I aim to provide an empathic space where you can feel safe and I specialize in the following areas of treatment: eating disorders, disordered eating and body image concerns, self-esteem issues, relationship concerns, trauma, anxiety and mood disorders, women's issues , undergraduate/graduate school mental health, life transitions, and stress management.
Have you found yourself struggling with your relationship with your body and food? Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by anxiety, sadness, self-doubt, or struggling to heal from painful past experiences? Perhaps you even desire more connection with others in your life, but find it difficult to show your authentic self out of fear that you may not be “enough.” If so, know that your experiences matter and that it is possible to live a life that feels meaningful to you. As human beings we all need support and guidance in our lives and deserve a sense of peace. Therapy can be a remarkable way to heal and live more authentically.

I have provided behavioral healthcare services across the lifespan and have worked on a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, OCD, bipolar disorder, immigration and acculturation issues, LGBTQIA+ and other marginalized communities, burnout, job stress, trauma, substance abuse, eating disorder, ADHD, ODD, relationship problems, and women's issues .
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.

When your family does not turn out the way you hoped or dreamed, you may be left with unresolved experiences and emotions. Whether you are struggling with infertility, pregnancy loss, postpartum blues, depression, anxiety, or are struggling to connect with your baby. From conception to graduation, these processes are often emotionally charged and can take a toll on your life. Therapy can often provide the space and support necessary to regroup, recover, and maintain well-being and health, both physical and mental.

Sometimes people aren't sure what to work on in therapy. That's okay! We will work collaboratively to identify core concerns, and decide together how to address them. Some issues I've helped people work through include depression, grief, pregnancy loss, life transitions, creative blocks, self-esteem, disempowerment, and spiritual alienation. My approach is insight oriented and relational, and while I am an art therapist, my work is not always art-based. However, as an artist, I've found that my understanding of the creative process illuminates many life situations that benefit from creative problem-solving.

My ideal in therapy is to be able to set a comfortable environment in which growth can be achieved. I truly believe that a person can overcome and achieve anything that they set their mind to. I like to set an environment in which working together with the client goals can be turned into reality. I do not believe that there is a problem that is too big or small that cannot be tackled with the help of a supportive and motivating environment. Originally I am from Lithuanian that leads me to having a special interest in immigration/assimilation concerns. I have experience working with children, adolescence, and adults.

Life is full of changes, and sometimes navigating those changes can be overwhelming and we feel "stuck." At those times, talking through concerns in a safe, trusting environment can help us regain balance and perspective. I believe in the resilience of the human spirit, and I strive to be compassionate, curious and collaborative as I help people adjust to changing circumstances, explore their feelings, and engage in mindful decision-making and planning for the future.

Have you been to therapy before and all they do is just listen? Do you feel as if that hasn’t gotten you anywhere? I take a completely different approach to therapy sessions than your average therapist. I work by providing new ideas and resources to work on improving the wide variety of struggles you might come to the session with. I will provide direct and honest feedback to what I hear is going on with you. My clients find that I’m successful at helping them gain a deeper awareness of what’s causing discomfort while increasing coping, self-esteem and gratitude. I approach and understand well-being from a holistic perspective.

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.

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.
