Believing that we...ourselves are responsible for our own lives...No matter what comes our way...We have a choice as to how we will respond to the situation that will be in our own best interests...at all times. Working together as a team, you will be assisted in choosing the best 'interest' for you, and how you can work toward achieving this goal. Being mindful that you have the power within to choose, work toward and achieve any goal you create and accomplish. "Have the courage to be imperfect!" ~~~ Alfred Adler

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, my emphasis is meeting clients where they are and providing the type of support to assist them with overcoming challenges that have led to negative experiences. For the past 18 years, I have worked with children and their families to seek solutions to social, behavioral, and emotional issues that impact the home and school environment. One of my primary goals is to equip children and their parents with the tools needed to be successful in any situation or environment. Learning the strategies/tools to build strong, mutually respectful relationships is an area of value where I like to focus.

Are you struggling to navigate a world designed for neurotypicals? Impulse control, forgetfulness and sensory issues can often impact the ability to fully engage in school, the workplace or our relationships. Do these issues affect your sense of self and self-acceptance? Perhaps you have a child, sibling, or partner who is neurodivergent. Often it can be a struggle to understand their unique needs resulting in increased stress and often an inability to connect with loved ones. Ever ask yourself, “How do I do this?” If any of this resonates with you, you are not alone.

“Easier” doesn’t always mean “better”. It can feel “easier” to distract ourselves. It can feel “easier” to run on autopilot. It can feel “easier” to ignore our emotions. But does it really make us feel “better”? Our clients come to us to help integrate trauma, resolve anxiety and offer a safe space to process grief.

I hope to assist people to bring about choice and empowerment that they may feel is not possible. Life can be difficult but help is out there and available. I do tend to take a reality based and person centered approach within my sessions, however every person is an individual and therefore my interventions will be tailored to that particular person. I specialize in working with depression and every day issues that bring anxiety or despair to a person.

What type of Mokena 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 Mokena?
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.
