline that feels out of reach? Has your world become so small because you’ve pushed friends and family away? Trying to show up for yourself is more than you can do, much less showing up for others. Do you avoid trying something new, because if you can’t do it perfectly or right, you don’t want to do it at all. In all this madness there’s no time to thrive; only survive.

As I experience all the shifts life has to offer, I have developed more of an understanding of the value in considering others and my own mindset. Problems, uncertainty, and challenges are not going away; they are always going to be in our lives. The thought things must always be set in stone is an illusion from the start. However, if we change our mindset and change those same problems, uncertainty, and challenges into growth moments without limitations or limiting beliefs and focus on solutions; we are left feeling empowered to create change, and I am excited to go on the journey with you.

The ideal client, my colleagues tell me, is someone who respects the boundaries of the relationship, knows when and how to use their therapist (we tell you) and tries to do "homework," the assignments talked about in therapy that are likely to help. Often there isn't any! But people come to therapy because they need it, not because they want to hang out, and they want something to change, not only in others, but in themselves. Therapy is, or should be, a safe place. Most seasoned therapists are still in it because they find it effective and personally gratifying. I guess I'm one of them.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Chicago view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues. 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.
