My approach to psychotherapy starts with a careful assessment of the problem and your attempts to solve them. We will look at your whole life, your health, your relationships with loved ones, your relationship with God. Sometimes, we are living life out of balance or we are going through difficult transitions and we just need some coaching on how to get ourselves unstuck. Other times solutions seem much more difficult to find. I can help with both but I am especially committed to finding creative solutions for those times when that problem just doesn't seem to go away no matter how hard you try.

It is not always easy or comfortable to share how you are feeling, what you are struggling with, or thing that are bothering you with others even people you are very close to because it is very vulnerable. I am here to help you with that process of opening up and talking about issues that are negatively impacting your life. Therapy can help you acknowledge the issues and become more aware of how you want to manage, resolve, and work through them. This path can help you work towards your meaningful life while address the issues that may be standing in your way.

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Registered Art Therapist

In 60173 - Nearby to West Chicago.

I believe that the therapy process should be one in which the therapist and client work TOGETHER to achieve the client's vision. The relationship should be built on trust and mutual respect. I will offer guidance and recommendations if you request it, but will never tell you how you should or should not live your life. I believe you're an expert on your own life. Together, we will work to determine what you want from life, what's getting in the way, and what to do to help you feel better and let go of old behaviors or thought patterns that don't serve you anymore.

Processing and talking about emotions and thought processes is how change and healing begins for it actually changes neuro pathways in the brain. I have been providing a safe place for clients to process through their darkest fears since 1996. My clients describe me as direct and to the point, yet compassionate and easy to open up to. They also find that I am able to take the complexities in life and make them easy to understand so that they can start making changes to get back to the life they desire.

Psychotherapy is not easily described in general statements. It varies depending on the therapist, the client, and the particular problems one is experiencing. There are many different methods that may be used to deal with the problems that you hope to address. Psychotherapy calls for a very active effort on your part. In order for therapy to be successful, you will have to work on things discussed during the session when at home. There are benefits to psychotherapy even though therapy often involves discussing unpleasant aspects of your life. You may experience uncomfortable feelings like sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness, and helplessness. Therapy often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reductions in feelings of distress.

Licensed Psychologist

In 60195 - Nearby to West Chicago.

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.

Psychotherapy may sound scary, but it doesn't have to be. Think of it as really diving into some self-exploration to understand why you think the way you think, feel the way you feel, and behave the way you behave. Perhaps there have been some significant life experiences, even traumatic experiences that have impacted your life that need to be reprocessed. Together we can address, reduce and manage troubling symptoms.

I believe psychotherapy helps teach us how to have healthy relationships, cope with life stressors, and learn to love and accept ourselves. Within my psychotherapy sessions and groups I begin with identifying what your presenting problem is and we begin to work on solving how you got to this problem. I often discuss the importance of self love, assertiveness, and the importance of communicating effectively. I work with my clients to lift them up and empower them to recognize unhealthy habits and relationships and replace them with sustainable healthy habits that benefit them in every aspect of their lives.

Psychotherapy helps you to tap into your inner-most feelings and subconscious thoughts that control social/emotional behavior. Psychotherapy techniques will help you to identify and cope with challenges that keep you from realizing the life you idealize. Therapeutic techniques may include, but are not limited to, the client expressing any thoughts and feelings without censorship (free association) or analyzing dreams for meaning. In doing so, the client will gain self-awareness necessary to promote healthy personality and behavior changes.

Psychotherapy is the process where you seek out truths and understanding and throw away what isn't working. Then you build something that is better. I think the goal of therapy is to develop self awareness and this, in turn, will help create happiness. I don't have all of the answers, but I have a good idea of what questions to ask. That will help guide us to understanding and to develop a resolution to the problems you are seeking help for. For more information, please don't hesitate to contact me.

We all think negatively at times; however, we are empowered because we can change the way we think in order to feel better and cope in the best way possible. In order to pursue optimal psychological health, one way to start is to begin to monitor our thinking regularly. The next step is to examine or question our thoughts and ask ourselves things like: Are our thoughts rational or reasonable? Are they helpful in changing the situation or making us feel better? Are they in proportion to what has happened? Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a particularly effective form of psychotherapy that can help you learn how to feel better especially if CBT is part of a comprehensive treatment plan
