Verified
While I am trained in EMDR and am a Certified Solution-Focused Practitioner, a typical session with me is a combination of cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic , and expressive arts interventions.
Often times, a crisis occurs when a client experiences a duality between his or her inner world and the external environment in which he or she lives in. This client may be going through a life transition related to loss of a loved one, job loss, aging, or even changes in health conditions. He or she may even be struggling internally to make a decision more aligned with their authentic selves such as gender, unconventional relationships, and vocational interests. The goal for this client is to achieve quality of life and fulfillment without denying himself or herself of his or her true identity and human condition.

I primarily work from a relational psychodynamic framework, and am trained in ARC and Non-directive play therapy.
As a therapist, I strive to never take for granted the trust it requires to allow someone else to participate in the journey of healing. There are many reasons one might find themselves seeking a therapist, including the experience of anxiety, depression, painful memories, and relational difficulties, and no two individuals experiences any one of these in the same way. Each of us are uniquely influenced by past experiences and traumas, biology, and broader societal systems.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Naperville, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
