At Forest Path Therapy, we will walk with you on your journey and support you in your work. We believe that the most important factors in therapy are a good fit for the client and a working relationship where clients feel heard and understood. In working with clients, we start with learning about a person's life, both what is working and what clients would like to change. We believe therapy works best when a client and therapist examine the different sides of an issue together and provide support and space for clients to decide how to move forward.

There are times in life where we feel stuck and unable to move to where we desire to be. Therapy seeks to intervene at that “stuck” place. During our time together, we can discover patterns in your relationships, thoughts, and actions. Patterns that, while they may have served a purpose in the past, may no longer be beneficial. My hope is to create an environment in which you feel the freedom to explore, question, and define your authentic self. I provide humor, gentle challenging, creative interventions and non-judgmental support to help you create a more fulfilling life.

My therapeutic approach is shaped by three beliefs: (1) regardless of your past and current situation, you are worthy of love and respect, (2) you have inherent strengths, and (3) systemic oppression plays a role in way we think, feel, and behave; therefore, in therapy, it is important to consider the relationship among systemic oppression, mental health and the multiple identities we hold. As a Black and queer person, I believe showing up as your authentic self is brave and healthy. Together, we will create a safe and non-judgmental space as we work through your goals.

I believe my role as a therapist is never to “fix” a client, but empower you to uncover a more enriched, fulfilled life. I have learned through years of professional training and a lifetime of personal experience; listening without judgment, with sincere empathy, and providing insight to better understanding of self in a safe and honest place shapes the foundation for positive change. Individualized treatment goals are developed in collaboration with each client, based on what you would like to achieve in therapy. If you are uncertain, that’s ok too, we will work together to identify areas to explore, therapeutic hopes, and goals.

I have loved being a therapist for 15+ years. It is such joy to make an impact in someone's life. I think that is something my clients would say about me - I want to help them make changes that will aid them in having the life they have always wanted. I am a believer that all we have is the present, sadly can't change the past, but can learn from it to have the future we want. I specialize in anxiety, depression, self-esteem and relationship problems.

What type of Chicago 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 Chicago?
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.

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.
