In life we may face some difficult experiences which can leave us feeling defeated, scared, or overwhelmed. You don't have to handle it alone. Making the decision to go into therapy may be difficult, but therapy can be a space in which you experience comfort, healing, and growth. As every person is unique, so is my approach to working with each client.

As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and Art Therapist, I take a person-centered approach and use motivational interviewing to meet clients where they are and to empower them toward healing and thriving. I strongly believe that each person is the ultimate expert in her/his own life and has numerous strengths on which to build. I provide space and support for clients to grow and thrive, even in the midst of difficulty. For 7 years I have helped clients with a range of difficulties including developmental disabilities (or caring for another with them), anxiety, grief, life stress, substance use, and faith struggles.

Maya Angelou – “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.” I believe everyone has a story, and sometimes it is hard to know where to begin. The feeling of not being able to express oneself is difficult to endure. I consider therapy a safe and supportive space to share unspoken thoughts, ideas, opinions, and feelings that can be a source of life’s challenges. Therapy can instill hope with which your story begins to be seen and heard. I strive to cultivate a validating and non-judgmental space to empower you and your voice to live a fulfilling and meaningful life.

People come to therapy because of depression, anxiety, conflict, or trauma. Because of a broken relationship. Because life is devoid of joy, or stressful and overwhelming. Or because something has happened -- a death, loss of a job, a harrowing experience -- upsetting the way they see themselves, their relationships, even the world around them. To paraphrase Lao Tzu, people come to therapy because they recognize that if they don't change direction, they will end up where they are going. My job is to help them change their direction.

Beyond fears and confusion is where your worth and happiness sits. As a teen or as an adult, your fears may cause you to feel judged, excluded, or hurt - closing yourself off to the world. I guide you to a place where you are seen and understood, so you can feel accepted and appreciated. Together, we can challenge those harmful thought patterns and help you feel good about yourself and your life. I work with adults and teenagers facing concerns such as managing stress, improving relationships, loneliness, self-esteem, anxiety, sadness and depression. I will work to help you more effectively manage distress and maximize joy.

When we experience psychological and emotional stress, our brains and bodies have automatic coping mechanisms to help us survive, such as being flooded with adrenaline to help us fight or flee or shutting down to protect us from unimaginable stress. Sometimes, however, the things we experience can overwhelm our minds, bodies, and emotions, and we essentially get stuck re-experiencing our traumas and repeating harmful patterns in how we engage with ourselves and others. I believe we each have the power, ability, and wisdom within ourselves to heal, but that sometimes we need guidance in knowing how to harness our own resiliency.

I believe that we all have an inherent need to feel connected, seen, and understood and that is often where the growth, relief, and healing begins. My clinical work is based on a dynamic and relational approach that works collaboratively with clients to gain an understanding of how early experiences underlie behaviors, thoughts, feelings, and explore ways to connect with others. My approach is grounded in a social justice, sex-positive, and anti-oppressive lens, that posits an understanding of how systems of power and privilege manifest in individuals’ lives and impact individuals' ability to heal.

An athlete's life is different from other people. Does the stress of being an athlete sometimes makes you feel overwhelmed and alone? Are you expected to be almost perfect and fear you won't measure up and will get ridiculed? Are you afraid of not being "good enough" and coaches losing confidence in you? Does worrying about your performance leave you feeling overanxious? Do you have moments of overwhelming sadness but are afraid to let anyone know because you're an athlete and athletes can't show any signs of weakness, all the while feeling stressed out with no one to go to?

When people come together to speak of what is most important to us, something special happens. There is a deepening, a spark of truth, warmth, and connection. In therapy, we have the chance to connect in this way. Together we can find meaning where confusion lives, we can expand into compassion when judgment scorns, slowing into experience despite the rush of life’s demands. From this together place, we can address the wounds life has inflicted: the oppression and trauma, the depression, fear, and anxiety, the isolation and pain.

Maybe you have said something like, “What else can I do?” and it is possible you feel stuck or heartbroken because you can’t seem to connect with your partner as you want or are used to. You may find yourself in “robot mode” just going through your daily tasks only to continue the cycle of miscommunication and loneliness. Increasing your understanding of yourself can increase your self-worth and ability to connect with others in authentic ways. Also, as a couple, there can be instrumental changes that decrease explosive or dismissive interactions and increase the connection for intimacy.

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.
