The relationship between therapist and patient has a context, a sharing of subjective experiences that cannot help but play out in unique and meaningful ways. Because every human being and each individual's process is unique, I won't put you through a series of pre-determined exercises or fit you into some theoretical model. I work in collaboration with you to explore, discover, illumine, and heal the wounds that have kept you from expanding into the fullness of who you are meant to be.

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent.

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is the most effective treatment for depression and anxiety. There are different subsets of CBT, therefore, depending on the diagnosis and symptoms, I will tailor the treatment to you. For example, many of the anxieties require "exposure" therapy, which will help you confront and cope with your fears in a controlled, safe and effective manner. It's all about coping skills, which is my job to provide to you. Many therapies do not provide this type of treatment, which is why many people still experience panic, phobias or OCD even when they've seen a therapist. It's important to find a therapist who specializes in CBT with exposure.

I believe in showing my clients empathy, compassion, and unconditional positive regard. There is no script to follow. It is simply listening, holding space, withholding judgement, emotionally connecting, and communicating the incredibly healing message of, "You are not alone." My approach to helping is to show up authentically, without judgment and provide unconditional acceptance and guidance in the therapy room. My philosophy regarding psychotherapy is that healing happens in a warm and safe therapeutic relationship. What I find most important is creating a space between the therapist and client that is sacred, unique, very honest, and above all, compassionate. I use down to earth examples and exercises as a way to approach the healing process...(view profile to read more)

Therapy is about change, it is about conflict, it is about emotion, and it is about our relationships. People who seek therapy may feel stuck in their relationships, their jobs, or their lives in general.They may have great difficulty coming with their families, friends and partners. Often, when individuals are struggling, their perspective of people, relationships and situations in their life can be affected. Sometimes previous or ongoing trauma seriously impacts how individuals think, cope and feel about themselves. The psychotherapy I provide, works in looking at, understanding and changing those perceptions and providing skills necessary for a new/different way of relating/communicating.

As co-therapists we bring greater awareness of what is going on in the room. We focus on the here and now. We bring experience in Gestalt, humanistic, mindfulness and narrative therapy into the room. We strive to create a safe and collaborative environment. We work together to help couples understand their patterns of behavior, acting out, shutting down and arguing. We focus on how a couple fights and not what they fight about. When we help you to understand and accept who you are now, change becomes a reality.

Adolescent & Emerging Adulthood Specialist

In 90401 - Nearby to Oak Park.

If your young adult is feeling isolated and alone, I can help them explore the circumstances that have led them to this place in their life. Sometimes healing is derived from simply gaining understanding of how their life experiences have impacted them and shaped who they are. I can help your young adult examine how their early childhood experiences have influenced the lens through which they currently view the world. I can also help them evaluate any rules they made up about the meaning of life. Together, we can design a new and more fulfilling story for their future.

Psychotherapy is not anything to be scared of, or intimidated about. Seeking out a therapist or being in therapy isn't an admission of weakness or some kind of character flaw. Therapy is a collaborative process and a partnership with someone who is trained in and experienced with facilitating personal growth. And in this process, you are in the driver's seat. Our minds and emotions and relationships involve complicated machinery just like our bodies do and in the same way a medical doctor helps you stay physically healthy, Psychotherapy is designed to help you be and stay mentally and socially strong, and continually in a position to take on life's many challenges as your best self.

The process of therapy is and should be tailored to each individual's life experience. Research shows that clients in therapy, who seek assistance to deal with a whole range of issues, challenges, thoughts, and emotions, can experience a positive benefit. In our collaborative work, we will complete a comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment, where we look at many life factors that may be contributing to those challenges for which therapy is being considered. After an assessment, we will have a clearer idea of core values, possible goals and many ideas on designing a flexible plan that is easy to understand and use to bring about the transformation desired.

In psychotherapy together, you and I, we will work to understand the meaning of the symptoms and/or situations that brought you into psychotherapy in the first place. Whatever the symptom there is a reason for it? Together we will discover why you are suffering this. We will look to clues from past ( family and relational dynamics) and see discover what unconscious thoughts, patterns and beliefs might be the source of this suffering. Much of the healing that will occur in our work together will come from making the unconscious conscious. Through increasing conscious awareness patients have a decrease in symptoms, improved relationships, and an increase in life-satisfaction.

Psychotherapy is the use of verbal or other therapeutic-based modalities to create a positive change for the person seeking it. Psychotherapy is a unique process for each person who participates in it and the time that one spends in this process varies from case to case. Over time, one of the essential goals of psychotherapy is for our clients to obtain the necessary tools to work through issues on their own as they arise. It is essential that clients remember that psychotherapy is a process, and if done correctly, a beneficial one. I appreciate you trusting your therapeutic needs with me.

Using a combination of individual and group therapy, I help my clients resolve the pain of the past and build the skills to thrive in the future. By understanding the root cause of psychological pain, releasing the emotions attached to the pain, and learning from the pain, my clients change their lives. You can too. If you are willing to do "the work," I am willing to help you. "Talk therapy," whether in a group or done one-to-one can heal old wounds, improve relationships, eliminate symptoms and increase self-esteem. If you feel "weak," because you are seeking therapy, I politely disagree. For me, it is the strong who walk thorough my door and ask for help. Choose to be strong.

My approach to psychotherapy does not involve years of talk about issues until the client reaches a "catharsis," and suddenly is cured. It is more of a collaboration and involves the client to engage in his own therapy. We look for solutions, rather than talking about "problems" endlessly. As a person-centered therapist, I believe an authentic, respectful and caring relationship with the client fosters growth and self-actualization. The use of cognive-behavioral methods, allows us to look for underlying beliefs the client may have about his place in the world, and unrealistic thought patterns, such as "all-or-nothing" thinking. These can be redirected to provide positive outomes.

People go to therapy to address a problem that is distressing them and causing interference in a significant aspect of their life (work, social life, interpersonal relationships, sleep, etc.) After the immediate problem is resolved or significantly reduced, most of my clients continue to stay in therapy because they have started noticing a change in themselves that they like! To me, therapy isn't just about reducing symptoms. It is about much more. It's about experiencing meaning in life. It's about connecting with the best version of ourselves and knowing that person is there within us. That's true self-confidence. My clients tend to tell me they feel more "whole". That's therapy to me.
