In addition to my broad-based training in psychological assessment and psychotherapy, I have training in CBT, EMDR, biofeedback, sleep, meditation, hypnotherapy, learning disorders, autism spectrum disorders, attachment therapy, mindfulness, and trauma/loss therapy.
My primary goal is to help clients find the hope and courage to change and heal. I believe that all life circumstances, relationships, and experiences can lead to change and greater self-acceptance. Ultimately therapy helps clients cope with loss and use difficult life transitions to promote growth. In working with individuals, couples, families, and children, I have helped them cultivate resources and develop strengths from very challenging diagnoses and life circumstances. I have helped clients suffering from relationship conflicts, health crises, depression, trauma and loss issues, compulsive behaviors, and anxiety disorders.

I am generally a solution-focused psychologist, incorporating mindfulness training and cognitive-behavioral techniques into the therapeutic process.
Choosing to see a therapist can often be anxiety-provoking, so I work hard to provide a supportive, non-judgmental, and affirming experience for clients. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in practice for over 17 years. I work with adults experiencing depression, life dissatisfaction, anxiety, relationship problems, stressful life changes, and LGBTQ issues, among other concerns. I assist clients in finding ways to improve their lives and increase life satisfaction. I accept insurance and am on numerous insurance panels. For additional information, please visit www.poschange.com or contact me by phone or email.

My therapeutic approach includes the use of mindfulness, holistic, spiritual, people centered and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies.
Life is full of ups and downs, challenges and joys. My passion is to work with individuals (adolescents - seniors) and couples as they navigate their own respective journeys. Whether you are dealing with stress, loss, anxiety, depression, anger, life changes, health or marital issues - being able to help you overcome obstacles as you continue on your path is my goal. No two people experience life the same way, and being able to develop treatment plans and goals to help you be successful is what I find most rewarding.

I am eclectic in my approach, utilizing such techniques as EMDR, dreamwork, active imagination, focusing, mindfulness, CBT, Tai Chi, journaling and therapeutic art.
As a therapist, my passion is to aid others in aligning the lives they are living with the path of the soul. Depth psychotherapy, Meditation, Tai Chi, Dream Work and Focusing, can begin to open us up to a more reflective space, developing and actualizing a greater sense of purpose and meaning in life. It may be time to dig a bit deeper in order to satisfy that quest for purpose. Often this search for meaning begs our attention through such symptoms as physical pain, depression, anxiety, anger or a simple but frustrating lethargy with life.

When we deny our feelings, pushing them away (depressing them), we get depressed. When we shame our needs and criticize ourselves for being weak/needy, we strengthen the fear that causes us to hide who we really are. This increases anxiety. When we deny traumatic memories, we develop Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Numbing reality and denying real injustices will protect us from pain in the short run. Denying what is real, however, flings us into an inner conflict in which we resist the things that we need the most, and cling to the things that make us most dysfunctional.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients in Grayslake 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.
