My specialties are in couple's issues, anxiety, depression, grief and loss (particularly partner, parent, or child loss), chronic or terminal illness, as well as infertility and postpartum mood disorders. I enjoy treating issues related to parenting, including the complex demands placed on parents of disabled children. I’ve partnered with corporations to provide on-site therapy in the midst of workplace crisis and tragedy, as well as presenting on mental health issues in the workplace. My first book is coming out in spring of 2025 with Workman Publishing on the topic of disability parenting.
As humans, we are influenced, not defined, by our relationships and pasts. It is important to understand that link before we are able to successfully change our behaviors. As a therapist, I prefer a warm approach to therapy and love getting to know my clients. Lastly, I strongly believe that a healthy dose of humor makes therapy a lot easier!
I am a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, an LMFT (in IL, CO, and FL) and a graduate of the Family Institute at Northwestern. I'm an AAMFT approved supervisor and hold a certification in Perinatal Mental Health. I'm EMDR and EFT trained & recently taught a graduate course at Adler University on Perinatal Mental Health.
