I am here to help you with what you need right now. This includes if you are struggling with current life situations, stressors at work/school, or problems with managing your emotions, like anxiety , depression, or anger. I am passionate about what I do, and I love working with clients to help them achieve their goals in life. My type of therapy adjusts to what you need. This can mean that I do a more relaxed style of session where we are just talking about what is going on and problem solving in the moment or if that does not work for you, I can also do a more structured approach, that focuses on skills and coping strategies.

Feeling stuck in a web of stress, frustration, anxiety , hurt, depression, and loneliness can be difficult and unsettling. Like a gas gauge, it is important to identify what empties us and what fuels us. With understanding, knowledge, and humor, I assist my clients in identifying what empties them, such as stresses, worries, roadblocks, and other means of "stuck-ness." We also explore what fuels us and fills us, such as change, self-care, acceptance, balance, empowerment, and new beginnings.

Issues like, anxiety , depression, addiction, trauma, and abuse can all sound scary, but speaking with a therapist is the best thing you can do to embrace new perspectives and take positive steps toward change.
Have you been feeling more anxious, trouble sleeping, withdrawing from loved ones, allowing fear to overshadow facts, or perhaps you’re afraid to take steps toward change? You don’t need many reasons to start therapy, and you definitely don’t have to figure it out on your own. I'm dedicated to helping people navigate life’s challenges, and I’m passionate about helping individuals grow within themselves. In doing this, I’ve had the opportunity to work with people from all different backgrounds. This has helped me understand the importance of providing a culturally sensitive and supportive space for you to be authenetic.

I have over 10 years of clinical experience working with youth/families in crisis, who have experienced significant trauma and broken family dynamics; helping adolescents and young adults navigate through challenging transitions, while strengthening their voice and identity; and individuals struggling with depression, anxiety , and family dynamics.
Life can be very challenging at times. Whether it is due to unexpected circumstances, life transitions, losses, uncertainties, etc. How this may look for a person, may look very different for someone else. I appreciate the opportunity to work through these challenging times with individuals, to help them feel “unstuck,” empowered, confident, and to have a voice. Life is definitely a journey! And I am thankful for the privilege I have to help people find their way to thrive and to live their lives as best as they can.

I've worked in addiction treatment centers since 2017 and have experience helping people with anxiety , depression, and many other issues.
Are you felling lonely, anxious, or depressed? Have you been in a “funk” and can’t find a way out? Do you feel uncomfortable in your own skin? You're not alone! Often, we settle for known or understood pain because the alternative seems impossible or frightening. Successful therapy results in finding the solutions within ourselves for a better, happier life. The best way to achieve this relies on the quality of the relationship between the client and the therapist. I meet my client's where they're at and talk to them like people and not "patients."

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Downers Grove anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Downers Grove.
