Are you struggling to work through grief, trauma, anxiety, or other intense emotions, including questions about your identity, infertility, or divorce? My core beliefs are trauma often occurs within the context of a relationship & having healthy relationships with yourself & others is key to having a more fulfilling life. Working through managing distress & emotions, and taking care of yourself can be both more difficult & easier than any of us thought possible.

Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change."- Jim Rohn. People seek counseling when their emotional pain becomes too much to bear on their own and they want to be free of it. How we deal with life's pain defines who we are. While we don't choose to undergo misfortune, we do decide how we react to those events. I have found that negative experiences can also trigger something positive within us. Crisis offers opportunity for change, and pain can be the catalyst for transformation.

We all have wounds that hold us back from feeling whole and being close to the ones we love. I get it. This is hard.

Most men face challenges and carry emotional and mental burdens that are nothing like what their father or grandfathers experienced. One of the obstacles that may keep you from asking for help is the mistaken notion that to be a "real man" you must be able to handle your problems on your own. Unfortunately, that kind of isolation actually makes it harder to find satisfaction with yourself, your relationships and your career. None of us were ever intended to face our issues or challenges alone. To seek counsel and support is a sure sign of wisdom, courage and strength.

Our approaches are ones that incorporate a number of therapeutic interventions, depending on the individual situation. These may include psycho-education, skills to handle difficult emotions, relaxation techniques, and deeper therapies for things that feel stuck from trauma to every-day issues.

Conflict with your partner or spouse? Unproductive communication? Recurrent episodes of anxiety or depressed mood? Overconsumption of alcohol and/or substances in an attempt to self medicate against your out of control emotions? These and many other mental health challenges are both treatable and resolvable. In my 35+ years as a therapist to residents of the greater Fox Valley area I have observed that most of my clients choose therapy when they have utilized and exhausted all coping tools and problem solving strategies. As therapist it is my role to facilitate the increase of both coping tools and problem solving skills.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 60174, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 60174 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 60174 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 60174

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 60174 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 60174 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 60174 or family therapy in 60174.
