Supporting women who long for true, lasting transformation. If you are ready to commit to some deep work, I am the therapist for you.
Therapist in Illinois
I could list all of the common approaches to treatment in this section, but that doesn't tell you much about my style. I have learned over the years that one of the most important factors in therapy is the genuine trust and connection between client and the therapist. And because of that, I strive to enter each session with mindful presence and real curiosity so that I can get to know YOU. I listen and respond thoughtfully, with kindness and direct feedback when helpful.
Anxiety makes you feel like you have no control over your life. You are having hard time calming worries, that racing mind keeps calling for your attention, the constant feeling on edge is following you everywhere you go. So you are running with the hope that you can escape this never-ending uncomfortable way of being. I believe that these symptoms are here to tell you something....there is wisdom in your anxiety, and as we work together, you will begin to see it too.
Can you remember the last time you felt like yourself? What was life like for you before depression showed up? Or maybe you don't remember ever feeling different. But you can! With genuine support and the right resources and skills you can have a better life. I know it can be hard to believe it, but once you take the first step maybe you will start seeing the rest of the path.
Most women come to me with some concerns about their relationships. Past, present, future...it's all connected! If you struggle to know what your true needs and boundaries are, or you feel invalidated, misunderstood, and unheard in any of your relationships, reaching out for help is the right thing to do. Together we can look at your relational template, see your patterns, and help you move closer to more authentic, healthy relationships.
