Some of the approaches I utilize are client-centered, family systems, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychotherapy, and play therapy.
Seeking therapy is not an easy decision to make. I am a warm, empathetic, and culturally sensitive therapist with experience in working with children, adolescents, and adults. My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where individuals can feel comfortable exploring the reasons that have led them to seek therapy. Feeling connected and understood is crucial when working collaboratively with a therapist to help identify personal issues and moving towards a better self, marriage, or family life and improving overall functioning.

Today's children are faced with many pressures. Kids worry about lots of things-from being accepted by their peers and parents to worrying about academic pressures, ADHD, divorce, crime, drugs and illness. We understand these issues must be treated with great sensitivity-especially when working with children and adolescents. And that it is important that the therapeutic process be a positive experience in which young people feel safe and nurtured. Our goal is to help young people trust this process and understand that we're on "their team" as we help them successfully manage their world.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Park Ridge 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.
