Individual Psychotherapy in Chicago, IL Area

Life presents challenges every day. While some are exciting and stimulating, some life challenges can feel scary, painful, confusing, or frustrating. We often think that we need to go through difficult times alone. For some, seeking out professional help might stir up feelings of weakness, incompetence, or shame. However, recognizing the need for help and seeking out professional assistance is a sign of both strength and a determination to live an authentic and meaningful life. An effective therapist can provide support and assistance for healing, growth, change, and transformation.

Our work together can assist you with:

Relief from distress - by improving problem areas in your life. People come to me who are:
  • experiencing loss and grief
  • trapped in depression - situational or chronic
  • hindered by anxiety, panic or stress
  • confronting the effects of childhood abuse and neglect
  • mired in unhealthy or destructive relationships
  • distraught by marital crisis
Increasing life satisfaction - by helping you identify and work through what underlies areas of subtle or acute discomfort, such as:
  • struggling with low self-esteem
  • feeling stuck in an unsatisfying career
  • seeking to improve communication skills in relationships
  • setting and maintaining healthy boundaries
  • exploring estranged relationships with family or friends
  • enhancing work/life balance
  • attending to feelings of restlessness or disillusionment
  • seeking purpose and exploring meaning
Navigating transitions - by helping you reconnect with, listen to and trust your inner wisdom during life phases that can be exciting as well as challenging, for instance:
  • entering adulthood
  • getting married
  • seeking a fulfilling career
  • moving
  • becoming a parent or step-parent
  • getting divorced
  • changing jobs
  • midlife and aging issues
  • facing the empty nest
  • adjusting to retirement

It would be my privilege to work with you in therapy. Contact me to make an appointment or to ask questions.
