I offer comprehensive psychological evaluations for children, adolescents, and adults as the primary focus of my practice. I believe in using well researched methods of assessment, restricting their interpretation to the scope for which they were designed and in providing well constructed, detailed and informative conclusions and feedback designed to help guide the client with succinct and thoughtful recommendations generated from the evaluation. I chose to maintain a small therapy practice in addition to my primary evaluation focus working with children and adults experiencing challenges with mood, anxiety, and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders.

Struggling is a normal part of our lives, and yet many of us try and ignore the emotional pain, and discomfort. One might try and normalize, "it's just a little anxiety" or maybe minimize, "I'm not THAT unstable, I don't need help". The truth is we all need support throughout our life time. I have experience working with children, teens, and adults. I have worked with clients struggling with; depression, anxiety, self-harm, eating disorders, low self-esteem, OCD, and those who have a diagnosis of Autism.

I want to commend you for your bravery in taking the first step towards reaching out for help. Counseling can give you a non-judgmental place to vent as well as a place to learn about new ways to manage overwhelming feelings. As a therapist, my main way of understanding how people work is through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It can help us challenge our negative thoughts and utilize healthy coping skills. I primarily take a humanistic approach with my clients and make sure to address psychosocial, biological, developmental, spiritual, and cultural issues as needed since every client is unique.

What type of Lake Bluff 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Lake Bluff?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
