Are you contemplating leaving your marriage or in the process of divorce? Are you stuck but trying to move forward after a break-up?

Many of my clients come from other nations, where the norms are different and people live more communally. Most of my clients also have a history of trauma, narcissistic abuse, or issues stemming deeply from their childhoods. These issues and traumas add a layer of complication to an already challenging day to day life. What all of my clients have in common is that they feel anxious, panicked, powerless, and hopeless about their situations. I can help.

The process of change and development occurs optimally in the context of an empathic therapeutic alliance. My areas of specialization include depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, identity confusion and problems of unfulfilled development. I believe that effective treatment involves a process in which doctor and patient work together both to understand current problematic patterns and to facilitate new ways of being and relating.

The weight of your daily responsibilities and tasks can be overbearing. You may feel as if you have no control and fear is starting to set in. At times your past comes to haunt you and guilt and shame can rear its ugly head. Perhaps you find yourself in limbo, trapped between two cultures. Your family riddles your waking life with obligations and expectations from the motherland. And yet your innermost desires cater more to a modern “American life”. Living between two worlds can at times be a difficult balancing act and you feel as if you do not fit anywhere.

Narcissistic Personality Therapists
Narcissists cut a wide, swashbuckling figure through the world...even in Chicago. At one end of the self-loving spectrum is the charismatic leader with an excess of charm, at the other end reside individuals with narcissistic personality disorder, whose grandiosity soars to such heights that they are manipulative and easily angered, especially when they don't receive the attention they consider their birthright. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of self...and mirrors. Narcissistic mothers or narcissistic daughters are a common discussion in therapy, although beware the temptation to use the label because we all have a sense of ego. Personality traits related to narcissism include: Psychopathy, and Machiavellianism.

Chicago narcissism therapists can help work through the issues of being, or knowing, a narcissist. As narcissism counselors in Chicago they are experienced in guiding clients in dealing with this disorder.
