The journey called life can be very painful. It has been one of the greatest rewards of my life to see people who have been negatively impacted by relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and other mental health concerns turn their situation around . The power to change our life course, habits, and perceptions sometimes appears to be a never ending struggle. I indeed applaud you for reaching out because it reaffirms that people are not giving up and giving in to their situations.

We live in a culture where we deal with daily stress and sometimes trauma based on our marginalized identities, whether they be race, gender, sexual orientation, class, or ability level. Combine that with the fast pace of everyday life and the ongoing effects of climate change, and it becomes easy to feel overwhelmed and lose our balance. Having been in practice for 15 years and tuned into the ways in which our culture affects us all, I am ideally suited to help. Reaching out to a therapist can be scary. I work to create an open, judgement-free environment where you can feel comfortable and we will work on your problems together.

Teletherapy Offered...People are not their diagnoses even though these labels can sometimes be informative. I prefer to get to know you. Specifically, what do you want out of therapy? What is currently working for you, not working? What brings you in to see me in this moment? I believe that therapy is not only about reducing our suffering, but also finding meaning and fulfillment in our lives. It is about getting to know ourselves, parts that we love, parts that we are afraid of, parts that we don't yet understand. People are also not things that need to be "fixed", instead, this is a place for healing, self-compassion, and growth.

25 years of experience in private practice as a Marriage and Family Therapist has given me the ability to create a warm and safe environment for change. Would you like to make changes in your marriage, family, children or work environment? Sometimes it is helpful to ask what the problem is, rather than why it is a problem. If you know what the problem is, it can be more helpful to solve. We use that philosophy in Brief Therapy, which can be effective for busy, active families and marriages in crises.

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

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