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 have been a school social worker since 2014 and worked with children and adolescents, especially those who may have special education services through an individual education plan (IEP).
I’m passionate about working with my clients to establish treatable goals and outcomes in order to become contributing members of society. We all have the power to help ourselves, but sometimes we need extra support and guidance and my role is to do just that, but in a safe and nonjudgmental environment. My ultimate goal with my clients is to provide an empathetic and compassionate ear while giving them my undivided attention. I would like to grow with them and build a collaborative therapeutic relationship until we have successfully accomplished our goals. I work with all age groups and use variety of ways to best serve your needs.

I have worked in schools and community-based mental health services with children , adults, and families from all walks of life.
Therapy can be a space to make sense of the past, make goals for the future, or problem-solve challenges as they arise. I use a strengths-based, solution-focused approach to help clients identify their needs and explore their potential. I believe as we turn our focus inward and ground ourselves, we find empowerment and clarity. The cornerstone of my practice is empathy for my clients, and I feel that change happens when there is a strong and supportive therapeutic relationship.

I utilize a strength-based approach with children , teens, and adults in providing them the tools they need to appropriate cope, problem-solve, and achieve emotional awareness.
I am a clinician focused on fostering growth, personal change, and self-empowerment with individuals and families. I love nothing more than knowing that a client and family are able to find new solutions and acquire new skills to achieve positive outcomes through therapy. I recognize that it is crucial to build a safe, warm, non-judgmental, and supportive environment for each client and to work collaboratively towards goal achievement.

I have worked with children and adults in several different roles for almost 20 years. In my career as a counselor, I have specialized in adolescents, couples, adults, and the treatment of trauma, addiction and anxiety, to name a few. I treat all conditions, and I have a passion for helping others. My approach to therapy is strongly grounded in identifying the pathway for treatment by meeting clients where they are at and using their strengths to help them reach their goals.

Unique to our group is collaborative therapeutic and testing services for children and adults.
Are you chronically worried and/or unhappy -- and can't "snap out of it?" Maybe you're stuck. Perhaps you feel lonely and misunderstood. I'd like to give you personal attention, understand you, and provide you warm, genuine, and nonjudgmental support and guidance. Together, we can identify and understand the causes of your pain, reinstill hope, and find ways for you to cope and regain pleasure in the here-and-now. My research on loss and mother-daughter relationships strengthens my work with individuals; couples; gender issues; parenting; anxiety and depression; and adjustment to loss and overall life changes.

Has something in your life stopped working? What are your body and mind telling you? We all have strategies we’ve used for years. One day we discover they are not working like they used to. Together let us explore the symptoms you are experiencing and how they are impacting your mind, your body, and your relationships. Let us build on your strengths. Discover what your beliefs are and what barriers are standing between you and the way you wish to approach life. A symptom is merely a tool that once solved the problem. When that tool stops working, together we can identify a new path.

I welcome clients who see themselves aligned with values in my profile, especially those who seeking a better therapy experience grounded in emotional connection, social justice, and authenticity. Therapy has the potential to be incredibly healing, but also comes from a history of harm, having othered people on the basis of age, race, gender, sexuality, spirituality, and disability. I offer a trauma-responsive relationship through which we can explore narrative healing of your authentic self, commitments to anti-oppressive and anti-racist living, anti-adultist parenting support, and supportive community and relationship building.

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.
