Anxiety and depression impact your work, relationships, and personal goals. But with support, it is completely possible to feel better and manage these often-debilitating symptoms. I specialize in assisting adults with anxiety/depression to manage their symptoms and reduce the impact they have on their lives. This includes women who suffer from cyclical anxiety, depression, or anger in relation to their menstrual cycles (aka PMS/PMDD.)

"Mental strength is not the ability to stay out of the darkness; it's the ability to sit present in the darkness knowing the light will shine again”, (ADHDsuperhero). I have a passion for assisting my clients through this process. Self-care is a practice we rarely exercise. You cannot care for others until you take care of yourself. Make the decision to take time for you; you are worth it!

The ideal client for me is someone who is ready for something different. It’s normal to feel fear when stepping into change and I work with my clients so they don’t have to be stopped or dismayed by said fears or doubts. The therapeutic process involves a willingness to learn and being open to outside and differing perspectives. I’m passionate about partnering with clients who are willing to work together to achieve their goals.

Life can be beautiful, complicated, and messy all at the same time. The road at times can be riddled by twists, turns, and detours you were not expecting. It would be nice if life was a straight path to fulfillment and happiness but life is not linear. Perhaps you found yourself starting over after a recent break-up? Or, you experienced the loss of a loved one. Maybe even faced with an unexpected medical diagnosis or have been questioning your purpose in life. Whether you’re prepared or not, life has a way of making you feel the challenges you are faced with are too difficult to overcome.

Finding a therapist can feel overwhelming. You probably sense that it’s finally time to reach out for help, but feel unsure of where to begin. Perhaps you feel uncertain if there is anyone out there who can understand, let alone help. I believe that the strength of the therapeutic relationship directly impacts an individual’s capacity for change, and thus my first priority is to cultivate a safe, open, and compassionate relationship with each of my clients. My style of therapy is supportive, lively, and direct. My goal is to help you learn to trust yourself and feel less weighed down by self doubt.

I work with clients to notice, give attention, and slow down when the world wants us to ignore, distract, and speed up. By gently exploring family patterns and our ways of being in relationship, we can come to intriguing conclusions about ourselves and others. By cultivating and accessing community, self-compassion, and intimacy (both physical and emotional), we can heal from trauma, and lift ourselves out of even the darkest places.

I seek to facilitate transformation, thus enabling clients to realize their potential. There is a level of healing necessary to empower individuals to overcome crisis. Healing transforms us, it produces fundamental changes in the nervous system, emotions, and preceptions, enabling us to move from trauma to peace, from immobility, fear and constriction to fluidity, courage and receptivity.

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 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.
