I utilize family systems, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness and psychodynamic theory in my practice and seek to develop a collaborative relationship with my clients.
I focus on helping clients discover core strengths and achieve greater self-awareness. I believe that when negative patterns are identified, clients can begin the process of uncovering root causes of dissatisfaction. In a safe and non-judgmental environment, clients can learn new tools and make conscious choices to create healthy relationships and improve overall well-being. I look holistically at the mind-body connection and encourage healthy lifestyle changes along with mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Approaches include DBT and CBT skills to enhance coping while utilizing relational, internal family systems and emotion focused therapies to reshape the past.
Our worlds are chaotic, messy and sometimes cruel. As a result it is easy to unknowingly repeat that disorganization in our own lives. My goal to challenge these patterns of behaviors and relationships that may be keeping children, adolescents and emerging adults stuck. My specialty is working with strong personalities who have difficulty communicating their emotions with others, often relying on their behaviors alone to do so. My clients are quirky children who have ADHD, trauma, self injury, suicidality and mood disorders in addition to adolescents and college students who struggle with identity formation and healing the past.

In my work with clients I take in consideration how the role of family systems, cultural values, oppression, and stigma shape their experiences.
Feeling overwhelmed with work, life? or going through a difficult transition? Talking to family and friends could be helpful at times, but the support and expertise of a therapist can be meaningful when you want to focus on you, your emotional well-being and individual growth. Everyone deserves the opportunity to heal from past and/or current issues, and feel empowered during the process of finding what works for them and their unique situation. I invite you to be brave and take the first step to a better and stronger you!

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I have been trained to work with a variety of different clients and the concerns that bring them into therapy. I work primarily from a strengths-based approach, so while we are often discussing problems and what isn't working well, I also take the time to discuss successes and what has been working well. I believe that we can usually find solutions to problems by exploring past experiences that may be similar to the current situation.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Chicago view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
