"I pride myself on meeting my clients where they are, and working collaboratively with each of my clients and couples. We all at times go through periods when processing, whether towards change or healing, becomes necessary. I hope to make that process a bit more comfortable, so that you are not alone, and also to help you move through your journey with integrity and intention. Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths."

Or maybe therapy has been helpful in the past and you're looking for a tune up. As uncertain that first step may seem, with the right fit it may open up possibilities for you and set you on a new path."

"In my experience people seek treatment because they are struggling to bear adversity and to engage their lives. Symptoms express efforts to manage and communicate overwhelming emotions. For example, anxiety and depression are coded messages requiring translation. Psychotherapy provides an opportunity to bring what is unbearable or confusing to another person so that over time it can be tolerated, understood, and situated in its proper context. Through learning more about your resources, vulnerabilities, and customary adaptations to stress, you can exercise more freedom in the choices you make."

You may be feeling stuck, worried, anxious or depressed in ways that affect your social, school or professional relationships, color social interactions, or deter you from reaching goals or being the person you want to be. These difficulties may derive from ways of coping that were essential in dealing with important figures or circumstances earlier in your life.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Lake View, 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 Lake View, Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues.
