While always remaining client-centered, approaches I use include Emotion Focused Therapy for couples, Somatic Experiencing Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapies (including DBT and ACT), and relational interventions.
Everyone needs relationships. Whether you're looking for a safe, healing relationship within which to explore and repair past hurts or trying to mend or strengthen existing relationships, I'm here to help. I believe personal growth requires a supportive and secure environment, and I've been told my warmth and humor have put clients at ease as we seek to understand what they are wanting from therapy in order to increase meaning or satisfaction in their marital, parenting, family, friendship, work and spiritual relationships. Walking with clients as they let go of old patterns and learn new ways to live more authentically is an honor.

If you are struggling with the aftermath of trauma, or navigating a depressive episode, or feeling anxious about socializing with others, or coping with a major life change, or trying to figure where to land on your identity, you are at an important intersection of life. You may be at the edge of losing hope for change, but as Anais Nin put it, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” A crisis is also an opportunity for make a transformation with the help of an experienced mental health professional.

Some of the modalities I use include CBT, DBT , ACT, Psychoanalytic, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).

What type of Wheaton 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 Wheaton?
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.
