Therapy may seem intimidating, but sometimes what you are most afraid of doing can be the very thing that will set you free! I believe that therapy, coupled with a mindset of positivity, can be the life-changing event that propels you out of negative circumstances. Unexpected things are going to happen in life, people may disappoint us; all we can really control is how we choose to handle things. I utilize courage, humor, empathy, and emotionally focused techniques to create a safe, non-judgemental space for couples, adults, and adolescents to explore, heal, and achieve lasting change in their lives.

Physical, sexual and mental abuse as well trauma history, domestic violence, communication and relationship improvement, problems arising from pornography, and depression are a some topics that I have focused my practice on. Success in therapy is ultimately the result of the collaboration of you and I - the client and the therapist. There are no set number of sessions. You are a unique individual and you work at your own pace. I am committed to working with your needs and timetables.

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.
