Welcome to Oasis Healing Hands Healing Minds where we focus on offering a rejuvenating escape from the pressures of everyday life. Throughout therapy, we will focus on what has proven most effective in helping to alleviate the stress and pressures that we all feel throughout our day. We will focus on allowing you to recognize how other’s emotions impact you and how you express your own emotions. We will work on exploring attempts to avoid distressing thoughts and feelings rather than confronting them directly. We will look to identify recurring themes and patterns of your thoughts, behavior, and emotions.
Struggling to feel happy, calm, confident? Do you find yourself feeling stuck, lost, confused, or helpless? Experiencing discord in your relationships with family, friends, or partner(s)? Perhaps you are having difficulties making decisions or you feel as though as though your life compass is off balance. Let's just be real. It really sucks to go through any of the scenarios. It's difficult to experience hard feelings, but there is no shame in recognizing that these might be coming up. In fact, recognizing difficult thoughts and feelings is a sign of strength and a first step in finding relief and answers or solutions.
I work with individuals suffering from depression, anxiety and trauma. I also see families dealing with Life Transitions including new medical diagnosis, the move of a parent to Long-term care, children leaving home. My clients include military families, as well as married, divorcing or struggling couples. Our work together often includes recognizing grief as a natural process of change and growth. I also provide clinical supervision and consultation services for mental health providers.
Everyone encounters challenges in their life that may feel overwhelming. Seeking counseling during these times is a sign of strength, as it suggests the willingness to address problems rather than avoid them. I teach solution-focused tools that clients can use in the real world. I have a collaborative approach with my clients and believe humor and empowerment are key components to therapy. If stressful thoughts are keeping you up at night, it may be a sign that you're ready tackle the things that are holding you back. I would like to help.
What do you do when you are confused? Hurting? Angry? At these times, talking to someone with training and experience can help. I strive to provide a supportive setting where problems can be thoughtfully examined and helpful solutions found. I enjoy working with people. I enjoy working with people who are skeptical because it is so exciting to help someone find answers when there appeared to be none. We will set goals and timelines together, and I will use my training and experience to help you find the answers that work for you. Therapy can work!! If you are thinking you need to talk with someone, please give me a call.

I began working in Mental Health 29 years ago in Chicago and I found my calling. I provide counseling and support to a variety of individuals. I work with individuals who live with schizophrenia, psychotic disorders, bipolar, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma and grief. Clients want to be heard, to be validated that their experiences are real, their experiences are hard and painful. With support and a non judgmental environment , clients can learn ways in which to manage their symptoms, reduce them and recover.

Hoping to find some direction or guidance? Are you wanting more peace in your life? I will be glad to partner with you and assist you in reaching your goals. I provide caring, highly competent, straight-forward, direct responses as you seek a quality life. There is hope for change; you can build a better, more fulfilled future!

Feeling overwhelmed, stuck, or depressed? I have assisted many clients in addressing and managing their mental health and wellness. I empower my clients with tools to move themselves through life's challenges by supporting and instilling hope. My experience ranges from helping people cope with depression, anxiety, family stressors, life changes, and transitions, work stress, relationship challenges, parenting, grief/loss, infertility, and pregnancy.
I appreciate people who care and are engaged, but may need a little help. We are all intelligent, creative, funny and loving. Sometimes, all you need is help finding that path. I like people who are willing to be open and give it a try. This may look like an individual looking to face changes, or maybe a couple looking to learn how to communicate or find that lost spark. In other cases, this may involve business partners or family members learning how to trust one another. I like to work with people who are willing to do the work.
Life seems really good, right? Your family loves you. You love them too. You love your job, have a great career, or you are are working towards one. yet you feel sad, scared, hurt and lonely. You want to be happy, joyful and hopeful about life.
Days and nights all run together and life seems meaningless and without purpose. Your relationships are not fulfilling. You have crying spells but you wear a game face like everything is going great.
It's time to find joy and happiness. it's time to build and enjoy nurturing relationships.
Do you find yourself struggling with relationships both at home and at work? Do you feel hopeless with a strong desire to move to the next chapter of your life, but unsure how? Struggling with alcohol, drugs or other addictions? Do you feel "Stuck?" Many individuals, couples and groups that come to see me are looking for specific tools to change feelings, interpersonal relationships, and actions (or inactions). There is hope, increased freedom and self-efficacy is possible.
I have worked with a wide range of individuals throughout my career and love what I do. I love to see how my clients grow throughout their time with me and my goal is to help children, families and adults find the strength, wisdom and hope to become happier and more successful individuals either through themselves or family units with my help and specialties.

We all bear marks and scars from life’s hardships and trials. Comparison of pain can frequently keep us from reaching out for help because “someone has it worse.” I am here to help you walk through whatever pain has brought you to where you currently are, grief, anxiety, depression, or transitions in life. Taking the step to seek counseling is incredibly brave; it is stepping out and saying you are more than what may seem insurmountable right now.
