My education as a counseling psychologist was in the client-centered/experiential tradition, and I have been a practicing psychotherapist, teacher, and consultant for the past 28 years. After completing my doctorate, I trained in family systems therapy and have had extensive experience with adolescents and their families, as well as with married couples . In addition to adults and adolescents, my practice has expanded in the past several years to include seniors and other residents in nursing and rehabilitation facilities.

I work with adult individuals and couples .
"In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or step back into safety" (Abraham Maslow). Deciding to make changes in one's life takes courage. For many of us life can be difficult. Whether it's addiction, depression, relationship issues or just the fears and insecurities of life, we all have challenges we must face. Therapy is meant to be a safe place where we are able to find courage to walk through these challenges and to find real hope with practical help.

Intimate relationships can be our greatest source of joy or pain. Unfortunately, many find their relationships slipping toward the second option. It is very unpleasant to feel lonely when in a relationship. And walking around on eggshells is exhausting and can make you miserable. It is possible to restore the connection you want with your partner and go forward in life feeling like a team. That is my purpose and the focus of my practice. Our society tells us relationships are supposed to be easy if they are right. Healthy relationships are some work but are also worth it.

If you or your partner struggle with addiction to pornography, love/sex, or alcohol/drugs then you need a therapist specifically trained to help. Signs of addiction and compulsivity include: being preoccupied with thoughts related to drug of choice (sex, porn, alcohol, drugs), hiding your behavior from others, hurting others emotionally because of your behavior, feeling controlled by the desire to use, or feeling depressed afterwards participating in your drug of choice (porn, sex, alcohol/drugs). A positive response to just one would indicate a need for additional assessment. Three or more indicates likely addiction present.

I conduct individual, couples and family therapy.
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.

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.
