Therapeutic support and guidance can be an essential part of getting you through the multiplication of stressors over the past year. For some the recent losses, changes & uncertainty has resulted in loneliness, depression & anxiety for the future. For others this crucible has exacerbated problems that existed before. We are all struggling as COVID has forced us to sit still with ourselves & ask the essential existential questions of life. I would look forward to being part of the process to understand yourself better & navigate this time period to attain a sense of wellness & growth.

"Mental strength is not the ability to stay out of the darkness; it's the ability to sit present in the darkness knowing the light will shine again”, (ADHDsuperhero). I have a passion for assisting my clients through this process. Self-care is a practice we rarely exercise. You cannot care for others until you take care of yourself. Make the decision to take time for you; you are worth it!

Challenges arise throughout life. At times you may feel stuck, lost, misunderstood, or disconnected. This can lead to anxiety, sadness, and frustration. I work with young adults and teens in various transitions in their lives who are struggling, and believe relief from such negative places is possible. Maybe you're trying to navigate relationships with family, friends, or co-workers; or trying to establish a healthy personal or professional relationship. Maybe you're trying to manage different personalities at work. Or, maybe you're a new parent trying to manage your changed relationship with your partner, and raise a child.

Finding a therapist can feel overwhelming. You probably sense that it’s finally time to reach out for help, but feel unsure of where to begin. Perhaps you feel uncertain if there is anyone out there who can understand, let alone help. I believe that the strength of the therapeutic relationship directly impacts an individual’s capacity for change, and thus my first priority is to cultivate a safe, open, and compassionate relationship with each of my clients. My style of therapy is supportive, lively, and direct. My goal is to help you learn to trust yourself and feel less weighed down by self doubt.

You want to take the next step in your career or perhaps you want to ask an acquaintance out on a date but the fear of change, failure and self-doubt are holding you back. You have brilliant ideas that you want to share with others but you hesitate to act or speak because you are tormented by thoughts of "I'm not good enough." When you reach out to your friends, your colleagues, or your partner you feel unheard or misunderstood.

If you are continually questioning your worthiness or are struggling with chronic feelings of toxic shame, self-doubt, or questions about whether you belong, you are not alone. I believe that healing occurs in compassionate and emotionally attuned community with another where one can begin to metabolize what may have felt like too much or too little.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Chicago, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Chicago. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Chicago

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