Not only have I successfully worked with many forms of depression, anxiety and grief, I've had training in marriage & group psychology, as well.
I like many different types of clients. However, the ones that are truly interested in change and growth are the ones that seem to find their way to health the most quickly. My clients create their own goals and, hopefully, gain hope and strength to move towards achieving them.

I work primarily with adolescents (ages 10-25), marriages, and men's issues. I currently supervise a team of therapists through Unbroken Family Counseling. I work within this team and, when necessary, work with schools, psychiatrists, and other community resources to help my clients. My ideal client is a teen who doesn't think he/she needs counseling, a marriage that is on the rocks, or a guy dealing with guy stuff (guys know what I'm talking about). If I cant help you I can help find someone who can.

Teaching and supervising in a marriage and family therapy training program challenges me to continually reflect on my work as a therapist.
For over 35 years I have worked with individuals, couples and families to solve problems, improve relationships and make life transitions. In this time I have learned to respect the uniqueness of each individual and family, as well as the abilities and courage they bring to the challenges they face. My approach is friendly, straightforward and solution-focused, but with appreciation for the variety and complexity of factors that may be involved with the issues that folks bring to therapy. I enjoy collaborating with clients to manage stress and modify the patterns of thinking, feeling and acting that concern them.

Currently I am pursuing a certification in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, one of the most effective forms of marital therapy used today.
By the time people call me, I know they have typically tried a number of solutions to the problems they are experiencing. I believe in the individuals and couples I see, and I work with them to help understand and identify the feelings and circumstances that are contributing to their repetitive struggles. We work together to find solutions, identify patterns and overcome the fears and obstacles that are holding them back from the freedom and intimacy in relationships that they are longing to achieve.

Ask yourself these three questions... 1) Am I happy? 2) Am I doing what's best for me? 3) Am I in control of my life? I believe that everyone should have the potential to answer yes to those questions and lead a less stressful life. My approach as a counselor is to be encouraging, supportive and collaborate; and help individuals who are struggling with depression, anxiety, marital issues and job stress. I help people to create positive and lasting change in their lives and aid them in achieving their personal goals. Assessments can be conducted in as little as one office visit.

What type of Downers Grove mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Downers Grove?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
