About me

As a licensed therapist in Illinois with over two decades of experience in counseling and coaching, I've had the privilege of assisting individuals facing a diverse array of challenges. From abrupt life shifts to career obstacles, anxiety, depression, relationship strains, parenting dilemmas, and grief and loss, I've supported clients in navigating through these difficulties. Many have sought my guidance to process and glean insights from their present hardships.

My therapeutic approach is characterized by compassion and honesty. I tailor my methods to your specific needs and the objectives we co-create. My primary aim is to expedite your progress, providing relief from immediate stress while propelling you towards your broader aspirations.

Embarking on a journey towards a more gratifying and joyful life requires courage, especially that crucial first step towards change. Setting and working towards goals alongside a therapist-partner demands even greater courage. If you're prepared to take that leap, I am here to bolster and empower you.

I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to collaborate with you on this transformative journey!

Dr Cain has been very helpful with showing me how to manage my anxiety as well as stress. She listens and is very empathetic. She's very helpful with helping me create a solid plan for my life events, and give's me assignments to work on. Without her I don't know how I would manage all of the things that I have going on.

Dr. Cain is the first therapist in a long time that has dove directly into what my needs are. She is STELLAR. Listens gives active feedback and circles back around to previous concerns. By far my favorite therapist I’ve had ever.
