Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) / Psychotherapist

In 60614 - Nearby to River Forest.

Relationships are built on pillars of trust and aligning values. I utilize John Gottman's research on marital stability in my practice. I also focus on the use of Gary Chapman's five love languages as a way to explore whether each person is getting his/her needs met most effectively in the relationship. I typically work with younger couples who have not yet entered into the sacrament of marriage or are recently married.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 60015 - Nearby to River Forest.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, when a couple comes to see me, I treat the relationship versus the individuals. Relationships themselves are my focus, and with that in mind, in a non-blaming, non-siding way, together we collaboratively figure out what relationship cycles have been created between you as the couple, how you can get out of those cycles, and how to maintain the relationship you want whether you are newly dating, engaged, newlyweds, or married for 50 years.

I have worked with couples in a variety of stages of stress and conflict in their relationships - from those who have just begun to experience problems to those who are in intense conflict. Research shows that the earlier in a relationship or marriage that a couple engages in trying to explore and examine the trouble causing emotional and behavioral patterns of the relationship , the more successful and effective the therapy can be. And, although it is preferential to work with both members of a couple in therapy, one individual can work on the relationship on their own and still see enormous benefits from the therapy.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor & Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor

In 60602 - Nearby to River Forest.

Couples work is challenging but I enjoy it. I like to help people improve how they relate to each other; communicate better; work through conflicts; and connect on a deeper level. I'm also very non-judgmental and help couples work through complicated issues they sometimes have a hard time finding a therapist for such as exploring sexual boundaries or non-traditional relationship issues. Unfortunately - sometimes it's also about ending a relationship and using the therapist to help navigate a "friendly divorce" rather than an acrimonious one.

I utilize and implement aspects of the Gottman approach to helping couples heal. I assist each person in the couple in helping them recognize how they communicate with and impact the other, and how some communication patterns are ineffective. I assist couples in finding effective communication strategies, healthy interaction and intimacy patterns, while building trust and respect for one another.
