My Approach to Helping

WHEN LIFE CHANGES OR HAS TO CHANGE, you want to figure out what this entails for you on a personal level and for others in your life. This is true whether you merely feel stuck, are maybe overwhelmed by various problems, or are in crisis. I work very effectively with adults and teens to overcome tough problems - especially life transitions and all types of relationship issues, including personal, partner, professional, or parent/teen - and help enable you to delicately move through your deeply felt emotions of anger, loss, and frustration. I can also effectually help you get through periods of depression, sadness, or stress, perhaps challenging bipolar symptoms, and/or sometimes crippling anxiety. Your progress will help you experience improved personal functioning and well-being.

Based on goals conveyed as important by you, the client, I prioritize your near-term relief from the most serious symptoms and help you gain insight regarding your emotions, physical symptoms, and behaviors. I encourage exploration of alternative thoughts and brainstorm new options available to improve overall quality of life; and we work together to help activate new skills that build on personal strengths by generalizing those current strengths and skills to new areas. We will focus primarily on present-day related issues and problems, yet consider how past experiences might influence your perceptions, expectations, and/or behavioral patterns that are no longer helpful.

WHEN YOU ARE READY TO FEEL BETTER, I am here ready to work with you. Therapy is conducted within a safe, kind, supportive and nonjudgmental environment wherein you always have the option to make choices. My personal goal is to create an experience where you can find healing and encouragement. I am committed to helping you feel better, realize your best self, and achieve goals meaningful to you.

When appropriate to your needs, I have extensive experience providing both electronic and phone counseling.

I am a preferred BCBSIL PPO and CIGNA PPO/HMO provider. I also provide receipt documentation for submission to your insurer when out-of-network services are delivered. If you have no insurance or perhaps no coverage for counseling services - or if your policy has a high individual/family deductible - please discuss with me self-pay options.

Debit cards, credit cards, and PAYPAL are accepted.
