I use an eclectic approach, working with the individual from a strengths-based perspective and employing techniques from CBT to explore the thoughts and emotions behind the problem, mindfulness -based approaches as well as other coping skills to help the individual cope and adjust, and assist the individual to empower themselves to work through challenges.
I see life as a journey of beauty and tragedy, ups and downs, mountains and valleys. If you are currently experiencing a tragedy, or a down, or a valley in your life, therapy is a useful tool to help you endure, grow, and make space for yourself and your thoughts and feelings. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW).

Some of the most common tools we might utilize include mindfulness exercises, cognitive-behavioral tools and strategies, body-based interventions, and the importance of humor as we seek light even in pain.
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 draw on techniques from Mindfulness , Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and psychotherapy.
I have found the heart of therapeutic work lies in meeting clients where they are and supporting individuals and couples as they identify what they already know to be true. I view every client through a strengths-based, trauma informed, and holistic lens. I know how trauma can hold us back from meeting life goals and want to work with you through this process.

My commitment to this work is ongoing, both personally and professionally. In my work with clients, I have focused on anxiety, depression, abuse, trauma, spiritual development, mind/body connection, chronic illness, relationship issues, and identity issues concerning race, gender, and sexuality.

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.

I approach therapy from a relational, integrative, and multicultural framework with skills grounded in mindfulness -based and evidenced-based approaches.
Hi, I'm Ezza and I'm so glad you're here. Life is hard as it is – that is a fact. Challenges may morph and change as we grow older, but our emotional experiences will always be a consistent reaction to our everyday instances. It's one of the ways human life is so colorful. As a therapist, my aim is to offer a safe space for clients to explore things in their life that may not be working well. I approach therapy from a collaborative process aimed at getting clients to notice, bring attention, and slow down when the world urges all of us to ignore, distract, and speed up.

I use a variety of approaches including Adlerian psychotherapy, positive psychology, and mindfulness techniques.
Do you question yourself about your relationships, your work or your life in general? Do these same questions come up for you over and over with ever increasing emotional distress or a feeling of low grade but chronic sadness? Do you yearn for a different experience and do your usual methods to regain your balance, direction, and sense of well-being work only sporadically or not at all? My wish for anyone experiencing this kind of pain and distress is to give therapy a chance to make that significant difference.

I incorporate strength-based, holistic and mindfulness principles as well as consider how cultural and societal factors impact physical and mental wellness.
Life is one continuous transition. We are constantly learning, growing, changing and evolving. I believe therapy is for everyone and we can all benefit from an unbiased perspective in our lives. Together, we'll learn to detach from difficult emotions, reframe negative beliefs and explore grounding techniques. I enjoy working with clients who are working through life transitions (specifically fertility, perinatal, postpartum and parenthood) and navigating interpersonal relationships. I also have a passion working with those questioning life's bigger questions, or trying to gain deeper understanding of self through a spiritual lens.

While I tailor my work with each client individually, my general approach to therapy is integrative, drawing on psychodynamic/relational, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness techniques.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and work with emerging adults and adults across the life span experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationship concerns, women's issues, stress, and self-esteem concerns, among many other difficulties. I believe people come to therapy for all kinds of reasons, often with a common theme of being stuck in some way. It is a privilege to guide people on a journey of becoming "unstuck," helping them cultivate a path of healing, wellness, growth and greater self-understanding.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Chicago with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Chicago can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Chicago MBCT therapists.
