Practices In: Romeoville
Patients Seen: Adolescents and Adults

I believe ther­a­py should work for the patient. My pri­ma­ry approach is one root­ed in CBT and DBT ther­a­pies, but I also have train­ing in Per­son-Cen­tered, Object Rela­tions, REBT, Solu­tion-Focused, and oth­er tech­niques. I try to uti­lize what appears to work best for the patient while pro­vid­ing the sup­port and guid­ance nec­es­sary for growth, as well as lis­ten to the patien­t’s feed­back to ensure the time spent with me is ben­e­fi­cial for them.
