Are you Anxious, Depressed? Are you a First Responder? You may be fed up with your inability to share your day with loved ones in an effort to shield them. Are you wanting to change the way you deal with stress (dark humor, isolation, over eating etc.) and/or are you feeling irritable, overwhelmed, confused and questioning “why now”? You might not even remember a time you didn’t feel like this. Either way, one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. Most of all, you’re ready to change your outlook on life which will include hope.

Are you feeling "out of sync," unmotivated, confused, lethargic, anxious, depressed? Are your relationships suffering? Your productivity at work? Your belief in yourself? When one area of your life is depleted, it can create imbalance in other areas of your life. This can include areas of emotional health, physical health, nutrition, sleep, relationships, work, money, and spirituality. My holistic approach addresses clients as a "whole" person...all aspects within yourself (biology, thoughts, feelings) and outside yourself (work, culture, relationships, finances, etc.). As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Certified Holistic Health Coach, I facilitate your body's own natural healing process.

As humans, we are wired for connection with one another and sometimes it can be challenging to let down our defenses and open up to others. I believe that being in therapy will allow you to understand your vulnerabilities, identify troublesome patterns, and make concrete changes in the present that will carry into the future. My areas of specialty include relationship concerns, communication, and sex/intimacy issues as well as conflict resolution.

I enjoy working with people in a safe and supportive atmosphere where a person can be who they really are. As individual's lives are often complex and surely unique, I work collaboratively with clients to learn about their reasons for seeking therapy as well as to enliven and deepen the therapeutic process through greater self-reflection. Ultimately, I believe that human beings are self-healing, and that the symptoms and contexts that lead a person into their therapeutic journey can often teach and bring meaning in ways that enhance psychological wholeness.

I believe that therapy is a collaborative and creative process that unfolds through developing a strong alliance with a therapist. I strive to provide a warm, supportive, and nonjudgemental space for people to name, feel, and share their unique experiences. Although it can be difficult to put your emotional life into words, the decision to do so has the power to open up new ways of knowing and understanding yourself. It can also reveal patterns in your life that you might wish to explore in order to create space for more meaningful and satisfying possibilities.

Do you ever feel like the support of your family and friends is not enough? You don't have to be diagnosed with a mental health disorder to benefit from therapy. Many people turn to therapy for help with everyday life issues: relationship problems, anxiety, and self-doubt. Others seek therapy during difficult times such as sexual abuse and grief. In order to reap the benefits of therapy it's important that you choose the right therapist- someone you can trust, who makes you feel valued with the experience to help you overcome emotional challenges and make changes for the better in your life.

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.
