Do you have a child or adolescent that is suffering from anxiety or depression? Transitions can be difficult and result in symptoms, stress and unhappiness for some youth. I work to help each person get through their challenges and find their strengths. Families can benefit from a therapist who helps them to process their feelings and experiences. Parents can feel overwelmed when their child is suffering.

I offer child and adolescent therapy, along with adult counseling.
Do you live in a constant state of anxiety? Are you experiencing feelings of depression that you have difficulty managing? I am experienced in helping people find solutions to manage their life in a more positive light. I believe that the connection the therapist makes with the client is vital. That connection allows the client to open up and express their concerns to the therapist, and together they can discover strategies for improvement. I help clients work on symptom reduction and help them achieve the goals they want in their lives by creating small, achievable steps.

I see children , adolescents, adults, and elderly clients.
We all want to live healthy, engaged lives of meaning and value. As we live, negative events occur which can lead to use feeling "stuck" and miserable. However, I believe that one can choose to live differently, that change can occur for anyone regardless of your age, problems, or circumstances. Therapy with me involves engaging in a meaningful conversation with each other in a safe environment. Part of this change occurs in our establishment of a collaborative relationship emphasizing respect and authenticity. In therapy, we will explore strengths, values, ways of thinking, expression of emotion, and behaving in healthy ways.

With an MA in Marriage and Family Therapy and professional certification In Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, I possess specialized knowledge and training to understand the complex emotional life of children , adolescents, and families.
Sometimes children and adolescents feel sad, anxious, and overwhelmed by changing life situations, which may impact the development of their full academic, emotional and social potential. Sometimes a home can be a seat of conflict instead of refuge, because of stressful situations, such as divorce, financial difficulties, or stage-of-life changes. Understanding and working through the complex emotional issues confronting children , adolescents and their families is the focus of my training and my practice. Our goal in treatment is empowerment through strategies that build resilience, strength and hopeful perspectives.

We are a child and family psychology practice. My associates and I believe in a cooperative treatment experience where client and therapist share responsibility for the identification and mutual direction of problem solving strategies. We are convinced of the importance of involving significant others in the treatment process when possible. Often children and adolescents react to problems in the context of school and family. We value feedback from teachers and staff professionals and look for collaborative relationships in pursuing the best needs of the child or adolescent.

I have experience working with children , adolescent, young adult and adults with behavioral issues, ADHD, autism spectrum, anxiety, depression and self-esteem issues.
It can be difficult to reach out for help at times. It shows bravery and strength and may take personal motivation to do so. Reaching out is that first step showing you have what takes to heal. I will meet you at your point of need. I help clients like you develop the skills needed to create change, accomplish goals, and live a healthier happier life. With success we begin to change our beliefs that were creating hardship to ones that create growth, health, confidence, and acceptance. I strive to treat every person as family with a warm, compassionate approach.

It effects not only the person who is diagnosed but the caregiver and the children as well.
Loss can take many forms such as illness, divorce,or injury. Join me in a recovery and discovery process that will help you look at life in a manner that heals the hurts and opens new possibilities. Children and loss are particularly difficult as children grieve differently from adults. My experience with children and adolescents tells me that they have more to say than one can imagine.

As a married person of 15 years and mother of 4 children I can relate.
Every family is fighting their own battle. Whether it is addiction, depression, or inability to get along, you are not alone. Sometimes those struggles become so overwhelming, that finding support is your best option. If you have decided to stop suffering alone, you are in the right place. I work with Mothers, Fathers and Families to address their individual and family struggles. Individuals who I help are often battling symptoms of: ADHD, Anger, Depression, Anxiety, Divorce, Sex and Porn Addiction or Life Transitions. See Personal Client Reviews at HealthGrades.com

What type of Oak Brook 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 Oak Brook?
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.
