Warm, compassionate, and experienced, I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 10 years treating adults, children and adolescents, and families from diverse backgrounds. I treat anxiety, depression, eating disorders, trauma, PTSD, ADHD, behavioral concerns, school issues, relationship challenges, and adjustment difficulties. I also help individuals navigate life transitions, for example, young adulthood, becoming a couple, or starting a family. I use insight oriented, cognitive- behavioral, and family systems approaches. I am certified in psychodrama and am trained in several other specialty treatments, including Gottman Couple's therapy, Prolonged Exposure for PTSD, Trauma Focused-CBT, and evidenced based parenting strategies.

People enter into therapy for a variety of reasons such as; having experienced a recent or past trauma, struggling with anxiety, depression or a life altering event. Ultimately, we all want to feel better and live more productive lives. I believe that therapy is a collaborative endeavor which takes place in an open and non-judgmental environment. My role is to help clients gain a deeper understanding of themselves, what motivates their behaviors and how they can bring about the desired changes.

Making that first appointment takes courage. You may feel defeated or hopeless. Your coping mechanisms have sort of worked, but you know you are more than this outer shell. You want to do more than just "survive," and you need a safe place to explore how to get there. My job is to take that journey with you, to help remove self-blame, to foster appreciation for your strengths, and to help you find the answers within. My approach is flexible and my goal is to help you connect to all facets of yourself--body, mind, emotion, culture, and spirit.

Come as you are - therapy can be what you need in this moment! Stress and anxiety can really add up over time and spill into every part of your life. If you can, steal some time back for yourself. Therapy can be your place to set goals, decrease anxiety, and have someone truly listen to you. At the end of your therapy journey, my hope is for you to be practiced in empowering yourself to advocate for the things you can change in your life, and actively work towards accepting the things that you can't.

We live in a fast-paced, increasingly abbreviated, and relentlessly future-oriented society that upholds certain life trajectories and promises swift and universal solutions to all of our problems. However, during our darkest hours, things can take a disorienting turn when we try to make sense of all of the moving pieces. We find this world of contradictions overwhelmingly turbulent and polluted with uncertainty. We isolate, we reach out, we give up, we try to survive- the answer is never clear. Life becomes exhausting, suffocating and at times, unbearable.

Therapy is a unique opportunity to focus on yourself and begin down the path to a healthy, more fulfilling life. Working collaboratively with a therapist can help you to explore patterns, relationships and ways of functioning that no longer serve your best interest. This exploration can lead to the strength and confidence necessary to make changes and regain focus in your life. Therapy is an emotionally safe place that will allow you to heal as you address difficult issues, gain clarity, and become reacquainted with your authentic self.

You deserve to feel better and to see real benefits from therapy. Oftentimes we are looking for insight and tools to help us feel better, but we’re not sure where to look or what to try. Feeling disconnected to yourself or others, worrying too much, feeling stuck or avoiding certain aspects of life can be common experiences but they don’t have to define our lives. Together we will assess your concerns and develop a tailored plan that will help improve your quality of life and yield lasting change.

"The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are" (Jung). As a bilingual (Spanish/English) and bi-cultural Jungian Psychoanalyst and psychotherapist, I help people to consciously reconnect with their inner life in order to heal themselves. While damage to such connection usually creates a variety of psychological difficulties, reverence to the inner wisdom is a contemplative stance of active listening to the interior music that heals and that connect us with the immensity of our inner life. The inner life has an intelligence that corrects and compensates the psychological imbalances that have created emotional challenges.

The unique experiences, expectations, and traits of each person require an individualized approach to psychotherapy. As I work with an individual my approach may include elements of modern psychoanalysis, cognitive behavior therapy, family therapy, and client centered counseling. I utilize recent research in neuro-psychology to inform the various theories of psychotherapy. Faculty members, students, and creative individuals, as well as foreign nationals and first and second generation Americans are groups with whom I have significant interest and experience. A special interest of mine is facilitating the growth of individuals who want to change long term problems with self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, anxiety and depression.

What type of Chicago mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Chicago?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
