I have also have a special interest in women's issues , and trauma-related stress including abusive relationships, sexual assault, childhood abuse and emotional neglect, family discord and codependency.
If you are looking for a therapist, you may be feeling hurt, lost, or stuck and aren't quite sure what will help. When our most important connections are ruptured through stress, trauma, and broken relationships, life becomes overwhelming, unmanageable and isolated. Finding a therapist who will listen with intention and compassion can help you feel understood and more connected to yourself and your world. I use a relational-style focused on increasing your awareness and insight so that you feel empowered to move forward.

I have additional training and experience in couples counseling, women's issues , meditation/relaxation techniques, anxiety and depression.
I believe that understanding one's perception is essential to understanding one's thoughts, feelings and behaviors. In order to make positive changes, it is very important to understand how one perceives experiences and the reasons why. Therefore, I feel that increased self-awareness and personal growth are integral parts of the counseling process.

I believe therapy is a space where we explore the pain and the joy of human existence in a deep and meaningful way. My approach tends to be direct but I intentionally leave space for you to feel whatever comes up for you. My therapy room is a space where you and I get to delve into the realness of who you are without shame or judgment. It can be challenging to look at our internal world and acknowledge the reality of our lived experiences, but as someone who has done (and continues to do) that work, I can say this confidently: it is truly life changing to face yourself with courage.

Deciding you need therapy can be a tough process. I want you to feel safe to explore emotional issues that feel overwhelming to you. I believe the counseling relationship should be one where you and I form real connection-and that this connection is where the foundation of healing can begin. If you're not feeling the connection with me, please don't give up finding therapeutic help! A good fit is out there.

I see therapy as a journey home - home toward our best and truest selves. Our truest selves have always existed underneath the many messages we receive about what we must do in order to earn our value or be worthy of love. This process can be both painful and freeing, and in my personal experience, is usually both harder and more worth it than I imagined. I also believe we are both formed and healed in relationships, which translates into the kinds of therapy and client work I most enjoy.

My ideal client is anyone willing to come to counseling and be open to the process! Regardless of where a client may be starting from or what they’re hoping to accomplish, I believe that anyone who is willing to show up and engage in the therapeutic process can benefit, and I am happy to guide and support them on their journey. I believe I would be an especially good fit for those clients who want to learn more about themselves and the “why” behind their feelings, behaviors, and thoughts; hope to develop a deeper, more genuine connection with themselves and others; and can appreciate some gentle challenging when appropriate.

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.
