I work with individuals and couples with a wide variety of problems including relationship difficulties, life transitions, depression , anxiety, and loss. I place great importance on creating a safe and non-judgmental environment in which my clients can freely explore their thoughts and feelings. My clients report that they appreciate the feedback I give them and the opportunity to consider their problems from another point of view. I have found that when I feel I have a good understanding of my client that they also feel understood and supported by me, leading to productive conversations identifying how to change old patterns and achieve personal growth.

Recognizing the impact of these various identities when added to stress, anxiety, depression , etc.
My goal as therapist is to assist adult clients in connecting current stressors to past events. Therapy focuses on providing support-and sometimes challenge-as clients cope with experiences from daily stress to emotional challenges (anxiety, depression ) to significant life events (death, divorce) in a safe, compassionate therapeutic relationship. I work with clients to identify the source, impact on current functioning and well-being, and develop insight- and behaviorally-based strategies for healthy sustainable coping. We work towards both managing symptoms and addressing the source, whether a single life event or an unfulfilling style of coping developed over several years across multiple relationships.

Disorders such as depression and anxiety are often complicated by substance abuse, and vice versa. I'm experienced in treating such co-occurring disorders and other issues in a supportive, open and effective way that respects clients' autonomy and values. What this means in practice is a customized approach to each individual, based on their specific needs, that draws on different therapeutic traditions and techniques. These may include psychodynamic, looking at close early relationships and issues; cognitive-behavioral therapy, untangling connections between thoughts, feelings and behaviors; mindfulness, drawing on ancient mind-body practices such as meditation that neuroscience has increasingly validated; as well as others.

In today’s world, many tasks and responsibilities can easily become overwhelming as life throws us unexpected obstacles. We can become anxious, depressed , hopeless, feeling like there is no rhyme or reason to what we are going through, to what we are thinking and feeling, or even to life itself. We might choose to escape from our problems, angst, a sense of void, our past, or our daily thoughts through indulging in external gratifications, by using drugs and alcohol, sex, relationships, or other means. We often get stuck in our thinking, consumed by negative self-talk and perceptions of ourselves.

I have worked with adolescents, families and individuals through child welfare, inpatient behavioral health and the perinatal population struggling with depression , anxiety, and substance use.
Pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting can be the happiest times of our life but can also be the hardest. We live in a society that is slowly opening up to the realities of parenthood and the difficulties it can bring us, the trauma it can resurface, the patience we quickly loose and the grief we can have for the life we once had. I work with parents to heal and create change. I understand the difficulties of parenting and the generational trauma those seeking therapy are breaking.

Imagine waking up tomorrow and all of today's "problems" are solved. What might life then look like? Therapists can employ this thought experiment in order to help clients establish a vision for therapy. Inevitably, the desire for cultivating meaningful relationships and connections emerge as themes. Disruptive childhoods, social anxiety, or lack of emotional understanding among others all play a role in feeling disconnected. Most clients resonate with feeling depressed and anxious over a period of time. In the broader context of relationships, learning healthier ways to connect through effective therapy can provide the antidote.

In the 20+ years I have worked in private practice I have treated individuals and families with a variety of presenting problems including anxiety, depression , unfulfilling relationships, parenting concerns, identity formation, history of trauma and abuse, autism spectrum concerns, infidelity, and many others.
When a client comes to me for psychotherapy the first goal is to fully understand the nature of their discontent in the context of a warm, open, nonjudgmental space. We work together to create a vision of what it will look like when the client is feeling more content, and then within the therapeutic relationship move toward change that will realize the client's vision. I am a combination of warm, supportive, directive, interpretive, and reflective. The therapy may be short term or long term, and may be individual or with significant others (family or partner).

My areas of specialization include body image/eating issues, depression , anxiety, life transitions, and women's health issues, such as sexual victimization, recovery from breast cancer, and assertiveness.
Compassion. Insight. Empowerment. I'm committed to blending clinical expertise with warmth and respect for each client's wisdom, to create a healing, growthful partnership. A hallmark of my approach is cultivating mindfulness: nonjudgmental, moment by moment awareness that promotes living more fully, less reactively, and making better use of one's resources. Whether addressing depression , anxiety, stress, past trauma or current relationships, I begin by creating a space of acceptance. Here, we cultivate insight: the ability to observe accurately, think clearly, and choose wisely. Together, we explore options, drawn from clinical scholarship, collective wisdom, and clients' evolving self-awareness.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in South Loop, Chicago. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
