Adult life is complex, full of so many responsibilities and accompanying stressors. Difficulties balancing work and home, communicating with others, tensions between commitments to relationships and to personal goals and achievements. These complex feelings can lead to anxiety, depression, and feeling overwhelmed.

Together we will examine your early life experiences for insight into who you are and to shape your personal values toward realizing contentment.

Whether triggered from within ourselves or from our environment, we often grapple with questions of identity, intimacy, isolation, change, and mortality. These 'deeper' themes may manifest as problematic behaviors (e.g., addictions, patterns of relating), rigid thought patterns, uncomfortable emotions, and feelings of emptiness. We may come to therapy searching for symptom relief, understanding, connection, and change.

If you are trying to better understand your child or help them through a difficult time; I offer families the support and nurture to grow stronger together. Too often children can be labeled by behaviors when they are struggling to communicate something valuable. I assist parents in exploring the meaning behind these behaviors by taking time to reflect on the relationships, interactions, and care giving responses to improve the overall quality of the relationship.

Does your child struggle to express their feelings in a safe and effective way? As a licensed therapist, I understand that when children act out or become withdrawn, they could actually be asking for help. Often children and even adolescents do not have the skills to manage or share overwhelming emotions. I believe that every client deserves individualized treatment so they can use their unique strengths to generate positive change within themselves and throughout their lives. I provide a safe and nonjudgmental space for us to work together to address the challenges your child and family are facing.

I offer insight, compassion, gentle challenging, and respect in my client relationships. Clients find me straightforward and willing to back-up or change directions if that helps us make progress. I use somatic, body-centered approaches alongside traditional talk therapy. I find this approach works well for treating trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship conflict, substance use, stress and overwhelm. I am also trained in Emotion Focused Therapy for Couples, which I enjoy very much.

Does every day feel like Groundhog's Day--like you are struggling with the same issues you always did? Do you feel like you're not "good enough" or that you're not living-up to your full potential? Does it seem like your past is preventing you from enjoying your present? YOU ARE NOT ALONE! At some point, we all experience these feelings. I believe that we are all capable of growth and transformation. Through a positive client-therapist relationship, we will identify and examine patterns so that you break self-defeating behaviors, create healthier relationships, heal from past trauma, and enhance personal growth.

Very rarely in our lives are we given the opportunity and the space to truly look at ourselves, where we have been, and the person we are looking to become. At Kate Giandonato & Associates, we create an environment where you can safely look at yourself, relationships, and potential barriers to achieving your goals. Our relationship-based training in Social Work + Child Development has given us the background to notice and work through the conflicting messages, thoughts and emotions present not only in the parent-child relationship, but in every relationship. We work with our clients to better understand and negotiate these most important relationships.

People with stressful lives, who have been trying their best to deal with anxiety, self esteem, relationship issues -- all reasons people call/email me initially. You may have noticed feeling or behaving in ways that are self-defeating, or are disappointed that you don't function better or feel more authentic with others, or fully engaged in your life. Crises such as divorce or loss, questions about parenting or work pressures can serve as catalysts for reevaluating the way we've been living. Psychotherapy offers a unique opportunity to discover what I believe is inherent in everyone: the ability to change and grow and heal.

What type of River Forest 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 River Forest?
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.
