Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths."

"I believe we are all doing the best we can; lifelong relationships, systemic influences, and personal experiences create patterns, beliefs, and vulnerabilities that are ingrained into our senses of "Self" and overall ways of being. We all have our own narratives - where we come from, how we got here, what we have been through, and whom we have known - and, usually, it is not something that we chose for ourselves. In therapy, with courage, intention, and curiosity, we can better understand these ways of being, weaving them together by choice to create a life worth living and relationships worth having."

Often people feel a pain inside they are unable to understand or articulate. Perhaps you're frustrated and beginning to feel hopeless or helpless to change.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Lake View, Chicago Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Lake View, Chicago.
