Relationships can be a powerful source of fulfillment to draw from in our lives. Miscommunication, old patterns, unrealistic expectations and daily stress sometimes step in, preventing them from providing that happiness and strength. Therapy can break down barriers to improve communication, decrease conflict and increase emotional and physical intimacy. I specialize in the respectful treatment of relationship and sexual concerns, utilizing an open, honest, and sex-positive approach to help assess your unique personal goals and assist you in developing more positive and fulfilling relationships- with yourself and with partners.

"A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step." Ancient Chinese philosopher, Lao-Tzu. Let's face it: asking for help isn't always easy, but you've taken the courage to do so. Therapy is an exciting experience of self-discovery! As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), I work with adults, individually or as couples. I use a bilateral approach, incorporating a Strength-based practice with a focus on the mind/body connection, in particular Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). I assist clients in noticing, when automatic processes are occurring & to alter their reaction to be more of a reflection.

Often when people start working with me they tell me intellectually they know how to handle something but emotionally they are stuck and keep doing the same unhelpful things over and again. Other times, people come in not knowing why they feel as they do, but they just want to feel better. Initially, couples frequently report having the same problem or argument. By collaborating with my clients, I help them work through what is getting in the way of healthier functioning and relationships. I take a systemic, integrative perspective, informed by research, utilizing a variety of approaches so that I can best meet your needs.

Do you feel like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh? Your outlook on life is gloomy at best. When your mood and energy are low, it’s hard to get excited to show up for your life. Maybe you’re attracted to risk, and as such, using drugs/alcohol to the point where it's derailing your life? Does food control you or do you use food to control your life? There’s also the worrier. Does your stomach ache, your palms sweat, or maybe the spinning in your head is nonstop about whether or not to take a certain action. You get stuck in paralysis due to all of your analysis. In all this madness, there’s no time to thrive; merely survive.

I'm fully empathic with the emotional suffering that comes with being human. I always approach whatever my client comes in with from the perspective that they are right to be having the emotional experience they're having; i.e., there are reasons for it. No judgment. No blame. As I engage in a therapeutic alliance with them, we explore together for understandings and meanings to learn those reasons, which no one can do alone. Through the alliance with me as a trusted professional, my client gains early symptom relief and is fostered in higher functioning through feeling better.

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 and communities, including the BIPOC community in Chicago. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Chicago
