I specialize in supporting folks experiencing stress, anxiety, and impacts of trauma. Therapy with me feels warm, real, and dynamic.
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Chicago, IL
I utilize an integrative approach to trauma therapy, including mindfulness techniques, somatic interventions, EMDR, and Internal Family Systems.
I am trained in utilizing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, including via Telehealth, by the EMDR international Association (EMDRIA). Per EMDRIA.org, "Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders."
Good therapists go to therapy, and I wish we normalized this more. I love working with therapists who are newer to the field, as well as more seasoned folks. I am also experienced working with clinicians experiencing burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma.
I specialize in work around codependency and family of origin issues. I am familiar with more specific 12-step recovery programs around codependency, including Al-Anon, Coda, SLAA, and Adult Children of Alcoholics.
I am trained in utilizing EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy), an empirically-supported treatment modality for addressing symptoms of PTSD. Please visit EMDRIA.com for more information. I offer longer sessions (90 minutes) for conducting EMDR therapy if applicable.
I am trained in I-CBT, an approach that is helpful in treating OCD symptoms.
