"Life can bring difficulties in many forms, from daily stresses and significant transitions to conflicts in relationships. Often previous coping strategies no longer work and it becomes essential to develop more adaptive ways of handling emotional and/or relational distress. We do this together in a collaborative therapy relationship where the goals are defined by your problem areas and desires for improvement. The process includes strategies to suit your needs. I use an interpersonal approach to therapy but also include cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic therapy. It's a privilege to be a part of this process with my clients."

Ever wonder sometimes what's it all for and why you're still living? Many people ask themselves these questions everyday, but do nothing about it. You are not alone! There is help. You've come to the right place! People sometimes develop unhealthy ways of living due to their past experiences of being abused, hurt or traumatized.

"I believe many life struggles are due to our attempts to adapt in ways that don't seem to work. Emotional distress is often caused by factors outside our awareness. These factors limit the range of possible ways to live successful lives. We try to help ourselves by using various creative strategies and sometimes discover we can succeed only with the assistance of someone who knows how to help. A close relationship with a skilled professional sensitive to and who understands human challenges is crucial to discovering new ways of being and relating.

"I believe that as we evolve and grow, our connections with ourselves, others and the world around us can become deeper and more fulfilling. However, when we are under stress, in a relationship crisis, or feel anxious or depressed, our connections to our loved ones and to ourselves are limited. We may be unable to communicate, feel angry, lack energy and feel overwhelmed. In order to relieve life's pressures, it is important to slow down, and become more self-aware--reconnecting with ourselves once again. Counseling fosters trust, and is a process that promotes growth and change. I also work closely with a PT for Mind + Body work."

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.

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.
