Currently I specialize in Trauma in adults and adolescents as a Certified Trauma Treatment Professional. For 20 years I specialized in divorce issues, both in families with high amounts of conflict and custody disagreements and provide support during this difficult transition. In addition, I have a strong background in Attachment, and I specialize in Attachment issues in children and adults and address the various challenges clients face in their current relationships. I use EMDR when appropriate as well as myriad Neuropsychological interventions to allow clients to process and free themselves from the cycle of Trauma memories.

After the last few years, most of us need a safe space to feel heard and understood. My therapeutic style is gentle and deeply client-centered, creating an experience of rest for clients who find themselves feeling lost in the chaos of our world. I will use an eclectic blend of talk therapy, Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, DBT and Internal Family Systems to assist you with discovering and achieving your goals for treatment. Because I have my own trauma history, I can connect well with those who find themselves still affected by past events that they wish would stop intruding on their present.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Glen Ellyn and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
