I have been working in the Chicago area with communities of different populations since 2010. My experience is largely with adolescents and young adults, but I also work with elementary age children as well as families and individuals with special needs. In my sessions, I like to utilize Art Therapy and mindfulness to help my clients learn to process their emotions and thoughts in a unique way. Areas that can be processed through art therapy can vary depending on client needs, but can include- trauma and acute stress, anxiety and depression, changes in family, academic difficulties, and much more.

I incorporate emotionally focused therapy, family systems, attachment theory, positive psychology, CBT, DBT, mindfulness and relaxation skills.
In my practice I specialize in providing therapy to couples, families, men and adolescent males. My work with couples helps with conflict due to recurrent communication problems, infidelity, financial stresses, intimacy, etc. With families, we address lack of closeness, external pressures, trauma, and changes from maturity of children. My style is interactive and direct. As an older male, I am readily able to help with relational, parenting and career challenges. Men require a therapist who has journeyed through the vagaries of life understanding the attendant joys and failures.

Central to my practice is the belief that all of us deserve respect no matter our histories, and have within ourselves the wisdom for peace and healing. Our individual journeys are at times celebratory and at other times heartbreaking. We may not always be able to choose the circumstances we face such as illness, or the end of a relationship. Instead, we can choose what we are going to do about our challenges. We can choose how to integrate this information into our overall life stories for greater joy, creativity, and balance.

Are you struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Are your relationships dissatisfying or unmanageable? This may be due to a lack of boundaries and ineffective coping skills. Finding a therapist who you can relate to, you can trust, and be yourself with is the first step on the journey to reaching your goals. For the past 29 years I have focused my work on alcohol and drug abuse/dependence and narcissistic abuse and relationship loss/trauma.

Selecting a Therapist to partner in your journey of self discovery and change is an important decision. I have close to 30 years of experience treating adolescents and adults with a wide range of issues. My experience has taught me that people have a great deal of internal wisdom, but sometimes need assistance in accessing and utilizing that information. In 2012 I founded Reflections Psychotherapy: Seeing, Freeing, Being. This name mirrors many aspects of my treatment approach.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Therapists
For clients with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.
