I am grounded in a Client-Centered approach and skillfully integrate: Psychodynamic, Attachment, Motivational Interviewing, DBT , CBT, and mindfulness skills.
“This shouldn’t be happening to me”. “Why can’t I feel better”? “I shouldn’t be struggling as much as I am right now”. If you’ve ever said any of these things, you’re in good company. I view my role as a therapist to walk alongside my clients in their journey towards emotional wellness and to provide nonjudgmental reflections while working together to change problematic patterns of behavior and heal pain points in their lives. The reality is, when we’re in the depths of our pain, losses, and struggles, we can’t always see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am here to be on your team to help you find the way out.

I believe in treating the whole person, with individualized strategies using CBT, DBT , mindfulness, and trauma related therapies.
Being well is important to face life's challenges which often change how we see ourselves, others, and our connection to the world around us. It can feel overwhelming, whether you are making intentional, positive changes in your life, or dealing with unexpected or unwanted events. We all need support with these changes through healing relationships of many forms - friends, family, partners, teachers, spiritual mentors, pets and therapists. I provide mindful and compassionate counseling for those seeking wellness, emotional growth and support through challenges and changes in life.

Most common practices include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Psycho-dynamic Therapy and Strengths Based.
My favorite part about being a clinician is witnessing that moment when a person realizes their own power for change. My intent as a therapist is to help make your journey for change possible. I have a passion for helping people understand that symptoms of depression, anxiety and other disorders are only a part of who we are. They do not define us. I have made it my mission to help people learn to work with and co-exist with their symptoms in a healthy way, allowing for a better quality of life.

I'm excited to say that I recently added EMDR to my therapist toolbox! In addition to the "classic" CBT, DBT and Motivational Interviewing, I decided that my practice with clients needed an upgrade and EMDR is an experience I am pleased to offer my clients that struggle with trauma, addictions or are just feeling "stuck" with traditional talk therapy. EMDR is a method of therapy that strengthens my desire to meet clients where they are at and work on the issues my client wants to address.

I am committed to helping people through creating a judgment free understanding of individuals and their unique life experiences, while integrating mindfulness-based, dialectical behavior therapyand cognitive behavioral therapy techniques.
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and use a strengths-based approach to therapy. I believe that the healing power of an empathic relationship provides a safe space for an individual to safely explore their values and the ways in which they make meaning out of their experiences and interact with the world. It is within this exploration that individuals can begin to dislodge from stuck patterns and make choices that are in line with their values so they can live out their life in an intentional way.

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.

You are stronger, braver, and more resilient then your mind gives you credit for; but sometimes those thoughts and feelings can overwhelm us to the point where we lose ourselves and the things and people we value most. As a therapist, my goal is to allow you to see your emotions and thoughts as just that and to reestablish the connection between your unique and individual values and the behaviors that support these. We as humans are all susceptible to emotional pain, but how we deal with this pain- be it the pain of change, loss, or inexplicable anxiety and hopelessness- can define whether we evolve from these or stay stuck in it.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT) Therapists
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is the treatment most closely associated with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Therapists practice DBT in both individual and group sessions. The therapy combines elements of CBT to help with regulating emotion through distress tolerance and mindfulness. The goal of Dialectical Behavior Therapy is to alleviate the intense emotional pain associated with BPD. Its core assumption is that change and acceptance are intertwined. We typically think of our efforts to change things as emerging out of non-acceptance. We either decide to accept things as they are or we seek to change: through DBT it's not a case of change or acceptance, but resolving the conflicts to allow for self-acceptance and constructive change.

If you're looking for DBT therapy in Lombard or for a Lombard DBT therapist these professionals provide dialectical behavior therapy, DBT group therapy, DBT therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy (which is a common misspelling) and dialectical therapy. They provide dialectical counseling, DBT counseling in Lombard and DBT treatment. They include DBT groups, DBT therapists, DBT psychologists and DBT counseling.
