My approach is anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, uses mindfulness, and is psychodynamic-relational.
I believe that all people have dignity, worth, and the right to live life in a way that brings them joy. Our ability to live joyfully can be limited due to imbalances of power in our world (racism, sexism, homophobia). Because of this we often suffer, and suffering left unaddressed can lead to limiting beliefs and behaviors. These behaviors are usually adopted as a matter of necessity to survive, yet they can keep us from being the most authentic and happy version of ourselves. The therapeutic relationship can heal and transform our lives through affirmation, validation and sustained attention on our thoughts, beliefs and behaviors.

My clinical work is grounded in trauma-informed care integrated with attachment-based interventions.
I am a psychotherapist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois.  I provide individual, couples and family therapy.  Often, people are daunted by the possibility of changing feelings, behaviors, and patterns that may have long histories, or that have resisted previous efforts. I firmly believe therapy offers solid reasons to have hope. Undoubtedly, therapy offers the opportunity to gain a deeper knowledge and acceptance of oneself as well as insight into how one's fears, unacknowledged desires, and conflicts from the past can influence current behavior.

The constant in life is changes always happen. It can be challenging. Our environment and individual needs can come into conflict from time to time. I work well with people who are experiencing challenges in work, relationships, and personal life, trauma history, issues related to gender or sexism, complicated family histories, oppressive experiences, and maybe dealing with cross-cultural issues. Working adults in new environments can find a changed meaning of success. You might be struggling with your recent relocation, relationships, not feeling connected to your new community or miss your culture.

I look forward to meeting you in session! I work in a collaborative way to help my clients understand and cope with present-day stressors as well as get to the root of the issues and trauma that are keeping them feeling stuck or disconnected. I use validation and active listening to make sure clients feel seen, heard, and responded to with resonance. Trying to manage an issue where it seems like no one understands can be a very lonely experience, and sometimes it takes an outside perspective to gain a felt sense of clarity.

To me, therapy is about seeking wholeness; it is a journey of more fully integrating our minds, bodies, & souls. Many of us live trapped in patterns & scripts that weigh us down & that keep us from living full, authentic lives. As a trauma-informed therapist (& former spiritual director), I take into consideration the whole person, noting that past or ongoing traumas, wounds, & injustices shape the way we understand and engage with ourselves and the world. I help clients draw connections between formative past experiences & current ones in order to identify & shift those relational patterns & ongoing struggles.

Teletherapy
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 Illinois, 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 Illinois 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.
