I believe our current struggles often have a link to past struggles. I work with clients to understand the both/and. What are the current challenges and struggles that you want to improve or change and in doing that how is it link to the past. In other words what previous distortions or hurts are causing the person current struggles and how to they build current health to grow and heal from previous hurts.

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 varies depending on the personalities of the psychotherapist and client, and the particular problems you are experiencing. Psychotherapy is a bit like a medical doctor visit in which it calls for a very active effort on your part. You will have to work on things we talk about during our sessions as well as on your own between sessions. Psychotherapy has benefits and risks. You may experience uncomfortable feelings like anxiety, sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness and helplessness. However, research shows psychotherapy benefits people who go through it. It leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reduction in distress.

My approach to psychotherapy is based on Compassion, Clarity, and Results. First, you will feel heard. You will be skillfully understood and supported. Second, you will gain new insights about your situation, your options, and yourself. Third, you will learn new strategies to handle the challenges in your life. Strategies that work. My focus is on supporting your strengths, often identifying strengths you did not know you had. This is where your strongest growth will come from. These will become the basis of your enjoyment of life and coping strategies when necessary.

Psychotherapy is a form of "talk-treatment" with psychologists which uses scientifically validated procedures to help you develop healthier and more effective habits. The form of psychotherapy I most commonly use is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is effective for problems with unhealthy behaviors, depression, anxiety, anger, and concentration. I have a more practical approach to treatment so in psychotherapy with me, we will discuss the problem bothering you and how to fix it efficiently, practice coping skills to address the problem, and then implement these into your life. Give me a call today for a free consultation and we can put together a preliminary plan over the telephone.

Sometimes skill based learning just doesn't do the trick. Many of my clients have gone through skill based therapies reporting that they learned new skills, but that the skills were not enough. Adlerian psychotherapy is for children and adults. We focus on how you find belonging and significance, uncover mistaken beliefs, and remove the obstacles that have gotten in your way.

Not every counselor has the ability, patience or interest in doing psychotherapy which I see as different from counseling as men are from women. I'm an experienced psychotherapist who has helped man clients deal with the internal and family of origin issues which lead to repetitive negative patterns of thinking, feeling and behavior. I'm not only a good listener, but engage the client in a process to feel more related with their internal lives so they can make healthier life choices. My clients have reported feeling more content and capable as a result of our work together.

Choosing to start therapy can be hard because we may have many questions? Will I be judged? Will I fit well with this therapist? Will this work? All valid questions that we can address as we begin to work together. We as therapists are here to help and never judge because we find that is not helpful in the therapeutic process.

Psychotherapy is a process of doing more in depth, "intra-psychic" work. This therapy is used by many who want to create deep and lasting personal change in their life. It's not only thoughts or behaviors or crises that are addressed. It may be about deep unhappiness in life; sexual identity; a sense of emptiness; dreams; long ago traumas or loss. The enduring benefit is a greater self understanding and new confidence in becoming a more authentic, genuine self in the world.

In 60025 - Nearby to Melrose Park.

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 is the informed and intentional application of clinical methods and interpersonal stances derived from established psychological principles for the purpose of assisting people to modify their behaviors, cognitions, emotions, and/or other personal characteristics in directions that the participants deem desirable" (Norcross, 1990, p. 218-220 ) We use Freudian-based theories, object relations, attachment theories and self-psychology to assist our clients in identifying and understanding the underlying issues that may color their current relationships.

Licensed Psychologist

In 60195 - Nearby to Melrose Park.

In psychotherapy, I strive to uncover and help the client learn to deal more effectively with the underlying causes of their difficulties in life. When logistical changes in their lives can be made to better their life situations, I bring out and foster the adoption of such. Ofter, however, deeper considerations are necessary and, in this regard, I try to help the client to relate to deeper issues that are root causes of the difficulties he or she experiences in life. Resolution of deeper issues generally leads to greater long term life satisfaction.
