“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” - Friedrich Nietzsche. As a therapist I believe in helping clients find their genuine way by uncovering issues that are preventing them from reaching their potential. Rooted in psychodynamic theory, I frequently use treatment models from other theories that best suit the client. I have even used meditation as a tool to help clients. I have grown as a therapist with everyone who has been a client. I strive not to view them as another client but another person I can learn about and help.

Each of us has a unique combination of innate strengths and, yes, weaknesses. Psychotherapy - or counseling -- is a process of regaining and leveraging our strengths, shoring up deficiencies and effectively managing the challenges in our lives. Our ability to learn is another important gift we all possess. Psychotherapy allows the client to either learn, re-learn or even unlearn thoughts and behaviors which, in turn, leads to emotional well-being. Our emotions are important signals, but they need not become emergencies themselves.

Could you believe there may be another way to look at your experiences and ideas about yourself and your life? Maybe you're new to therapy and ready to try a different approach. Or maybe therapy has been helpful in the past and you're looking for a tune up. As uncertain that first step may seem, with the right fit it may open up possibilities for you and set you on a new path.

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.

As a therapist, I am a witness to this journey that you are on and a fellow traveler. It’s my work to create a supportive space in which your thoughts, behaviors, and emotions can be explored with curiosity, kindness, and pragmatism. Together we will look at discomfort and explore the insight that it offers. I will ask questions that help you make connections to yourself and make meaning of the discomfort you feel. You will be given tools to map your thoughts, associations, physical experiences, and emotional states. We will practice being present for experience and feeling where there is openness and where there is restriction.

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.
