My goal is always to give my clients the opportunity to feel seen, heard and supported. I am non-judgmental, caring and somewhat goofy. I have worked in a variety of settings around grief/loss, identity development, trauma/abuse, anxiety, depression and disability concerns. I have training and experience in trauma-informed play therapy , and I love incorporating expressive arts into my practice. My approach is grounded in attachment-theory, narrative therapy, family-systems theory and anti-oppressive practice.

My philosophy in working with clients is to build a trusting relationship with them by learning about their story - their family's story, their personal story, their triumphs and their challenges. I then work with the client to use their strengths to help them form a new story, a story where they change ingrained habits and live the life they have always dreamed of living. Cuando trabajo, mi filosofía es crear una relación con clientes y escuchar su propia historia. Mi objetivo es ayudarlos a realizar su sueno.

My ideal client is someone who has a foundation of wellness and is looking to bridge the chasm between where they are and where they would like to be. They have self-awareness, motivation, and a support system to aid them in their journey. They are looking to learn and implement sustainable tools, practices, and habits that will embody their authentic truth and enhance their lives as a whole. They are curious and open about alternative and holistic methods of healing. They are willing to lean into fear of walking the unknown path of internal alchemy and evolution, knowing they are the ultimately the one that can heal themselves.

My ideal client is ready for change. They are open to creative ideas and new ways of thinking about themselves and the world. They are equal collaborators and partners with me on their journey. They are willing to stay curious when we meet challenges on our journey together. They are also willing to laugh with me and find joy in the process of becoming. I often work with teachers, advocates, performance artists (above and below line), visual artists, and folks navigating identity issues. Religion, race, ability, and gender are often the foundations of my identity work. I provide custom workshops for groups as well.

I believe that healing from mental illness is a process that takes time, patience, and compassion for yourself. My approach to therapy is that as a client, you should be provided space to guide the work, fostering self-empowerment, identity development, and discovering what will work for you. My goal is to create a partnership with my clients while bringing in my knowledge about psychological care. Currently, I am providing virtual sessions or in person sessions at our Burr Rudge office, and I am accepting clients across the lifespan for trauma disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders, and/or preventive care.

In therapy, it feels essential to look at not only our own thoughts and emotions but also the expectations set by our environment. I utilize affirmative, trauma-informed, and relational lenses to encourage insight and explore assumptions impacting how we engage with the world around us. My clinical and research focuses relate to sexual identity, gender diversity and transition, and ethically non-monogamous relationships. Aside from these, I work often with anxiety, depression, communication, conflict management, boundaries, trauma, life transitions, discrimination, substance use, and premarital/marital counseling.

Experiencing unexplained sources of anxiety, and not understanding out own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors can be really scary. Not being able to understand or effectively communicate with your child can be even scarier.

Our mental health is important. Oftentimes, we ignore our needs in pursuit of our goals. We get new jobs, start relationships, relocate, attend school, become care givers, or have children. Transitions are a part of lives and creating new routines are a necessity to managing these changes. Even if the changes are for the better creating new habits can be stressful.

Despite supporting those you love, working incredibly hard, and being a good friend, you still worry a lot. You want to let go of worry, overthinking, and frustration. You care too much about what others think, make others comfortable at your expense, do the supposed right thing, struggle with the confidence to say no, and don’t listen to your thoughts and feelings. It's hard to say no when you believe it means you're lazy or selfish. You don't want to disappoint people. You may think, “Expressing my needs would be too much.” You want peace and confidence. You also want to express your real self and transform your relationships.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Illinois, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Illinois listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
