You are not broken and you do not need to be fixed. There are some struggles in which you need extra support, an empathic person to hear you, skills and techniques, and a space in which to be you. I am a clinician who has worked with clients dealing with anxiety, depression, substance use, crisis, and family. My approach is to connect with the client while also implementing research based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma Focus, Experiential, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Client Centered Therapy.

We all have times in our lives when things get hard to sort out, they are painful to bear, or frightening to face, and we may want to make things better, but just seem stuck. It can be helpful then to turn to someone, outside our circle of family and friends, with knowledge and skills to give us the support we need. I feel privileged to be in that sort of position as a therapist, when clients allow me into their lives by sharing personal experiences and emotions. I enjoy helping them discover ways to overcome whatever difficulties they are having.

Reaching out for help in our most vulnerable moments can be overwhelming and scary. Sometimes our self talk convinces us that we should figure it out on our own, or that our problems aren’t as bad as they could be - and we find ourselves hesitant to make that next step. I will meet your bravery and vulnerability with compassion, curiosity, feeling, and a bit of humor. I want to center what matters to you, develop skills and abilities, and help you rediscover a fullness in being alive and in your body.

Life isn't always in our control (and no, I'm not a fan of that either). In therapy, we can learn to manage the things within our control - so that we are better equipped to contend with life’s inevitable ups and downs. Whether you're experiencing a big transition, stress from everyday life, a personal loss, or a severe mental illness - we can work together to make things easier. I have experience treating individuals with a variety of concerns or mental health diagnoses. I strive to make everyone - of any body shape/size, sexuality, gender, race, religion, or disability - comfortable in the therapy room (and in their own skins).

Motivational Interviewing Therapists
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a method of therapy that works to engage the motivation of clients to change their behavior. Clients are encouraged to explore and confront their ambivalence. Therapists attempt to influence their clients to consider making changes, rather than non-directively explore themselves. McHenry Motivational Interviewing is frequently used in cases of problem drinking or mild addictions. Check these therapists for Motivational Interviewing in McHenry.
