I work best with clients who are troubled by anxiety, depression, relationship issues, losses or trauma, and life transition issues. I provide individual and family therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. I use a variety of treatment techniques including cognitive, psychodynamic, and client-centered therapies as well as behavior management strategies. My research on coping with traumatic life events has prepared me well to work with clients who have experienced trauma and crisis. A life crisis can be debilitating at first, but can lead to a search for meaning and dramatic new growth. It is exciting for me to accompany clients in this process!

Change is possible with the willingness to explore one's inner life and contend with the conflicts inhibiting you from a greater sense of freedom.

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.

Does your child seem "off" and "not like themselves?" Do they have a hard time calming down? Do they seem angry or worried all of the time? It can be scary and frustrating when you notice your child isn't living with ease and joy. You've tried all of the behavioral approaches, read all the books, and yet your child continues to struggle. You wish your child was available for connection and playfulness but there's something getting in the way. Your child might be feeling one way and showing something completely different to you and you want to better understand what they are going through. I hear you and I see you.

At the core of my practice is the belief that all people are capable of growth and hold the resiliency to move towards this direction. We all come into life with our own experiences that have led into our current narratives and finding ways to rewrite or reframe those narratives can be difficult. Through a relational and attachment focused lens, the therapeutic space can be used as a vehicle to help identify behaviors, patterns, and even coping skills that may no longer suit you. My approach is to work with you holistically, and understanding the importance of holding curiosity and non-judgement as we sift through the work together.

For many years, I have been helping my clients to lead happier and more fulfilling lives. One of my main psychotherapy approaches is cognitive-behavioral therapy, a well-established, efficient and effective form of psychotherapy. It directly targets the patient's thinking, and behavior, patterns that are producing psychological problems, and teaches the patient to change those patterns. In marital and family therapy, I help the parties to communicate better with one another and to reach agreements acceptable to all. If the children have behavior problems, I often help the parents to become more effective disciplinarians.

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 Park or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Oak Park, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Oak Park.
