I am a passionate healing professional who believes healing happens differently for everyone. I believe healing is a collaborative process in which curiosity, openness, relationship, and patience remain at the core of the partnership. I explore creative and anti-oppressive practices, which create space for trauma narratives to take unfiltered shape, as well as traditional modalities. I am trained in CBT, Trauma-Focused CBT, DBT, and the Collaborative Change Model. For the last two years, I have trained with Mary Jo Barrett from the Center of Contextual Change in the Collaborative Change Model.

You’re at a crossroads in your life that demands that you show up as unapologetically YOU. But you’re uncertain how to embody that version of yourself. Or what that even means exactly. You’re intuitive, spiritual or highly sensitive, yet you can’t seem to apply those superpowers to your own life. You’ve heard a deeper call to integrate your shadow parts, release your past traumas and heal your inner child wounds, but the very thought feels overwhelming. You crave space mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually to relentlessly pursue your passions, and show up as your favorite version of yourself.

I feel it is a privilege to help people find ways to cope and empower them through challenging crisis or relationship struggles.

What type of Waukegan 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 Waukegan?
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.
