Evanston Therapy 

  Improving your relationship can change your life.

Being unhappy in your relationship makes everything hard. And I mean EVERY. Friggin. Thing. Your health suffers. Friendships and family relationships get strained. And performing well at work can feel impossible (or you end up just being a workaholic which has it’s own struggles).  Therapy can be a game-changer in improving your relationship and changing your life. Which is why I am passionate about helping people like you find clarity, remake your relationship, and live a life that feels right. 

Ready to move forward? Great! You’ve got a couple of options. You can keep spinning your wheels and going nowhere (not recommended but, hey, people do it). Better yet, you can try to fix these issues through couple’s therapy if both you and your partner are up for it. This is super effective when you have a good couple’s therapist (and, lucky for you, I am one of those rare unicorns!). However, discernment counseling is a better bet if you or your partner are unsure about staying in this relationship. Not ready to bring your partner in? Individual therapy is a great option for you! 

But, before you schedule your free 15 minute phone consultation, let me be up front… If you’re looking for a passive, smile-and-nod therapist then go ahead and close this page. I am not that… I tell it like it is. I’m fluent in sarcasm, think humor has a place in therapy, and am able to be compassionate without being an enabler. Because I want things to get better for you almost as much as you do.

Reach out to me if you are: 

Tired of being stuck and want to do something about it 

Motivated to make changes in your relationship and life

Appreciative of candid feedback, compassion, and sense of humor

Wanting to figure out WHY this is happeningso that you can break the cycle

Ready tostop making the same mistakesover and over again

Individual Therapy

You realize that you have your own stuff to work on that is impacting your relationship (or relationship status). You want to figure out your own baggage so that you can move forward and stop repeating unhealthy patterns in this relationship or another relationship in the future. Reach out if you’re single and searching, recently single, or unhappily coupled and want to create a life that feels right.

Couples Counseling Evanston

Couples Counseling

Marriage is hard. Even with the best intentions, relationships get off track. You’ve tried to improve things on your own and now you’re looking for some help. You want to communicate without things devolving into an argument and feel like you have a partner rather than a roommate.  It’s about time you loved being in your relationship. As a trained couple’s therapist, I can help.

Discernment Counseling

You were considering couples counseling but one of you is unsure about whether you want to be in the relationship. Divorce is on the table and you’re trying to figure out if this marriage is salvageable or it’s time to call it quits. Discernment counseling is a short-term therapy designed to help couples in this situation find clarity and confidently make a decision about the future of the marriage.
