I think I work best with clients whose goals are both large and realistic: working with depth enough for deep healing and growth, but with an eye to the practical, and with clear communication back and forth. Clients who need to tackle embarrassing, painful and difficult issues may appreciate my gently direct, understanding and non-judgmental approach. Those who have been frustrated with cookie-cutter approaches may appreciate my close listening, collaboration, and inventiveness based on extensive training and experience. I find I work well with a variety of symptoms and presenting problems in adults , children and relationships.

I work with adults , couples, and teens, and have a special interest in working with those at the end of life, and those experiencing loss and grief.
My pastoral counseling work is grounded in my Zen Buddhist practice. My meditation practice supports a present-moment relationship with each client, creating space for us to explore the landscape of experience together. I practice contemplative psychotherapy, using mindfulness techniques to help clients access their own wisdom. Reflecting on this wisdom together can lead to making choices and taking actions that better reflect clients’ values and the way they would like to be in the world.

I provide psychotherapy to adults , teens, and families looking for a supportive place to grow and heal. Some people may be looking to make a change in their lives, while some may not be ready for a change but in search of better ways to live their life as it is. The important thing is that wherever you may be in that process, we can work together towards your vision for your life.

I have extensive experience with adolescents and adults struggling with a variety of issues, such as depression, anxiety, relational difficulties, life transitions, and professional goals.
I offer a non-judgmental, practical approach to therapy, focused on your personal growth. Life is about transition and change is inevitable. Despite people's desire to adjust and grow, they often find themselves stuck, fighting resistance to change. Clients who find themselves repeating the same patterns of experience and facing the same challenges in their thoughts and relationships can often find hope and help through the process of therapy. My interactive and interpersonal approach can help break through the conflict with yourself so that you can participate more fully in life and discover the possibilities within you.

I work with adults , teens, and children to assist in developing an understanding of one’s inner life.
As a psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience, I understand that change occurs in the context of a meaningful connection with a therapist. The importance of a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental space are crucial components in psychotherapy. My grounded approach in mindfulness and psychodynamic therapies forms the basis to help address painful emotions, relationships, and school/work struggles.

*I am not accepting new individual clients* due to the high demand for effective, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy groups. I am accepting new group therapy clients in my "Phobease Anxiety Management Groups." Groups will begin in Summer, 2021, as soon as 8 people are registered. Asking for help with anxiety or OCD is not easy. We need someone who is easy to talk to, and who doesn't shame, blame, or judge. I have years of experience providing successful, effective group therapy for children, adolescents and adults who have severe anxiety, phobias, OCD, Social Anxiety Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Panic Disorder.

Experienced with early intervention, children, teens & adults .
There are countless methods for healing & moving forward. Commitment to my clients begins with a firmly held belief in the ability of individuals to advocate for themselves & choose their own path. Emotions & feelings are a gift; they are the natural barometer for navigating our lives. Often we fear or misinterpret those emotions & fall into a holding pattern as to how to move forward. The best work is done when we are honest and open about who we are, and where we want to be. Interventions are guided through your ideals & values.

I specialize in helping people, including young adults , address the challenges of life transitions, stress, career, illness, acculturation, self esteem, relationships and early loss/trauma.
I enable clients to access the wisdom of their emotions to enhance their relationships and lives. Happy relationships and solid self-esteem are the foundations of psychological and emotional well-being, while disharmony, worries, and unhappiness signal that we need to experience new ways to effectively express feelings and enact aspirations in our lives. I strive to provide an inviting and nonjudgmental therapeutic context to empower clients to find satisfying ways to address concerns. My integrative approach draws upon Western science and Eastern wisdom, including Buddhist approaches to well-being.

Do you carry memories heavy with emotion? Does just thinking about an event make you feel the same emotions now as you did back then? Do you feel hopeless, or unable to escape your anxiety? Or maybe you have a severe phobia that interferes with you living your best life, or a recent traumatic incident has rocked your world. Sometimes it feels like the world is out of control. This can be especially true for people going through life transitions. I can help.

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.
