Parenthood is challenging. It's even harder when things aren't going quite right for your child. Wondering if your child has Autism , ADHD, or learning challenges can feel lonely, scary, and overwhelming. You've probably spent a lot of time Googling symptoms and even more time worrying about what might be going on. You can feel stuck and like no one fully understands you or your child. You know your child best. I want to partner with you to learn more about your child and give you the best strategies to help. I aim to help children, teens, and young adults struggling with social-emotional, behavioral, and learning challenges.

Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. I understand that the decision to seek counseling can be a difficult one. The fact that you are considering counseling means that you recognize the need for some support at this time in your life, either for yourself or for a loved one. Realizing that you do not have to face this challenge alone is an important step towards growth and healing. With my experience as both a school social worker (15 years) and clinical social worker (1 year), I am uniquely qualified to support you on that journey.

Areas of special concentration include: Autism , Aspergers, Anxiety, Depression, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults who are comfortable with a one on one approach to counseling. Working with children in therapy always involves working with the parents. As with adolescents, providing them with a sense of privacy and trust is something I try to develop from the very beginning. For adults, privacy, confidentiality, and respect occur in a atmosphere of warmth and patience. If you are dealing with Attention Deficit Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Panic attacks, Bipolar Disorder, or Post Traumatic Stress, I am sure you will find the relief you are looking for at my office.

What type of Naperville 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 Naperville?
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.
