Is the transition to motherhood more difficult than you expected? Do you wonder what you're doing wrong? You may be tired of the sadness, guilt, worry, scary thoughts, and anger. You may be feeling disconnected and isolated, wondering if you're cut out for motherhood. You might not even remember how you felt before all of this started. But one thing is for sure: you're ready for some relief. You're ready to start feeling like yourself again. You're ready to reconnect with your loved ones and enjoy your children. Most of all, you're ready to find joy and contentment in motherhood.

I am a relational therapist working with individuals, couples, and those in non-traditional relationships. Seeking support from psychotherapy is a sign of inner strength and hope, even when it feels as if ones world has turned inside-out. Life rarely allows any of us a free pass; births and deaths, personal crises, relationship troubles, childhood trauma, etc. may meet any one of us head-on at sometime during our lives. Seeking help from psychotherapy is a worthwhile path to take when ways of coping no longer seem effective. I nurture the possibility of deeper understanding and self-knowledge by creatively engaging the whole person.

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.

I am a skilled therapist, I specialize in working with individuals with eating disorders, addictions. I believe entering into a therapeutic relationship takes courage. You've been turning to a substance: alcohol, drugs, food- compulsive overeating, restricting, purging- and it's no longer "working." Profound shame accompanies these illnesses which creates obstacles in asking for help. These are illnesses that annihilate all that is valuable out of one's life, therefore asking for help is vital, recovery cannot be done alone. Individuals often are facing co occurring disorders which need to be simultaneously addressed.

Many of us seek therapy when we are unhappy in our relationships or when we feel lonely. Sometimes, it is the relationship that we have with ourselves that concerns us. Therapy provides an opportunity for us to understand ourselves within the context of a relationship designed for self exploration. Sometimes individual therapy is appropriate. Other times, therapy is more helpful when our partners or other family members join us.

You’ve always been the person who made sure those around you felt good, even when that’s meant putting your needs on the back burner to take one for the team. It’s never been easy but to you it’s been worth it and you’ve been good at it. Yet, lately it isn’t working out that well any more. The anxiety has been constant and you're more irritable. You’re angry with yourself and sad. Hell, if you’re honest, you’re feeling a bit resentful towards others too. Enter the guilt. You feel horrible for being mean to your parents, partner, kids, friends. You wonder, "What is going on with me?!"

My clients wish to make peace with their bodies, food and emotions. Some might struggle with an unhealthy relationship to eating or exercise. Others might hold shame or curiosity around sex that they wish to explore in a safe, nonjudgemental environment. My clients want to learn to embrace and take care of themselves with a nurturing, self-compassionate and anti-diet approach. Ultimately, my clients strive to live their life in a way that feels authentic and in line with their values.

Sometimes a single life event can derail us, throwing us off track both personally and professionally. Whether from a traumatic event or a significant loss, the memories triggered during everyday life can interfere with our thoughts and feelings, and influence how we act. The loss of control over our emotions can leave us feeling both anxious and depressed.

The decision to begin psychotherapy is a significant one and finding the right therapist is half the battle. The therapeutic relationship plays an important role in our work together. My goal is to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental space to explore your thoughts and feelings about your circumstances including developmental transitions such as entering college, young adulthood; experiencing work or parenting concerns; pre-marital and marital transitions such as those almost or newly married, infidelity, divorce, relational strain; and concerns of general life dissatisfaction resulting in symptoms of depression and anxiety.

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 looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
