I am certified to work with women dealing with Postpartum Depression or Anxiety, and women who are still pregnant that are depressed and/or anxious.
If you are a woman and: Not feeling like yourself? Not feeling like you want to feel? Stressed with life (or certain aspects of life)? If your relationship (with a significant other, family member or friend) is not going the way you want it to? If your feeling anxious or depressed? If you are facing a life adjustment? Many people think, no one will understand or that it isn't important or serious enough to see a therapist. They are wrong. It always helps to talk.You don't have to deal with it alone.

I specialize in working with women who work really hard to make sure everything looks okay on the outside when it doesn’t feel that way on the inside. Clients who come to me are often overwhelmed with pressure to get things perfect and struggle with feeling “enough”, some experiencing imposter syndrome. They often feel an imbalance in their lives and are quick to sacrifice self-care for others or in the face of stress. They feel their emotions strongly and sometimes feel controlled by them, leaving them often emotionally and physically drained. My clients are ready to create change in their lives & feel more peace of mind.

Do you feel that aspects of your life are out of control and unmanageable? Maybe you are noticing a pattern of avoiding people or places you once loved, or a sudden change in appetite, energy, or drive. Or maybe you know something is “off” and can’t quite put your finger on what is missing. The first step to change and healing is sometimes an overwhelming task. It takes a lot of courage to say, “it’s time to do something differently”.

Shaquille O'Neal says, "Dr. Lombardo is my head coach for happiness." Every truly great athlete gets coached in not only physical skills but also the mental side of their sport. Why? Because it helps take them to the next level. Whether it is improving confidence, coping with the pressures of competition, managing emotions, increasing your chance of being recruited, dealing with setbacks/errors or recovering from an injury, sports psychology can help you enhance your performance.

Hello, and welcome to my page! I work with people who have a wide variety of conditions stemming from relational and environmental stress. I believe that we are naturally programmed to heal, but often we rely on past coping skills that are no longer functional, and this blocks the path to healing. I think every symptom once served a purpose and that change can occur by looking at how and why these symptoms developed, while at the same time trying new behaviors.

At times in our lives, we may be presented with challenges in which we may need professional assistance to assist in overcoming those challenges. The first and perhaps the hardest step is asking for help. Choosing to see a therapist can be anxiety-provoking and I believe that it's crucial to establish an objective and supportive working relationship with clients to help them achieve their goals.

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.
