We are all human. However, each individual is unique in their life experiences, personal needs, and individual goals. Therapy creates a safe place to have the past meet the present in order to find a greater understanding of our lives. Self-exploration can help provide greater insight, purpose, and healing in order to live a more productive and healthy life.

Starting on a course of healing takes courage, but it is one of the most rewarding things we can do for ourselves. We have all been hurt at different times, and those hurt parts of ourselves are very grateful when we give them some loving attention and start the healing process. We unconsciously create blocks to our own health, but we can also learn to gently release those blocks. We are actually hard-wired for loving ourselves, believe it or not, even those parts we don't like, are afraid of, or are embarrassed about, and that self-love is healing. Therapy is not an instant process, but is very worthwhile.

My experience allows me to assist individuals with identifying challenging areas in their life and developing strategies and methodologies to adequately and timely address maladaptive behaviors and fears that are barriers to their mental health status and healthy growth and development. The hardest step is making the call and asking for help. Some may see that as a weakness where I see it as a strength. In our everyday lives we are asked to sacrifice and to help others, but who is helping you during your time of sadness, fear, anxiety or despair? I would like to be that light for you by offering non judgmental, client centered,

I thank you for considering Inner Focus to help you through.

My philosophy helps clients look inside themselves as to the thoughts and behaviors that might be holding them back, or causing them to feel stuck and to explore together moments of strength, healing, and self compassion, in order to find growth and healing. I believe that we as human beings are resilient and can flourish when identifying unhealthy patterns of thinking that are causing us to feel stuck. It’s important to provide genuine support and mindfulness techniques, in order to build an empathetic relationship with clients, in order to achieve mind and body healing.

Now accepting clients! Facing life's challenges isn't easy. Living with mental health struggles can be isolating due to social stigma. You may feel overwhelmed, anxious, isolated, or hopeless. Maybe you've experienced something painful or traumatic that's affecting you, including systemic violence or identity-related oppression. Understandably, it might feel like there's no way things could improve. While counseling can't change everything, having support through your toughest times can help. That's why I'm here. You want a counselor with open ears, an open mind, and an open heart. Someone to help you best weather life's storms.

You’re feeling disconnected, either from yourself or others, lost, in pain, or just not like yourself. Maybe you’ve been here before, or this could be the first time you’re seeking therapy. Regardless, I warmly welcome you! I use mindfulness, narrative, parts work, and psychodynamic approaches blended with cognitive restructuring to support people with mood and thought disorders, difficulty with relationships, life transitions, grief/loss, and singular, chronic, or intergenerational trauma. Your body is also in therapy, so somatic, body-centered approaches to anxiety, depression, and other symptoms are also incorporated in my work.

I believe everyone deserves to find their voice, to feel seen and heard. We all long for deep, authentic connections, but we can often get stuck in old patterns with those we love. We end up sacrificing our needs, avoiding vulnerability, or "acting out" in ways we don't understand. I enjoy helping people with trusting their intuition, building self-esteem, communicating effectively, and creating meaningful boundaries and connections in relationships. I work with individuals, couples, and families of all ages, backgrounds, and identities. I offer tools for navigating anxiety, depression, stress, and bodily symptoms.

Living in a city as big as Chicago offers many opportunities yet it can sometimes feel overwhelming, lonely, and even isolating. Are you hiding certain pieces of yourself from your friends or family to avoid conflict or to fit in? You might feel like no one knows the real you. You’ve noticed a shift in how you deal with stress. Maybe it’s coming out as increased drinking, binging or restricting food, or turning to other coping behaviors. Or maybe you’re in recovery but other parts of your life continue to feel unmanageable which feels frustrating. You no longer need to feel trapped. Change is possible and hope can be found.

Often when people start working with me they tell me intellectually they know how to handle something but emotionally they are stuck and keep doing the same unhelpful things over and again. Other times, people come in not knowing why they feel as they do, but they just want to feel better. Initially, couples frequently report having the same problem or argument. By collaborating with my clients, I help them work through what is getting in the way of healthier functioning and relationships. I take a systemic, integrative perspective, informed by research, utilizing a variety of approaches so that I can best meet your needs.

There is no correct or easy path through trauma and the problems it creates in our lives. It is true when they say that the “only way out is through.” As someone who personally and professionally has experience with trauma, I am able to therapeutically guide individuals through the healing process without judgment. I want others to know it's okay to feel their feelings and that sometimes we need a little help to feel safe doing so. Therapy should be a space that you can create with your therapist, as all of us define safety and comfort in different ways.

You want inspiration to pursue what matters, and less anxiety about what doesn’t. You want to stop apologizing for what makes you you, and to speak aloud the fears, fantasies and experiences that have previously been silenced. You want to revel in yourself—maybe for the very first time. Or you know your relationship is on the rocks, but you aren’t sure where to begin. You think you might need therapy, but it’s hard to get started. You’ve bought books, read articles, and exhausted your emotional and mental resources - you’re exhausted. You no longer want to do this alone. You want to know where to go from here.

My ideal style of therapy is suited to clients who believe that the relationship between therapist and client is paramount to the ability to change. I believe that change happens at the crossroads of challenge and non-judgement and this is the primary focus of my treatment- creating a safe environment in which clients believe they can present their issues and have them challenged in a supportive and non-judgemental way. I firmly believe that all clients have the ability to heal and grow regardless of personal, historical, professional and relational challenges.

What type of Oak Park 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Oak Park?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
