Whether you are located in downtown River Grove, the suburbs of River Grove, other nearby places such as Franklin Park, Melrose Park, or anywhere else in Illinois, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Signs You Need Help with Abuse

Whether you’ve abused someone else in the past or you’ve been a victim of abuse, you may have some scars that make life difficult.

Here are some signs you need help with abuse:

  • You may be easily triggered to feel fear or panic.
  • You may hold a lot of anger toward the person who abused you.
  • You avoid talking about or doing anything that can remind you of your experience.
  • You blame yourself for your experience.

Abuse comes in many forms, including physical abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse, verbal abuse, and more (this is not an exhaustive list). No matter the type of abuse you are dealing with, Mental Health Match can help you find a therapist to get the healing process started and improve your life.

Something to know about my approach is:

I listen and bring curiosity to the session to guide our work. Most clients have never had someone listen or help them explore their values. I do not bring an agenda to sessions. Clients gain a better sense of who they are and quality of life.

Something to know about my approach is:

Self-compassion is a life-hack. Being hard on yourself can be automatic, often because we think it works in getting us where we want to go. When we look closer, it actually tends to get us stuck. Having empathy for ourselves works better every time.

FOCUS AREAS:
  • Anxiety
  • Childhood Trauma
  • Complex Trauma
  • Distress tolerance
  • Job related issues/stress
  • Life Transitions
  • Relationship Distress
