Therapists Providing Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) in Chicago

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is a cognitive behavioral therapy that helps people reduce anxiety by gradually facing their fears. The client learns to identify triggers, obsessive thoughts, and unhelpful coping strategies such as compulsions, rituals, or avoidance. The client then begins facing their fears while refraining from any of the unhelpful coping strategies. Anxiety gradually subsides in response to increased exposure to the trigger.

Oftentimes we subscribe to living life on someone else’s terms - whether we heed to the opinions of loved ones or conform to society’s ideals. This is especially true when we endure pain and trauma, which can disrupt our sense of self and make us second-guess our needs.

But I believe that you’re the expert in your own life. I want to create a space for you to feel safe, affirmed, and heard. By listening to you and asking questions that need to be asked, I can help us develop a sense of shared curiosity about who you are at this moment in time. I provide a space where we can feel, think, act, process, and problem-solve together in an authentic way. There are so many ways to live - let’s explore them together.

Whatever brought you here, it shows acknowledgement that we are human and awareness of our ability to work through our pains. It takes courage to recognize that additional help is needed and to try something different than you may be used to. Take a moment and appreciate your bravery; this is you trying something new, something you may not have thought about before! I believe we all experience pain in life; what’s important is to identify the healthiest ways to manage it and how to stay present. We can learn to channel our energy into valued living and be productive with our pain. I hope to encourage you to embrace life’s challenges, using your own strengths and internal resources, to move in the direction of growth and valued living. My intention is to provide a safe and motivating space to nurture insight, confidence, and readiness to take action in your life; to build a life you are proud and inspired to live.

Uncertain of what the future holds? Seemingly you have it all together, but deep down you’re filled with worry. You feel out of control and try everything possible to regain control, but it’s not working! Whether you feel pressured by societal expectations or are your own worst critic; life’s ups & downs can feel like a never-ending ride. Maybe it's self-esteem; maybe it's body image; maybe it's relationships or just overwhelming stress... Imagine if you felt balanced again; comfortable in your own skin. Imagine feeling confident and ready to embrace life’s chaos in the healthiest of ways. I can help.

I believe that you can live the life you desire. It starts with awareness that something is ‘stuck’, not working in the way we hoped it would, and willingness to acknowledge the need to reassess and try something different. Yes, it may be easier said than done; however, when you expand awareness of how your inner world is impacting your outer world (and vice versa) it opens up countless directions to choose from, creating opportunities for change and to build the life you truly want to live. When we learn to embrace the rollercoaster of life and to navigate its challenges in healthy ways, we have more energy to act in ways we value and to move in directions of our choice. When we are present, confident to take on the good and the bad, we have the ability, power, and space to create a life that is meaningful, joyful, and genuine. I hope to support you in your journey, providing you with the skills and insight needed, to grow and achieve your goals!

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.

In therapy, I seek to meet individuals where they are, and recognize that clients are their own experts in their lives. I aim to develop a goal-oriented, non-judgmental environment where clients can cope, grow, and make adjustments in their lives.
