~ 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.

Therapy is an exciting experience of self-discovery! As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I work with adults, individually or as couples. I use a bilateral approach, incorporating a Strength-based practice with a focus on the mind/body connection, in particular Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). I assist clients in noticing, when automatic processes are occurring & to alter their reaction to be more of a reflection.
