    My Approach to Helping

    Each one of us at different times in our lives is challenged and hurt by something that is painful, stressful, overwhelming, or even devastating, and we have difficulty getting through it. Whatever is bothering you and causing you distress, know that you can get through it and don’t need to do it alone, without help and support.

    Whether you are experiencing difficulty with health issues, a relationship crisis, personal loss, a past or recent trauma, or another emotionally painful personal issue, I am available to assist you during this uncertain and emotionally painful experience. It is during these confusing and problematic times that we may realize we need professional support, guidance, and expertise so we can find solutions, learn, and develop helpful coping skills while receiving emotional support so we can move forward and heal.

    I offer you a safe and supportive place to come and be yourself. We can work together to get you to a place where you feel encouraged, supported, empowered, and whole. I consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to support you in your next steps toward happiness, health, and healing.

    More Info About My Practice

    During my 28 years of clinical practice, I have worked with adolescents, adults, couples, and families who were dealing with various issues and concerns. However, currently, I provide counseling and psychotherapy services for individual adults and couples in Elgin, Illinois. My present scope of practice includes a wide variety of issues; however, my specialty areas are:

    – Women’s health and mental health issues

    – Chronic pain and illness
    – Trauma treatment and therapeutic support
    – Anxiety

    I also provide counseling and therapy services to adults who are dealing with the following issues concerns:

    – Depression

    – Life transitional stressors (quarter life and midlife)

    – Family substance abuse issues

    Several key facets of the therapeutic relationship are the comfort, safety, and support that one feels they receive from their therapist as well as the experience, training, and expertise their therapist offers. It is important that you feel heard, supported, and hopeful that therapy canwill be a helpful process for you.

    Come in. Let’s meet and determine together whether or not counseling is right for you. During your initial 20-minute consultation session, which I offer to you at no charge, you can determine if you feel comfortable with me and if you think we can build a strong alliance to help you get to the place you want to be.
