I incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy ( DBT ) and (ACT) therapy as tools to allow clients to access their inner strengths and find solutions.
Everyone at times in their lives will face personal obstacles that seem insurmountable. These challenging and painful aspects of life exist not only at the individual level, but also in relationships, interactions, social patterns, and dynamics. Accessing inner strengths and understanding how past experiences have molded one’s understanding of self is key to healing one’s present self and effectively navigating through these life hurdles.

Our passion is to help you heal and grow in order to fully live the life God created you for. Life can be difficult and there are many things that happen that are out of our control. Sometimes it is a diagnosis like anxiety, ADHD, or depression but other times it is too much stress, a life transition, or difficult relationships that causes hardship or pain. Maybe you do not even know what exactly the problem is. Or maybe you are doing fine but want to grow into your best version. While we cannot change what is out of our control, there is so much we can do and there is always hope no matter how you are feeling right now.

I’m here to listen to the story that you’ve written for yourself so far, and to help you write the next chapter. For us, the goal will be to help you find some much-needed balance in your life, despite all of the obstacles that may be slowing you down and forcing you to live outside of who you really want to be. It’s a fast-paced world out there, and I understand the types of demands that society has placed upon us. And often times, those demands can leave us feeling defeated, exhausted, frustrated, and unmotivated to be who we really want to be – and still, we’re forced to “keep it together.”

What type of Woodridge 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 Woodridge?
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.
