I believe it is important to help clients reflect on their experiences and the root cause of their problems, all while identifying coping mechanisms so the clients can ultimately experience life at their best mental and emotional state. I use evidence-based strategies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma- Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), and Dialectical Behavior Theory ( DBT ). I primarily work with children, adolescents, and young adults with a special focus in trauma, anxiety, grief and loss, emotional regulation, life transitions, peer management, and stress management.

In addition to CBT and DBT , I include mindfulness, social networking, and positive psychology concepts in my practice.
All of us -- women and men, young and old, poor, middle class and upscale folks, minorities and majorities -- have to deal with complexity. As a therapist I help heal hurts from the past, assist clients in managing present challenges, and work collaboratively to create more satisfying future lives. The people who see me for individual, couples and family therapy represent a culturally diverse group. Their difficulties range from anxiety and depression, to stress disorders, OCD/OCPD, relationship problems, employment issues, and bereavement. Many of these women and men report quick progress in better managing their personal, family, academic, and work lives.

My work is informed by cognitive behavior therapy and dialectical behavior therapy.
Life is filled with sorrow and joy, frustration and wonder, stagnation and growth, obstacles and openings. At times, our skill set and resources are not optimal for helping us adapt to the shifts and movement in our lives. I believe that art therapy and counseling can support understanding of our skills and resources that better equip us to adapt to life's changes. Art therapy allows opportunities to imagine the best, healthiest version of ourselves and permit clarifying moments where we perceive possibility and potential. My goal is to support clients in becoming active agents in developing positive, purposeful ideas towards wellness and good health.

I know finding a therapist can be quite difficult, so I'd like to tell you a little about the way I like to work to see if it might be a good fit for you. I like to customize what we might work on for you as part of an ongoing dialogue about how you are doing and what you need. For some people at some times having a supportive space can be quite helpful. We can also work on the structured steps of CBT and DBT .

Though my therapeutic style is primarily insight-oriented, I have extensive training in dialectical behavioral therapy ( DBT ) and mindfulness practices to support your ability to thrive.
Many of my clients present really well, seem completely put together, and their problems are not immediately apparent to others. Regardless, they have a sense that something is missing or something needs to change. I don't practice from a distance; I bring my whole self into the room in a warm, honest, and supportive way. Whether our engagement is brief and focused, or long-term and in-depth, together we'll identify what gets in the way of your happiness and work collaboratively to achieve your goals.

I use a relational, trauma-informed approach to psychotherapy, incorporating aspects of attachment, mindfulness and the body, as well as CBT and DBT .
The decision to engage in psychotherapy is deeply personal and individual to each of us. Many of us find ourselves repeating interpersonal patterns within relationships and thinking, "why does this keep happening?" Or battling feelings of self doubt and curious how the past shapes our current experiences. Maybe you are a new parent or currently pregnant, overwhelmed with this tremendous life transition and bewildered by the intensity of your emotions.

What type of Wilmette 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Wilmette?

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.
