Within the therapeutic relationship, I believe therapy should be a collaborative process, however just like most things in life, one get’s out of therapy what they are willing to put in it. It is her aim to provide a supportive and objective environment for clients to explore, become educated and to create the change they desire to see.
Clients working with me often become empowered to place themselves back on their own priority list, confront feelings from their past - often trauma related - and find ways to gain the healthiest relationship with themselves. This ultimately is based on my belief that if we have the best relationship with ourselves it will show to be true in all other aspects of our life’s journey. It is with this awareness that individuals are allowed to give themselves permission to live their absolute best and most authentic life yet.
I am truly a Gestalt therapist at heart with influences of Feminist, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well. I believe that by exploring and gaining awareness of one’s past, grants them access to understanding the nature behind their behavioral patterns and gives them the opportunity to make better informed decisions within their life to help foster their continual growth. I am currently accepting new clients in the South Loop.
