I never believe in giving up. Each one of us has a purpose. I believe my purpose is to help others find theirs. Sometimes we all feel stuck and I work hard to instill hope. Depression and anxiety don't have to hold you back from pursuing your dreams. Family conflict doesn't mean giving up on each other. A troubled teen doesn't have to mean troubled adult. My passion is to teach others the coping skills they need to reach out of their depression , push their anxiety aside and find harmony again in their home.

I have been a therapist for 30 years and view my role to be both a privilege and an honor: I am very sensitive to the courage it takes to share ones innermost feelings, thoughts and life journeys. I view therapy as a partnership in creating an 'action plan' to achieve the goals that are unique to each individual, couple and family. I utilize a practical and empowering approach that combines insight with cognitive-behavioral modalities to promote healthier solutions to life's challenges. Sessions are client centered and address issues on the continuum from everyday stress to mental health and behavioral challenges.

If you are here, you have already taken one of the most important steps in self-care. Whether you are dealing with anxiety, depression , life stressors or relationship problems, or simply looking for ways to improve yourself or your situation, therapy provides you with the insight, skills, and necessary tools to make positive changes in your life. While some issues respond best to a particular style of therapy, what remains critical is the therapeutic relationship. Indeed, many of my clients have told me that having a caring therapist whom they could trust, who made them feel safe, and believed in them, helped the most.

I have spent the last 20+ years primarily working with individuals with depression and anxiety, and with couples who are struggling in their relationships.
By the time people call me, I know they have typically tried a number of solutions to the problems they are experiencing. I believe in the individuals and couples I see, and I work with them to help understand and identify the feelings and circumstances that are contributing to their repetitive struggles. We work together to find solutions, identify patterns and overcome the fears and obstacles that are holding them back from the freedom and intimacy in relationships that they are longing to achieve.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Naperville. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
