Anxiety "likes a plan" - my clients know this phrase well and we use this to develop an understanding of how the brain & body work, practice strategies for anxiety reduction and identify a path to balance, joy & peace. As a former Big 10 athlete, I am hard working and dedicated to my clients in counseling children, adolescents, adults and parents. I provide a supportive and safe environment with education about neuroscience, self-compassion, meditation and self-care.

My outlook on life is that we are all on a journey. Some people move faster than others. Some need a helping hand along the way; but we can all arrive to where we are going, where we want to be…every single one of us. I am here to help motivate when you lack motivation. I am here to listen when you feel unheard. I am here to push when you feel weak, or pull when you don’t feel strong enough. I’m also here to sit with you when you aren’t ready or feel unable to make a decision. I am here at your pace.

I believe individuals manage the best they can, but these efforts do not always naturally translate to happiness or self-fulfillment. Oftentimes, situations cause us pain and in response, we spend considerable energy safeguarding our vulnerabilities at the expense of our well-being. Managing emotional distress alone can feel overwhelming, which is why we often need help from a sensitive, knowledgeable professional.

One of the most difficult things for a person to accept is that they or their child needs the help of a therapist. Seeking the help of a therapist for oneself or their child is a very courageous thing to do and is a sign of great internal strength and the willingness to change. Together we will explore the presenting problem and how it has affected you in the past and how it is affecting you today. We will also work to change this problem, situation or behavior so you can move to the future you desire. I draw from many different theories/approaches in our work together. In working with children, I work individually with the child and with the family.

There may be disappointments, unresolved losses, and pain showing up as hopelessness, distress, chronic pain, headaches or low-level depression.

I believe that therapy can assist clients with a variety of challenges whether related to a diagnosed mental illness, life transition, relationship, or other. There are many things that can interfere with a feeling of satisfaction or fulfillment in one's life. In my work, I aim to help clients uncover and better navigate these barriers by first understanding their goals and getting to know the whole person. I then utilize evidence-based treatment to assist clients with developing a plan for meeting their personal, professional, and relational needs.

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.
