Relationship transitions: beginning or ending a relationship or a marriage, coping with infidelity, empty nesting, coping with the death of a loved one.
I help adult individuals and couples through major life transitions for themselves, their relationships and their work. In therapy I help you understand what you are feeling, so you can come up with ways to better cope and problem-solve during challenging times, develop a stronger sense of identity, develop and exercise self-compassion, and develop insight into unhelpful patterns. In doing so, you can improve your psychological well-being, achieve your goals, and live a more fulfilling life. I believe you are the only expert in your own life, so my role is to help you discover the best way for you to navigate this transition.

Finding a therapist who really "gets you" is a crucial part of change. I work with individuals and couples who want a trusting and collaborative relationship . I work with clients with a wide range of concerns and from diverse cultures. I use a holistic and multicultural approach with every client, to better understand their unique experiences and provide treatment that is effective for them. I also focus therapy around helping white folks process their own positive racial identity (anti-racist) and find balance between speaking up and listening.

I believe the relationship we create is the most important piece to therapy.
You might look for individual therapy because you experience obstacles that happen again and again; you are trying to figure out who you are and what you want in life. You might be looking for couples therapy because you feel disconnected from your partner or have difficulty communicating; you fight or have difficulty with being intimate. You might be looking for family therapy because you don’t know how to connect with your kids; there is conflict in your family and you don’t know how to resolve it. You might be a person of color, immigrant or second generation and struggle with issues mentioned above.

I have 25 years of experience in the treatment of issues including: relationship struggles, postpartum depression and anxiety, low self-esteem, marital conflict, adolescent treatment and generalized anxiety and depression.
The therapists in our practice joined together because of our shared belief that our clients, who have reached out for help in managing and overcoming the challenges their lives, each have a unique set of strengths that often need to be better understood and developed. In our own styles, we each use the therapeutic relationship to understand what is interfering with an individual's sense of fulfillment in life. We approach therapy from the perspective that, at our core, our clients are health seeking but may be repeating old patterns that are not serving them well.

Therapy is a rich opportunity for gaining invaluable insights regarding the ways in which fears, disavowed wishes, and injustices from the past can motivate current behavior, and how individuals, often resiliently, continue to live above a rubble of neglected wounds. I believe the success of treatment is dependent upon the establishment of a solid therapeutic relationship and that the therapeutic alliance is a reciprocal "we- relationship " where healing and growth can occur. I also may incorporate more direct mindfulness-based cognitive-behavioral approaches in therapy when effective to promote symptomatic change.

I have found that many of the emotional and relational struggles that individuals face are a result of having undergone painful experiences, and having learned ways of coping or relating that become unhelpful and even self-defeating in later stages of life. Through the work of psychotherapy, one has an opportunity to explore, gain self-knowledge and awareness, shift patterns, and discover, or discover again how to engage in relationship , both with oneself and with others. It is in this space that healing and change can occur.

It takes courage to step into therapy and I am dedicated to creating a welcoming space where clients feel comfortable to fully be themselves. I believe the greatest tool in therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. It is important to me that each person who chooses to begin the therapeutic relationship feels seen, heard, and known.

Therapy can be a space to make sense of the past, make goals for the future, or problem-solve challenges as they arise. I use a strengths-based, solution-focused approach to help clients identify their needs and explore their potential. I believe as we turn our focus inward and ground ourselves, we find empowerment and clarity. The cornerstone of my practice is empathy for my clients, and I feel that change happens when there is a strong and supportive therapeutic relationship .

I deeply value the therapeutic relationship as it is a key ingredient to successful therapy.
Sometimes we do not know where our strengths lie. It is when we are in a room with an empathic person focusing on our needs and issues, we can then access our strengths and move forward. I firmly believe everyone has it in themselves to be self-aware and address elements that are causing disharmony in their lives. My goal is to offer clients a safe and nonjudgmental environment where they can freely express themselves and just be. My approach is collaborative based on mutual respect, kindness, and empathy. Encompassing a person centered style I focus on understanding you as an individual and helping you gain insight and flourish.

I specialize in helping clients work through relationship difficulties, overall "unhappiness" in life, and anxiety and depression issues.
PLEASE NOTE: I am not taking NEW referrals at this time. I provide individual therapy in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. I act as a guide and challenge you to explore what and why things may not be "working" in your life, as well as provide support and feedback to you about the patterns in your relationships. Finding a therapist who is a "good fit" for you can be difficult, so call me and we can discuss what you are looking for further.

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 Chicago relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Chicago.
