I’m trained in a variety of therapeutic styles, including psychodynamic, ACT , and cognitive behavioral approaches.
Asking for help isn't always easy, so I have tremendous respect for the courage and strength it takes to seek professional guidance. Working from the belief that change is always possible, I help my clients identify their strengths, what's getting in the way of making changes in their life, and the most effective ways to achieve their goals. My style of counseling is supportive and collaborative, with an emphasis on respect, encouragement, and hope.

Moreover, I have a holistic approach to therapy, and can pull from my vast work/life experiences and trainings which includes CBT, ACT , and Mindfulness to achieve the desired goal of my client.
As a culturally skilled LCPC and Professional School Counselor, I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families from all walks of life in a person-centered and collaborative environment. I believe that simply accepting that you have emotional needs that you require help with is half the battle won, and the other half is confronting them. It's my goal to work with my clients and give them the courage to address the challenges that face them - and to guide them on a path to happiness.

I will support you with the understanding that each of us is capable of transformation and healing if we're willing to be honest with ourselves, face our challenges, and act on what is important to us.
Most of us, at one point or another, feel stuck, are ready for a change, and realize we can't do it on our own. Although it isn't always easy, reaching out for help is one of the best things we can do to care for ourselves. My goal is to help you recognize and address past and present difficult situations that keep you stuck in unhealthy patterns, preventing you from being the best version of yourself. Focusing on your strengths and creativity,

I have a professional yet laid back approach using evidence-based treatments such as ACT and CBT therapies.
Are you struggling with anxiety, sadness, stress, trauma, relationship challenges? Feeling stuck? Times are more challenging now than ever before. I often hear people think their problems aren’t “big” enough for treatment, but these small issues can impact functioning and quality of life. Or, they feel so lost or shameful. Good news - therapy doesn't have to be a life long commitment. My clients are often in a transitional period of their life or having a harder time coping than usual. This is normal! You deserve this opportunity to de-stress and take care of your needs.

In child therapy I use the act of playing with toys as a way to connect with the children and make them feel comfortable.
Do you live in a constant state of anxiety? Are you experiencing feelings of depression that you have difficulty managing? I am experienced in helping people find solutions to manage their life in a more positive light. I believe that the connection the therapist makes with the client is vital. That connection allows the client to open up and express their concerns to the therapist, and together they can discover strategies for improvement. I help clients work on symptom reduction and help them achieve the goals they want in their lives by creating small, achievable steps.

I know how difficult it can be to take those first steps toward seeking out a therapist. Life can be challenging in many ways and can be difficult to navigate alone. I take great care in providing a safe and collaborative environment for my clients to explore their lives and various obstacles in a nonjudgmental and compassionate way. Some of the modalities I use include CBT, DBT, ACT , Psychoanalytic, and Internal Family Systems (IFS). Building a trusting relationship and witnessing each client's journey is what I find most fulfilling about my work as a therapist.

You don’t have to go through this alone. A meaningful life is always full of challenges, and sometimes we need a trusted guide for a difficult leg of the journey. When you make the brave decision to try therapy for yourself or your child, you deserve to feel safe, valued, and understood by your therapist. In an atmosphere of warmth, respect, and humor, we will navigate through struggles and celebrate healing together.

My ideal clients are individuals looking to improve their ability to handle stress and develop healthy coping skills. In this time of uncertainty, many individuals are experiencing burnout and the coping skills that used to help are no longer available or effective. I understand that feeling heard is important and I also really enjoy helping people feel empowered to handle their current challenges. I combine the use of evidence based interventions (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness) with a warm and accepting approach to help you get the results you need.

I believe that therapy can be the key to unlocking your higher potential, regardless of where you are at in life. Human beings have incredible capabilities and strength but that can be difficult to discover on your own whilst facing life’s many challenges. I work with clients who experience anxiety, depression, ADHD, obsessive/compulsive behaviors, addiction, interpersonal/relationship issues, trauma and more. I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy with a focus on the therapeutic relationship so that we can focus on who you are, what you need and what you want in a flexible and compassionate manner.

We all go through adverse life experiences that can take a toll on our emotional well-being. The stress of the past can sometimes end up following us and continuing to drive how we feel and the decisions we make. However, these hardships that we go through do not have to end up hindering our functioning and stagnating our growth. I also specialize in depression, self-esteem, anxiety, women and cultural issues. I have expertise in working with individuals who have experienced physical, emotional and/or sexual trauma or neglect during their childhood.

When life is challenging it can be hard to know what to do or where to turn to. You feel worried, angry, or sad. You don't think you're "good enough." It's hard to get things done. You can't let loose and fully enjoy life. You might be struggling with an addiction. You aren't where you thought you'd be at this point in time and you know you’re capable of so much more. You want fulfillment, success, fun, money, and love. I can help. I am a collaborative, caring therapist. Together we will identify your needs and learn to take action to overcome obstacles and achieve your goals to make your life happy, comfortable, and meaningful.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment Therapy have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Lombard will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
