I have been a psychotherapist in Chicagoland area for 7 years. I have experience with individuals across the lifespan providing assistance through individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, crisis interventions and couples counseling. My clinical experience supporting individuals managing mental health issues related to:
Generalized Anxiety Disorder
Families adjusting with Divorce
Caring for Aging Family Members
Strategies for Understanding Personal Learning Style
Understanding New Diagnoses and Chronic Symptom Management
Supporting you to find out what works
I offer services for individuals, couples and families. I focus on understanding what your needs are and work with you to determine goals for addressing issues. My clinical style is heavily influenced by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) when identifying skills you already use to cope in order to build additional thinking and behaviors to strengthen your ability to manage your life’s stress. The combination of validation and problem solving in this approach align with the therapeutic relationship I seek to create. My approach for couples counseling focuses on strengthen relationships by promoting each partner understanding individual tendencies to seek intimacy and independence. I am influenced by attachment theory, family therapy techniques to connect adult relationships to past experiences with growing up.
My work with children, adolescents and young adults is around understanding the unique capacities of my client’s brain. Working together with clients and families to improve awareness of problem areas in order to find behaviors that promote independence and expression. I have experience working with children as their parents’ face major loss (e.g. death of family member, divorce, chronic health issues). I love supporting families to find successes for their children. The transition toward becoming an adult can be difficult for many of my clients, we work to navigate new ground together.
