It takes courage to seek out professional help. This may be your first time starting therapy or you are ready to continue the process after a new life challenge has come up. I strongly believe that you already have the inner resources you need to feel better, but may need assistance accessing these resources in a healthy way. Our work together will be about finding out what blocks you from feeling more empowered and alive. By learning new ways to be with difficult thoughts and experiences, it will be easier to meet the challenges and change that life inevitable brings.

A break-up, the loss of a loved one, anxiety, or adjusting to a life transition are common issues addressed in therapy. Most people go through difficult times; therapy helps you to gain better insight into your struggles and make lasting changes. Therapy can truly change how you see yourself, how you feel, and how you experience life. I work to create a judgment free, safe environment using a strength-based, holistic approach to meet your individual needs. I have extensive training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), though this is just one of the tools in my toolbox. I believe therapy is a collaborative process that is tailored

All therapy starts with collaboration at its core. Once established, Arushi then typically uses motivational interviewing, CBT, DBT & psychoeducation in providing direction & support. Her previous experience includes working with anxiety, depression, life transition, trauma, domestic violence & multicultural issues. Arushi’s approach is to view each guest holistically & individually, understanding that we can all go through similar situations but experience them differently. She believes that therapy may look different from guest to guest, but we can all benefit from the extra support.

My approach with clients usually ranges between goal-oriented and psychodynamic. We can address specific areas of improvement non-judgmentally. We can explore early childhood experiences or address traumatic events and how to move forward while challenging negative thoughts and beliefs along the way. With the treatment centered around the client’s needs, I also acknowledge intersections between race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and other cultural aspects of the client.

Sexual difficulties and dissatisfaction are surprisingly common. In fact, most of us will experience some sexual difficulties even in the best of relationships and at the best of times. However, misunderstood and unaddressed sexual difficulties can have a domino effect, negatively impacting how you view yourself, your partner, and your relationship. The result often entails unnecessary feelings of disconnection, frustration, anxiety, and shame, not to mention the loss of your sex life!

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Chicago with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based therapists in Chicago can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Chicago MBCT therapists.
