I utilize a psychodynamic and strengths based model of treatment.
Reaching out for help takes courage. It means you’re able to admit that you don’t have all the answers and have the strength to acknowledge you’re struggling. It’s ok if you don’t know where to begin. We can start with where you are and together work toward where you want to be. I view therapy as an integrative and collaborative process that is grounded in the human capacity for change. The goal of our therapeutic alliance is to develop insight and transformative growth to allow for healing, resulting in a more enriched and abundant life. I believe it is during our most vulnerable moments that we are most open to insight and change

I draw from Psychodynamic Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Health Coaching.
If you feel depressed, anxious, suffer from low self-esteem, or seem disconnected from your life, it can be hard just to start the day. You might struggle to find motivation in all areas of your life, have difficulty building or enjoying relationships, or have a hard time imagining a brighter future. Depression, anxiety, and trauma make it hard to connect to your strengths and cope with life. I specialize in helping my clients connect with their strengths, develop compassion for themselves, and increase their resilience. Why wait any longer to start your journey to well-being?

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is reach out and make that phone call for support. When a part of you realizes the issues or struggles are beginning to feel too overwhelming to manage alone. Although it may not feel like it at the time this is your inner strength that has always been there wanting to guide you forward on your path... Maybe you may feel stuck in certain areas of your life and wish to move forward but are unsure of how to do that. Or you have placed the needs of others before your own. Perhaps at times you might even feel unworthy of help. This is the time to invest in yourself and your potential.

Life sure has a way of hijacking our plans. That unexpected event that turned your whole world upside down in the blink of an eye. The relationship that felt absolutely perfect in the beginning. The anxiety that seems to follow you everywhere you go. Sleepless nights are becoming the norm, and it wasn’t supposed to be this way. As messy as life gets at times, none of us are equipped to do this alone. We all go through times when we need a safe place to figure things out, get a handle on life, and even allow ourselves to be vulnerable.

Relationships are complicated. Some relationships take so much energy that you start to wonder if they're even worth the effort. This may apply to a spouse, significant other, or even a parent. A relationship that once felt love, now feels painful and exhausting. Maybe you're finding yourself full of anxiety or feelings of depression, and it all seems to lead back to this one person. . . Who you love. It's time to get therapy for yourself, so you can get a handle on these feelings, figure out what to do next, and start healing.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy in Lake Zurich, 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.
