I am an EMDR and APSATS Multidimensional Partner Certified Therapist, and an ICF Certified Coach.
I believe that each of us has a space between our hurting and healing. That space is unique to us, and in that space we each learn to love, understand, and embrace ourselves. We will explore this space together, without judgement. You will build empowerment skills to trust and love yourself. I will provide a safe space to explore, possibly discover, this side of yourself for the first time. In my practice I use an evidenced based attachment therapy, touching on the relational bonds we have developed throughout our lives.

I specialize in substance abuse. I am a seasoned counselor and for the past decade my focus has been on working with individuals, groups, families, and couples who are struggling with substance use. I have led others to a life of understanding themselves and their relationships with substances. I have led many to make sense of the insanity that surrounds the disease of addiction.

Marriage Whisperer! That's what a recent couple called me after one of our sessions. Of course, the reality is that I've been fortunate to be trained by Harville Hendrix, an expert in the field of couple's therapy and the founder of Imago Relationship Therapy. Imago therapy is a state-of-the-art system that gives couples of all kinds, the knowledge, and most importantly, the TOOLS to help each other give and receive the love they want. I work with couples both in my office, and in the weekend "Getting the Love You Want" workshops.

I love working with individuals who are struggling to break free of old habits, patterns of behavior, or relationships that are no longer serving them. Often it takes getting to the "end of our rope" with things to find that we have the most motivation to change. Making changes can be really scary and anxiety provoking, even when we know what we've been doing up until this point isn't working. I like being that supportive partner that helps a client figure out what isn't working, what they might like to change, and how. I value moving at a client's pace, in their direction, and in pursuit of their own vision for their life.

I work with individuals and couples .
People often search for a therapist when they feel like they've tried everything and it's just not working well enough. It can be hard to see a situation clearly when you've been immersed in it for so long. I help people to take a step back, so they can see things more objectively. Through psychotherapy, people can find internal strength and resources they didn't know were there. They can then start to see new perspectives, both of themselves and their situations, and can begin to make changes.

My ideal client is someone looking for a therapist who is going to partner with them for change - not just give advice and "chit chat" for an hour. I understand that clients come to me feeling "stuck" and often "hopeless." I believe that by carefully assessing your presenting problems, identifying barriers to success and helping you devise a concrete and realistic plan of action, I can help you get on the road to recovery. My clients come from all walks of life but I am especially passionate about working with immigrant and minority groups and am passionate about social justice and equality in behavioral healthcare.

My role is to serve as an interactive and supportive partner and comprehensive, detailed, and tailored feedback is provided when we review your results.
Treatment involves investing in your mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional well-being, and is well worth the effort! Developmental factors, relationships, grief, stress, anxiety, depression, transitions, and trauma all impact our natural ability to maintain balance and live happier and more satisfying lives. Often, the first goal of treatment is to identify the reason for problems. I conduct comprehensive neuropsychological testing across the lifespan, to clarify diagnosis, identify learning disabilities, and assess behavioral, emotional, and social problems, to provide concrete recommendations and an action plan for treatment.

I have over a decade of clinical experience and training with adults in transition, children and adolescents, families and couples , as well as young adults.
I believe that healing relationships, with others and with one's self, is the core ingredient for change in therapy. I feel that the optimal therapeutic approach with any person must be tailored to the needs of the particular individual and/or client system. Therapy should be approachable and create an environment of acceptance and self-love. In understanding human behavior, it is not so much about "good" or "bad" behavior, but trying to understand why we do what we do and to make sure our behaviors are constructive for ourselves and the relationships important to us.

Therapy is a place to be with what hurts while stepping into being fully yourself. In the presence of a skillful, non-judgmental, compassionate therapist, you will have the opportunity to face these aspects of yourself so that new ways of living emerge.

I have specialization in working with children and adolescents though I work with many adults and couples .
When I begin to work with a new client, my goal is to understand each client and see his or her strengths, abilities, and positive qualities. Very often new clients, especially children or teens, are so used to thinking or hearing about their problems that they themselves seem to forget their own positive traits and attributes. I really enjoy helping foster resiliency among my clients, helping them recognize their capacities to cope, heal, and move beyond feeling stuck or powerless. My approach is very effective with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, low self esteem, and feeling overwhelmed in life.

Chances are, you have happened upon this website because you are looking for something to be different: a feeling, a relationship, a thought, a mood... Together, we will determine what needs to change by looking outside ourselves (exploring roles, rules, connection, boundaries, communication, and support) and by looking within ouselves (exploring thoughts, feelings, coping skills, internal dialogue, and how we've made meaning out of different experiences). Through the process of learning, accepting and changing, something inherently will be different...and you will feel different.

Couples : You can change the repeating argument's that makes you feel helpless, hurt and misunderstood, keeping you from the love and harmony you deserve.
Life is challenging and you may have worries, sadness, grief, a feeling of frustration in your work or a lack of connection to others. Therapy may seem daunting but it doesn't have to be. It is that very special place where you look at yourself with courage, compassion, and curiosity, without judgment or blame. It is the place to grow, change, to be seen and not alone. You already have the strengths and gifts to draw on, to deal with any challenge or concern, you just need to take the time and effort to do this for yourself.

What type of Skokie 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 Skokie?
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.
