Growing up with a physical, developmental or intellectual disability can present unforeseen challenges during adulthood. Once teenagers transition into adulthood, not only do they leave behind support services at school but they also begin a transition into more independent living at home, in a CILA or group home, or at an assisted living facility. Adults and their families can experience confusion and anxiety as they search for new resources to help them cope with the many challenges of adulthood.

**Now seeing clients in-person at Arlington Heights location** Depression and anxiety can be symptomatic of misaligned dynamics and unrealized potential, and sometimes the circumstances in our lives, including jobs and relationships, aren't accurate reflections of how we see ourselves. Good therapy can help you view your problems through a side-mirror. With kindness and patience, a good psychotherapist reflects and helps you understand the architecture of your life, empowering you to change that which no longer serves you.

I have served hundreds of families over the years and have developed a specialty working with children (four and up), adolescents and young adults. I believe these are important formative years in a person's life and sometimes there are bumps along the way. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, self-harm, school-refusal, grief and loss, sexual abuse, behavioral issues, dealing with divorce, and much more. I understand that each individual is different and thus treatment needs to be tailored to each person's needs and wants. I also enjoy working with a variety of adults and young couples.

You have reached your limit. You find yourself in a place between feeling too proud to ask for help and longing for the joy and contentment that others seem to have found in their lives. You aren't alone. The majority of my current and former clients struggled in silence for a long time, believing that they just needed to "be stronger" and push through on their own. When you are experiencing depression, anxiety, PTSD, insomnia, postpartum depression/anxiety, or facing a major life change, it's not a matter of strength. It's a matter of finding the courage to ask for help.
