Domestic Abuse therapists in Crystal Lake, Illinois IL
Counselor/Therapist, ND LCPC CYI ABT PATP
24 Years Experience
Domestic abuse often creates very painful symptoms and is something for which I use a therapy called Prolonged Exposure (PE). In this therapy, we will revisit traumatic situations, process painful emotions, and change unhelpful beliefs about yourself and the world around you as a result of your trauma. People are often amazed at how quickly this treatment can work and by the very meaningful change that can result. For these reasons, this is one of my favorite treatments to provide.
18 Years Experience
I work extensively with both Clinical and Forensic populations, delivering targeted Behavioral, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral (DBT) Therapies tailored to the specific needs of each individual client. I specialize in working with adolescents and adults with Personality Disorders (Borderline, Narcissistic, Antisocial), Mood Disorders (Anxiety, Depression), Behavioral Disorders (Oppositionality, Anger), and Sexual Dysfunction. In addition, I treat sex offenders, individuals convicted of violent and non-violent criminal offenses, perpetrators of domestic violence, and other forensic populations. * In my capacity as a Psychological Evaluator, I conduct thorough diagnostic clarification of psychological symptoms in clients of all ages. These range from Sexual Disorders, to Developmental Disorders (Autism Spectrum, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity), Substance Use Disorders, Mood Disorders (Bipolar, Obsessive-Compulsive), and Personality Disorders. * In my Forensic Evaluation work, I conduct assessments upon referral from the Courts, private, state, and federal agencies, self-referrals, and attorneys.
