I believe that therapy is a gift that we give ourselves, and that it is a healing journey. It is an opportunity to explore the barriers in our lives that keep us from fully expressing our thoughts and feelings, in relationships, and in the world. Our work in therapy results in the ability to live a fuller, richer, and more authentic life. As a therapist, I see myself as a guide on your healing journey. My guidance comes from a grounded place of clinical theory, spirituality, compassion, empathy and caring, but it also includes the strength and honesty that is needed to confront those issues that block personal growth. Through the safety of our therapeutic relationship, you will be free to speak of the current struggles in your life, as well as explore the connection to your history. I will be there as a source of truth, hope, and support, while witnessing the full spectrum of your journey, whether it includes confusion, pain, shame, sadness, and anger or joy, happiness, clarity and serenity. Through this process, you will discover the awareness, skills and behaviors to change your life, for now and the future.

Therapy isn't for people with "issues." Therapy is for people. Period. Therapy is a flashlight switched on by your therapist that can help you see who you are, who you want to be and some of what you'd like to leave behind. It's also a place to experience unconditional positive regard that we so often miss in our everyday interactions with self and others. Therapy is a map or a navigation system that can help you find your way. Therapy rocks! I'm glad you're here, and I hope that I get the chance to help you or your child flip on that flashlight and enjoy this one wild and wonderful life we have. Contact me today to get started!

Do you feel stuck, trapped, dissatisfied? Has motivation become a problem? Are you plagued by worries? You are not alone. We all encounter periods when we feel "boxed in" by life. I believe people seek therapy when they come to a point where they have tried everything they can think of and nothing has worked to their satisfaction. This is not a sign of illness, disorder, or weakness. On the contrary, it is often at this point that a person is on the verge of a new way of seeing themselves, their problems, their life.

Peer Relationships in Glen Ellyn

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Glen Ellyn

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Glen Ellyn

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject.
