"Finding the right therapist is essential in one's journey toward overcoming obstacles. I believe counseling is a collaborative and creative process where we join together to establish the change you desire. I utilize a direct, honest, and genuine communication style in our relationship. My approach combines psychotherapy and the use of experiential therapy as a means of building communication, trust, and decision-making through individual and family treatment. My treatment also involves the partnership of animal assisted therapy with my Labrador Retriever."

Maybe your health has taken an unexpected turn and you feel unsure how to redefine yourself and sense of identity. You question how to get back on track and if you can. Living with a challenging relationship or health condition can make you feel like you've tried everything and nothing is working. You may feel like you're the only person who has faced your specific struggle and aren't sure what to do.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 60093 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 60093 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 60093 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 60093 or family therapy in 60093.
