Allowing yourself to be supported is the first step towards becoming your best self. However, without adequate support, overcoming feelings of sadness, overwhelm, disconnection or insecurity can be an exhausting and isolating experience. This is why I understand the importance of finding the right therapist. You may be seeking to feel truly heard and understood without judgment by someone you can trust to help you feel more grounded, confident, and satisfied in your everyday life. As a therapist, my main goal is to create that safe and trusting relationship to guide and empower you towards achieving ultimate personal growth.

My belief in the psychotherapeutic process is experiential and interpersonal at the core. I practice from an integrative clinical perspective with an emphasis on psychodynamic psychology. I believe the relationship between therapist and client is an essential condition of the work, as this is the connection that allows for empathy and the mutual understanding of experience. In addition to the centrality of the therapeutic relationship , I aim to facilitate the co-construction of a creative space relative to each person that is safe, open and meaningful in which to explore whatever is on one's mind or heart.

The therapeutic relationship itself is a vital component of the process.
At different points in life we can find ourselves "stuck," overwhelmed, defeated, or feeling disconnected from self or others. Social media has added another challenge for us to navigate while seeking connection. Therapy is an opportunity to make positive changes in one's life and relationships. By gaining an understanding of our needs, motives, and fears we can move out of an "auto-pilot" mode and into an active role in our lives. I work alongside clients to help them develop a more balanced, integrated, and grounded sense of self to be more aware of their choices in order to work to defeat the obstacles creating distress.

My clinical interests include identity development, family and relationship concerns, trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, and substance use.
Sometimes the way you relate to yourself and others no longer aligns with who you truly are, your values or how you envisioned your life. You may feel disconnected from yourself and others. You may feel anxious or misunderstood, and start to question your worth or love. To cope, you wear a mask to hide parts of yourself, which creates feelings of tension within yourself and with others. What if you lived your life according to your values while accepting and expressing your genuine self? I create a judgement free, safe therapeutic space where you can explore, understand and find your authentic self.

I understand relationship and work stress.
Are you struggling in your relationships? Are you and your partner experiencing conflict that you can't seem to resolve? I can help you understand the underlying issues and needs that lead to withdrawal or anger, and work with you to re-establish strong bonds. Together we will identify the negative patterns that repeat, learn how to interrupt those and to instead create positive conflict resolution skills.

I have experience working with a diverse group of individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues and life transitions.
Welcome! My practice is based on the belief that life brings us many challenges and at times we can get stuck. Feeling stuck can cause us to feel uncomfortable symptoms - anxiety, depression, anger, etc. I believe that therapy is a process where you can gain tools to address those challenges, determine what needs to be changed, work towards making those changes while navigating all the thoughts, feelings and emotions that may come up in the process. I strive to provide a compassionate and non-judgmental environment where clients can work towards living a value-driven, meaningful life.

A therapeutic relationship provides a unique opportunity for you to make sense of your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, or parts of yourself you may not understand or may not like.
We are living in a time of great uncertainty, much loss and collective trauma. Our basic instinct to gather in families and communities has been frustrated by the need to quarantine, social distance, work remotely. Many show up for work and risk their lives every day. We struggle with loneliness, increased anxiety, worry and depression and our ability to cope with the stresses in our life and our relationships has been challenged. Sometimes, our feelings and experiences were unanticipated and left us confused and overwhelmed. Working with an experienced clinical psychologist can help restore resilience and hope.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a River North, Chicago relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in River North, Chicago.
