Have you endured hurt that has felt seemingly impossible to overcome? Sometimes the hurt we experience from toxic relationships can feel impossible to heal from. Whether experienced within our relationships with families, friends, or romantic partners, this hurt may be accompanied with feelings of hopelessness or pure frustration, leaving you to wonder “Will these feelings ever get better”?! These traumatic experiences can sometimes impact our self-esteem in profound ways while also affecting other areas of our lives and relationships, unknowingly.

Deciding to come to therapy can be very scary. Sharing your most intimate thoughts with someone can be even more frightening. This is why I make sure that I create a very safe, caring, positive, and secure place where you can feel comfortable and know that you are with someone who truly cares about your well-being. My passion is helping individuals (children, teens and adults), couples, families, and groups work through stress, anxiety, fear, personal challenges, grief, family, and relationship issues.

I am looking to work with highly motivated Black Women In Leadership who are use to being the "go to" for others but when it tis time for them to be supported they often find themselves with no one to "GO TO"! They have most likely already done some work whether it be therapy, coaching, or some other forms of personal development. However they have reached a plateau in their healing and are looking for something that can finally get them to a place of profound peace, abundance, joy, and SATISFACTION! They are looking for a safe space where they are understood with radical non-judgment and unconditional positive regard!

Many people think that therapy is simply a place to vent about life’s problems. Or that only people with “problems” need therapy. This is not the case! Therapy is where you go to meet with someone who is trained and skilled in providing resources that help you navigate life’s challenges. Everyone can benefit from that type of support! To the person struggling with anxiety, imagine feeling so confident in yourself that everything in your life reflects that. To the person struggling with a traumatic past, imagine becoming so healed that you can handle whatever else life throws at you. If you want to work towards healing, contact me.

What type of Palos Hills 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 Palos Hills?
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.
