Midwest Vision Quest Counseling
My passion is to aid others in aligning the lives they are living with the path of the soul. People seek therapy for all sorts of reasons, and I believe that essentially most are unsatisfied, unhappy, frightened, confused, angry and/or simply suffering with a frustrating lethargy with life. My intention as a therapist is to create a reflective space that will allow my clients to develop and actualize a greater sense of meaning and purpose for their lives. Depth psychotherapy, and meditation, like the age old vision quest can be your key to illuminating innate capabilities that are quite likely begging attention through emotional, psychological, and/or physical symptoms.
Working with adolescents and adults I utilize such techniques as EMDR in order to begin healing past traumas. Dream work, active imagination and focusing, are wonderful methods for exploring the issues beneath the surface, that might be keeping us from making positive and lasting change. Often we aren’t even aware of the real issues, just pain or discomfort, and it takes some patience with oneself to explore our own thoughts and feelings. I love working with people who stand at the crossroads of change. Discovering a deeper sense of self can be both exciting and frightening and having an objective advocate trained to listen to the yearnings of the Self can prove fruitful. I have offices in Lake Villa and Libertyville, provide free phone consultations, and would certainly look forward to walking along side you on Life’s sacred journey.
