At some point, we all experience changes in our lives that are difficult to adjust to. They throw us off balance and everything can seem more confusing, upsetting, and overwhelming. These are life events that prompt processing and healing. I specialize in working with individuals who are feeling dissatisfied in their relationship and/or in the relationships in their life, contemplating a break-up/divorce, those who are struggling to cope with the loss of a loved one, as well as those who are having a hard time adjusting to recent changes and life events.

My areas of specialization include mood disorders, ADHD, behavioral issues, trauma, grief , and the effects of medical related concerns and/or chronic pain.
I believe we have the potential to create a fulfilling life on every level. By engaging in the process of therapy, I have found that people are able to discover the courage and desire to change so they can seek a better, more complete way of being themselves, alone and in relationships. I approach each client as a unique individual and work to create a respectful and safe atmosphere where clients feel heard and their feelings validated. Through my active, caring and collaborative approach to psychotherapy, I hope to empower others to make positive changes in their lives and relationships.

Shame, guilt, fear, anxiety, anger, disappointment, sadness, illness, grief , loss and broken relationships are a part of many peoples' life stories yet sometimes it can be difficult to accept those parts of one's journey.

I have worked with individuals, couples, and families as they've grieved the loss of a loved one, as divorce unraveled their sense of stability, or as unforeseen events and difficult transitions presented.
I believe it is a true privilege to be able to help others work through some of their most difficult times in life. I see each person as having unique needs, dreams, strengths and challenges, and I know that working collaboratively with a client requires that I first understand and honor who that individual is. People seek therapy for a variety of reasons, and it is often a daunting task to find a therapist who is the right fit. I would love the opportunity to talk with you, so that you may decide if I am the right counselor for you.

Whether you have been side-lined by grief over the death of someone (recent or long ago), divorce, or other loss , or if your present life is not as happy or fulfilling as you want it to be, I can help.
I empower people to let go of the pain, loneliness and isolation of grief so they can live more in the present and be themselves again. I also help individuals and couples look beyond the problems that bring them to therapy, and identify the changes they can make to restore happiness and harmony to their lives. Utilizing the education, support, and exploration that take place in therapy, clients leave with greater confidence and hope, and with new tools to address the challenges they face. I also offer articles and videos on my Website to inform and educate: See https://www.joedubowski.com/

My most recent work as a Bereavement Counselor in a Hospice setting has allowed me to put into practice my many years of loss and grief training.
I offer a calming and gentle approach to clients that enhances their comfort levels and allows for open discussion of problem areas. Together, we investigate the factors that cause and contribute to their issues. Together, we investigate coping skills and factors that will diminish symptoms and work toward resolution of these life issues. In the words of one client: "If what I have to say doesn't upset you, then maybe it isn't as bad as I feared." Mood disorders, autism spectrum disorders, relationship conflicts as well as loss and grief issues are among my treatment specialties.

If you're looking for a Naperville grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Naperville.
