For example, neurofeedback (biofeedback on brainwave activity) complements psychotherapy, and is very effective for people with ADHD, pain, headaches, anxiety, depression, and emotional dysregulation.
I help people to improve their lives by building on strengths, teaching new skills, and increasing self-awareness. By carefully listening to you, and understanding both your situation and who you are, I tailor an approach based on your unique needs. I have 20+ years of clinical experience. My primary expertise is with personality and personality disorders, having written three books in these areas. In addition, special training in behavioral medicine lets me help people who have medical conditions reduce their symptoms, and cope with physical problems.

Daily life for some can be isolating and debilitating; taking the first step to ask for help requires courage. I deeply understand that coming to an office in Evanston to talk about life’s struggles can feel intimidating and even unwelcoming for some. As a strengths-based therapist and yoga teacher, I am interested in hearing stories from people who do not feel like they fit in, whether it is because they are trauma survivors, people with mental illness, people of color, queer folks, or people who have been historically marginalized. I understand that identifying as a trauma survivor can lead to additional marginalization.

My work is based in: brief, solution focused therapy; cognitive behavioral therapy; family systems; and Emotional Freedom Techniques, or tapping - an elegant practice that can bring about healing from trauma, loss, grief, anger, phobias, fear, stress, post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain, resistance to change, or dealing with toxic relationships.
Going through changes? Some are easier to navigate than others. Often experiences and patterns can limit your response to challenges and keep you stuck in unsatisfying relationships and situations. Together, in a safe and supportive environment, we can examine what has been working well for you and how your life might change by responding differently. We can work together to make the next stage of your life more fulfilling, empowering, and satisfying.

For over 20 years, I have worked with clients on relationship issues, life changes, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, recovery from illness and trauma.
There are times when we need to feel extra support, and when an outside view helps us to gain clarity and insight. Other times, we may want a guide to help us dig deeper into past issues in order to transform and grow. I listen to my clients and together we decide the pace of therapy. I create a comfortable environment that encourages growth and self acceptance. Developing a relationship based on trust, safety and compassion helps my clients to identify and address obstacles to inner strength.

I have specialized experience helping individuals and their loved ones navigate acute and chronic illness and injury, other physical health conditions, and pregnancy/postpartum challenges.
Life is full of changes, and sometimes navigating those changes can be overwhelming and we feel "stuck." At those times, talking through concerns in a safe, trusting environment can help us regain balance and perspective. I believe in the resilience of the human spirit and I strive to be compassionate, curious and collaborative as I help people adjust to changing circumstances, explore their feelings, and engage in mindful decision-making and planning for the future.

People who seek my services as a psychotherapist often feel stressed, stuck, or even hopeless. These feelings can stem from difficulties in personal relationships (couple/marital, parent/child, aging parents, boss), life transitions (parenthood, infertility, illness, career change), loss (of a loved one,employment), or self-destructive behaviors (abusive relationships, eating disorders, substance abuse). By analyzing the dynamics of these challenges in a confidential environment, utilizing time-tested theories, those with whom I work are often able to relieve their stress, "move-on" with confidence, and even see a clear path when previously all was bleak.

I believe individuals manage the best they can, but these efforts do not always naturally translate to happiness or self-fulfillment. Oftentimes, situations cause us pain and in response, we spend considerable energy safeguarding our vulnerabilities at the expense of our well-being. Managing emotional distress alone can feel overwhelming, which is why we often need help from a sensitive, knowledgeable professional.
