I am Licensed Clinical Psychologist specializing in children, adolescent girls, families and woman. I have been working with families on Chicago's North Shore and surrounding areas, for almost two decades. Although my training emphasized an Adlerian approach to therapy, I have a broad range of experience with many therapeutic modalities and am able to tailor my practice to the needs of you or your family. I believe in treating the "whole-person," which means a one-size-fits-all approach will not work.

Sometimes people aren't sure what to work on in therapy. That's okay! We will work collaboratively to identify core concerns, and decide together how to address them. Some issues I've helped people work through include depression, grief, pregnancy loss, life transitions, creative blocks, self-esteem, disempowerment, and spiritual alienation. My approach is insight oriented and relational, and while I am an art therapist, my work is not always art-based. However, as an artist, I've found that my understanding of the creative process illuminates many life situations that benefit from creative problem-solving.

It may be a new role, a disappointment at work, a problem in a relationship, or some lasting echoes from the past that still show up, that causes us to feel anxious, angry, sad, confused and “stuck”. We try our best to manage by using coping strategies that turn out to be more problematic than helpful. We are then left thinking, what happened? Will I ever feel like my old self?

I believe growth and change are natural to all people. But when depression, anxiety, stress and the lingering effects of difficult childhood experiences direct all our energy to protecting from and avoiding more pain and fear, the natural process of development is blocked. I believe it is my role to support you in freeing yourself from blocks to your development and achievement of your life goals. As a Drama Therapist and Clinical Counselor, imagination becomes the route to your true nature– courageous, curious, confident and connected.
