My Approach to Helping

It takes courage to ask a stranger, even a professional, for help. Yet, the first step is often the most important. With a non-judgmental and collaborative client-therapist relationship as a foundation, I truly believe in one’s capacity to create powerful and lasting change. As both a seasoned trauma therapist and a person with lived chronic pain experience, I am in a unique position to help others struggling with pain or disability. I can assist with learning self-advocacy in the medical world, brainstorm accommodations to create a long-term, sustainable lifestyle, and develop coping strategies for when pain or disability triggers feelings of hopelessness, depression, or anxiety. Pain and disability can create a vicious cycle of stress, but help is available to create new, healthy patterns in your life.

The experience of chronic pain and disability can include both grief and trauma; these are normal reactions and you deserve space to process this with a professional who can validate your experiences. Living in harmony with a dysfunctional body is not impossible. The path to acceptance can be fraught with struggle and resistance, but the journey is well worth it. I am also trained as a Master's level Art Therapist, and offer non-verbal interventions for when words just aren't enough. Pain and disability can rattle even the most stable of people; let's get started on the path forward together. Your mental health is a worthwhile investment.

More Info About My Practice

Resilience Counseling LLC is my private counseling practice. In order to make additional convenience and privacy available to my clients, I offer in-home counseling services as well as office appointments. Office appointments are scheduled at my home office located in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago, which is easily accessible from downtown. I love working in a clean, welcoming space, and share my home with 2 friendly rescue cats. Per your preference, they can easily be placed in another room during your visit.

Every therapist has different boundaries with clients. I maintain strict professional boundaries with all clients in order for their therapy to be effective, but also value authenticity. In general, clients who work well with me want a therapist who speaks with them, and not to or at them. I am a mental health expert; you are the expert of your own life. Let's work together to create the change you want to see.

My Guiding Ethical Principles

As a result of years of effectively working with diverse populations, I highly value cultural competency as a guiding ethical principal in my work as a therapist. Grasping an understanding of my clients different intersections of identity, privileges, and ways in which they may be marginalized, is crucial to understanding how to best help them. As an LGBTQIA affirming and sex positive (kink and poly affirming) therapist, I am passionate about making therapy a nonjudgmental space where all can feel welcomed and cared for, regardless of their race, gender, sexuality, religion, or immigration status. My willingness to admit when I don't know or understand something, and then find guidance on the topic, is critical to maintaining myself as a culturally competent therapist.
