I specialize in transitions, anxiety, depression , and loss.
Life is filled with transitions, both good and painful, and it is our attention to those transitions that help us build joy and fulfillment in our lives. I believe that therapy is about a good match between the therapist and the person seeking assistance and that this partnership forms the basis for a real opportunity for self knowledge and growth. In our work together I provide a thoughtful, caring and safe space to attend to the life issues that are most in the forefront for you. With focused attention to those issues, surprising and hopeful things begin to occur.

I'm a warm, experienced therapist specializing in treating anxiety, depression and relationship issues. Most of us experience these feelings at one time or another. We may even talk to friends or family members. When friends and family members aren't able to help, though, it makes sense to seek out a trained professional. I use evidence-based, best practices to help you find relief as quickly as possible. Each session consists of a dialogue in which both of us participate. When clients finish treatment, it's not uncommon for them to express feeling safe, connected, understood and supported as they review our work together.

My areas of focus include working with:relationship issues, PTSD, anxiety, depression , trauma, grief, LBGQT, suicidal & homicidal ideation.
We come from all walks of life and sometimes we come to a halt in the road where we feel defeated. There are so many challenges we are facing and it feels like we have no one to turn to. There are many different reasons people choose therapy, whether it is to find ways to cope with mental health issues, dealing with relationship issues, grief, or traumatic experiences. This road may be scary, but know that you are not alone. My goal as a therapist is to meet people where they are at in an empathetic way, build a collaborative relationship as you work through the challenges you are faced with.

I am trained in EMDR, a researched-based treatment that can greatly relieve the negative effects of traumatic experiences, depression and anxiety. PTSD is a treatable condition, not a lifetime burden! Through EMDR therapy you will make peace with your past and learn how to manage your feelings and emotions as they arise. I offer relaxation training, guided imagery, and mindfulness. I am comfortable working within your spiritual framework and your cultural background.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Oak Park. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
