Individual Therapy

At evanston therapy group, we believe every individual has within him or her the ability to change, and that change is possible for any person who is willing to invest the time and effort into working with us to achieve it. We know that the foundation of all successful therapy, counseling, coaching and mentoring is a warm, empathic and mutually respectful relationship between therapist and client. We have seen the transformative power of that relationship.

Our clients are the best experts on themselves, and recognizing their knowledge and preferences, we collaborate with them to establish a course of action. We view counseling as a partnership between the client and the therapist. Working with our clients’ strengths and approaching each client as a unique individual, our job is to help our clients develop their self-expertise and self-healing power,so they can create more enriching, fulfilling and satisfying lives and relationships.

We believe a therapist actively participates in the therapeutic relationship, in addition to observing the process and offering expertise. We use a flexible, integrative approach in which we combine therapeutic styles in order to meet our clients’ individual needs. Realizing that change happens through a combination of insight and action, we focus on forming a close working relationship with our clients to create an environment where increased self-awareness and conscious choice can help people grow and reach their potential.
