My Approach to Helping
Are you looking for someone trustworthy who can help? Why just survive when you can thrive. True change & healing come from deep within and is a process requiring respect and love of yourself. If you are seeking change for yourself or in your relationships, I can help you envision and implement strategies to get you to a better mindset. My empathetic, energetic, motivational style, allows even the difficult topics to be explored. I love the Gottman Method to improve relationships and am fascinated by the unconscious mind. I have been helping couples for over 15 years.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy along with Hypnosis is the best way to change the self-defeating messages stored in your unconscious. I masterfully blend my knowledge and training into an approach that helps you build skills to manage anxiety, reduce depression, find moments of joy, and to believe in yourself.
I am formally trained in EMDR, Hypnosis, Gottman Method, Holographic Memory Resolution, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, CBT, and Motivational Interviewing.
I have been an LCSW since 1991 in IL and an LCSW in CA since Sept 2020. I am a Master Certified Life Coach. Board Certified Telehealth Professional. Experience includes Mental Health Centers, Inpatient Units, Mental Health Crisis Teams, Partial Hospital Programs and Out-patient Private Practice.I welcome the opportunity to help you feel good about yourself & those you love.
