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 understand that the therapeutic relationship is extremely important.
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.

The elephant in the room is that it still feels taboo to sit with a stranger and talk about the intimate details of your life. I understand the stress that may come along with seeking help, but no matter what life may bring I am here to listen and provide guidance in whatever way I can. I believe in the importance of building a strong relationship with each client in efforts to form trust, gain self-awareness, and ultimately create positive change.

Marriage & Family Therapist, PhD, LMFT
Verified
I specialize in discernment counseling, couples and family therapy, and divorce mediation. It is what differentiates me from my peers. My PhD is in couples counseling; a specialty that few clinicians have any training in. One distinction is that we will have longer sessions. We will meet for 90+ minutes because it is more effective in helping couples experience how to make necessary shifts in their relationship . These shifts change the trajectory of their relationship at home, where it matters most.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

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