I specialize in supporting individuals who have endured trauma ; individuals navigating identity development and/or life transitions, and those with relational struggles or dissatisfaction, mood or anxiety difficulties, or who view themselves as having a "chaotic" background.
Welcome! I'm Dr. Doyle, a clinical psychologist working with adolescents and adults in the Chicagoland area. I view therapy as a unique opportunity for individuals to access their own resilience and develop increasingly satisfying relationships with themselves, their past experiences, their personal potentials, and others in their life and community. I believe a trusting, authentic relationship built on a holistic appreciation of each unique person is essential to therapeutic growth. Accordingly, I use an integrated approach to therapy that is individualized, strength-based, and collaborative. You'll find me to be warm, engaged, and challenging as needed.

With specializations in perinatal mental health, insecure attachment, anxiety, and trauma , our treatment course can help you realize all the answers you’ve ever needed come from within you.

The clients that I have had the most experience with are those that have experienced trauma at some point in their lives. They are coming in because they are ready to begin the healing process. It's important for clients to see and feel what it's like to have a supportive person in their life. They also need someone who believes them and will not question their story. Clients often seek help to manage their triggers, nightmares, learn better coping skills, and many other things. They would also like to eventually get to a place where they don't blame themselves for what happened. They want to live a happier life.

The trauma -informed therapy I offer begins with validation for clients' choices that have sustained them to get to my office.
Clients come to me and receive compassionate care without negative judgment as a means to make meaning of the events of their lives. That new understanding, gained in a supportive coaching relationship with the therapist, becomes the foundation for positive change. Open and self-aware clients tend to want validation of their thoughts and challenges to what hasn't worked. Skeptical clients tend to desire safety and assurance that someone is on their side. Regardless of the category, clients tend to get what they need from one session to the next.

My approach is anti-oppressive, trauma -informed, uses mindfulness, and is psychodynamic-relational.
I believe that all people have dignity, worth, and the right to live life in a way that brings them joy. Our ability to live joyfully can be limited due to imbalances of power in our world (racism, sexism, homophobia). Because of this we often suffer, and suffering left unaddressed can lead to limiting beliefs and behaviors. These behaviors are usually adopted as a matter of necessity to survive, yet they can keep us from being the most authentic and happy version of ourselves. The therapeutic relationship can heal and transform our lives through affirmation, validation and sustained attention on our thoughts, beliefs and behaviors.

I specialize in supporting young adults in overcoming anxiety, perfectionism and trauma -related issues.
On the outside you have it together, but on the inside you’re overthinking, feeling anxious and disconnected. Being a perfectionist has helped you succeed academically or in your career. People have admired you for being helpful, independent and driven. Yet, underneath the pristine surface you’ve managed to keep intact over the years, you feel disconnected, worried and insecure. We'll identify the "whys", practical strategies to help you manage day-to-day, and move towards the deeper work to create long-lasting peace, balance and meaning. Through the process, you will develop a healthier relationship with yourself and others.

I have experienced my fair share of trauma , & I have seen firsthand how relationships can hurt but also how they can heal evident by my own experience in therapy.
I recognize the uniqueness of each person, couple, adolescent, and family. It is my goal to provide a safe and nurturing environment where one’s true self is free to be expressed. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship which can be curative in itself, which is why it is important to me to bring my most genuine self in order to have an authentic experience in session with my clients. Once the foundation has been set, I build on that relationship and incorporate counseling skills and techniques to gently guide and challenge my clients to help them to meet their therapeutic goals.

Are you feeling down, or experiencing negative thoughts? Do you struggle to find a sense of calm? Therapy can help. Are you dealing with relationship difficulties, struggles to balance career and personal life, grief, loss or trauma , adapting to health problems, or searching for personal meaning in life? Sorting out and talking through these issues, along with developing adaptive coping strategies can make a positive difference. As the therapeutic process develops, you may also explore your personal history in relation to current stressors, and develop a greater sense of self understanding and discover ways you want to tweak some "old ways of doing things."

I have received extensive training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Anxiety Disorders (CBT), Trauma -Focused CBT, Exposure and Response-Prevention (ERP), and Mindfulness-Based Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Attachment Therapy, and Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy.
We are all weaving together the stories of who we are in order to make sense of life...My name is Camila, and I love to witness the beauty of inner healing that happens naturally as clients explore their own narratives. In my work, I utilize an empathetic, culturally sensitive, and trauma -informed perspective. Origem Psychotherapy was created with a belief that healing and growth happen as we deconstruct the unhelpful parts of your story and connect to its many origins, so that you can begin to live as your most authentic self.

I support adults facing anxiety, depression, disturbing memories, grief, break-ups, work-related stress, ADHD, and trauma . I focus on helping all adults, specifically marginalized individuals, to navigate through their life story to identify thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that no longer serve them. I assist clients who want to change these negative beliefs into beliefs that are more valid and useful. Examples include: “I should have done something” to “I did the best I could” or “I am not enough” to “I am okay as I am” or “I am not in control” to “I now have choices” or “I cannot trust anyone” to “I can choose whom to trust".
