As an EMDR-trained therapist, I want to help you heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences that I believe are the root cause of anxiety, depression, PTSD, addictions, and relationship issues. EMDR has demonstrated remarkable success for people who have experienced trauma. Trauma doesn't just include going through violent, frightening or distressing events, but it could also include experiences such as loss of a loved one or a job, being abandoned, shamed and humiliated, bullied, rejected, threatened, feeling trapped or unsafe.

Welcome! I believe that one of the essential ingredients of change and transformative psychotherapy is the relationship between the individual and the therapist. Feeling understood and comfortable not only helps reduce one's symptoms, encouraging self-acceptance, but also leads toward deeper work which promotes lasting change and a deeper experience of one's unique self.

As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I work with couples who have become disconnected in their relationship.
I've worked in the mental health field since 1980. I look at therapy as a collaborative enterprise between client and therapist, with the aim of improving quality of life. I value a gentle, accepting way of looking at life problems, with an emphasis on understanding, rather than judging or condemning, oneself and others. I value curiosity as a valuable asset in the therapeutic process and I enjoy working with clients who can be curious about themselves and their lives. I work with the client to identify new skills, behaviors, or attitudes that can facilitate desired changes.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Crystal Lake relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Crystal Lake.
