~ No current availability ~ You may feel increasingly more anxious, overwhelmed, or possibly depressed. Life may even feel unmanageable. You might find yourself trying to fill internal voids with external things, such as alcohol, drugs, food, sex, or relationships. Experiences from your past could leave you feeling stuck in your present. Change can be terrifying, and taking that first step may feel impossible. * I became a therapist in Chicago to help others see their worth and start to take ownership of their lives. Despite what that non-stop loop of negative self-talk in your head may tell you, you are good enough just as you are.

Consideration of entering therapy can feel like an overwhelming task, especially if you are struggling, feeling like "nothing will change", in transition or have been hurt in previous relationships. I provide a safe, trusting and non-judgmental environment in which we work together on your challenges. While I bring knowledge and experience to our work, you are the expert on you: your goals and feedback on the process will drive our work together.

Glennon Doyle says it best: "I see your fear, and it's big. I also see your courage, and it's bigger. We can do hard things." Together we can build a safe and collaborative space that fosters growth. Life can be messy, even demanding; we will have hard days. And that’s okay. I approach therapy with patience, compassion, and humor. Tears and silence are so welcome here. My training is in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) through a trauma-informed lens. I fully believe that each individual requires a personalized therapeutic approach.

Sometimes life feels like one big mass of tangled yarn. Perhaps there are times you can untangle the yarn yourself, while other times you need more hands. Reaching out for help is the first step and a huge sign of strength. I approach therapy as a partnership between therapist and client. I strongly believe in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship as well as a safe space to grow and heal. I aim to create an environment that allows my clients to feel supported and encouraged to reach personal goals and live meaningful lives.
