We all want to be healthier versions of ourselves and improve our overall wellbeing. Most of the time we tend to concentrate only on focusing on our physical health. While this is important it's not the only component of well-being we should be improving. To achieve lasting health we need to understand the importance of the body, mind and soul and how they work together to build our overall wellbeing. A healthy body keeps you well and active, a healthy mind keeps you focused and engaged, a healthy soul keeps you fulfilled and content.

As humans, we all face an array of challenges, experience pain and suffering, and sometimes, find ourselves feeling alone in the dark, helpless and hopeless. I understand asking for help can be the most terrifying and uncomfortable decision we have to make during these times. As a therapist, it is my goal to empower my clients through these hardships, to find the light. I am invested in and unafraid to provide the deep connection and nonjudgmental space essential to think, feel, and work through any fears and challenges appearing in the way of achieving your goals.
Success in therapy is a result of the expertise of the therapist and the participation of the client. The therapist is responsible for helping the client to participate in a way that is comfortable and promotes growth and change. For more than 25 years, I have been training doctoral level clinical psychologists. To do so, I have had to remain current with advances in the field and have benefited from the input of new ideas and techniques. Techniques are not effective unless the therapist establishes a trusting relationship with his clients. This is my first goal.

Today’s world, especially for youth and young adults, is more challenging to navigate and understand than ever before. Some days, you may feel like things are pretty all right and manageable. Other days, you might feel empty, hopeless, misunderstood, and confused as to how it got “this bad”. As a parent, you may notice your child spending more time alone, preferring to stay home during family outings, angry and irritable for “no reason”, or getting lower grades in school. While these feelings and behaviors can appear to affect your life in some of the worst ways, they’re also your body telling you it’s time for something different.
The Healing Center has three locations to provide services based on what you specifically need help with. Adult counseling? We got you covered, our Orland Park clinic specializes in treatment for individuals and families. Child or adolescent therapy? We got you covered too at our New Lenox or Orland Park pediatric clinic. We're a group practice and have individual therapists that specialize to ensure the best fit for you. We can also provide neuropsychological evaluations, neurofeedback and ABA therapy. We use the latest evidence based therapies in order to be effective and improve therapy outcomes for our clients.
Reaching out for help during our vulnerable moments can be overwhelming and intimidating. Sometimes we can convince ourselves that we should figure it out on our own or that things aren't bad enough to need help and we can find ourselves reluctant to take that next step. Regardless of where you are on your healing journey, I will meet you there and join beside you to work through the things that feel unbearable and impossible to overcome on your own.

Trauma can make you feel like someone has robbed you of your innocence, purpose, sense of belonging, your voice, and ability to feel safe in your own body. You might be searching for a sense of control, but feeling completely powerless. You escape into activities or relationships in order to feel anything at all and other times to make the feelings stop all together. You may have developed parts of yourself in order to survive, but what would life look like if you could shed old scripts and truly live a life that’s worth living?
