I am an experienced therapist who has been in practice 50 years treating depression anger, and anxiety in adults and couples. I have learned that a calm, non-judgmental atmosphere with humor when appropriate will enable my clients to grow and make constructive changes in a safe, secure setting. Therapy does not have to hurt or feel threatening. In my sessions with you, you choose the information that you share, and let things unfold at your own pace. Change can be scary. I follow your lead, and then help you to recognize and manage constructively a wide range of emotions. Anger, fear, guilt.

I work with people to help them manage depression, stress, anxiety, mental illness and cognitive challenges such as ADHD. I enjoy connecting with people and have a passion for helping people learn about their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. I tailor my treatment approach to the individual needs of each client. I have a strong background in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) but I use it more as a tool in a broader treatment context that is focused on the relationship I have with my clients. I also utilize mindfulness techniques, motivational interviewing, and dynamic interpretations.

Why does it always feel like the to-do list is never-ending and what’s done is never quite enough? You're diligent about keeping on top of things and it’s gotten you pretty far. Yet, you find yourself asking “I’m running myself ragged for THIS?” Work-life balance? Who has time for that! Well, you are not alone. Like you, the individuals I work with tend to be busy, successful, professionals who feel stressed, anxious, and unsatisfied and struggle with burnout and imposter syndrome. They seem like they have it all together but live in fear of dropping the ball while trying to juggle all the other ones in the air. Sound familiar?

Licensed in IL and IA. Sometimes I feel lonely in a crowd, even in a crowd of my friends. Sometimes I feel like nothing I do will ever be good enough. Sometimes when I walk into a room, I try to avoid eye contact for fear that I will be seen, yet deep inside, all I want is for someone to actually see me. Does this describe you? If so, you are not the only one. A lot of people feel this way, especially those who have experienced difficult childhoods. No matter how successful you may appear on the outside, it's hard to shake the "I'm not good enough" feeling.

Perhaps you are wondering if therapy is really for you. Are you feeling overwhelmed and unable to manage the negative thoughts and overpowering emotions that are impacting your ability to live a happy and peaceful life? Your feelings are valid, and they provide you with a clue to uncover what is working in your life and what is not. The experience of being stuck in this negative emotional cycle can seem unending and hold you back from reaching out for support. Therapy can help.

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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Chicago?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
