I am committed to helping people through creating a judgment free understanding of individuals and their unique life experiences, while integrating mindfulness-based, dialectical behavior therapyand cognitive behavioral therapy techniques.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and use a strengths-based approach to therapy. I believe that the healing power of an empathic relationship provides a safe space for an individual to safely explore their values and the ways in which they make meaning out of their experiences and interact with the world. It is within this exploration that individuals can begin to dislodge from stuck patterns and make choices that are in line with their values so they can live out their life in an intentional way.

Everyone deserves to be accepted, appreciated and acknowledged. When stress overcomes, we often forgot how deserving we are of these essential needs.

I am here to support you through these transitions, while supplying you a space to call your own. I adapt my approach to best fit your needs whether its through building skills, processing, life planning or simply being your empathetic support!

I'm excited to say that I recently added EMDR to my therapist toolbox! In addition to the "classic" CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing, I decided that my practice with clients needed an upgrade and EMDR is an experience I am pleased to offer my clients that struggle with trauma, addictions or are just feeling "stuck" with traditional talk therapy. EMDR is a method of therapy that strengthens my desire to meet clients where they are at and work on the issues my client wants to address.

Operating from an attachment perspective, I use a variety of therapeutic modalities in my work with clients including, but not limited to, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy ( DBT ), and Internal Family Systems (IFS), and I tailor interventions to meet your specific needs.
My passion is understanding stored childhood trauma and the long-term effects it can have on adults; particularly as it relates to addiction issues. Unresolved traumatic experiences very often render a person with feelings of anxiety and depression; particularly for those who were never given the appropriate tools and support to process their trauma. These emotional states can lead to poor coping skills in our efforts to meet life’s challenges, and very often anxiety and depression can lead us to feeling incapable of helping ourselves or ever changing our circumstances and clearly seeing our potential.

CBT, ACT, DBT , Solution-Focused Therapy, and/or Motivational Interviewing have been highly beneficial for helping clients.
Feeling stuck? Trying to get back the focus, direction, and passion in life? In an environment free of judgment and rich in support, I believe it is important to utilize my client’s strengths to help empower the change process. By identifying values and specific goals, together we create a path to lead us in the desired direction. With my background in the education field, I have seen how children, as well as, adults struggle with the routine of the day when there is something heavy on their mind. I strive to help my clients identify how to remove this heaviness, and lead the life they have been wanting.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT) Therapists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Therapists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Glen Ellyn or for a Glen Ellyn DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Glen Ellyn and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
