"You've been trying to find your way back to your old self again, but are struggling and stuck. Something has to change. For some reason, it seems impossible to do things well enough at work or at school or at home with your family, maybe even with a new baby. You're feeling disconnected and worried about letting people down. It's gotten really hard to keep up. Being stretched so thin and constantly fighting to tread water is taking its toll on your patience, too. Every little thing is irritating. It feels so hopeless to not be able to just pull it together and be more like everyone else around you, especially if you're a new mom."

"I like to think of therapy as the search for balance in one's life. For many, it begins with seeking greater understanding about one's concerns and situation. With that understanding, a new narrative of life's experiences and meaning can be found. The understanding is the first part of change; the rest (which may sometimes be the longer part) is a process of working with self-compassion towards that balance. Although my undergraduate education was in Creative Writing and Fine Arts at the University of Michigan, the most creative process I've encountered has been psychotherapy."

"Welcome! Most people are resilient, most of the time, in facing life's problems. But there comes a time when almost everyone needs help. Stressful life events, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and other pressures are sometimes overwhelming. It's a strength to ask for help when you need it. I can help you explore in-depth understanding and insight, or develop strategies to cope with stress and change. Or both. I work with adults with depression, anxiety and panic, work and career issues, relationship issues, ADHD, bipolar disorder, stress management, separation and divorce, grief, traumatic stress, and suicide prevention."

"Due to the ever increasing demands placed on us and our time, situations can arise that overwhelm our ability to cope. As we struggle to deal with these challenges, we can begin to feel anxious, sad, and even depressed. I believe that all people have an innate ability to navigate through these difficult times. However, we can become stuck, losing the creativity and humor needed to manage these challenges."

"People often search for a therapist when they feel like they've tried everything and it's just not working well enough. It can be hard to see a situation clearly when you've been immersed in it for so long. I help people to take a step back, so they can see things more objectively. Through psychotherapy, people can find internal strength and resources they didn't know were there. They can then start to see new perspectives, both of themselves and their situations, and can begin to make changes."

"The experiences of loss and disappointment that people don’t want to think about, remember, or talk about often come back to haunt them in their current lives. It is just those experiences that clients thought they had escaped and left behind in the past that ambush them at the most inopportune time, seemingly out of nowhere. I believe it is when people are able to confront the shame and guilt of their private phantoms, when they can understand and flesh out sufferings that have for too long been borne alone, that they may free themselves finally from the invisible loyalties that compel them to repeat the past. By uncovering and mourning the sources of despair and fatalism that had secretly pervaded their lives, clients can face the future with a greater sense of freedom and renewed hope for a better life."

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

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