It is difficult finding an Army veteran who specializes in various mental illnesses. I have coached and aided in veterans , police officers, firefighters, and paramedics battle with trauma, depression, anxiety, suicide, and PTSD. Similarly, I have spent 10 years being a part of day-to-day operations surrounded by adolescents who have experienced community violence, family loss, depression, anxiety, bullying, struggles with self-worth, self-confidence, and self-esteem. While striving for new research-based practices, I have learned that Brain aligned disciplines and learning are pivotal in communicating family systems.

I look forward to all clients who are committed to making positive changes in their lives. I have experienced both domestic violence and sexual assault. I have trained specifically for those populations or anyone with TRAUMA. I I have an extensive medical background, so clients that need help navigating or understanding their diagnosis/options, I can help. I recognize that there are significant wait times for a therapist which can be discouraging. I am currently open and scheduling both in office and telehealth appointments. I want to positively impact every client I have the opportunity to serve.

I have received the "Serving Our Veterans Behavioral Health Certificate," to better serve military veterans & families.
"Making that first appointment, and asking for help, truly takes courage and is the first step to new beginnings." I believe that providing a safe and supportive space, combined with therapeutic collaboration, facilitates change. I utilize an eclectic approach and believe in using evidence based treatments, tailored for each unique individual, their specific needs, and desired goals. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families who are ready and motivated toward change, however, just aren't sure how to get there. Once given the proper tools and skills, options appear and the ability to choose a better path presents itself.

My professional background as a military veteran and retired police officer revolved around working with people at various stages of their lives and similarities and/or differences from me.
The ideal client's issues are self-focused, looking for a nonjudgmental and empathetic person as a sounding board or starting point to untangling a thought or thoughts regarding ideas, wants, needs...where they are, where they are going, and/or how and when to make a decision. The ideal client's goal is to find positive self-progress in their life and environment while minimizing negative connotations, thoughts, and ideas on oneself. The ideal client is willing to do the work for him or herself, not looking for someone to tell them what to do in their life.

My professional experiences in law enforcement and child welfare allow me to offer a unique perspective in supporting veterans , medical, public safety, child welfare, and other professionals who are susceptible to experiencing personal, relational, and professional disruption due to post-traumatic stress, secondary traumatic stress, vicarious trauma, and burnout.
I seek clients who are open to discovering their story and how it led them to their current circumstance. I am best able to nurture a relationship with a client who is aware of their reason for seeking support and is comfortable with a direct perspective to realizing their goals. My approach to working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families is centered on the philosophy that we are experiencing components of our personal story daily. When we conclude a chapter, it can impact the next chapter. By understanding our experiences and crafting our next steps, we can shape our story.

Life can be hard. Being a college student can be hard. Life transitions (like starting college) often make it clear that some things just aren’t working. Maybe you’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, alone, or depressed. Emotions, worries, or confusion become overwhelming and lead to unhelpful patterns. You've tried everything, but nothing has worked. You wonder if it will ever get better. All you want is peace, stability, and confidence in the direction your life is going. To feel good about yourself and your choices. To feel comfortable in your own skin and to believe in your ability to succeed.

Do you feel a disconnect between who you are and what you showcase to others? We encounter so much well-intended noise from family, friends, and acquaintances on what determines success, but never unplug to reflect on what success truly looks like to oneself.

Many clients who seek me out are looking for assistance with stress, trauma, anxiety, or pain reduction & often have tried therapy before & are looking for something different. I also see many therapists, educators, & health care professionals in my practice. In addition to standard CBT and other evidence-based practices, I have expertise in mindfulness-based interventions & yoga. My style is interactive, trauma-sensitive, and I honor where a client is at throughout the process.

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.
