Most of us humans have experienced trauma or simply too much stress. Thoughts, body sensations, and images/memories/dreams can cause more emotional and physical pain--and vice versa. To get rid of these unwanted things completely may be expected goals; but to diminish and manage them with less pain or tension is more realistic. To be understood by others, to feel more safe, to feel supported, to receive usable feedback and new ideas--these are goals I will surely help any client experience. Somatic Experiencing facilitates clients in moving forward, at their own pace, building more resilience self-acceptance and confidence.

I value my ability to aid people in processing their lived experiences and navigating how to manage the harder parts of life more effectively. I believe people want to be understood ... we want to have a space where we can share the scary or uncomfortable parts of ourselves in order to understand ourselves better. I believe people need a space to process the harder parts of life to not feel so alone and to work toward living more happily. I hope I can provide you that space.

People often look for a coach or a counselor because they feel like something is wrong in their lives. Maybe you aren’t doing “good enough,” in school, or you feel like you can’t handle the endless train of stressors that confront you in your daily life. Maybe you have trouble finding meaningful connections with friends, family, or your romantic partner. I understand, because I sometimes feel this way, too. This is part of the human condition. Remember, you are constantly in the process of becoming who you are, and all these difficulties are twists and turns on that path towards yourself. I will walk that path with you.

What type of Champaign 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Champaign?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
