Life is complex and sometimes we need a little extra support. Therapy can provide a space to manage these complexities, better understand yourself, and take steps toward creating the self-image and life you strive for. We can work together to create a collaborative relationship where you can heal, express yourself in a non-judgmental safe space, and lead a more meaningful life. I am passionate about working with individuals to increase their self-awareness, build their strengths, and explore options to move through the world a little easier.

While they are a vital part of our lives and can bring us so much joy - relationships are complex! Think about it - although people spend years learning and practicing most key skills, many people have had limited opportunity learning about relationships and emotional skills. I work with people who are often very successful in many aspects of their lives, but who get stuck in emotional or relational patterns. They know they desire for things to be different and more satisfying but are not quite sure how to get there. That's where therapy can be a powerful platform for change!

I strongly believe in healing the whole person in order to fully thrive in each dimension of life. It is impossible to heal the body without healing the mind and vice versa. Targeting the mind generally impacts us to make better health and wealth decisions, which results in us living a more fulfilling life. I dare you to begin this journey in partnership with me. I'm sure this is something that you have been wanting to do for a long time and now that you are here you already faced the most challenging part. Take that next step. I am very proud of you! You should be very proud of your courage. I truly look forward to speaking to you.

Humans are social beings that are constantly oscillating between autonomy and dependence on others. Our relationship with ourselves impacts our relationships with others; our relationships with others impacts our relationships with ourselves. To live a life of joy and purpose, it is critical that we examine these relationships in the context of the socio-historical realities that we are facing and the realities our ancestors before us faced. Distress can come from many sources and manifest in our minds, bodies, and spirits; healing can also come from many sources to strengthen our minds, bodies, and spirits.

Therapy improves relationships and helps people experience more freedom, fulfillment and joy. My work is to partner with clients to address their particular concerns and hopes for therapy. All of us go through periods of mild to extreme anxiety, depression, phobias, relationship issues, low self esteem, body image problems, unmet goals, procrastination and career dissatisfaction. In addition to experiencing ongoing issues, we all struggle during major life transitions like the loss of a loved one, a move, the birth of a child, starting or ending a relationship. Its essential to discuss your concerns and goals for therapy.

It takes courage to change, especially if you’re unsure what needs to change or how to change it. Psychotherapy can help you better understand what you want to change in your life and how to pursue those changes. In psychotherapy, we work together to develop a better understanding of you and the psychological problems bringing you to therapy. I see therapy as an opportunity to clarify what you want from life, better understand the unconscious emotional and relationship patterns keeping you stuck, and discover more fulfilling ways to relate to yourself and others.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Chicago?
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.
