While our therapists are trained in many theories and approaches to therapy, they are uniquely skilled in supporting you by using creative thinking and creative expression (art, movement, music, hypnotherapy , guided imagery, etc) to build new skills and insights.
Maybe you have tried traditional talk therapy, yoga, or self-help apps but you haven't found that sense relief from stress, anxiety, depression or grief. Grounded in the use of creative art therapies, mindfulness, somatic awareness, and intuitive healing, we believe the steps towards clarity, growth, and empowerment are about much more than talking. We are constantly thinking, feeling, sensing, expressing, interpreting, and responding to daily experiences. Your sessions with us will holistically explore all of these levels of Self while gaining new skills to cope with stress, trauma, relationships, loss, or a new life change.

I've trained in Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy , EMDR, various energy therapies, transpersonal psychology, Shamanism, the connections between mind and body, and how to integrate the current neuroscience research in healing.
In today's world, it is easy to feel alone, even when surrounded by people. Between current life stressors and issues carried from our childhoods, life can feel overwhelming. Feelings can come up which are confusing, uncomfortable, or cause anxiety. Transitions and aging often bring about questions like "am I really happy?" or "who am I really?" Sometimes you just need a place where you can relax, explore, and be heard. Sometimes you need a place where you can integrate all that you are. And sometimes you need a skilled, established therapist to walk with you on your journey.

I also have training in hypnotherapy and experience working with compulsive sexual behavior and love addiction and have worked extensively with the LGBT community.
When you are feeling depressed or overwhelmed, you may feel that you have few options. You may feel even worse if you are drinking more than usual or engaged in other compulsive behaviors. I will help you see that you have choices and that you can start acting and thinking in ways that make your vision of a satisfying life a reality. I am solution-focused and although I believe psychotherapy is a process, I am comfortable working with a short-term model as well as in a more ongoing way. I believe in being direct while remaining empathic.

I incorporate a wide variety of holistic counseling techniques into traditional therapy including yet not limited to hypnotherapy , energy psychology, Reiki energy healing, sound healing, oracle readings, essential oils, crystals, and EFT.
You may want to make changes, yet feel beaten down by worry. A part of you may be aware that difficult experiences you’ve faced throughout your life could be connected to your current struggles. As an intuitive holistic counselor I believe we can change by healing from the inside out. What shows up in our outer life through negative thoughts, unwanted behaviors, body discomfort or difficult feelings can be a signal or sign we are ready for change. I believe the present symptoms or conditions give us clues to what is going on inside, possibly connected to past difficult experiences that need attention, understanding and healing.

I blend traditional talk therapy with heart-centered hypnotherapy , creative visualization, yoga, meditation, breath work, and structured group therapy.
We often find ourselves unable to move forward due to the enormity of the situations that are presented to us. We may feel stuck, tired, and at times, hopeless. So we armour ourselves to face the world. This armouring occurs in the form of addictions such as overeating; using drugs and alcohol; isolating and repeating patterns of toxic relationships. As a result our hearts become numb. We move through life with an armored exterior, fearful of experiencing our feelings and emotions. By creating a safe environment, I help unlock and release pain.

Despite what Thoreau says, we do not have to live lives of quiet desperation. Through mindfulness and hypnotherapy , you can find freedom from the negative thoughts and beliefs underlying the fear and anger, that is, the stress. I helped stressed out professionals find balance, freedom and joy. Often they try to manage their stress by having a drink, working out, or going out on the town. While these provide some relief, the problem is, they do not get to the source. One day the stress has taken over and there's little or no joy left.

You’ve been carrying the anxiety and pain for far too long. No one really knows what it's like to be you. It feels utterly lonely.

HypnoTherapy
Hypnotherapy is guided hypnosis, or a trance-like state of focus and concentration achieved with the help of a clinical hypnotherapist. This trance-like state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one's own thoughts or meditations. In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves that can help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their life.

Hypnotherapists in Chicago use hypnotherapy as an adjunct form of therapy. Hypnotherapy can be used to treat anxiety, phobias, substance abuse including tobacco, sexual dysfunction, undesirable spontaneous behaviors, and bad habits. It can also be used to help improve sleep, learning disorders, communication, and relationship issues.
