In June of 2023, I will reach forty years as a psychotherapist. I have practiced in the states of Ohio, Arizona, and currently in Illinois. I have worked with a wide range client population. My six specialties include adolescent and adult substance abuse, anger management, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and stress management. Other areas include all those stated in this profile. Moreover, I provide individual, couples counseling, family therapy, and group therapy. Making the decision to get counseling, can be a very anxiety provoking situation. Actually, taking the step to get counseling is an enormous strength!

Do you find it so difficult to focus that it interferes with your work, school, or relationships? Do you or your teen become easily distracted? Is it really hard to remain organized despite your best efforts? Inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity are three common problems associated with ADHD, which affects about 5% of people. It is much more serious than just having trouble concentrating. ADHD creates real difficulties for teens and college students at school, presents barriers to adults' success at work, and strains relationships between people with ADHD and those who care about them.

There are so many individuals and families that I enjoy working with. What I am most passionate about is working with individuals struggling to find peace with his/her/their body, food, and self-worth. This topic has been the focus of my training and professional life for nearly a decade. Working in higher levels of care has provided extensive training with emphasis on disordered eating and mood and anxiety diagnoses, as well as substance abuse. This training has helped to address patterns that often appear in family milieus and where shame often perpetuates the cycle of maladaptive behaviors.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 15 years of experience in mental health and wellness. My passion stems from wanting to help others learn new ways of coping with their environment and garnering new skills to help manage current life stressors and hurdles. My belief is that from early childhood we learn healthy, and sometimes unhealthy, strategies to manage challenges. Coping styles, especially maladaptive ones, work for a period of time, but may become ineffective. When this occurs, people often seek therapy. My job as a therapist is to help you learn, and implement, healthier coping strategies.

Coming to counseling is a brave and loving thing to do for yourself and others. I am passionate about working with couples and families. I focus on strengthening bonds by helping clients experience the benefits of non-reactive listening, creating appropriate boundaries, and understanding deeper needs. I utilize the Gottman Method when working with couples, and a relational approach to family therapy. I also enjoy working with individual clients, helping them gain self-understanding and compassion. If desired, a spiritual awareness that is respectful of every person's faith commitments can be incorporated into therapy.

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.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
