I have a fun light hearted direct approach specializing in grief , depression, anxiety, addictions, and PTSD with individuals, couples and families.
Hello!! The right match between therapist and client can be one of the largest factors to therapeutic success. My view of the therapeutic relationship is that of a shared journey between client and therapist. I have been in private practice for eight years and I continue to be a "client" as well, which I believe gives me sensitivity and insights resulting in a non judging collaborative approach. I see therapy as an opportunity to use symptoms as a gateway to self discovery and growth, as a self actualizing process as we heal wounds, work through issues, and discover self potential.

I enjoy working with clients who are having difficulty dealing with anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress as well as clients who feel lost and are questioning the purpose of life. I like to help clients learn what their true values are and how to live in line with them. Clients who have expressed grief over their childhood but are struggling with validation of their feelings may say things like "but I was never hit". Emotional abuse and neglect have a profound effect on human development. I enjoy helping educate on what Complex PTSD is and how it has affected the nervous system and what clients can do to heal.

Life isn't always in our control (and no, I'm not a fan of that either). In therapy, we can learn to manage the things within our control - so that we are better equipped to contend with life’s inevitable ups and downs. Whether you're experiencing a big transition, stress from everyday life, a personal loss , or a severe mental illness - we can work together to make things easier. I have experience treating individuals with a variety of concerns or mental health diagnoses. I strive to make everyone - of any body shape/size, sexuality, gender, race, religion, or disability - comfortable in the therapy room (and in their own skins).

I enjoy working with people who want to create positive and lasting changes in their lives. Sometimes this is accomplished by simply talking through a confusing and stressful experience with a caring person in a safe place. Sometimes positive change is made by learning and using a new skill. There are times when you might want and/or need a deeper journey to get to know yourself better, your natural strengths and limitations, the source of your suffering, your desires and values, and perhaps your direction in life. I am comfortable working with people in any of these ways.

I believe therapy is an opportunity to create a new path toward living a meaningful life. Often struggles or hardships we experience push us into following old patterns that may not fit our values or how we want to effectively live our lives. It can also be space to understand how we can be more fulfilled or effective in our many roles. I specialize in treating trauma and whether the event happened a month ago, or 20 years ago, there are effective, evidence-based strategies we can use to grow beyond that harm. I also enjoy working with people in the areas of self-esteem, anxiety, attachment, relationships, & LGBTQIA+ issues.

“Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you”- Robin Sharma. Robin Sharma's words echo in many ways what occurs within the therapeutic relationship. When we invest in ourselves through the work we do in therapy, we are more likely to make decisions that impact us for the better. This not only improves our quality of life, but it enriches our interactions with others. The ideal client would be an individual who is aware they need change, but are not sure as to how to go about creating it for themselves.

Our life's work is helping clients achieve a better sense of self and happiness..more recently we've recognized that without good mental health providers this balance in life can be more difficult and stressful. However, through therapy our associates have our clients transform into the people they want to be. We see each client as an individual with many parts to their identity. Utilizing a holistic and systemic approach we help clients reintegrate the parts of themselves to function better as individuals and within their systems. Our focus tends toward a family systems based approach using behavior methods.

Connection. Healing. Joy. Meaning. Hope. This is what we long to experience. But sometimes the weight of our heartache, loneliness and confusion descends like a fog. We need a safe place to connect, to find clarity, to heal and create new ways of being and experiencing ourselves and others. We often seek therapy due to the pain and struggle experienced in both early and present relationships. And our greatest work in therapy is achieved through relationship. I will journey alongside you to bring healing and strength to broken places, discover your glory, and pursue a life of wholeness and freedom.

I, along with my wife, own and operate The Art of Living Counseling Center. We are focused on creating therapeutic environments where clients are invited deeper into their personal story for purposes of healing and empowerment. We use the dynamic metaphor of Story to help guide and organize the therapeutic process. Using this narrative approach, clients come to understand that they were given powerful stories that shaped and guided their development as a person. These stories impact one’s sense of self, relationships and family life. Therapy progresses as clients gain greater awareness of these inner storylines and their impact.

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 Crystal Lake grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Crystal Lake.
