Anxiety and depression impact your work, relationships, and personal goals. But with support, it is completely possible to feel better and manage these often-debilitating symptoms. I specialize in assisting adults with anxiety/depression to manage their symptoms and reduce the impact they have on their lives. This includes women who suffer from cyclical anxiety, depression, or anger in relation to their menstrual cycles (aka PMS/PMDD.)

Square pegs and round holes; We spend a large portion of our lives wondering who we are and where we are headed. Trying to reconcile who we believe we are and what others want us to be. We experience shame about our identities and what we enjoy. Finding ourselves trying to fit ourselves into the outer expectations, only to find we feel less connected, less clear and less deserving. This is the human experience. We share it. You deserve a therapist that connects to, sees, hears, respects and appreciates you as your authentic self.

Often times the first step to feeling better is simply the act of being heard and feeling truly understood. I have found continual reward in helping people navigate the most challenging and stressful times of their lives. I strongly believe that the quality of the therapeutic relationship directly effects an individual’s healing process, thus my primary goal is focused on developing and maintaining a safe, open, empathetic and trusting dynamic with each client I work with. I establish this with honesty and transparency, by remaining authentic to my own natural counseling style and through genuine, meaningful interactions.

I respect your desire to want to be honest with yourself. I consider trust and warmth to be foundational principles in how I practice, yet I know trust can sometimes be a journey. A certain level of disillusionment occurs when your external world doesn't match your internal one. Restless and intrusive thoughts may be hindering your everyday joys or harsh flashbacks affecting your presence and sense of safety. A certain level of growth is wanted, but the pathway how to get there may seem unclear. This is where I can help. Building upon your already-existing skills and resilience, I work with you towards healing and purpose.

Have you ever heard “You don’t seem like yourself lately is something going on with you?” Or maybe someone suggested that you should talk to someone. If that is the case congrats on getting to this point. Sometimes we think that we have to be the strong one and handle things on our own. Or sometimes we rely on our friends/ family to hold our emotional pain. Talking to someone who is not your friend/ family can be very helpful. And that’s where I come in. I am Dr. Allen and I strive to empower, uplift and improve my clients’ daily lives. So if you find yourself worrying, feeling blue, irritable or doubting yourself, give me call.

From a systemic, psycho-dynamic foundation, I focus on past & present relationships and how behavioral patterns evolve over time. I believe the therapeutic relationship provides a safe space for the client to explore, uncover, and discover emotions. This allows the client to build trust, to take emotional risks, to challenge maladaptive coping in order to create new, more effective ways of managing painful emotions.

My intention is to offer a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals to work through feelings and situations that may be uncomfortable, painful or overwhelming. Participating in therapy for the first time might feel intimidating. The stigma around seeking help can also be a deterrent for those thinking about pursuing therapy. Attending therapy is not a sign of weakness; rather, it shows enormous strength and vulnerability. I operate primarily from a psychodynamic and relational framework, incorporating other perspectives as indicated. I also practice from a trauma-informed lens. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming.

"Loving ourselves through the process of owning our story is the bravest thing we'll ever do." ~Brene Brown~ Have you found life hasn't turned out the way you expected? Sometimes that can be a wonderful thing, and other times that reality can be frustrating to accept or work through. I believe those frustrations, when left unaddressed, can and often do lead to feelings of depression and/or anxiety, and can also put a strain on relationships. I believe therapy should be a safe space to give voice to those frustrations and an opportunity for healing.

We often go through life with blinders on, forging ahead to the next milestone, until something happens that throws us off kilter. Sometimes it is loss – loss of a job, loved one, or sense of self. Sometimes these road bumps come from new additions – birth, adoption, new relationships, career opportunities. I view these road bumps as opportunities to learn more about yourself: your values, desires, capabilities, and most of all, your resilience.

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.
