Working with me in my private practice you can expect a real partner : grace time at the end of sessions, between-session coaching, and a therapeutic relationship that goes beyond the therapy hour.
Have you been thinking that it’s time to finally stop running away from your problems, but you’re not sure how? Avoidance, anxiety, drinking, drugs, constantly working…you know they’re not the real answer, but you’ve felt like you haven’t had any other choice. You want to live a life without shame and guilt, where you can find peace of mind without hurting yourself or the people you love. I have dedicated my career to supporting those making this journey - I understand what comes next, and we'll work together through the tough choices and challenges ahead.

Not all counselors have the expertise in working with couples in distress.
Relationships are challenging in the best of times. Does the challenge feel like it is more than you can handle on your own? Do you worry that your relationship won't make it and that you'll be alone or have to start all over again? You may wonder if having a solid connection with someone supportive by your side is even possible. I can help you learn ways to improve communication and show you how to reconnect with your partner so that you feel more secure in times of need and gain confidence that your partner will be there for you when you need them most.

When necessary, and with client's permission, I collaborate with all healthcare professionals to create a 'think tank' approach to treatment.

What type of Lake Forest 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 Forest?
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.
