"I am passionate about walking with, and supporting folks who, despite their successes, are confused by their lack of true joy or meaning in this life. So many of us wrestle with feeling deeply unfulfilled and real difficulty finding lasting and nourishing connection with others. Far too many of us then struggle privately, which rarely leads to less struggle. My mission is to create a space that feels safe and accepting where your individual struggle can be seen, accepted, understood, and worked out in a way that brings you a sense of peace."

"As a psychologist, I believe that the most important factors in therapy are a good fit for the client and a working relationship where clients feel heard and understood. In working with clients, I start with learning about what a person's life looks like, both what is working and what clients would like to change. I often describe the work as a client and myself examining the different sides of an issue together, and that it is the client who decides what to do with the information."

By exploring one’s inner landscape of emotions and desires as well as one’s life experiences and circumstances, one can grow toward deeper self-awareness, enriched relationships, and healthy approaches to challenging life experiences. I value each person’s distinct experience and goals, working collaboratively to create a path towards growth and healing.

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.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Chicago are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Chicago you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Chicago and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Chicago or family therapy in Chicago.
