This past year was a doozy! If it has left you, or your teen feeling overwhelmed, anxious, less motivated and altogether out of sorts, you are not alone.
Therapy isn't just for people with "issues." Therapy is for people. Period. Therapy is a mirror that can help you see who you truly are, who you've been all along, and who you want to become. It's a place to experience unconditional acceptance, safety and non-judgement. Therapy is a map, a flashlight, or a navigation system that can help you find your way. Therapy rocks! I'm glad you're here, and I hope that I get the chance to help you or your child flip on that flashlight, hold up that mirror and enjoy this one wild and wonderful life we have. Contact me today to get started!

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.

I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and families who are struggling with a variety of issues, particularly related to trauma, anxiety, and loss. In my work, I focus on listening to the unique story of every child, whether the child communicates through words, play, art, or behaviors. Because I value the intrinsic insight and wisdom that parents often have about their child, I work collaboratively with parents to best support their child. My therapeutic approach is relational, with an emphasis on solving problems directly. I utilize evidence-based interventions focused on insight, the mind-body connection, and strengthening resiliencies.

People that are looking for professional mental health services come from all ethnicities, backgrounds, and walks of life. Some are in the twilight of their lives, while others are just getting started. Some need help with delicate relationship struggles, while others may find that they are searching for a diagnosis to help them finally make sense of things. Then there are those that are just looking for someone to talk to about what is going on in their lives. What you need to remember though, is that no matter what you are looking to get help with, you are not alone. The first step can be the hardest, but here you are!

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.
