The therapy approach is personalized using different therapy modalities, including CBT, Solution Focused Therapy, and a personal eclectic approach.
Personal growth and soul-searching take courage. Therapy is a journey, and I am ready to begin that journey with those courageous clients. It takes courage to seek help and sit with a stranger, the therapist, and talk about what troubles you, what motivates you and what you love. Counseling is about you and for you. No matter the age and stage in your life seek help if you feel you need it. At times, what is going on in our lives seems insurmountable. Having someone to provide encouragement, listen without judgement, and helping you set goals and realistic expectations can ease the burden.

I use the Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) approach because it’s so effective.
I work with kids and teens because I find them remarkable. It’s a privilege watching them persist to overcome anxiety or challenges, reclaim their lives and make meaningful changes. Every single client teaches me something. As a parent, I understand how hard it is to see your child struggle with anxiety. Whether it’s academic stress, difficulty making decisions, social awkwardness, or worry about the future, they face a lot of pressures. The good news is that anxiety is highly treatable. In just a handful of sessions, I help kids and teens reduce stress and build resilience so they can approach life’s challenges with confidence.

My ideal client is someone who is committed to working toward real and lasting change. Someone willing to learn that change does not just come from a behavioral switch. Real growth happens when a person's heart engages in the process and understands, internally, first. Each person needs to participate in their counseling; not just be an observer/consumer. I am committed to make each session a safe environment to learn the how and why of engaging in counseling; what it will require to achieve this; and then walk alongside with each client to make these empowering transformations.

Behavior is the universal language for kids, what is your child trying to tell you? Maybe you've noticed a stomachache happening every morning this week, they're more riled up at night & putting off bedtime, or lashing out when you remind them to complete a simple task. They might be seeking more reassurance & asking a lot of “what if” questions, or isolating & withdrawing from friends. You're taking on more to avoid a meltdown, but nothing's working. You’re doing the best you can, yet you feel it’s not enough, & parenting is starting to feel draining.. and just imagine how it feels like for them.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Barrington, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.
