We all have felt overwhelmed and anxious at times and it's okay to feel things like sadness and a lack of motivation. But do you feel like a fog has settled in over your life? Do your feelings overwhelm you, making it difficult to function? That can be a sign of stress or trauma. Things I understand as a therapist and fellow human being. If you are hesitant or nervous about beginning therapy, let me reassure you that I will do my best to make sure I create a safe space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a way that is most comfortable to you.

When we encounter difficulties in our lives we are effected in physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual ways. I work to help my clients understand how their history impacts them on many levels and how our past, overtime, creates patterns of communication and sets the stage that determines how we deal with life's ups and downs. If we can gain understanding of the past and connect the dots between where we began and where we are today, then we can begin to heal and create new effective ways to communicate, build healthy relationships and realize more fulfillment in our lives.

Using an integrated approach that focuses on recognizing personal strengths, increasing self-awareness, and tapping into the healing powers of creativity and the unconscious through art, dreamwork, and mindfulness, I focus on issues such as communication, blocked creativity, anxiety, and identity challenges, which may greatly impact our day-to-day existence.
It seems that "being" is more complicated than ever. With increased technology and less face-to-face contact, many are left feeling disconnected, disheartened, and disenfranchised from the person they hope to be. From maintaining healthy relationships and creating meaningful connections to finding purpose and staying positive, life can seem more than overwhelming at times. Do you want to know yourself better? To reduce or eliminate emotional pain? To develop a more complete understanding of your issues and how they relate to your life challenges? Do you want to move forward in spite of perceived barriers to success?

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Crystal Lake 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 Crystal Lake can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Crystal Lake MBCT therapists.
