I am skilled in treating depression, anxiety, grief / loss , and self-esteem.
Life does not always end up the way we expect. There are challenges along the way and growing pains through each stage we go through. It is a journey that fluctuates between being a walk to being a race to being a marathon, then back again. Are you feeling overwhelmed by the ebb and flow of this journey? Are you feeling like you can’t keep up? This is my message to you: You are stronger than you think! Taking the steps to work through your emotions, and processing them through counseling is key to finding healing within yourself.

Each person experiences trauma, grief , and loss differently. Not only is each individual story unique, but the response is too: some have trouble identifying or expressing how they’ve been impacted by their experiences, while others notice the effects but aren’t sure how to make sense of them. Whether your relationships aren’t functioning the way they once were, you are experiencing anxiety or PTSD symptoms, or life just seems to have a fog over it that never seems to lift, I’m here to help you process these experiences and the ways they have influenced you and your world.

For 15 years I have accompanied individuals and families impacted by grief and loss , caring for ill and aging family members, working through life-stage transitions, experiencing depression and anxiety, and coping with chronic and life-limiting illnesses.
Life often brings change, transition and loss , and this can sometimes feel overwhelming. We often feel like we have to face these challenges alone, yet we can often benefit from seeking support. As a therapist, it's my role to encourage you to explore your goals and support your growth, so that you can live your life to its fullest. I strive to create a safe, open space for sharing, and approach work together with warmth and authenticity. Each person's story is unique, and we will work together to identify strategies and approaches to enhance your well-being and quality of life.

I am adept at helping people navigate anxiety and emotional woundings, and I can help you navigate grief and loss .
Therapy can heal wounds and create more rewarding relationships. I am not interested in simply pathologizing you and your challenges. Instead, I work with you to examine how your experience of the world has shaped your reality and your relationship with your self. During sessions, I will encourage you to narrate your life with full autonomy. I will ask you questions that promote deeper reflections. I might challenge some of your thinking, but I will also help you to trust me. Doing so will allow you to develop a new, different awareness that responds to the deepest motivations and meanings in life.

Are you facing a new medical diagnosis or grieving the loss of a loved one? These massive changes can leave you feeling isolated, anxious, and unsure of where to turn. You might also feel overwhelmed by all that there is to do now: How do I talk to my children and family? What if work finds out? How will I ever get through this? If you have recently received a chronic, acute, or terminal medical diagnosis, there is the added stress of navigating the medical system and the uncertainty of what is ahead. Eventually, the distress, anxiety, and sadness that comes as a result of these changes can feel all-consuming.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience helping individuals manage anxiety, grief , low-self-esteem, workplace stressors and relationships.
Seeking out therapy and finding a therapist who is a good match can take time, but that effort is often rewarded with greater insight into one’s self and relationships, a feeling of groundedness, and greater self-esteem. I feel that one of the most rewarding outcomes of therapy is when a client is able to shed a label they’ve felt limited by due to the actions or words of others or even themselves

Grief Therapists
Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

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