A break-up, the loss of a loved one, anxiety, or adjusting to a life transition are common issues addressed in therapy. Most people go through difficult times; therapy helps you to gain better insight into your struggles and make lasting changes. Therapy can truly change how you see yourself, how you feel, and how you experience life. I work to create a judgment free, safe environment using a strength-based, holistic approach to meet your individual needs. I have extensive training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), though this is just one of the tools in my toolbox. I believe therapy is a collaborative process that is tailored

Whether this is your first time seeking out counseling or not, I know finding a therapist who "fits" can be a daunting experience. I understand that it can be difficult to ask for help. We all, however, need support and guidance sometimes. My clients often give the feedback that they feel I am nonjudgmental, approachable, a good listener, but also give helpful feedback. Clients also say they feel a 'connection,' and can open up easily. I am in private practice, so when you call, you know you will be speaking directly to me. I hope to hear from you!

Our sessions might be one-on-one, or you might choose to include your spouse or other family member(s). We will figure that out together!

As a therapist, I offer my patients a supportive environment that fosters accountability so that a person can succeed in changing themselves, or aspects of their lives. Using an insight-oriented directive approach to therapy, I provide clients with the opportunity to accept change, gain control, and the ability to expand one's beliefs, thoughts, and possibilities. I believe that change is a significant and intimate aspect of someone's life. It is my goal to inspire others to grow, and to help people recognize that they are much more than their presenting symptoms, their behavior, and their past choices.

Her previous experience includes working with anxiety, depression, life transition, trauma, domestic violence & multicultural issues. Arushi’s approach is to view each guest holistically & individually, understanding that we can all go through similar situations but experience them differently. She believes that therapy may look different from guest to guest, but we can all benefit from the extra support.

We can explore early childhood experiences or address traumatic events and how to move forward while challenging negative thoughts and beliefs along the way. With the treatment centered around the client’s needs, I also acknowledge intersections between race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and other cultural aspects of the client.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Illinois, 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.

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

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