~ No current availability ~ You may feel increasingly more anxious, overwhelmed, or possibly depressed. Life may even feel unmanageable. You might find yourself trying to fill internal voids with external things, such as alcohol, drugs, food, sex, or relationships. Experiences from your past could leave you feeling stuck in your present. Change can be terrifying, and taking that first step may feel impossible. * I became a therapist in Chicago to help others see their worth and start to take ownership of their lives. Despite what that non-stop loop of negative self-talk in your head may tell you, you are good enough just as you are.

Often when people start working with me they tell me intellectually they know how to handle something but emotionally they are stuck and keep doing the same unhelpful things over and again. Other times, people come in not knowing why they feel as they do, but they just want to feel better. Initially, couples frequently report having the same problem or argument. By collaborating with my clients, I help them work through what is getting in the way of healthier functioning and relationships.
