"It may be difficult to describe an ideal client. Clients may experience distresses currently, as well as possibly from the past. So, all persons who live with distress and are interested in resolving their troubles, learning more about themselves, finding solutions that work for them, and learning how to feel good are ideal. Among the issues in which I specialize are mood disorders, anxiety disorders, issues related to identity and self-value/worth, and issues related to relationships."

"I recognize that starting therapy is often a time when one is most vulnerable but also determined about a need for change. It is important that a therapist responds with an offer of a welcoming and safe, yet challenging, space for growth. I have 25+ years of experience treating anxiety, depression, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, grief/loss, trauma, and adjustment reactions. My therapeutic approach is psychodynamic and relational. I am curious about my clients, their current circumstances, and life stories. I do not approach presenting problems uniformly, but understand each client and each therapy as unique. "

"Have you ever felt stuck while in a relationship or confused about who you are or where you want to be in your life? Do parts of you feel lost and insecure while other parts of you are so ready to change and give up old habits? These different parts of us may feel pressure from family, friends, work, school, and society to fit a mold of who we are supposed to be as a person. We may even put the most pressure on ourselves to be in control, strive for perfection, or please others. Yet, deep down we may feel empty, out of control, anxious, or inauthentic. You are not alone.

"Most of us seek help when the ways we have learned to cope are no longer working and we are in pain. Some strategies for survival -- like using alcohol or other drugs to manage moods, or keeping silent when one needs to speak -- may have been needed earlier in life but in adulthood are no longer effective. Working to change is hard, and I believe a therapist needs to be attentive, accepting, and curious to help clients untangle their struggles. It's important to really hear someone's story fully, to listen hard and well and help make sense of it, and then helping them imagine new ways of being."

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

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