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.

Therapeutic support and guidance can be an essential part of getting you through the multiplication of stressors over the past year. For some the recent losses, changes & uncertainty has resulted in loneliness, depression & anxiety for the future. For others this crucible has exacerbated problems that existed before. We are all struggling as COVID has forced us to sit still with ourselves & ask the essential existential questions of life. I would look forward to being part of the process to understand yourself better & navigate this time period to attain a sense of wellness & growth.

I have a passion for assisting my clients through this process. Self-care is a practice we rarely exercise. You cannot care for others until you take care of yourself.

The ideal client for me is someone who is ready for something different. It’s normal to feel fear when stepping into change and I work with my clients so they don’t have to be stopped or dismayed by said fears or doubts. The therapeutic process involves a willingness to learn and being open to outside and differing perspectives. I’m passionate about partnering with clients who are willing to work together to achieve their goals.

Challenges arise throughout life. At times you may feel stuck, lost, misunderstood, or disconnected. This can lead to anxiety, sadness, and frustration. I work with young adults and teens in various transitions in their lives who are struggling, and believe relief from such negative places is possible. Maybe you're trying to navigate relationships with family, friends, or co-workers; or trying to establish a healthy personal or professional relationship. Maybe you're trying to manage different personalities at work. Or, maybe you're a new parent trying to manage your changed relationship with your partner, and raise a child.

Life can be beautiful, complicated, and messy all at the same time. The road at times can be riddled by twists, turns, and detours you were not expecting. It would be nice if life was a straight path to fulfillment and happiness but life is not linear. Perhaps you found yourself starting over after a recent break-up? Or, you experienced the loss of a loved one. Maybe even faced with an unexpected medical diagnosis or have been questioning your purpose in life. Whether you’re prepared or not, life has a way of making you feel the challenges you are faced with are too difficult to overcome.

Finding a therapist can feel overwhelming. You probably sense that it’s finally time to reach out for help, but feel unsure of where to begin. Perhaps you feel uncertain if there is anyone out there who can understand, let alone help. I believe that the strength of the therapeutic relationship directly impacts an individual’s capacity for change, and thus my first priority is to cultivate a safe, open, and compassionate relationship with each of my clients. My style of therapy is supportive, lively, and direct. My goal is to help you learn to trust yourself and feel less weighed down by self doubt.

Self Esteem Therapists
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in Chicago and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.
