I am passionate about helping others overcome stuck behavior and thought patterns that stand in the way of personal happiness, freedom, and joy. I specialize in helping overcome trauma, codependency or narcissistic abuse. The methods I use reroute neural pathways that cause unwanted thoughts and behaviors. This results in mind/body integration and resolution of hurtful or traumatic incidences that you have experienced. You are able to finally move on in your life. I also offer spiritual guidance that leads to deeper understanding of one's purpose in life.

I take pride in assisting families with children who are experiencing mood disturbances or having behavioral struggles at home and school. I have years of experience engaging with a diverse youth population with a variety of emotional and behavioral problems, including but not limited to autism, ADHD, defiance (ODD), antisocial behavior (CD and homicidality), and suicidality. Often times, families and youth that are struggling are in need of special attention and instruction that I as a professional offer.

“Never give up on someone with a mental illness. When “I” is replaced by “We”, illness becomes wellness” Shannon L Alder. The stress from everyday life can be overwhelming for people of any age, and it can come from a surprising number of sources. Prolonged stress can lead to depression and anxiety, and we may not be sure where it’s coming from or what to do about it. If you are feeling hesitant about starting therapy, know that asking for help is a sign of strength and not weakness.

When facing a stressful life experience or traumatic event that is causing significant emotional distress, you may realize that working through it alone or talking with family and friends isn't enough to bring relief. Calling a professional dedicated to helping you understand and develop healthy coping skills is often the most difficult, but necessary step to finding relief, emotional growth and healing.

Making the first move to get therapy is the hardest part. But, over my 25-year span as a counselor, I have never met anyone who wasn't glad they took that first step! Life can be overwhelming and you may even feel like you have the answers, yet still aren't feeling better. Often the voice of an experienced professional is what it takes to put those answers into action. I will approach our sessions drawing from CBT, DBT and Emotionally Focused therapies. I am goal-oriented and client-centered. I want you to leave therapy with the answers and changes that you came in looking for.

Pursuing therapy can be a challenging and hard decision. We are hardwired to feel that seeking help means we are broken, weak, or something is wrong with us. Yet, we are human and we face unexpected challenges daily, whether it is work stress, a child who we love but also get overwhelmed with, difficulties within relationships, grief, medical diagnoses, or questioning our role in life. The list is endless of the challenges we face. Emotions are signaling to us that something is off in our lives. A way towards feeling better is to feel heard, understood, and supported.

Sometimes something isn’t working, sometimes it feels like nothing is working. Often, just the alarm going off in the morning becomes enough. There are times where daily tasks can seem daunting or impossible. The sheer thought of having to getting out of bed, a day full of activities, or even engage in a simple conversation can become overwhelming—I get it. Sometimes our problems can make us feel stuck, but one of the most powerful things we can do in life is learn to combat them so that we can continue writing and understanding our own stories.

Making the decision to engage in therapy is the first step towards individual and familial healing and transformation. So many of us deal with overwhelm and burnout from the many demands of our daily lives. Not to mention longer term underlying conditions like strained family dynamics, unhealed trauma, anxiety, depression, and medical conditions. When life is tough, it is very common to feel isolated and hopeless that things will ever get "better."

I seek clients who are open to discovering their story and how it led them to their current circumstance. I am best able to nurture a relationship with a client who is aware of their reason for seeking support and is comfortable with a direct perspective to realizing their goals. My approach to working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families is centered on the philosophy that we are experiencing components of our personal story daily. When we conclude a chapter, it can impact the next chapter. By understanding our experiences and crafting our next steps, we can shape our story.

What type of Lisle 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Lisle?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
