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.

Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis are opportunities for children and adults to work through the challenges of anxiety and depression, as well as traumas such as loss or abuse, and the defeating patterns of human interaction that result in problems in interpersonal relationships. Both modes of treatment provide opportunities for children and adults to experience improvement in their abilities to consolidate their talents and skills and to work more effectively toward their life goals.

The longer I practice as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, the more my work has come to focus on empowerment. Sometimes people and systems hold us back, sometimes we hold ourselves back, and far too often we sell ourselves short. I can help you navigate these problems as you work toward becoming the best version of yourself. Everyone’s journey and their needs in psychotherapy are different and I don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. However, I generally view the goal of psychotherapy as getting relief from your most pressing problems while developing the insights and skills to help you manage long after therapy has ended.

All of us struggle at different times in our life. We often feel stuck in our current state or situation and wonder if this is how life has to be.

My belief is that we all have the power to limit the chaos of our mind through developing a strong and loving connection to ourselves.

Stories have always fascinated me. They have the power to move us emotionally, to educate and instruct, to entertain us, and to cultivate true compassion and empathy through the act of sharing a story with another. They are also a powerful vehicle for how we perceive, interpret, define and live our lives, yet sometimes it can be easy to forget that we can be the authors of our story, not just a character proceeding along some previously determined narrative.

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.

I work with people who are experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression, sadness and anger. They are in unfulfilling relationships or Have difficulty making relationships. The situations they find themselves in can be of short or long duration. Whether from external sources or more internally driven, helping them express their feelings and connecting them to their source allows individuals to bring more objectivity to their perspective. From this vantage point comes the ability to create new approaches to viewing themselves and situations. When helpful I give very concrete practical advice. From this comes change.

My clients are hard-working and desire a better quality of life. They are willing to be challenged, trying new techniques to move forward. I use information about normal developmental transitions to move people when they are stuck. The focus is on identity and spirituality as themes I weave into my work. This does not mean organized religion, rather concepts such as connections, acceptance, peace, and letting go. If you choose to combine religion and spiritualuity, for your own growth, that is your choice.

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.
