Are you worried for your child? Sometimes your child is stressed and they are showing you in acting out behaviors, anxiety or depression. While we specialize in youth, I also see individuals and families for counseling services designed to help discover new ways to approaching problems that currently hold you or your family back. For parents, this may look like learning ways to reduce stress and implement consequences that are effective at changing negative behaviors in children. For children and teens, this could include learning expression of feelings in words, art, or movement to build helpful ways of coping with tough emotions.

I want to commend you for your bravery in taking the first step towards reaching out for help. Counseling can give you a non-judgmental place to vent as well as a place to learn about new ways to manage overwhelming feelings. As a therapist, my main way of understanding how people work is through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It can help us challenge our negative thoughts and utilize healthy coping skills. I primarily take a humanistic approach with my clients and make sure to address psychosocial, biological, developmental, spiritual, and cultural issues as needed since every client is unique.

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. Gurnee 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 Gurnee.
