You're tossing and turning with your mind churning over What Ifs or moments that haunt. You feel stressed or overwhelmed; a sense of dread always lurking in the background. Maybe you're snapping at people or pushing them away. It might seem like everyone else is able to do things so much easier or better. Sometimes it seems like you're moving through thick fog. But it doesn't have to be this way.

I have been in practice since 2002, helping adolescents, adults, couples, families and groups. I work collaboratively with clients from a biopsychosocial perspective, using the interrelationship between the mind and body as a focus for treatment. As a medical psychologist on staff at Swedish Hospital in Chicago, I am better able to diagnose and treat psychological issues that also can lead to physical disorders and medical conditions that have concurrent psychological impact.

I am passionate about helping individuals work towards personal growth and increased satisfaction with life. I believe in a collaborative approach, that meets clients where they are at, and using compassion, respect, and humor to develop a therapeutic relationship. Using a nonjudgmental approach to help individuals more clearly see the habits of the mind that create unnecessary suffering and offer strategies to reduce their negative effect. Utilizing Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Mindfulness I help client's learn skills to increase understanding of thinking and behavior patterns, and learn coping strategies for emotion regulation, stress management, communication, problem solving, and relaxation.

I offer comfort, counsel and clarity to individuals and families facing medical illness, grief, loss and bereavement, and/or life transitions. Companioning folks on these journeys allows me to help them lessen their sense of isolation, to help identify and utilize their strengths, and to manage difficult emotions. Frequently clients are overwhelmed and need help sorting through stressful feelings and situations. Once that is accomplished, much progress is made. In life transitions, identifying and touching the emotions and then re-establishing a life-plan are often the primary goals, crafted to the client's unique needs.

You feel irritable and wonder whether you will ever be your old self again. You may question whether you are doing enough, are coping with a loss, or resent your partner for not helping. When you thought about starting a family, this is not quite what you expected. Nothing prepares us for motherhood, or the other curveballs life throws. Since 2005, I have met many women who think everyone else has it all together. The good news is that you can get relief from feeling overwhelmed.

In my work, I support my clients’ growth in awareness, sense of agency, resilience, interpersonal skills, and confidence in their abilities to meet their goals. I don’t give advice or pretend that I have all of the answers, because firstly, I don’t have them, but really because I believe that each person is the true expert of their own life.

I've always sought mentors to guide me through life's trials, and luckily found many along the way. Now I pass on the sum of their wisdom along with my own. Therapy, a process of healing, happens through shared presence and expanding awareness. It's a safe place where truth can be expressed and pain transformed. We typically cope with pain through distraction, intoxication or denial. Learning to be emotionally sober we can heal our relationships - with ourselves and others. "Process" addictions, loss, trauma and shame are respectfully addressed. Empowerment, clarity, healing and comfort with emotional intimacy are consequences.
