Anxiety and depression impact your work, relationships, and personal goals. But with support, it is completely possible to feel better and manage these often-debilitating symptoms. I specialize in assisting adults with anxiety/depression to manage their symptoms and reduce the impact they have on their lives. This includes women who suffer from cyclical anxiety, depression, or anger in relation to their menstrual cycles (aka PMS/PMDD.)

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.

Are you tired of racing thoughts and feeling anxious? Do you find your energy being used to plan the future, control the outcomes, and worry about the worst possibilities, as opposed to make meaningful changes in life? You are likely experiencing anxiety. Anxiety can feel very tiring and could prevent you from experiencing life as you would prefer to. You may also be experiencing anxiety as a reaction to grief, trauma, depression, substance use, chronic illnesses, identity issues, cross-cultural issues, and relational difficulties.

I am sex-positive, kink-affirming, LGBT+/GSM-affirming, and ENM/CNM/poly-affirming. I work with clients to notice, give attention, and slow down when the world wants us to ignore, distract, and speed up. By gently exploring family patterns and our ways of being in relationship, we can come to intriguing conclusions about ourselves and others. By cultivating and accessing community, self-compassion, and intimacy (both physical and emotional), we can heal from trauma, and lift ourselves out of even the darkest places.

What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in Chicago from time to time. Chronic insomnia, however, is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up too early. If it takes you thirty minutes or more to fall asleep, or you're awake for thirty minutes or more during the night at least three times a week-for a month or more-you're likely suffering from insomnia.

Insomnia has major effects on mood as well as alertness. It is also a classic symptom of depression.

The most effective treatments for chronic insomnia are behavioral techniques that eliminate sleep anxiety and allow the body's own sleep cycle to kick in. It may require as little as doing nothing. But Sleep specialists in Chicago or therapists who specialize in sleep in Chicago, or simply a Chicago sleep therapist, can help. Likewise, insomnia specialists in Chicago or therapists who specialize in insomnia in Chicago, or simply a Chicago insomnia therapist, can help.

Sleep disorders may include sleep apnea, narcolepsy or simply chronic snoring.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Chicago. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Chicago

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.
