I am currently accepting new clients! I have found the heart of therapeutic work lies in meeting clients where they are and supporting individuals as they identify what they already know to be true. I view every client through a strengths-based, trauma informed, and holistic lens. I believe in a compassionate, integrative approach to managing life's challenges and overwhelm with a focus on mindfulness-based work. I also strongly believe in healing by integrating the cognitive, physical and spiritual elements of the self.

The thought may be that therapy should always be creating forward progress, the pace of each person's therapy journey should be suited to the individual.

When we experience emotional pain, our attention can become very narrow and we tend to focus on all that is going wrong. This is more so when that emotional pain has its roots in trauma. It becomes even harder to widen our lens to access strength and recovery. As a trauma-focused therapist, I’ve devoted my career to helping others find their pathway to healing from childhood adversity, sexual abuse, physical and emotional abuse, and substance use issues. I use evidence-based practices to help manage anxiety, reduce stress, gain self-confidence, improve relationships, and cope with the ongoing difficulties of life.

What type of Elmhurst 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 Elmhurst?
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.
