Dissociative Disorders therapists in Crystal Lake, Illinois IL
Counselor/Therapist, MA, LCPC
Part of the healing process is being listened to and understood. I help you see more clearly what has been happening and what that may mean for you, providing a safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be explored and understood. Together, we work to help you move from wherever you're stuck.

Seeking help is a powerful step to improving your quality of life. Talking to someone about whatever your concerns are is something that almost anyone can benefit from, but many people are afraid to reach out. If you are considering therapy or coaching, I applaud you, and I really do want to help you find what you need to feel POWERFUL and help you develop the tools to have peace in your life. I enjoy working with diverse clients, and have treated patients on the inpatient as well as outpatient basis. I began providing therapy in 1996, and have worked full time in several local hospitals before deciding to work full time in outpatient private practice. Though I work with many populations, I enjoy helping individuals with issues of trauma as well as working with couples. I work with all age ranges and have helped clients with a range of diagnosis. I use a variety of techniques, including but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and EMDR. I am also a Certified Hypnotist and a trained mediator.

When people experience trauma, the mind has a wonderful way of protecting us from the pain that sometimes comes at the service of disconnecting from ourselves.
