The process of therapy is a highly personalized journey, and I approach the therapy relationship from an open and collaborative perspective. I predominantly utilize interpersonal, mindfulness, and family systems theories to inform my clinical work. My commitment is to actively listen; to witness your journey; to learn about your worldview and experiences; and to provide support on your path towards insight, growth, and self-fulfillment.

When working with clients, I take a holistic and relational approach to therapy, meaning that I value the relationship in and of itself, just as much as the progress made in therapy.
Are you feeling stuck, alone, or overwhelmed? Are you distressed by emotions of sadness, anxiety, or loneliness? Are you feeling unsupported or lost in your current relationship ? I aim to provide a safe space to release your thoughts, process your emotions and behaviors, and heal. For whatever reason, you ended up here—and I am so glad you did! I'm here to help you by providing a warm and welcoming environment for you to be your most authentic you. I provide couples and family counseling, as well as individual psychotherapy.

Your once amazing relationship feels so hard but it doesn’t have to be. You have a deep desire to be your best self for you and your partner but it feels like regardless of your best efforts you continue to struggle. It used to feel so easy but you now find yourself on edge and agitated more often than not. When you try to share your feelings they often come out wrong or your partner just doesn’t get it which leaves you wishing you hadn’t said anything at all. It’s getting harder to engage on the smallest things.

My focus includes, but not limited to, working with clients suffering from addictions, mood disorders, and relationship issues .
On the journey towards mental well-being, everyone needs a little help sometimes. You deserve a private, comfortable, non-judgmental space to focus on yourself. Therapy is a collaborative process. You should be informed and involved throughout its entirety. With a direct, while empathetic and supportive style, we are able to work towards achieving your goals and increasing confidence.

Your relationship is unraveling before you. You never imagined things could get this bad or that you would ever deal with such painful issues. You’re feeling invalidated, misunderstood, confused, hurt, and angry on a regular basis. All you want is to be happy again. You find yourself doubting the relationship and yourself on a regular basis. You've even considered what it would be like if you weren't together anymore. Other times you want to do everything you can to fix the problems but your efforts just aren't getting you the long term results you want. Your head is constantly spinning. Things were supposed to be different.

We will take time to understand how the relationship has gone from where you started out to where you find yourself now.
I welcome you to my practice site. If you are here at this site I make the assumption that you are secure enough to know that you deserve to feel better and have good relationships. With a comfortable match up of therapist and client, both of us work towards understanding the challenges you face, getting some clarity about what can be changed, and learning how to take action. Getting comfortable involves feeling listened to and understood by me and developing trust that I will be knowledgeable about your subject and I will be supportive and non judgmental in this therapeutic relationship .

Trust is something that is earned, and a part of why I view the client-therapist relationship as the most important part of the process.
Starting this process can be overwhelming. Having to meet with a total stranger and talk about your life? Let's bridge the gap by having conversations about what is on your mind in the here and now, and not seem like an interrogation on a Law & Order episode. Whether you’re a parent of a child who is having difficulty with getting back into school, struggling in your relationships with your communication or assertiveness, or just a guy who needs to talk about guy stuff, reach out to me, I am your therapist.

You have a right to have a passionate and fulfilling relationship . You may not be sure if it’s their fault or yours but you do know that you miss feeling that spark. You feel frustrated that your needs go unmet or that you are constantly being nagged to meet your partners. The resentment is invading every area of your life together. Communication has broken down, you’re constantly irritated and snippy. You can’t remember the last time you had fun together, let alone had great sex. You know there has to be more to life than this. You want to feel connected, energized and satisfied. You dream of being desired and wanted again.

I am also certified in the field of addictions and can help you sort out whether or not you want to make any changes in your relationship to substances or other process habits or behaviors.
Do you feel stuck and hear yourself saying things like "I've always been this way, it's too late"; "I can't say no"; "There's something wrong with me"; "They'll think I'm selfish"? Together we'll look at beliefs that may be preventing you from experiencing the life you want. I serve as a guide, helping you to clarify your values and goals, identify barriers, and maximize your strengths. You'll practice the skills of observing and accepting yourself, while generating options and making decisions in line with your values and what matters most to you.

Relationship Issues are one of my Specialties.
We all find ourselves at times in our life that we require nurturance to help us through life's changes. Loss in our lives requires care and guidance by a professional. Loss may be defined in various ways, it may be death, divorce, depression, addictions, infidelity, anxiety, infertility just to name a few. I work to specifically assist individuals, couples, families and groups to alleviate emotional disorders, to understand conscious and unconscious motivation, to resolve emotional, relationship and attitudinal conflicts and to help modify behaviors that interfere with effective emotional, social adaptive, and intellectual functioning.

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 Downers Grove relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Downers Grove.
