How We Help

We know it takes a lot of vulnerability to open up and talk about sensitive topics in therapy, so our first priority is creating a comfortable and home-like environment where you can feel heard without judgment. 

We understand that some of our patients are recovering after bad experiences in therapy, so we try to see who you are as a whole person, not just your diagnosis. We make an effort to get a clear picture of the real causes that have brought you to the present moment so we can help in the most effective way or connect you with the resources you need. 

Take a look at a few of our specialty areas to see if Bridgeview is a good fit for your needs right now:

“The most curative factor in therapy is the relationship between the client and the therapist. Therefore, I strive to create a safe environment where you can feel safe to explore both past and present events that are holding you back from attaining your dreams.”

Life Challenges

Click on the headings below for more information on common life situations that we help our clients navigate. 

Trauma Healing
Emotional trauma is the lasting effects that can result from experiences that made you feel extremely unsafe either physically or psychologically. Damaging experiences like abuse, sexual assault, accidents, natural disasters, chronic medical conditions, crisis situations, chronic medical conditions and life-altering diagnoses such as cancer as well as emotional pain from toxic relationships, discrimination or humiliation can leave you with symptoms that look a lot like depression and anxiety. Nobody deserves to carry around the extra weight of traumatic stress, and trauma-informed therapy can make the difference between surviving and thriving.

Our trauma specialists begin by establishing a safe and judgment-free space for you to talk about traumatic memories in complete confidentiality. Throughout your treatment, you’ll identify what “triggers” strong emotions, learn about what’s happening in your brain and nervous system and learn some new skills for dealing with overwhelming feelings so you have more control over your life. 

Emotional Regulation
Learning emotional regulation skills empowers you to make better decisions that recognize and honor your emotions, but aren’t ruled by them. This is especially helpful for people with conditions like bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder and traumatic stress. In practice, emotional regulation means understanding what your body is telling you when you feel extremely high or low levels of energy or ability to focus. It’s also an awareness of things like trust, boundaries and communication in relationships and participating in ways that are healthy for everyone. You don’t need a diagnosis to learn these skills and see a positive impact on your relationships with yourself and others.
Meaning & Purpose
Meaning and purpose serve as anchors that keep us going through tough times and give us a reason to prioritize wellness and self-care. Due to life circumstances or conditions like depression, borderline personality disorder or chronic illness, some of us need extra help developing and staying connected with these motivating beliefs. Your Bridgeview therapist can ask you guiding questions to dig deep and discover for yourself: what do you value? What inspires you to set goals and keep moving forward? You’ll also take an active role in strengthening your sense of purpose and using it to find meaning in situations you face on a daily basis.
Chronic Illness

Because mind, body and spirit are so deeply connected, serious health conditions and chronic pain can cause mental anguish in the forms of depression and anxiety. Your mental health is just as important as what’s going on in your body. We believe in an integrated approach to healing that accounts for all aspects of wellness and comes together as one complete picture of your healing journey that’s manageable and affirming. You’ll learn mindfulness and self-soothing practices to help you move at your own pace, take care of yourself, respect your own limits and ask for help when you need it. With this heightened awareness, you’ll shift from an automated way of assessing the symptoms related to the illness to a more accurate and measurable method.

Life Transitions

Passing through each stage of life from early childhood, adolescence, adulthood, middle age and beyond comes with big changes in identity, function, purpose and day-to-day activity. Nobody has all the answers, but these are common experiences that no one should struggle through alone. It’s more than okay to seek out help with navigating the complexities of entering each new phase of life and learning how to find meaning in those experiences. You may work with your Bridgeview therapist on transitions you’re going through as an individual, a partner in a relationship or a member of a family.
