"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." -C.G. Jung-
Suffering is an inescapable aspect of life...an aspect that always carries potential for personal growth and meaning. The challenge is to pause long enough to reflect; to face what life has put before us that we can no longer ignore. Psychotherapy is ultimately about having a safe place for an inner journey to meaning; a journey accompanied by someone familiar with the path and the process. Whether it's normal life transitions, or perhaps a major life disruption, the struggle contains an opportunity.

As a Jungian psychotherapist, I take a depth-oriented approach to the therapy process. This means that I assist my clients to gain greater self-awareness and greater access to their own inner wisdom in navigating the problem issues of their lives. I see my role as supportive, but also as a guide for my clients in their individual path towards greater wholeness and wellbeing.

Clients who come to me for counseling are often feeling overwhelmed by the struggles that go with various typical life events; starting a new job, adjusting to college, starting a new relationship, beginning a family, parenting challenges, caring for aging parents or retirement. But there are also those unexpected life situations that seem to alter everything; breakdowns in marriages or significant relationships, untimely losses, (a job, a friendship, or perhaps the death of someone close), or a frightening or life-threatening diagnosis. All of these experiences can prompt symptoms such as anxiety or even depression, but almost assuredly, lead to feelings of aloneness and isolation.

In addition to alleviating acute symptoms associated with emotional distress, my clients frequently report that therapy helps them develop effective coping strategies and removes "blocks" to personal fulfillment that were not readily apparent when trying to solve their problems on their own. Additionally, clients generally report an improved outlook on their lives and relationships overall, based on the insights they gain over the course of therapy. This is usually in the form of greater self-awareness, greater self-empathy and the universal human satisfaction of "things making sense."

As a Jungian Psychotherapist, I hold a master’s degree in counseling and am licensed in the State of Illinois as a Clinical Professional Counselor. I also have extensive post-graduate training in Analytical Psychology. With over twenty years of experience in private practice, I work with adult clients dealing with a variety of issues including: Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Chronic Illness, Depression, Divorce Adjustment, Family Conflict, Grief and Loss, Dissociative Disorders, Mood Disorders, Life Transitions, Men's Issues, Relationship Issues, Self Esteem, Spirituality, Suicidal Ideations, Trauma and PTSD.

No one can tell you when it is time to begin the inner work of a counseling process. Usually you have to try it on your own for a while before concluding that consulting a professional might be beneficial. If you feel ready or if you would just like to talk about the possibility, please contact me at 815-933-4072. My office is location is 575B William R. Latham Sr. Drive, Bourbonnais, Illinois, 60914. Telehealth session are also available.

I am currently in the BlueCross BlueShield of Illinois, PPO network and bill this insurance company directly. A bill can be provided for submission to all other insurance companies upon request.
