Patients Seen: Adolescents and Adults

I want ther­a­py to be a safe place for peo­ple to share as much as they feel com­fort­able shar­ing, with the hope that they will also grow to share what is also uncom­fort­able. I want each indi­vid­ual to feel that some­one is lis­ten­ing, but also when need­ed to help them devel­op tan­gi­ble steps that they can take to improve their lives and rela­tion­ships. My goal is to learn about my clients phys­i­cal, emo­tion­al, and spir­i­tu­al issues, as well as past dif­fi­cul­ties, present con­cerns and future desires, in order to help heal past wounds, facil­i­tate work­ing through present sit­u­a­tions, and encour­age hope for the future. Ses­sions are typ­i­cal­ly con­ver­sa­tion­al, and even when dif­fi­cult sub­jects are dis­cussed there will be an atmos­phere of hope and opti­mism, as one of my beliefs is that fail­ure is a road to suc­cess. As far as who I am, I have over 20 years of expe­ri­ence work­ing with ado­les­cents and adults, men, women, cou­ples and fam­i­lies. As with many ther­a­pists, my own expe­ri­ences help me to empathize with my clients, and I will share my expe­ri­ences, when help­ful. I am hap­pi­ly mar­ried, and hap­py hav­ing chil­dren I have birthed and inher­it­ed. I enjoy music, movies, sports (devot­ed Chica­go fan), inter­est­ing books and arti­cles, and good con­ver­sa­tion. And most impor­tant­ly, I believe every per­son has worth, and has a sto­ry worth hearing.
