"Sharing one's thoughts and feelings with a complete stranger can seem awkward and bizarre. My goal early on in therapy is to make the experience feel as comfortable as possible by creating a space without judgement and aiming to understand you as a whole person, rather than simply a set of symptoms or a diagnosis. I believe that we all have the capacity to overcome life's many obstacles and live closer to our fullest potential. Although therapy is ultimately very serious, I use humor whenever possible so it doesn't feel like you're talking to a robot."

"Imagine waking up tomorrow and all of today's "problems" are solved. What does life then look like? Therapists employ this thought experiment in order to help client's establish specific therapy goals. Inevitably, the desire for cultivating meaningful relationships and connections emerge as themes. Disruptive childhoods, social anxiety, or lack of emotional understanding among others all play a role in feeling disconnected. Most clients resonate with feeling depressed and anxious over a period of time. In the broader context of relationships, learning healthier ways to connect through effective therapy can provide the antidote. "

Are you dealing with relationship difficulties, struggles to balance career and personal life, grief, loss or trauma, adapting to health problems, or searching for personal meaning in life? Sorting out and talking through these issues, along with developing adaptive coping strategies can make a positive difference. As the therapeutic process develops, you may also explore your personal history in relation to current stressors, and develop a greater sense of self understanding and discover ways you want to tweak some "old ways of doing things.""

School Issues (Academic Underachievement, Academic Counseling) Therapists
Students underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Motivational problems, ADHD, and learning disabilities can all be a challenge to any parent. Child therapists, child psychologists, or school psychologists in Chicago can help to assess a child's needs and offer much needed help.

Academic counselors in Chicago help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students). Additionally, Chicago Therapists work with nonverbal learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and reading difficulties.

Children with problems at school, or who are failing at school in Chicago all have specific and unique instructional needs. A good Chicago academic counselor or school counselor will provide the individualized attention and support a student needs to succeed.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues.

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.
