We all want to live healthy, engaged lives of meaning and value. As we live, negative events occur which can lead to use feeling "stuck" and miserable. However, I believe that one can choose to live differently, that change can occur for anyone regardless of your age, problems, or circumstances. Therapy with me involves engaging in a meaningful conversation with each other in a safe environment. Part of this change occurs in our establishment of a collaborative relationship emphasizing respect and authenticity. In therapy, we will explore strengths, values, ways of thinking, expression of emotion, and behaving in healthy ways.

Are you living the life you want? Too often, we get caught in the current and tend to go with it rather then fight against it. We avoid change because,generally, it is hard. That avoidance can prevent us from being healthy, happy and secure. If you are not sure if counseling can help you, contact me for a free phone consultation to discuss issues and possible solutions. There are ways to change the things you don't want and live a positive life. I have offices in Oak Brook and Plainfield and work with clients in a safe, confidential environment to assist them in developing the tools to improve their outlook, behavior and mood.

I work with adolescents, teens and adults. In my work with children and teens I strive to create an environment where children and teens feel safe to share their concerns. I work with a wide range of problems of childhood and adolescence. When working with children I will utilize Cognitive Behavioral strategies as well as techniques drawn from Thera-play, art therapy, and sand tray work. In working with adults, I recognize that you are the expert on your own life. Therefore, I will work with you to draw on strengths and skills that you already possess, but may have lost sight of, to help you more effectively address your concerns.

Being in a cycle of unhealthy patterns and not recognizing who you are anymore can create feelings of hopelessness and devastation. Dealing with school, work and relationship stress can be overwhelming. Together, we will work towards reducing the negative intensity. Achieving self-awareness and building self-esteem can help you feel whole again. Change can be difficult, but I strive to help you overcome anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, women’s health issues, unhealthy relationships, and trauma. I also enjoy conducting a variety of neuropsychological assessments and evaluations for pre-surgical psychological clearance.

Sometimes children and adolescents feel sad, anxious, and overwhelmed by changing life situations, which may impact the development of their full academic, emotional and social potential. Sometimes a home can be a seat of conflict instead of refuge, because of stressful situations, such as divorce, financial difficulties, or stage-of-life changes. Understanding and working through the complex emotional issues confronting children, adolescents and their families is the focus of my training and my practice. Our goal in treatment is empowerment through strategies that build resilience, strength and hopeful perspectives.

Oppositional Defiance Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Oak Brook or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Oak Brook, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Oak Brook.
