We live in a chaotic world. 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.

Empathy and Focusing are my special skills. You can begin to learn Focusing and other valuable skills in our work together. I studied with Dr. Eugene Gendlin at the University of Chicago. Everyone, growing up, learns some feelings are "bad." This produces obstacles to accurate perception. I am skillful at helping you find conflict-resolving passages that could remain hidden to you searching alone. With empathy, I work to create a safe environment in which you can explore feelings that may be difficult to approach on your own.

I practice contemplative psychotherapy, using mindfulness techniques to help clients access their own wisdom.
