Imagine this: you are having a seemingly fine day, then a random trigger comes along and hijacks both your body and thoughts. This leaves you uncertain and stuck... Not only are you judging your own emotional response and not sure what to do next, but your body also feels like it’s been through the ringer. You have every intention to cope and work on yourself and are all too familiar with the phrase “I should work on this”, but you are just way too exhausted and aren’t quite sure where to start. Maybe you don't need to imagine this situation because it is all too familiar. I can relate to these very human experiences and can partner with you to change the way you think and feel. Our emotions serve many vital functions, but often prompt a physical response that can impact the way we view the world. By implementing simple evidenced based strategies to your life at a pace that works for you, you will have the opportunity to confront your emotions with confidence and learn how growth happens when we take a step outside of our comfort zone. With over 15 years of diverse clinical experience with a focus on treating Addiction, Trauma, Anxiety, and Mood Disorders in a hospital setting, I bring you a flexible and creative approach that is curated to your specific needs. While I am open and honored to work with any type of symptom presentation, my niche is working with individuals who have struggled with trauma, addiction, and those that have been impacted by addiction. I hope you will consider scheduling an intake with me to see if we would be a good fit for your wellness journey, please check out my booking link. I look forward to meeting you!

Adulting is hard and brings its own sets of challenges! In fact, adulthood can be a rollercoaster ride at times. Although rewarding, being an adult has its ups and downs. Sometimes we find our “downs” are making us feel anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, or stuck. Because there is no definitive “how to guide” for adulting, we might find ourselves having a tough time navigating some of the bumps or downs we find ourselves experiencing. What I want you to know is you do not have to feel this way forever – living a different life and enacting change is possible. And I am here to support you along the way! As a therapist, I am passionate about working with adult clients who are in early adulthood (18-35). I frequently see clients who could use extra support with navigating adulthood. Commonly, I work with clients who want to identify and act on solutions to help them feel differently, gain insight into their concerns, or even find more effective ways to cope with what’s bothering them. I often work with clients who are going through a life transition, are coping with changes in their life, or want to make a change in their life (but aren’t sure how). Frequent concerns that tend to pop up in my work with clients include anxiety, depression, stress, overwhelm, irritability, low motivation, feeling "stuck", problems sleeping and burnout. I also support clients with perfectionism, health concerns, grief/loss, poor work-life balance, difficulties boundary setting, and/or a desire to communicate more effectively. If any of this resonates with you, please reach out and schedule your intake appointment. It would be a pleasure to work with you!

I believe in the counseling therapeutic process which is vital in the task of achieving change in one’s life. Everyone must cope with life experiences and in some instances those situations become too difficult to handle alone. It is a time in everyone’s life where one may need to obtain assistance with life stressors. There is no shame in seeking out help to take action that is needed for change. Counseling is the catalyst for one to become educated on how to deal with those challenging issues. My view is that counseling is a journey of self-exploration by the client meant to increase their level in understanding themselves in a more enlighten manner. I as a counselor will guide and facilitate that journey. Along that journey I will give essential advice to the client to discover the solutions for those issues. It is also my job to assist in identifying as well as developing and mobilizing the client’s own resources to solve those problems. The goal is to understand the problems the client is dealing with, and then to pursue effective treatment options. I will be supportive and sympathetic to help clients overcome self-imposed obstacles.

Hi I'm Gaby. If you have been feeling sick and stuck in a negative thought process and wondering if there is anyone who can understand or help you, let's talk. I am here to help you experience change and escape from the pattern of life that has left you feeling different, unwell, and stuck. I am first and foremost a Trauma Informed Recovery Therapist. This means that I believe in you and I believe in your goals and I know we can find a way to get there while acknowledging all that you have been through. I realized I wanted to become a therapist during a serendipitous summer camp experience—40 feet in the air on the high ropes course, I learned that I loved helping people process challenging experiences in creative ways. I love using a lot of different approaches depending on what we are working on. Some of my favorite methods are cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, strength based therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. I have been doing individual therapy with teens and adults of all ages since 2020. Previously, I worked as a clinical consultant, clinical director, and clinical supervisor in specialized mental health rehabilitation settings. I have been supporting people in creating and meeting their goals since 2012. I have used all of my past work experiences to learn how to work with clients to explore dreams, and strengths, and learn how to make these things their reality. I use eclectic strategies to support people as they sort through their lives and figure out ways to move forward in a new light. I believe that therapy is a special space that allows a person to sit, process, and problem-solve in a way that can’t always be done in day-to-day.

I greet every client with the belief that we are born into this world with the capacity for living unique and healthy lives. I believe that it is the stressors of challenging individual experiences, pain and illnesses, trauma, and attachment injuries that move us off our centers and cause symptoms of depression, anxiety, and dysfunctional defensive behaviors. My goal is to create a setting in which my client feels safe and supported, and therefore able to re-examine the patterns that form our thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Do you feel stuck in a pattern that is negatively impacting your overall wellness? Just as important as the "why" is the "what" aspect of the mind. What we think, what we feel and what we believe are all intertwined with our behavior. Exploring the thoughts and beliefs that underpin certain actions can lead to profound self-awareness and personal growth. In my interactions with clients, I have witnessed the transformative power of uncovering and challenging deep-seated beliefs that no longer serve them. While patterns and commonalities may emerge among individuals, it is crucial to remember that each person's mind is a unique landscape. What works for one may not work for another, and it is my duty as a clinician to adapt the plan of care accordingly. As a therapist and health coach, I incorporate a holistic (mind/body) approach.

We all have dealt with some type of family issue before. At times it can be hard to talk about, but sitting on it usually just makes things worse. My role in this process is to assist in delving into how these events have impacted you and how to move forward in future situations. Need to talk about trauma or issues with depression? Let's tackle this together and discover ways to overcome negative associations from the past. I help adults struggling with symptoms of depression and family issues. I also assist with anxiety and have a trauma focused background. I primarily use the tools of compassion, mindfulness, and problem solving to offer new perspectives in dealing with instances of intergenerational trauma. In many cases, certain aspects unknowingly get repeated between parents and their children. This can be addressed through discussing your own understanding as well as opting to make changes for your future.

Whether it is offering nutritional suggestions on foods that help alleviate depressive symptoms, or helping you identify a form of exercise that helps you alleviate your stress and anxiety, I look at you as a ‘whole person’ rather than a collection of symptoms. Often described as patient and calm, I utilize these traits to create a safe space for you to explore your difficulties and find solutions. Practicing from a solution-focused perspective I believe that even the smallest changes are a step in the right direction.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Licensed Practitioner of The Healing Arts, with a Master’s degree in Social Work, and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Growing up with two parents who struggled with addiction, I experienced anxiety and depression at an early age, and did not want to become a product of my environment. This led me to seek a different path. One where I could not only help myself, but a path where I could take every opportunity to help others as well. I embarked on this journey into the human psyche to gain a better understanding of behaviors, mental functioning, and how I can best serve clients in achieving their desired goals.

Whether it is self-acknowledged engrained attitudes and beliefs acquired from parental, educational, religious, or social conditioning that has caused you to undervalue yourself and value other's opinions of you above your own self-assessment or whether the cause is unknown, I can help you. We will use a solutions-focused approach that utilizes practical and proven techniques that address both your emotional, mental, and physical needs. I incorporate bible verses, history, and personality assessments to assist you in seeing your place in the world and recognizing yourself as a valuable individual. In our sessions together, you will be met with respect and appreciation. I look forward to working with you.

Hi I'm Regina Do you know that everyone feels overwhelmed; especially now. Balancing family, work demands, and life is challenging. Everyone experiences these things differently and may need some reminding of their own strengths. I am a highly trained therapist with many years of experience helping clients realize their own potential. My approach is filtered through a culturally rich and ethnically diverse lens. I'm gentle, empathic and meet my clients where they are at. Building upon past coping mechanisms will enable you to develop and find more effective ways of managing life stressors. Look, I get that everyone has some level of depression and anxiety. There are many interventions we can use from the traditional methods such as cognitive behavioral and solution-focused to the latest smart phone apps. I recognize that it will be hard work! But, through your hard work will be where true success comes.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to reach out! Do you ever have those days when things are especially difficult?? Many of the people that I meet are looking for support with mental health, substance abuse, and managing traumatic events. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker as well as a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I also have extensive experience supporting teenagers who have experienced trauma, which led me to become a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. Currently, I work with adults and youth, and I'm a strong believer in the mental/physical health connection. I am currently a social worker for a small hospice team in my area so am comfortable having uncomfortable conversations. I believe in strengths-based recovery that looks at all the systems that can impact us. Bits and pieces of different models incorporated together tend to have the most benefit, based on the person's needs. I have seen so many great successes! I enjoy supporting the people I work with and going through their journey with them. I am currently licensed in both IL and TN. When I am not in sessions, you will find me hiking with the doggos, road-tripping in the Jeep, and going into "Mom Mode" with my three kids. I look forward to connecting with you :)
