You are important, you are deserving, you are enough. I am passionate about supporting women live and understand their authentic selves throughout the transitions of life. The perinatal period, especially, can be a time of vulnerability, change, and unpredictability. Depression, anxiety, and stress can emerge even when life may also feel thrilling, joyous, and transformative. You are deserving of a space to explore the thoughts and emotions, the hopes and dreams, the challenges and transformations that can become pronounced during this time.

My role as your therapist is not to take the pain away, but rather to hold the safe space for you to process your pain and experiences. Through this process, I provide insight and shine light on the inner knowing that is already in you. The goal is to empower you so you can learn to tolerate your own pain with compassion and care, allowing for healing. That is where the power lies, the power to love yourself so that you are able to relate to others with the same compassion and love. I guide you back to your inner voice to cultivate meaningful relationships. We are always evolving, which is a creative, spiritual process.

I specialize in working with members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community who are looking to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships. Many of my clients come to therapy to process topics related to grief, trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, impulse control, gender identity, sexuality, and sexual health. I help my clients to be able to recognize their emotions in order to cope with the stress and discomfort of everyday life. I strive to create a space that is anti-racist, body-neutral, sex-and-kink-positive, and queer-friendly so that my clients are comfortable and safe exploring their vulnerabilities.

Your life isn't what you want right now. You want a peaceful life with strong long-lasting relationships where you support one another and feel safe. Instead, everything feels so fragile and limited. You admit, that you feel things intensely and oftentimes your anger is more than those closest to you can handle. The life you want seems so far off. Maybe you’ve tried therapy before, but nothing seemed to change. It is possible to work through the difficulties that keep tripping you up in relationships and your interactions with others. It possible to greet each day with a renewed sense of confidence and purpose.

You matter. It is a true privilege to work with each of my clients. My practice is eclectic: some clients are working through trauma issues, while others are addressing difficulties coping with life transitions, grief, relationship issues, anxiety and depression, or emotional instability. Regardless of your reason for seeking therapy, your feelings and experiences matter - you are important to me. I don't see you as broken, instead that you are not satisfied with how you are coping with the often complex and contradictory world we live in.

It’s hard to put yourself out there…To allow yourself to be vulnerable…To really connect with others. When you do, you practically tie yourself up in knots replaying what you said – what you did. You make promises to yourself that somehow next time you’ll do things differently…that you’ll feel different….that you won’t be full of regret and shame. Regardless of whether you spend most of your time at school or work, Chicago can be a hard place to get your footing. Looking around you, everyone seems connected. Everyone seems confident. When will you stop second-guessing yourself?

Traumatic experiences are like tangled knots of grief, shame and guilt, silenced thoughts and emotions, and triggers that can affect daily living. However, when processed and unraveled, those experiences can help us to develop an empowered life. My passion is to work with individuals who have experienced trauma, grief, and other difficulties. I especially enjoy working with those who have been through childhood and sexual trauma and abuse. Witnessing individuals free themselves from the negative influences of past perpetrators brings me joy. And I believe that to be invited into any area of trauma or grief, trust must be earned.

Nobody has a life free from pain. No matter how many times you give yourself the pep talk that everyone struggles with mental health, you may still have the nagging sense that others have things “figured out” and you don’t. The narrative of “my struggles make me less of a person than others who seem to have it all together,” is a lie. This thought has the power to make you feel lonely, weak, hopeless, and rob you of your sense of self-worth. The truth is life presents all of us with challenges that can come out of nowhere and are often unwarranted.

Why does it always feel like the to-do list is never-ending and what’s done is never quite enough? You are diligent about keeping on top of things and it’s gotten you pretty far. Yet, you find yourself asking “I’m running myself ragged for THIS?” Work-life balance? Who has time for that! Well, you are not alone. Like you, the individuals I work with tend to be busy, successful, professionals who feel stressed, anxious, and unsatisfied and struggle with burnout and imposter syndrome. They seem like they have it all together but live in fear of dropping the ball while trying to juggle all the other ones in the air. Sound familiar?

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 60604, this list of teletherapists 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 60604 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 60604 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 60604. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 60604

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 60604 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 60604 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 60604 or family therapy in 60604.
