Post-graduate training in LGBT issues, alongside practice with members of this community, has provided me with a special sensitivity in treatment.
Everyone experiences change in life, and sometimes those transitions are hard to manage alone. Uncomfortable feelings are a signal that it's time for something to change. I can assist you in exploring your options and making choices to put you back on track. My goal is to help you gain confidence and feel more in control. Feelings are normal, but can seem overwhelming without an outlet. Together we can discover ways to improve your comfort with yourself and those you care about, whether you are dealing with a loss or one of the other bumps along life's road.

We also support those within the LGBTQ community, and emerging adults.
Very rarely in our lives are we given the opportunity and the space to truly look at ourselves, where we have been, and the person we are looking to become. At Kate Giandonato & Associates, we create an environment where you can safely look at yourself, relationships, and potential barriers to achieving your goals. Our relationship-based training in Social Work + Child Development has given us the background to notice and work through the conflicting messages, thoughts and emotions present not only in the parent-child relationship, but in every relationship. We work with our clients to better understand and negotiate these most important relationships.

I'm located in downtown Oak Park near public transportation, enjoy working with other therapists, am an LGBTQ + ally, support health at every size approach.
It's a total crap shoot trying to choose a therapist, and you've been through this before. Maybe you have come close to making that first call several times but are filled with doubts and questions. You've gone to therapy but felt like the counselor didn't get you, maybe you're also a therapist searching for the right fit, or you have no idea how it could possibly help. Even worse, you're afraid of finding out something actually IS wrong with you. Perhaps you've also been questioning yourself, believing you shouldn't feel the way you, or you've been called "too sensitive."

Hello. I provide Individual Psychotherapy, as well as supportive Substance Abuse Counseling, with a Specialty in Adult Children of Alcoholism. My primary approaches to counseling are Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and a 12-Step foundation framework. CBT is one common and evidenced-based form of talk-therapy aimed at resolving problems concerning unhealthy emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. When working with addictions, I will tailor the traditional 12-Step process to meet your individual needs. Additionally, my approach often requires homework for you to complete between sessions.

I am a humanistic, client centered psychotherapist. I understand that living with symptoms that feel overwhelming can rupture confidence in yourself and in your ability to handle life's challenges. My goal is to help clients repair and deepen this trust in themselves over the course of therapy. No matter how great the challenges, I believe that we are all capable of growth and healing. As your therapist, I will walk beside you in this process. I will help you rediscover and build upon your unique strengths, voice, spark and purpose.

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Sometimes the hardest part of change isn’t letting go but rather learning to start over. Although change can be scary, you don’t have to do it alone. Therapy is a safe place to process those changes and learn from them in order to let go, rebuild and move forward.

Over the years of working with people in intense times of pain, conflict, loss, and hopelessness, I have been shown that people possess the ability to heal when given the opportunity in a safe environment. Working with adults in a variety of capacities, I have the perspective that through empowering relationships, people are better able to access growth, understanding, and positive change. Through compassion, reflection and understanding patterns of behavior, I facilitate a collaborative process of identifying goals, working toward self-understanding, and ultimately actualizing changes that people desire.

Our routines are thrown off and we find ourselves living life in ways that we never imagined. Yet, as uncertain as it all may feel, we try to manage these struggles as best we can. It is through the turmoil we encounter and the perseverance that follows that we truly learn the essence of our souls. Whether you're at crossroads, distressed over troubled relationships, facing difficult challenges. or looking for meaning in life, I can work with you as you explore through your journey of self-discovery.

My approach to therapy is not always your traditional approach. I utilize many evidence-based therapy modalities while also making our time together interesting and fun. Many times deep healing work can occur without even realizing it. You may find yourself feeling an array of emotions from crying to laughing as we work together. I believe that there is deep healing power in laughter.

My ideal client is looking for a strength-based approach to treatment - not just a focus on "problems." I believe that you already possess many skills and abilities that simply need to be unlocked to overcome your difficulties. I am passionate about helping others and consider myself to be a champion for social justice and working with clients who might come from marginalized communities or face discrimination or harassment. My ideal client is looking for a partner to help them in the change process - someone who will point out blind spots and provide practical steps to deal with their problems.

Therapy is an intimidating process. It requires you to face the struggles keeping you from reaching your full potential. Life is full of transitions. At each, we learn to adapt and adjust. However, these transitions can be difficult and can lead to debilitating symptoms like anxiety, depression, and anger, etc. Perhaps these are not happening to you, but you notice them in your child and are unsure of how to help. So, even though therapy can be intimidating, it can be the risk you need to take, to move forward towards the positive outcome you desire. If you are ready to take the next step, let me partner with you in this process.

What type of Berwyn mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Berwyn?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
