People often call my style humanistic and collaborative.
Most of my clients, both individuals and couples, come to me seeking to have their perspectives understood, so they can better understand themselves and their relationships. As this occurs, they are able to significantly improve the quality of their lives. I seek to create an atmosphere that promotes respect, understanding, responsibility, compassion, and creativity as people strive to live their lives consciously in ways that help them achieve the goals most important to them. To this end, I strive to have the utmost respect for the uniqueness of every individual and couple that I treat.

I draw from classical and contemporary psychoanalytic, existential, humanistic, relational-cultural, and mindfulness-based perspectives, and I am ever-cognizant of the role of culture in development, experiences, and needs.
Engaging in therapy is a courageous, commendable task. I have enormous respect for the individuals, couples, and families I work with, and endeavor to create a solid base of trust and a collaborative connection. Depending on your needs and goals, our work may focus on improving your quality of life, shifting patterns, and/or deepening your overall self-awareness. I find that, along the way, healing often occurs as one gains clarity and begins moving toward the desires, needs, and truths that may have gotten lost amidst the 'shoulds' and various other messages absorbed over time.

As a therapist, I believe in the power of self-awareness in helping people overcome adversity. Trained in Systems Therapy at the Family Institute at Northwestern University, my orientation is to use relationships to strengthen our understanding of one another, and of ourselves. I value the humanistic experience most of all, and strive to learn as much as possible about one's past motivations and ways of coping. I also believe that the therapeutic relationship is the key ingredient in effecting change. I use compassion and acceptance as tools to help create space for that change.

Self-exploration can be an intimidating task. I have the honor of accompanying my clients on such journeys, and collaborate with clients to develop a fuller understanding of themselves. I provide an honest, respectful and non-judgmental space for such reflection, in which we can sort through the elements of life that are difficult, whether that is a result of anxiety, depression, trauma, questions of gender or sexuality, grief, body issues, life transitions, illness or other difficulties. Through such work, I hope to foster authentic growth, change and lasting relief for my clients.

I take a humanistic approach to counseling and feel comfortable using a variety of counseling techniques to help you reach your goals and feel better.
My "ideal" client is anyone who is feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, "stuck," or simply seeking guidance on how to best handle a situation. I believe that overcoming any obstacle in life starts with understanding what the problem is and then looking at alternatives to deal with the problem. This is where I can help you. When you confide in a professional and receive positive regard and feel genuinely understood and not judged - maybe for the first time in your life - you often can start to think more clearly and ideas can spring to mind for dealing with your issues.

I integrate CBT, Psychodynamic, and Humanistic models and specialize in evidence-based, trauma-focused therapy.
Though each person’s experience is unique, a common thread is that not knowing where emotions come from adds to suffering. My hope is to provide a nonjudgmental place to better understand your emotions so that you can gain a sense of agency in creating a meaningful life. A meaningful life may involve feeling comfortable sitting alone with your thoughts, the past becoming less haunting, more effective communication in relationships, believing you are good enough as you are, or something else. Whatever you are working towards, I am here to support you.
