I believe in the fundamental worth and unique strengths of every individual, and that an attention to these attributes is the bedrock of any helping relationship. I also believe that much of the emotional and relational struggles we suffer in life are born in experiences of pain through which we labored to survive, and that these laborings often limit us or become self-defeating later in life. The therapeutic relationship then becomes a space of uncovering, of pursuing self-knowledge, and of re-experiencing or re-learning authentic relationship through which healing, growth, and a sense of thriving can occur.

I believe that every individual is unique, and that starting therapy can be difficult no matter your age. A person’s mental health is very important, and while it can be burdensome to start the process of improving it, reaching out for support is an important first step. I want to make the process of finding a therapist that works for you easy and painless. Even if I end up not being the right fit, I will help to find someone who I believe will work well with you and your needs.

The step to enter into counseling is a courageous one, it encompasses your willingness to connect, to be vulnerable, and to seek hope in healing. I see counseling as a way for clients to make change, to liberate one’s self from patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that may not be serving you effectively. These patterns are often imposed by society, family, and ones' own culture and/or gender. Counseling is a space to help navigate all that comes with life’s changes. In practice, I specialize in anxiety, depression, grief/loss, OCD, infertility, relationships issues, job change/loss, and other adjustment related stressors.

You love each other, but you’re tired of your relationship or marriage feeling so hard all the time. You can’t seem to do anything right. No matter how many times you try to bring up the issues, you walk away feeling unheard or misunderstood. Sometimes you wonder if your partner really cares. You feel like you carry the weight of the household, the kids, the family, but there is nothing left for you. Often you feel criticized, so you shut down and stop trying. Fights never get resolved because life gets busy. And you are starting to wonder if this marriage/relationship is worth it. You just want to feel close again.

Societal norms, social oppression, and even loved ones can contribute to us feeling like we are not enough. This can have a significant impact on our thoughts and feelings about ourselves, and our negative automatic thoughts can be persistent and isolating. They can affect the way we approach others and how we navigate the world.

From an early age, experiences within our families and the communities in which we live significantly influence who we are. As we attempt to navigate this swirl of experience, we develop strategies to cope with it all. Unfortunately, and despite our best efforts, some of these coping strategies can lead us into distressing cycles that affect our relationships and overall mood. In this case, we might need help to understand where these patterns come from. Fortunately, we can do this by working with a therapist to improve these “problems with living.”

I believe we all deserve self-compassion and a sense of self-worth—even during our toughest moments. Unpacking the emotions connected to our struggles can feel challenging or even overwhelming, but it can also motivate us to discover our full potential and tap into our inner world to regain control. Whether you are struggling to find your purpose, adjust to change, cope with stress, or work through interpersonal conflict, it can be a powerful experience to share your story in a non-judgmental, healing space.

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.
