About

I am the owner and psychotherapist at Essential Therapy Chicago. I've had years of experience helping clients grow and find emotional healing in private practice settings. In my work, I aim to create an open, welcoming therapy environment where clients feel empowered to make positive changes in their personal lives and relationships. I work with clients to identify their strengths and to set goals of therapy that are exciting and motivating. I base my practice on an integrative approach which allows me to not only provide short-term symptom relief and mood stabilization, but also to foster longer-term growth and self-explorations.
I offer individual psychotherapy for young adults and adults, primarily ages 18-40. I've had success helping clients who are struggling with a variety of issues, including trauma, sexual assault, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, parent-child relationship and family system issues, depression, anxiety, and adult ADD/ADHD.
I know that taking the first step to start therapy can be overwhelming. I work hard to help clients feel comfortable and understood from the first appointment through the end of treatment. Please feel free to contact me if anything in this profiles resonates with you, and we can set up an initial consultation. I look forward to working with you.
