One-on-one counseling provides an opportunity for people to openly talk about their thoughts and feelings while being assisted by a professional and caring guide. Clients often seek individual therapy due to some recent stress in their lives, or due to an ongoing conflict they have been unable to resolve alone. Although some people intially worry that talking about themselves will be awkward or uncomfortable, most people find individual sessions enjoyable and growth enhancing. While the client gains greater focus on her/his thoughts and feelings, the therapist acts as a non-judmental guide, helping the individual recognize patterns and finding ways to aviod past problems.

Psychotherapy can be an intimidating term. Society has caused a lot of people to believe that seeking help has negative connotations. In reality, it's a sign of strength that you can acknowledge there's a problem and be brave enough to seek out a solution. Psychotherapy will do just that. I can help you navigate through whatever problems you may be facing and aide you in alleviating your symptoms and overcoming these obstacles.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 60093 - Nearby to Highwood.

My approach to psychotherapy begins in working on developing with each of my clients an atmosphere of trust and respect. I believe that making the decision to engage a therapist in order to work on one's particular life challenges, is one of the most healthy choices we can make.! It is a choice for health. My clients benefit from therapy with me by experiencing a quick reduction in their anxiety and a clearer understanding of what they are up against - with themselves, their relationships and their lives. From that place of increased calm and improved self-understanding, my clients can then begin to make thoughtful and productive life choices.

I strongly believe in psychotherapy, because I have counseled hundreds of people in group and individual therapy in this way. Many people have the belief that they often just "need to manage my medications" and that meeting just to talk with a counselor is a waste of time. People need to talk and to process their 'story', that is, where they've been, where they are now, and where they want to go in their life. Medication only helps with physiological issues and brain chemistry; psychotherapy gives a person context, and helps them make better, more informed decisions about their life and gives them information (not medication) to make wise life decisions.

This is, to me, the most in-depth therapy that I provide. It requires a relationship with the client. And a level of trust that being in that space together is a safe place. It mandates a great history, an accurate diagnosis and a treatment plan that drives the process forward. Most psychotherapy leaves clients feeling tired afterwards because it challenges them to deal with their feelings, allowing the insights to come and the revelations to incur. Psychotherapy is the utmost marvel of my work. And the ultimate healing for most clients who engage in it and allow the process to work.

Choices! Research shows that we are more likely to change when we have choices. Together we will identify research-based interventions that can help you cope more effectively with the problems you are experiencing and help you feel better. Psychiatrist Irving Yalom said "It's the relationship that heals!" I firmly believe this and will work with you to form a relationship that feels safe - one that helps you tap into your own wisdom and strengths. You will become more familiar with who you are and will allow yourself to live your life more freely and more fully.

Psychotherapy?! What a funny word. I am a psychotherapist, NOT a psycho therapist! :) Others call me a counselor or "the talk lady." People who find me tend to be parents who are looking for support for their children. I use research based therapies that bring empowerment, positive behavior changes, and less frustration and stress. I specialize in youth aged 3-25 who have experienced some level of stress like a divorce, bullying, self-harm, sexting or abuse. Youth nowadays have a different mentality, and I also support parents in understanding and connecting with their children. If you call for a free phone consult and I don't think we are a good match, I will give you multiple referrals.

I use a process of deep investigative conversation in order to identify your strengths, experiences, and interests so that a full understanding of your core values, desires, goals and conflicts can be understood. Using this individualized understanding, creating meaningful change is possible. By helping people to understand the thoughts, conflicts and feelings behind their behavior patterns, new choices can be made with clarity and confidence. Depth oriented conversations can help a person to integrate internal conflicts, develop meaningful life visions and help them to create the life they want.

Psychotherapy in Greek means "healing of the human spirit". Sometimes people just need a little support and they find their way. Other times therapy can help individuals work towards facilitating a positive change and improve ones quality of life. Many individuals report that they are able to increase their self awareness and self understanding. This leads them to self growth and an improved way to manage their particular situation. Therapy can help individuals who struggle with a wide range of symptoms and conditions such as depression, anxiety, relationships issues and problems, stressful life events and internalized trauma.

Psychotherapy is a process of self discovery and skill learning. If a person comes in to learn some new skills and is willing to take the responsibility for meaningful change to occur, then the success of our work together goes up dramatically. I see psychotherapy as a process of working together on the things that the client wants to address with compassion and acceptance.

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.
