Many many people struggle with substance use issues.
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.

Therapy can be enlightening, informative, life-changing, and sometimes even life-saving. I believe in the power of psychotherapy & human connection. More importantly though I believe in you, as a person, to have the power to access the ability for growth. My ideal client is someone who is willing to challenge themselves by digging deep & connecting the dots between how your past life experiences may be affecting your present self through your thoughts, emotions, or behaviors. I have experience in treating depression, anxiety, grief, loss, trauma, life transitions, relationship issues, addiction, and injustices in the legal system.

As we work together my hope is to guide individuals through their personal challenges, help ease emotional burdens, and empower all to achieve a healthier mindset. With an improved outlook, clients can pursue new fulfilling ways to live in both their professional and personal lives. There is no one size fits all approach to therapy, I like to implement holistic methods and use an assortment of therapeutic techniques that individuals can learn and use outside of sessions.

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 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 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.

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.

Surface issues often express internal tensions. In children, problems with attention or emotion regulation might express competing feelings about family, teachers, and the developmental process. With adolescents, conflicting ideas of self might yield identity confusion and tension with peers or elders. For adults, unresolved disappointments may lead to cyclical issues with family, coworkers, or love interests.

Many people come to me saying that they don't recognize themselves anymore or that they are not living the life they want to be living. They might feel plagued with negative thoughts, fear, anxiety and overall feel stuck because the things they were using to cope in the past are not helping them now. If you have been feeling this way, you are not alone! I have spent my career working in clinical leadership and providing care for clients struggling with eating disorders, PTSD, complex trauma, anxiety, depression & body image concerns. I believe in providing empathy + evidenced-based treatments and the power of healing in community.

Living with an unresolved or unprocessed trauma, whether it be physical, sexual, emotional, or even relational, can make life seem heavy. Yet, there's hope to transform yourself from a victim to a survivor. Our therapeutic journey will explore the interweaves between negative/deviant compulsive behaviors, unhealthy attachments, as well as general life areas where you find yourself highly anxious or stuck. The goal is to ultimately be able to look yourself in the mirror, smile and say, "I'm OK." You won't be alone in this journey to a healthier more positive life. We will be supporting you as you get to a more satisfying place.

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.

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.
