Do you ever look at those people who seem comfortable in their own skin—who really seem to know themselves, have a sense of humor and purpose, feel confident in getting their needs met—and wonder what their secret is? It’s probably therapy! Therapy is truly one of the best ways to assist in developing a healthy relationship with ourselves. A relationship where we are more fully seen, cared for, and supported. When we are able to tackle what life throws at us with that fundamental relationship being a solid one, there is a ripple effect that can reach to the furthest, most unexpected parts of our lives.

I am a clinical psychologist with 33 years of experience. I earned my PhD from Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine and have worked in various clinical settings at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Over the past seventeen years, I have devoted myself exclusively to my private practice. The primary difficulties I treat involve anxiety, stress, depression, and conflict in relationships. I work collaboratively with patients in identifying problem areas and therapy goals. Depending on an individual's unique circumstances, therapy might be as brief as a few sessions or as lengthy as many years.

Therapy is an active and collaborative process that can look and feel different to everyone. Regardless of the reason that brings you to therapy, within the therapeutic environment, the unique lens you experience the world through is valued and embraced. It takes work, time, and energy to explore and share parts of yourself with someone else. To honor your commitment, I will create a safe, judgement-free environment to support you, though at times it can be uncomfortable and challenging. You are in control of what is or isn’t explored or tried because of your individual preferences, readiness, or comfort.

I view psychotherapy as a collaborative partnership through which clients further develop and enhance their abilities and strengths. My hope is that clients become more cognizant of the internal and external elements that influence their well-being, and serve as energizers and/or drainers in their functioning across various settings. I work with clients to explore their wishes, clarify their goals, and create and implement plans to attain their objectives. In the process, I provide clients support and encouragement in a manner that is genuine, straightforward, thoughtful, and non-judgmental.

As a psychologist and psychoanalyst I work with children, adolescents and adults of all ages in a strength-based and relationship-engaged process. With both children and teenagers, I always include parallel work with parents to support and improve communication and understanding. My approach is grounded in a development perspective that appreciates the essential connection between body and mind and recognizes how past experiences and relationships, as well as things outside of our conscious awareness, influence our present-day feelings and behavior. I have successfully worked with persons of all ages who wish to avoid or discontinue the use of psychotropic medications.

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.
