About

Contentment and happiness can often feel elusive in the busy, complicated lives that we lead. Sometimes, understanding the reason for our unhappiness seems just as elusive. The way we feel about our true selves as well as the meaning we give certain events in our lives can effect how we cope with the challenges that come our way. Often, we find ourselves in situations that feel beyond our control to recover from. Deep down, you are resilient, and know life could feel better than it does.
I enjoy working with the spectrum of eating disorders from teens through adults, as well as working with depression and anxiety based disorders. I believe that therapy is collaborative, a journey developing resiliency and healing, while offering hope. Together, we will work to turn struggles into opportunities.
Served as a past president of the Chicago board of The National Association of Anorexia Nervosa & Associated Disorders-ANAD. Member of The International OCD Foundation.
